Jean-Luc Picard Is Back, But Is the Star Trek He Left Behind?

Jean-Luc Picard Is Back, But Is the Star Trek He Left Behind?

He’s a little older. He’s not on a starship. He’s haunted by tragedies of years past. He’s drinking a

lot more wine these days. But it would be fair to say that, deep down, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is not a man truly changed when we meet him again in the premiere of Star Trek: Picard. That’s not the question we should be asking, anyway: Is it the Federation that’s changed instead?

That is the...

The Most Important Thing The Rise of Skywalker Reinforces From The Last Jedi

The Most Important Thing The Rise of Skywalker Reinforces From The Last Jedi

On the surface, it’s easy to see

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as a rejection of the more subversive elements of The Last Jedi—it re-litigates the origins of our heroes, dredging up a past its predecessor was more than happy to move on from. It could, if you wanted to get a little bit conspiracy-brained, read as corporate skulduggery . But where it counts, Rise backs up one of The Last...

You Won't Find Harry Potter on HBO Max, Thanks to Streaming's Weird New Normal

You Won't Find Harry Potter on HBO Max, Thanks to Streaming's Weird New Normal

You might assume that Warner Bros.’

big new streaming service would have one of the studio’s biggest movie franchises available when it launches, but it won’t. And the reason is...well, actually kind of depressing for anyone who isn’t Warner Bros., really.

The news was confirmed recently during the Television Critics Association winter press tour (as reported by Vanity Fair). Michael Quigley,...

This Star Trek Online Ship Is Slowly Breaking My Brain

set in a future where, after a brief resurgence in conflict, the Federation and the Klingon Empire are once again in the path to peace. Co-operation doesn’t just come in accords and trade deals though, it also comes in ship design: like creating this Frankensteining of the best the Klingon Defense Force and Starfleet has to offer.

Doctor Who's Latest Champions Invention With a Collection of Old Ideas

Doctor Who's Latest Champions Invention With a Collection of Old Ideas

Four episodes in, and so far this

season of Doctor Who feels like a major pitch back to its past. Old faces , more monsters, stark messages. It’s all good and proper Doctor Who. But a commitment to bringing back the vibe of Doctor Who also brings with it a familiar problem: episodes that feel like something you’ve seen a million times before.

“Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror,” right down the...

Yes, Picard is just a week away from hitting CBS All Access, and after

trailers and teasers , we’ve got our first look at an extended clip from the show, courtesy of TV Insider. Don’t expect too much, but perhaps that’s sort of the point: this clip, and Picard itself, aren’t all mysterious Borg ships and exploding Romulans. Sometimes all it is is a quiet...

Happy 25th Birthday, Voyager, the Star Trek of My Heart

Happy 25th Birthday, Voyager, the Star Trek of My Heart

As a three-year-old—and also a Brit—I was not particularly paying attention when, 25 years ago today, Star Trek: Voyager began its sojourn out of the Delta Quadrant on UPN. My path to discovering it, and

Star Trek at large, was appropriately a bit more circuitous.

I can’t remember when exactly I first saw Voyager, but I can remember the moment—it was a Saturday afternoon watching TV, flicking...

The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian's Fascinating Approaches to Star Wars Fan Service

The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian's Fascinating Approaches to Star Wars Fan Service

For better or worse , it is not unfair to describe either of Star Wars’ most recent major projects—at the box office, the climax of the saga, The Rise of Skywalker ; and on streaming, the culmination of years of attempts to bring live-action Star Wars to the small screen, The Mandalorian —as stories that deeply engage in fan service. But what differentiates their use of it makes for some...

Crisis on Infinite Earths Was Already Wrapped Before Its Biggest Surprise Happened

Crisis on Infinite Earths Was Already Wrapped Before Its Biggest Surprise Happened

The CW’s DC crossovers are always filled with fun, and often

incredibly absurd surprises . They are, after all, about a smorgasbord of attractive actors in various heaps of pleather punching extradimensional beings, aliens, nazis, and sometimes even extradimensional alien nazis. But Crisis on Infinite Earths perhaps had the wildest yet —and it nearly didn’t happen.

Although the final two...
