Star Trek series set on a space station around Bajor remembered
Rick Berman and the late Michael Piller didn't have to look far to find inspiration for another Star Trek series. Saddam Hussein had set oil wells in Kuwait on fire as he withdrew as part of Operation Desert Storm, and both the allied American forces along with the Kuwaiti people were left to pic ...Read More
But could some of the backlash be from theater owners who would have to pay for upgrades?
Last September, independent filmmaker James Kerwin criticized Peter Jackson's announcement that he would film and display "The Hobbit" at 48 frames per second, far faster than the standard 24 frames per second that we see in nearly all films. "This is a foolish path," Kerwin, who wrote and direc ...Read More
Actress loves Star Trek and fandom, but is ready to move beyond that in 'R.U.R.'
It's been 13 years since "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" ended its seven-year syndicated run. But like anything else with the name "Star Trek" attached, it's still hard to get away from.

Series creators talk to Alpha Waves Radio
There's Facebook, there's Twitter and there's Google-Plus, the so-called epicenter of social networking. But is that where networking ends? No ... it's just the beginning.

Two Strips of Latinum: The recent video just not right in Dennis Rayburn's eyes

As a wise man once told me, Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone. However, humor is a very tricky art. One has to be very c ...Read More
See where BlipNetwork reporters are going to be!
Wow, I can't believe San Diego Comic-Con will be all over tomorrow. But first, we get to one of our busiest days, which doesn't feel like it, because I won't even be at the convention myself until around lunchtime when I hobnob with the voice and creative talent behind the recently revived show "Fut ...Read More
PLUS: Extra production week added in July to celebrate 'Warehouse 13' episode
Since its return last November, Alpha Waves Radio on BlogTalkRadio has been airing shows just twice a month. But in July, think about having a show almost every week. That's because San Diego Comic-Con -- the "super bowl" of science-fiction entertainment -- resides in the hot summer month, an ...Read More
