Star Wars turns 35

Star Wars turns 35

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. I remember getting an issue of the Star Wars Fan Club newsletter “Bantha Tracks” in May of 1982 saying that Star Wars had turned five years old. The five-year mark is an interesting one because the years go by so fast. Here we are at […]

Life Trek – Star Trek turns 45 today

It’s hard to believe that Star Trek is 45 years old. Looking back at everything that’s influenced me over the years in a creative sense, it was Star Trek more than anything that drove me as far back as I can remember. My earliest recollection of Star Trek is watching it with my dad in […]

Sequel to Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos” coming

Growing up with an avid interest in astronomy, it was disappointing that there were no television shows about the universe. Oh sure, there was “Nova” and other shows, but they didn’t have the heart or sense of wonder that “Cosmos” had. “Cosmos” was an award winning television show by astronomer Carl Sagan which took the […]

Current tech catching up to Star Trek

Current tech catching up to Star Trek

In 1966, the technology used in the show seemed far beyond what could be made in the real world. In fact, some people didn’t even have […]
