The Human Frontier

Launched in secret, The Human Frontier is a sleeper ship carrying over a thousand settlers. The world they’re heading for is uninhabited, light years away and the crew, fitted with neural AI assistants, are ready for whatever it throws at them. They tell themselves they’re ready… Written and directed by Big Finish’s Nicholas Briggs, The Human Frontier closes out

All Rise

The Clone Wars finished and Rise of Skywalker arrived on Disney Plus this week with the exact combination of joy for the former and ‘oh… hi…’ for the latter you’d expect. Rise is far more the traditional Star Wars movie than Rian Johnson’s defiantly, flamboyantly good space noir predecessor. In some ways — nearly all of them in the last twenty minutes — that’s

Strange, New, Needed

Late last week, some genuine actual good news was released. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is the new Star Trek TV show, focusing on the Captain Pike era of the Enterprise. Anson Mount’s definitive portrayal of Pike, Ethan Peck’s subtle and interesting new take on Spock, and Rebecca Romijn’s series-stealing hyper-competent Number One are all set to return. This command

Vivarium: Home Is Where The Art Is

Serendipity, like Ayn Rand, is a hell of a drug,just one that doesn’t mutter something about the free market while throwing you down a well. Instead, it means that a brace of horror movies that were already good have been made better by the frankly terrifying world circumstances in which they’ve been released. First we
