This year I started with a graphic novel that I missed when it came out in 2016. Which is actually weird because I love Star Trek, am a fan of the Kelvinverse, and have read all of the other IDW comics featuring the nu-Kirk and crew. This particular novel lightly touches on the time Kirk et. al were at Starfleet Academy. The primary focus being Uhura investigating an unexplained radio signal from deep space and asking Kirk to help out as it involved hacking classified […]
I set out to learn about Tig Notaro when she appeared on Star Trek: Discovery as the dry, hyper-confident engineer Jet Reno. I love this character so much that I went down the Tig Notaro rabbit hole and discovered she does not disappoint, and is possibly the only person worthy of depicting Jet Reno. I chose to do the audiobook version of her memoir, in part because I love her dry-Daria like delivery and wish I could truly perfect my like-I-give-a-fuck-about-emoting-monotone like she has. If […]
What if Kirk, Spock, and the others were cats? Well, you would have this picture book. Scotty, for instance, is of course a Scottish Fold. Park does wonderful illustrations from Classic Trek. There is, for instance, scenes from both “The Trouble with Tribbles”, and “Mirror, Mirror” – which is important because I love those episodes. And yeah, there is the Spock in heat thing. The book is short, but ideal for the devoted cat lover who is also a Trekkie.
This was a hefty brick of a book. It follows the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation through the 2016 release of Star Trek: Beyond, but because there was so much more Star Trek content created in the second twenty-five years of the franchise, this sucker clocks in at a whopping 843 pages. I read the first volume in a day and a half. This one took me six. Of course, this was also partially because this book not only had more content, but […]
I’ve been a fan of Star Trek since I was a child. The Original Series and the Next Generation were TV staples in my house; I devoured every episode, and watched them numerous times. My enjoyment continued into Deep Space 9, but died with Voyager and Enterprise, before being renewed again with the advent of Netflix, which allowed me to re-watch every episode from every series in the correct order (though, I still think Voyager and Enterprise are fairly weak shows). But until last year, […]
