TrekCulture ranks the "hero ships" of Trek.


After all these years I'm glad the E-D still gets respect (even if I would place the E-A above it in terms of aethetics), but after thirty-odd years can we finally admit that the saucer was too big and the nacelles were too small?

Ben 10 was a little after my time, but I know the basics. So when I stumble across a clip that has a subtle Trek reference, I'm surprised. See if you can find it.

Someone took the first generation of Pokemon games and turned them into an animated movie that uses no dialogue. Sound effects and music straight from the games, and character interactions you never saw even in the anime. Plus lots of Pokeshipping if you lean that way. Rarely do I get to say "this made me feel like a kid again", but this really did. Even though I was in my late teens when Pokemon hit the scene, I still feel a connection with the first few generations.

A guy solves a single-color jigsaw puzzle by taking pictures of each piece and programming a computer to solve it for him. And then programming a robot to put each piece into place.



The best part was putting the pieces into a tumbler to soften the rough edges, then getting surprised that the pieces also shrunk a bit in the process.



You know, twenty years ago I would've called this guy the craziest person on the Internet. But now he ain't even top ten. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

This year is the 30th anniversary of The Muppet Christmas Carol, and Entertainment Weekly had an interview with some of the Muppets.


Kermit's voice is absolutely AWFUL. You'd think by now getting appropriate voice actors for legacy characters would be something that can't be screwed up, but I guess not. Even the current voice of Baby Kermit on the Muppet Babies reboot does a better job.

Certifiably Ingame tackles ships with nacelle numbers other than two.


I'm not a fan of the single-nacelle kitbashes.



CI's idea that four nacelle ships could have larger ranges because they could have "main" and "supplementary" nacelle pairs that swap at intervals is interesting, but I'm not a fan. The warp field would become extremely lopsided. Such a premise would work better if the four nacelles were along the same plane with "outer" and "inner" pairs that swap as needed.

Three seconds from every TNG episode


When you take three second snippets out of context, TNG looks a little weird. What a surprise!

Miracle on 34th Street is now on YouTube!


34th Street is one of my essential Christmas movies, up there with White Christmas and various Christmas Carols.

Food Theory tackles all the stuff Santa eats and drinks on his Christmas ride.


I'm all for exaggeration for comic effect, but this one is just silly. Obviously Santa converts the calories into magic power to:
* Maintain the time dilation field that allows him to visit all the houses in one night

* Powering the spatial fold inside the bag of presents
* Levitating the sleigh
* Imbuing the reindeer with the power of flight
* Reinforcing everything with a structural integrity field
* Teleporting into houses without adequately-sized chimneys
* And so forth



In fact, you could argue that Santa would burn himself out without all those cookies.



Merry Christmas

After twenty-five years, the Pokemon anime won't focus on Ash anymore.


It took long enough. Will he retire as world champion at age 10?


I may have mentioned that I jumped ship before the voice cast change back in 2006. The original Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon dub appalled me. The first few generations of the show still hold meaning for me.



Here's a link to the Pokemon Christmas Bash album on YouTube.

I have fond memories of the BRIO wooden train sets. Well, someone made a Maker program to make virtual train sets in virtual rooms.

Christmas Eve on Sesame Street


I discovered that Bob McGrath died this year. Ouch. I know that 90 years old is nothing to sneeze at, but it's still a bummer. One more piece of my childhood gone forever.



Bob playlist!


Of course we must start with Keep Christmas With You

People in Your Neighborhood (Grocer/Doctor) After hearing the Fireman/Postman version on CD for decades, it's nice to have a change.

A more jazzy version of the Sesame Street theme.
What's the Name of That Song?

Time for another Star Trek Deviantart Christmas Special!


Q plays Santa
Santa Kirk and Elf Spock
I know I've posted this one before, but seeing Trek characters in Peanuts style doing those ridiculous dances never gets old
Santa Worf
A manga-style TOS trinity celebrates Christmas. And per usual the older Bones is deaged for manga purposes.
A chibi-style TNG crew. It's not every day that you see Picard in a reindeer costume!
Sometimes the simple things are the best. A tribble in a Santa hat.
A married Chakotay and pregnant Janeway celebrate the holiday
An unusual Voyager Christmas gathering. Naomi is extremely off-model, but it's not every day that Tal Celes makes an appearance in fanart.
It would've never occurred to me to make a Christmas tree shape by stacking three Cochrane deltas, much less have the star be a Command star symbol
Seeing Scotty dressed like Santa was inevitable, but I wish the suit could've resembled the Monster Maroon a bit more.
Kirk and Rand under the mistletoe. Does Kirk look like James Bond Jr. to anyone else?
Santa replaces his reindeer with nacelles for sleigh runners
Kes makes for a very cute elf, but a problem with drawing her in chibi manga style is that if you're not very careful it'll look like Yar.

Santa looks comfortable in the captain's chair

Today SF Debris's final Voyager review was posted. Wow. I know he still has plenty of Trek left, but still...


He's dissected Voyager for almost fifteen years. He's been through server changes and the death of Blip, the implosion of TGWTG, multiple fights with YouTube's copyright lawyers, and a lot more. He's had to remake every episode at least twice and yet he continues.


He also posted a summary episode taking us back to how he got started reviewing Voyager.

DOS emulators for iPhone aren't new, but what if you wanted to install Windows 3.1 on one with a USB floppy drive?


It's more complicated than you'd think.

A most unusual commercial for TOS


You gotta see this one to believe it.

Well, this is something I wasn't expecting to see today.


Webster was once zapped onto the Enterprise-D by a video game where he met Worf!


I don't recall watching much Webster back in the day. I'm not sure why. Maybe I had already been burned out on heartwarming orphans. There were a lot of shows with heartwarming orphans back then.

Certifiably Ingame gives a breakdown of the Battle of Wolf 359


I'm disappointed that there wasn't a mention of the "destruction" of the U.S.S. Righteous (Star Trek: Borg).
