Sta Trek Enterprise 15th Anniversary
Posted by Charlie_Admin

                     

September 26, 2001.
Star Trek Enterprise debuts. 
Hard to believe it's been 15 years since its premiere. 
Loved by a few, hated by many in it's day, it would go on for four seasons. Admittedly, I was one of the haters and never watched it after the pilot episode. 
Once it's original run was complete, it went into reruns on Syfy.
Of course, reruns can give you a different perspective on things. I started watching it. I realized I had been wrong, very...Read More

Annual FanCentral Beg-A-Thon 2016
Posted by Phil Friel_Admin

Well folks, it's September, and we've come to that time of year again when we have to renew the annual subscription to keep FanCentral ticking over for yet another year. So we reluctantly have to drag out the eternal Begging Bowl and beseech the always generous members of our little community to contribute what they can to keep the old girl chugging along.

I've set the ball rolling with my own donation, so it's now up to the rest of the membership to do what they can. If even as few as twenty members were to donate only $10...Read More

Star Trek at 50
Posted by Charlie_Admin

My goodness! 50 years sure do go by quickly!
I won't lie and say that I remember Star Trek from it's initial run on NBC. In fact, I knew nothing of Star Trek until around 1974, when it was in syndication. And even then, I don't honestly remember the first episode that I saw.
For one thing, I was about 5 when Trek first came on. For another, my family was not that big into science fiction television shows. So, Star Trek was not on the weekly viewing list and that contributed to my lack of knowing about it. 
Now,...Read More

The Man Trap: Our Introduction to Star Trek
Posted by Dennis Howard

" The Man Trap " was broadcast on NBC in the U.S. on September 8, 1966 (and September 6, two days earlier, on CBC in Canada). I know that I watched it then, but I don't have any specific memories of that viewing. I've seen the episode many times since then, starting with the syndicated Star Trek reruns in the 1970s. " The Man Trap " has never been a favorite episode of mine, but for this blog post I want to focus on how well it works as an introduction to Star Trek.

As an introduction to Star...Read More

Happy 50th Anniversary Star Trek!
Posted by Phil Friel_Admin

Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS) debuted in the United States on NBC on September 8, 1966, when I was five years old. It ran for three seasons, and was eventually cancelled due to "low ratings", much of which was caused by network interference during its second season, moving the show to the late Friday night "graveyard slot", which guaranteed low viewing figures and thus cancellation.

The show was actually cancelled at the end of the second season, but was brought back for a final  season due to a remarkable and then-unique massive fan-run campaign, led by ...Read More

Sci-Fi Cinema vs Sci-Fi TV - The Verdict?
Posted by Phil Friel_Admin

The last film that I went to see in the cinema was The Avengers , four years ago in 2012. Before that, it was X-Men: First Class in 2011,  Avatar and Star Trek , way back in 2009, and The Dark Knight , in 2008. Most films I don't even bother going to see in the cinema at all. All in all, I think I've been to the cinema no more than a half dozen times since my son died, back in April 2006.

There are various reasons for this. A major...Read More
