Countdown to Darkness Review

In our previous entry we reviewed the exclusive variant cover for Countdown to Darkness - The Enterprise Edition.

Star Trek Magazine – DSTL report

We couldn't feel more honoured if we we won a bloodwine drinking competition against a Dahar master, but here we are in The Official Star Trek Magazine.
Along side our mates from Trek Mate, this edition provides an indepth account of Destination Star Trek London and part of that included speaking to the 'official bloggers' - that's us! The article also provides a good look at the 'behind the scenes' of the event. This makes facinating reading whether or not you attended. It was a special privilege to speak to Star Trek Magazine's editor Christopher Cooper, as we have been reading the magazine since its inception. Whilst our class mates at school were reading copies of Sugar and J-17, we were glued to our Star Trek Mag and preferred interviews with … Continue Reading ››

TNG Taste of Blu Ray – Taste Gooood!

Review by Sam I snatched this from the postman as he walked up my driveway this morning. It wasn't my proudest moment, wearing only a dressing gown and having only applied makeup to one eye. Why is it, you then feel the need to tell the postman, what is it they are delivering to you? The next thing I did was take the photo above as I felt a great need to share to this with my Trekkie Friends. Its one of the few times when there is a global release date that we Brits get to watch things before the Americans wake up and fill the boards with spoilers. So Na! (be quiet Auzzies!) Then there was a great dilemma....do I watch Standard Def Encounter at Farpoint first? So I can 'feel the benefit' when I watch it in HD? Nope, couldn't wait. The Menu page is pretty basic It doesn't really need to be anything too fancy. The options include Play … Continue Reading ››

Review by Sam
Carole is a comic reader and I have always felt less of a geek because of it. But its time to change that and I have gone out and bought my first Comic! (by go out - I mean visit the App store and download it!).  Techie stuff:  I went for the iPad download as I don't have a comic book store nearby (for shame) and I prefer magazines etc via digital download, the pictures 'pop' and if you spill your raktajino all over it, well you just make yourself another one and carry on reading. I think there was a lot more they could have done with the media though, I found myself rotating the screen from Landscape to Portrait to make sure I … Continue Reading ››
