The Prisoner 001 (2018) | View Comic
Yes folks, it's a modern sequel/revival! (Although I think they have the chessboard in the wrong part of the Village, but perhaps they've relandscaped the lawn in the 52 years since we last saw it.) It's being released one episode per month, with #2 already available. Be seeing you.

Blade runner 2049 teaser announcement piece debuts | EW.com
I gots concerns about: a) the prevalence of teal and orange, b) the lack of Vangelis. My default policy, as ever, is cautious optimism. Because that worked out so well for Prometheus.

Star Trek Beyond Trailer #2 (2016) | YouTube
I watched it with the sound off, which is the best way to appreciate Abramsverse Trek, and was satisfied. Then I watched it with the sound on and HOLY SHIT they might actually have made a good Star Trek movie. At the very least, they seem to be developing their own plots. (You just know that Pegg was responsible.) My default policy, as always, is cautious optimism.

Boldly going to television: First teaser for ‘STAR TREK’ series | One. Perfect. Shot.
Can I slingshot around the sun at high warp so this comes faster? No new information, except possibly a tantalizing hint when they say "new crews" plural. What I do know is that it probably isn't STAR TREK: EMPIRE, because I haven't sold it yet.

Short film: Death in Space
Actually, I think you'll find that explosive decompression doesn't... never mind. A series of two-second shorts. Glorious silly fun.

No, that's not it. I accidentally got chilli sauce in my eye again. It happened while you weren't looking.

Alien | Typeset In The Future
A brilliant look at the Semiotic Standard, and an awful lot of Futura.

At no point does he mention the bit where we all live in camps where we're forced to wear a tattoo of his glowering face on top of our own.

The Economics of Star Trek — Editor's Picks — Medium
"A proto-post-scarcity economy". Sounds reasonable to me, but I gots concerns about individual ship owners like Harry Mudd and Kasidy Yates. If they're allowed small interstellar vessels but (presumably) can't own a Galaxy-class starship by themselves, where's the cutoff point?

Possibly the best cosplay ever
Someone walks down the street in an outfit like that, you know she's not afraid of anything.

And What Should I Do In Illyria? | Procrastination Central
Yes it's Blakes 7 slashfic. Come back! It's Blakes 7 slashfic set on the privateer galleon Liberator in the year of our Lord 1569. All Tudor mercantile tradition has been thoroughly researched, and I can testify as to its accuracy. Still not convinced about the bit where [SPOLIERS!] Blake and Avon kiss, though.
