  1. Review: Kate Mulgrew Bares Her Heart in Her Memoir Born With Teeth

  2. Lacking Time Machine, Scientists Study Heart Disease in the 24th Century Through Star Trek

    Welcome, to the World of Tomorrow!

    Can we study all future science through fiction about the future? Because I hear that we mastered eugenics in the '90s, maybe we could use that genetics knowledge to eradicate some cancers, etc.

  3. How Does Your Favorite Star Trek Series Fare on the Bechdel Test?

    Which series fares best? Hint: It's WAY cool.

    A little over a year ago, with the help of a few other Trekkies I met through Tumblr, I took on a huge but super-fun project: running each and every live-action Star Trek episode—from The Original Series through Enterprise—through the Bechdel Test.

  8. Star Trek: Voyager Producer Dishes on Seven of Nine

    To Boldly Go

    [Voyager] needed a kick in the ass. Creatively, we needed something. A Star Trek series, in my opinion, is only as good as its captain, and Captain Janeway was a great captain, but she didn't have her Spock or Data, really. We just didn't have that special science-fiction character like Spock or Data, the striving-to-be-human character. The idea of putting a Borg on board gave us a chance to have a wild child there. That was the metaphor, a wild child, and Janeway would be her mother and try to tame her and help make her human again. That was a new take on that kind of character. That's not to diminish the Doctor, Bob Picardo's character. He was great, but he really wasn't a foil to Janeway. He wasn't someone Janeway could play off of. -- Brannon Braga to Braga goes on to call Kirk a sex addict. We'd classify him more in the horndog territory... like an honest and romantically successful Zap Brannigan. So... nothing like Zap Brannigan, I guess.

  9. Here Is a Look at Jordan’s $1.5 Billion Star Trek Theme Park

    To Boldly Go

    It's always fun to find out about the geeky predilections of public figures, like the discovery that Jordan's King Abdullah is a Trekkie. A serious Trekkie. As in, King Abdullah's fundraising arm is donating money to build a Star Trek theme park and resort in his country. CBS, Paramount, and Amman's Rubicon Group Holding (which makes animated films), are all on board to design this thing. And it's only going to cost $1.5 billion. It's good to be the king!

  10. Jeri Ryan on Her Triumphant Return to Sci-Fi: “This One Is Human”

    What It Says On the Tin

    Jeri Ryan, who was best known as the liberated Borg Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager, made a name for herself as a sci-fi actress before heading into the mainstream to do shows like Boston Public, Boston Legal, and most recently, Body of Proof. Her first big break was the UFO sci-fi conspiracy show Dark Skies (that was created to compete with The X-Files). But it's been years since Ryan has done anything in the sci-fi genre, and now she's going to be a guest star on SyFy's Warehouse 13 -- as a boring human. Well, maybe there's more to it than that.

  11. 10 Doctors Whose Titles Seem Largely Honorary

    Power Grid

    We have a pretty rigid definition of a doctor in the English speaking world. However, in the world of fiction, particularly science fiction, we another kind entirely: the kind that has no real post-graduate credentials at all, or at least none that are applicable in any way to their chosen profession, but who nevertheless insist on the title of "Doctor." Sometimes, we can let this slide, if the person is sufficiently open about the fact that they won't be delivering babies or taking out your tonsils with their whirly blue pen-light anytime soon. Sometimes, when your office's physician can be restrained by putting rubber bands on his hands, it's time to call some sort of advisory board.
