It’s Weekday and that means it’s time for Midweek Trivia. Today, we look at a classic Next Generation episode, “The Wounded”
I saw a woman at the supermarket this afternoon wearing a shirt with this familiar striped pattern on it. I thought for sure it must be similar but couldn’t possibly be what I thought it was.
They might be talking Klingon in Cardiff, but a Scottish MP sought to bring the wisdom of the Kirk to a Westminster debate on the UK space industry. As representative for Central Ayrshire Philippa Whitford is championing plans for a new space port to be built in Scotland.
While neural networks are usually pretty good at identifying objects already in their data set, they can be hilariously bad when exposed to unfamiliar stimuli... say the opening credits of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I’m guessing this particular neural network was initially trained to identify common household…
According an Ars Technica article, Google had built a prototype wearable that would activate Google’s voice search with a tap (think Ok Google prompt in a button form). It wasn’t a stand-alone device as it needed to be paired with a smartphone, and its capabilities were limited to whatever Google voice search was…
The excitement that greeted the announcement of a new Star Trek series on CBS All Access didn’t quite reach Star Wars sequel levels, but fans are definitely talking. Of course, just like the reaction that accompanied The Force Awakens, enthusiasm is tempered by fear: what if the new series fails to meet expectations?
With yesterday’s news of a new Star Trek TV show premiering in 2017, the nerd-sphere collectively cheered. Although the Abrams movies have been visually stunning (with varying degrees of success as to the story aspects), Trek’s true home is television and the episodic format. Beyond that, there’s a lot of what we can…
Here we are , the end of Star Trek week. What better way to close things out than to look at the series finale “All Good Things”, where Picard’s mind is blown, grapes for wine are sewn, and Worf’s love life is boned
Yesterday, we took a look at what went on behind the scenes during the making of the Best Of Both Worlds Part 1. Today, we’ll conclude this look by diving into Part 2, here on Fact Of The Day.
Well it’s Wednesday and I decided this is the perfect time to discuss one of the best and most popular episodes in The Next Generations, “The Best Of Both Worlds”.....hang on a second. HEY GET OUT! OUT!....one second, be right back....OK WHERE’S THE TASER!?
Only thing missing from watching TNG on Netflix? Promos with awesome voice over dude for the next episode.
I thought I knew Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. After all, it has been my favorite movie for most of my life, ever since it came out in 1982. I’ve watched it more times then I can recount. (My sister was downright sick of it when we were kids! “You’re watching that again?”) It is one of the few movies I’ve deemed…
The ability of the human mind to create fantastic beings through the power of imagination is amazing. Throughout history, every culture has invented myths, legends, gods, and monsters to call their own. These days, much of that imagination is used on creating new worlds and new beings in science fiction. And often…
I guess you’ve been to an anime con then Father.
Star Trek: The Next Generation is now in HD and 5.1 on Netflix.
I got slammed hard at work on Friday and sadly was unable to get FOTD written. But I am back and ready to start off a new week with some new nibblets of trivia for your pleasure.
With such amazingly awful candidates in season one or two (space Arabs?) you’d expect the worst storyline to ever air was in one of those, but no, the later seasons had their fair share of stinkers too (space Native Americans?). However, specifically, this is a subplot storyline that carries on between two episodes in…
We’re ten years removed from the last time Star Trek was on TV, and, aside from free-floating rumors, we’re no closer to getting a new TV show.
So are you offering to write Fact Of The Day then Mr. Spock?
Yes, Fact Of The Day does that effect on people. Even when it’s several hours late. But better late than never, as my grand –pappy used to say.He also said that moonshine keeps the Martians from stealing your blood. I should probably reconsider the advice he gave me.
