The Science Fiction Review

Top 20 Starship Captains

September 17, 2007 by

I ran across an article discussing the top 20 Starship Captains in Science Fiction. This was an interesting article for me because I haven’t seen quite a few of the shows the author was taking the captains from. Of course Star Wars and Start Trek are heavily represented.

In science fiction, the archetypal hero is the starship captain – doughty scientist-explorers setting off across the uncharted reaches of the cosmos in search of new life, new civilizations. You know the drill.

Don’t miss the Family Guy Season 6 Premier

September 13, 2007 by

Titled “Blue Harvest”, this season premier will be a spoof of Star Wars, my favorite movie series. I normally do reviews after the fact, but I wanted to give everyone an heads-up to check it out when it arrives on Sunday Sept 23, at 9/8c. I can’t wait to see it, and will review it in a follow up post. Check out the movie poster.

Essentially it will cover Episode IV: A New Hope. Check out the following 9 scenes out on YouTube as a warm-up. These aren’t all of them though. –update– The video is no longer available, probably thanks to a Fox take down notice.

I’ve finally made time to write out my review for this episode, check it out under my TV section or the direct link here.
