The Captain's Peril
To be perfectly honest, I didn’t expect much going into William Shatner’s CAPTAIN’S PERIL, but it might not be for the obvious reason.  Bill gets a lot of negative press about how (A) his books are vanity projects so they can’t be all that good and (B) he doesn’t even write them (it’s been disclosed that they’re heavily ghostwritten by Judith and Gar …
   (In an attempt to revisit all things classic to this Star Trek fan, I’m going to take some time over this lifetime to sound off on some episodes of all incarnations of Gene Roddenberry’s seminal science fiction franchise.  Along the way, I’ll try to keep things decidedly fascinating!)       For a whole lot of reasons, Star Trek’s (TOS) …

Harry Turtledove is a professional historian.  But he dropped out of CalTech.  So naturally he combined history and science and got alternate history science fiction.      Aliens invaded during World War II.  So we get historical figures like FDR, Hitler, Stalin, Enrico Fermi, General Groves of the Manhattan Project and of course General Patton fighing aliens from …

Star Trek - The Original Series, Episode 70: Let
"Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" is one of those Star Trek episodes that everyone knows about or has seen but nobody actually likes.  It has a memorable appearance by Frank Gorshin, cool make up, a memorable ending not to mention an important and brave anti racism message for a 60's television show, but one thing hurts the episode bad: the episode is SMOTHERED by this message.   …

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Redemption
   Look, as long as we’re being perfectly honest with one another, let’s get this out of the way: STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION’s best two-part cliffhanger was, by far, “The Best of Both Worlds.”  After that, you’re free to think what you want, but I thought they went downhill pretty fast.  Now, don’t get me wrong: many of their episodes …

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
It has been quite awhile since I've reviewed anything here on Lunch.  I've been extremely busy with life and job duties.  Those responsibilities have also limited a lot of my filmgoing experiences and I've pretty much been anchored to my house and/or work enviroment.      With that said, I decided I would return to Lunch with a loud bang by reviewing Star …

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
I might be the only person on Earth who liked this movie more than I liked Abrams' Star Trek 2009. Unfortunately, that's partly because I disliked the 2009 Star Trek. But Into Darkness does have stunning visuals, some fun moments, and a much more compelling villain. It seems overall that viewers who don't know much about Star Trek seem to enjoy this movie and Abrams' larger take on …

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
J.J. Abrams made quite a splash when he released 2009’s “Star Trek”. I suppose it was the right approach to revitalize the franchise, by creating a re-boot that gave him all the needed loop holes to do such things. His first “Star Trek“ flick left the ‘space opera‘ feeling and instead went for something that feels more like an action-adventure which was arguably …

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
I don't know what the critics were saying in their preliminary reviews.  I loved this film from start to finish and am looking forward to the next installment.  As the whole universe changed when Nero attacked Kirk's father's ship in the first film and that Vulcan was wiped out, one cannot expect that these movies should follow anything that the original series and movies did.  …

Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness (Part 4 of 4)
   I’ve already heaped plenty of praise on the story that was STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN – the four-part comic book story published by IDW Comics that, literally, set the stage for the events within JJ Abrams’ pretty solid STAR TREK (2009) motion picture.  Briefly, everyone whom I know that read that story AND saw the motion picture praised how the two tales worked in sync …

Star Trek Poster
What was your first impression? Very negative        Plot summary? A new cast of the characters having the same name is introduced with a new storyline. Kirk and Spock forge a friendship under fire.        What's the bottom line?      There are some bad moments that will turn off many long-term Star Trek fans but if that …

Star Trek: Enterprise
I should start this review by disclaiming a remarkable fact: I purchased the complete series of Star Trek Enterprise a few years back without ever having watched a single episode of the show during its broadcast run. I say this not because I seek your respect, admiration or pity (though were you to insist on either of the first two, I suppose I wouldn't complain) but rather to illustrate a simple …

Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness (#1)
      In early 2009, IDW Comics launched a terrific mini-series called STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN.  I couldn’t say how many comic book readers or Star Trek fans read it, but my opinion of it was that the production was stellar from start to finish.  In many ways, the mini tremendously complemented what was about to appear theatrically – that being JJ Abrams’ …

Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes
      Crossovers are not always an easy sell.  What might look like a stroke of genius bringing two separate worlds together on the face of it could just as easily backfire, leaving a blemish (or a stink) on both universes.  Thankfully, most writers who undertake such a complex task know more than a little bit about both sides of the intended crossover, and this greatly …

Star Trek: Hive (#1)
You’ll have to pardon me if I seem a bit cynical, but I, like an awful lot of other STAR TREK fans, aren’t exactly all that enamored with Brannon Braga.  Yes, as a screenwriter, Braga contributed to some of the THE NEXT GENERATION’s (TNG) legacy, but he also squandered an awful lot of the amassed capital with some horrifically subpar work on STAR TREK: VOYAGER and (even worse) …
