Since the series is going to air on Space Channel here in Canada - thank the Great Bird, the Prophets, the Grand Material Continuum, Surak and Kahless for that! - I do plan to watch the series. I do not like this "streaming-subscription" business model.

Noting the first four episode titles per trekmovie.com:
  • The Vulcan Hello
  • Battle at the Binary Stars
  • Context is for Kings
  • The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry


Some attention-getters as episode titles go, yes?

I rewatched Atomic Blonde on Friday night. It made a bit more sense on the second viewing, which was good. It's not only a whodunnit, but a how- and why- as well as being a period spy/action drama. Not sure that we need a sequel to it, but that's an argument we can have in the comments.

RIP Len Wein 1948-2017

I've just seen word on Facebook from Elliot S! Maggin and Paul Kupperberg. We've lost Len Wein today.

Details as we're able to get them...

My eyes still have me...

Had an exam at the Eye Institute on Friday. The specialist handling my file pronounced my situation "rock stable" and recommended that we do this again in about six months. I am more than happy to go along with this suggestion.
