Thank You Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D!

With all this downtime my mental health has been getting worse. It was very bad pre-pandemic! I've tried lots of different things but one thing that does help is re-watching some of my favourite shows. I've found some almost impossible to watch at the moment. I don't know why but those that I have watched.... Continue Reading →

Post 300! New Trek pins from Fansets!

My latest delivery from Fansets arrived today. This particular order contained a couple of micro-crew pins, a Star Trek: Picard Fenris Rangers Calling Card pin and 3 pins from what is known as the 'Micro-Fleet' collection.

Space: Above and Beyond

Lockdown 2020: Like many people I've spent a bit of time binge watching TV shows. Unlike some, I'm watching shows from the past that I enjoy. Much of modern TV doesn't appeal to me. I've just finished a complete re-watch of Space: Above and Beyond created by Glen Morgan and James Wong (both of X-Files... Continue Reading →

Strange New Worlds Part 2

Since yesterday's announcement of another new live-action Star Trek series I've been doing lots of thinking about the possible potential of the new show. From what we already know its set 10 years prior to Kirk taking command of the Enterprise. I'm assuming for now that it's set in the period after the events of... Continue Reading →
