Is this really it?

This picture may show JJ on the Bridge. Anyone?

Holy Spoilers!

Chris Pine just revealed by accident - I assume - a teensy tinsy little spoiler - he has scenes with Leonard Nimoy.

This is not big, earth shattering news, but they've been so careful not to let anything slide that anything at all is huge.

Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger died today.

I've loved his work for some time, ever since I really became aware of him in A Knight's Tale. So this tragedy runs especially deep for me.

Also, I'm pissed because someone told me he O.D'd in Mary Kate Olsen's apartment.

Mary Kate Olsen!

This is the kind of rumoring that just makes bad celebrity gossip worse.

Anyway, here's to Heath Ledger. I really wish he'd been on Star Trek once.

A Lesson Learned

When I started this blog, it was intended as a purely nerdy outlet. And while I still intend that, I'm hoping to expand a bit. I've been reading Just a Geek and it's made me realize how much better these things are when you add your real life to them. So that's my promise to myself and to whatever loyal readers I have, to include more of myself in these posts.

Which means: Rant Time!

The other day my computer stopped charging. Just stopped. And then my identity was stolen. I'm kind of curious, in a morbid sort of way, to see what's gonna happen today. I mean, what did I do anyway?

Stupid stupid stupid.

It's just so annoying, I mean I just submitted to Trekdom *crosses fingers* and now my computer's busted and I'm working off a crappy borrowed computer that I can't even type on with out L....A.....G......

It sucks.

I found where I could buy the replacement part I need online but I can't buy it because my new debit card won't arrive for 8-10 business days.

The X-Files

There is no mention of Scully's pregnancy, but there's a little hint that Doggett has issues. Also we got to see him run, which is always a kick because it brings me back to when he was a Terminator and movies were decent.

Why do you call it that exactly?

I Am Legend

They said it sucked. They lied. While it's nowhere near perfect and the premise is from an era where you could write a book about a disease that turns people into vampires, it lacks several problems with previous incarnations. The vampires are NOT trying to take over the world this time, they just wanna eat. Robert Neville is played by someone hot, not someone with freakishly ginormous teeth, and there's a dog for you pet lovers out there.

Spoiler warning.

The dog dies. So does Will Smith.

Ultimately, it was way way better than The Omega man, which I had the misfortune of seeing six weeks ago.

And now I know why they call it that.

So that's it, folks. I saw it.And let me tell you: I now trust J.J.

Despite what they said on AICN, I see something diferent. J.j. shows that he understands sacrifice, which means that he understands love. Which means thatt he understands e and mine, namely the Trekkies.

I am scared, of course, for Star Trek, as I should be, but more than that, I believe that this movie can succeed in being a new era. I saw the trailer. I saw the Enterprise - my Enterprise - being built. I heard Leonard Nimoy's voice. And I believe.

And I saw the movie. I saw what J.J. Abrams can do - could do - if he puts his mind to it. And then I believed again, that Star Trek has a future.

And Cloverfield is what brought me that future. And for that, I will always owe it.

More than that, I liked it. For all the formula plot, it spoke. And what it spoke of was the things that I have felt in my own life - loving someone so much that you're willing to give up everything, even your own life and future, to see that they don't die alone.

And then there's the fact that there are no answers to be found - just like life. It doesn't wrap up in a neat little package. Everyone dies, and no one learns the answers.

Now, please, don't ruin it by making a sequel.

I seem to have made a very disturbing discovery

Star Trek: The Animated Adventures

Star Trek V is a ripoff of an ep of The Animated Adventures called The Magicks of Megas-Tu.

An episode, which, btw, is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

Murasaki 312

The Galileo Seven takes place in a "quasarlike" phenomenon called Murasaki 312. In the TNG episode "Data's Day", they are doing sensor observations of "the Murasaki quasar". That's continuity, folks.

Waiiiiting, little mammals!

How many of you remember "Prime Directive"?

Moving on.

Where is I'm waiting!
