“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

This is a fan film starring many of the cast from the franchise. Official site, IMDB. Even more Star Trek than you can shake a (sadly) empty bottle of Romulan ale here. Advertisements
I have just returned home from the Star Trek/Star Trek: Into Darkness double-bill at Cineworld in Crawley. The atmosphere was electric and both the staff and movie-goers were wonderfully enthusiastic. There was a raffle (that I did NOT win. Grrr) … Continue reading
Even Longer Trailer: Star Trek: Into The Darkness HD, Featuring Benedict "Vegetable-Man" Cumberbatch!
What is it with JJ blowing everything up? I swear JJ, this better not be Khan, Mitchell… or a clone. Or an android. EMG, it’s android, I know it is. Pretty please, no androids. Dammit, not Colonel Green either! Eh… … Continue reading
I’ve given up trying to guess who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing or if JJ’s boys will manage NOT to louse up the writing this time, I just wish villains could wear something other than sinister, long, black coats. Other posts … Continue reading
I got nothing else to share today, just too busy. Enjoy.
Future Run: Star Trek Sequel, Red Dwarf X, Dredd 3D, The Hobbit & Piracy: Wake Up and Smell the Celluloid
Star Trek Sequel– Will the sequel be a remake of The Cage, Khan: Blah and Meh, Where No Man Has Gone Before or whatever? Your guess is probably more informed than mine, but I’m still hungover. I just hope another … Continue reading
Sick: I managed to acquire some nasty bug after a fellow London Tube passenger managed to cough directly into my mouth. Public Transport: what can I say? Star Trek: ID: I have stocked up on Red Bull and caffeinated Lemsip … Continue reading
I’m a long-time listener to the excellent Women Talk SciFi podcast, but today I particularly enjoyed their interview of Jonathon Frakes. I didn’t realise he was quite so hard-working and earned his lumps before being allowed to direct episodes of … Continue reading
I was going to be all clever and put in a “real” stardate using one of the many online calculators put up by trekkies. But the only commonality between them is that they all come out with wildly varying dates. … Continue reading
Ever had a tune floating around your head? Something you just know sounds so great that if you can only turn it into a finished single, it will land you a contract with a major record label. If you have … Continue reading
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Neeson et al training- Star Trek: The Naked Time, Takei talking about fencing- The Matrix: Reloaded, Morpheus killing a car- See also- Light Sabres Might Not Exist, But… Thanks toobers.
A Scanner Nerdly Here are a few of my favourite things (and yes, I actually sang that line out loud): Toob? Star Trek, Blake’s 7, Doctor Who, Babylon 5, Thunderbirds. Flicks? 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), The Man Who Fell … Continue reading
Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocket ship ride through the Nerd-O-Mania Nebula… Whoosh! From the backroom of Altair City Spaceport’s Rocket Tavern, the Captain presents the UK show for the pop … Continue reading
Tonight I was kindly invited by Julie Kuehl, Mike McPeek and Jeff Syer as a guest on their SciFi Tech Talk podcast. Inevitably, and in the midst of really enjoying myself, Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor Who were, of … Continue reading
I’m just back from Milton Keynes annual Collectormania event and, wow, they really picked the right day for it. The sun was blazing, with not even the merest possibility of rain (for a change), as I pulled up in the … Continue reading
The next two “Sunday” shows will actually be recorded, edited and released two days early, i.e. on the immediately preceding Friday. The reasons are twofold. First, The Wolf of Wall Street opens in the UK tomorrow and I don’t want … Continue reading
Thus commences the beginning of the end of AMC’s brilliant show. In the first episode of the grande finale we see a long Star Trek themed dialogue about subjects only a Trekkie (like me) would get. This indicates, quite clearly, … Continue reading
I saw Pacific Rim today and I must have liked it too, because I couldn’t stop talking about afterwards. The premise is simple. Humanity creates and pilots giant warrior robots to fight giant alien monsters. A tribute to Japanese kids … Continue reading
I was bored last night so, after watching a couple of episodes of Black Books, I scrolled through some of the other offerings on 4OD and settled on the spy thriller Complicit starring David Oyelowo, formerly of Spooks– lateral casting or … Continue reading
I finally caved in and e-mailed SyFy- Dear SyFy I am an avid Blakes Seven aficionado. Back in July last year the internet was rife with news/rumours of an imminent SyFy remake. It is now almost half a year later … Continue reading

Yes, here it is, in all its dubious glory. As usual you can download the show utilising a veritable myriad of marvelous methods from here. In this week’s Christmas Edition we talk about: Seeking a Friend for the End of … Continue reading
Greeting Nerdlings, it’s the final show of the year! Parrrp! (Plastic trumpet fanfare sound, not digestive distress). The Christmas tree is already up (actually it never came down), so please join me for a couple of drinks as I talk … Continue reading
Hey, I LIKE TurboPascal, never got into Delphi, FreePascal’s bearable, but Lazarus IDE? There’s always some damn error trying to compile anything other than the simplest programs. This is obviously because I don’t really know what I’m doing, which is … Continue reading
Mr. No-mance – I’m one of those unmatchable guys. Whilst living in the UK, I joined the well known Desi dating site Shaadi.com. This site did get me dates, but seemed to produce the most unlikely of pairings. For example, … Continue reading
Gordon Bennett! It seems like only yesterday that Guy Ritchie rebooted Holmes, then Sherlock came to the BBC and now there’s another one! This time Johnny Lee “Sickboy/Zero Cool” Miller and Lucy “Luscious” (just made that one up) Liu take … Continue reading
These are the two Marvel pocket books that directly led to my life-long Spiderman obsession. They came into my possession magically around the age of seven or eight. I say “magically” because I cannot honestly remember how I got them. … Continue reading
These things are always in a state of flux, but right now- Movie – 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick Book – Kane: Dark Crusade by Karl Edward Wagner Comic – Watchmen by Alan Moore Place – Giza Necropolis, … Continue reading
I’m Watching Star Trek: Voyager, episode: Tuvix… Finished. One word: poignant. Rating: 4 chainsaws and bring a hanky.
Another bucket list wish is to get into boating. This is a common nerdy theme, based on a wish to own a starship, but living in a non-space-dwelling era. Yes, while I can’t be captain of the starship Enterprise or … Continue reading
About 12 months ago I had bloated up to massively obese 40 inch waist-line thanks to illness, twelves hours a day at the computer and junk-food. Since then gym, vegetables and some sport has got me down to 36 inches. … Continue reading
Dad looked over my newspaper tech column yesterday and said in a slightly shaky voice- “You know, they’re going to think you’re a geek!” He had JUST realised his son was a geek. You’d have thought the books, comics, games, … Continue reading
“I’m a Hindu. My religion teaches that if we suffer in this life, we are rewarded in the next. Three months at the North Pole with Sheldon and I’m reborn as a well-hung billionaire with wings!” -Raj, Big Bang Theory, … Continue reading
Dredd, perhaps the most loved (and simultaneously reviled), longest running character in the epic British comic 2000 AD will celebrate 35 years of publication history next month. The one-man judge, jury and executioner of Mega City One, all that remains … Continue reading
This is a repeated posting, because I somehow managed to lose this post with my frequent changes of WordPress blog names, imports and exports and… ok… the truth? I accidentally buggered up WordPress and lost the post. To compensate for … Continue reading
I love Blakes 7. Its that simple. From the moment it first aired in 1978, I did not miss a single episode. When Marvel, UK started publishing the Blakes 7 magazine, I bought every single issue. And when the series … Continue reading
