Star Trek Beyond's Jaylah (Sofia Boutella) is sitting pretty in the captain's chair. I've added Spock, Kirk and Dr McCoy's  thoughts on alien life form stand operating procedures - for some fun. Transwarp theories and equations aside our Enterprise pals do seem a wee bit mesmerized in this photoshop. Perhaps Jaylahs ample warp nacelles need adjustment, lol


 The guy here in RED, Scotty sets the ball rolling with "AWW shes a beauty!" So without further a do "Two to beam over, Scotty!" the word is now given by Captain James T Kirk commander of the USS Enterprise NCC1701.


Who stands the best chance of speaking to Jaylah first?
Which one of the Enterprise crew said : "I only use it for medicinal purposes!"

Live Long and Prosper, trekkies and trekkers.

Utopia Planitia loosely translated means the plain of paradise. In 1976 NASA's space probe Viking 2 scored a touchdown on planet Mars on September 3rd. Think back and let's imagine our happy world in 1976. Faster than the speed of sound, Concorde made its first flight across the Atlantic Ocean in under three amazing hours.


 Conversely Star Trek's USS Concord NCC-68711 starship (TNG "All Good Things") takes seconds to cover that distance. The Apple Computer company was formed on February 4th, 1976. Earth's first spaceflight in the search for extraterrestrial life results in exploring MARS!!!

 In 1996 scientists discover microscopic evidence of ancient life on MARS!!!

The lander successfully sets down 54.6 million kilometers away in '76 and takes images for Earth's happy ball of beings. Unfortunately no Martians to high five us back but to quote Counsellor Troi in TNG, "I sense the holding back."

 A recent NASA discovery in 2016 revealed a large amount of underground ice in the Utopia Planitia region of Mars. So we now know it's possible to sustain humanoid life on MARS!!! Its only logical to surmise Martians are hiding somewhere on the Red planet."


If only the inhabitants weren't so shy of Earthers somebody was just saying the other day.  In Star Trek's 51 year history, Utopia Planitia can be overlooked from the Martian hills walking along the surface. Starfleet's spaceship Yards orbiting the planet also gives a clear view of the largest impact basin 16,625 kilometers above the Utopia Planitia region on Mars! So where are the Martians hiding?


These starships: USS Fredrickson (NCC-42111) USS Galaxy (NCC-70637) USS Yamato (NCC-71807) USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) USS Odyssey (NCC-71832) USS Equinox (NCC-72381) USS Defiant (NX-74205) USS Voyager (NCC-74656) USS Sao Paulo (NCC-75633) were developed, refit and or built at Star Trek's Federation Utopia Planitia Fleetyards orbiting Mars.

Earth Scientists at NASA first discovered Utopia Planitia on Mars.


Science Fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson author of Red Mars explores the future colonization and world building of "Utopia Planitia" on the Sci Fi world. (Research took 17 years)

QUESTION Which Sci Fi creator/writer began using "Utopia Planitia" in his Science Fiction work first?

1. Star Trek's - Gene Roddenberry 

2. Red Mars - Kim Stanley Robinson

You decide. Guess long and prosper!

SciFiVisions Parody


 A trekker I know withdrew from the original RPG Sci-Fi visions site a while ago, but at least the name lives on!. Heres what went down. Engineer Ernie was tranquilized sky high for observation in Sickbay. At the time the reasons given seemed completely illogical to me but because some other players weren't interested in collaboration.....

  Aboard the starship RPGER Ernie Shields was pumped up with cordrazine like some science project held under restraints in Sickbay.

 .... Believe me the USS Audacious RPG was the 23rd century version of the Titanic waiting to happen - which it did. Nubik (one of the players) vented in one quick post so have fun reading and let me know what you think!

First off, here's the inspirational poster for each sci-fi visions character:

T'Ehklah Ric Bermud Ernie V'ncent Aura Nubik

Now, a mini-post written in the style of each player.

V'ncent: "Kreena, beam us up!" says V'ncent. The planet suddenly explodes, taking the ancient population and its potential storyline for intervening in a civil war with it. The crew had beamed up only seconds earlier, but all other life forms were destroyed. "That was close," V'ncent says. "The planet has been destroyed," says Aura logically.


Ernie: Now wait just a darn minute - the whole planet blew up, just what in tarnation is going on? Does anyone have a clue whats going on?  We've got problems. Hey, let me out of here! help, someone, please. No no..... please not that again.


 Chief Engineer, Bermud: bermud beems down wit hipo cures all the peeple weres ernie?


Ric: Unknown to the rest of the crew, Blackhawk had been a researcher in an advanced science team working on transporter technology.

Ric calmly reconfigured the transporter pattern buffer for maximum compression using an implant in his left big toe, then transported the entire planet into the buffer mere seconds before the planet was destroyed.

 "I'll decompress it close to Terra and we'll just keep the bits we liked," he joked.


V'ncent: A destruction wave from the planet hit Audi broadside. "The ship is breaking up," said V'ncent. "But look, there's another ship nearby. Let's beam aboard." Nubik, feel free to emote something at this point.


Nubik: Nubik scanned the ship, detecting at least one life form on the bridge and a group of them in the cargo bay. "Aura, bring the hypos that the EMH and Diane developed, we haven't all had our anti-virus shots. Perhaps we should send a marine crew aboard to check if it's safe?"



T'Ehklah elbowed Nubik aside and scanned the ship quickly. "Audi, transport me directly to the bridge of that ship."

T'Ehklah knew instinctively that there would be a breathable atmosphere aboard the ship, just as she knew that there would be at most one lifeform on the bridge and some disposable lifeforms elsewhere. The lifeform spun around.

 "You!" it said. "Yes me! Now die!"

She swung her bat'leth in an arc and took the lifeform's two heads off in a single stroke. "The ship is safe to come aboard, I've taken the bridge," she sneered into her combadge, wiping a bead of sweat from her brow. TAG: everyone! That's about it.

Live Long and Prosper.

Star Trek Discovery Images and Trailer

Heres some fascinating new shots from Star Trek Discovery's stellar new Sci Fi series released only last week via Netflix.

USS Shenzhou - Captain and No1

 In the first visual, we see Captain Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou (Michelle Yeoh) and Commander Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) trekking through the desert but what is their mission?

Captain Georgiou

 All we know is the Captain and No1 are passing through "terra incognita" in a region from the pilot episode but the trailer reveals much more.... Meanwhile, in another visual No1 - Commander Burnham is planning on beaming over to a Klingon vessel....

Commander Burnham

 Only recently Star Trek's brand new cast took time out from filming to entertain San Diego comic con fans. A 45-minute trailer included news on the characters and a look at the series with fast paced action packed scenes, star wars phaser effect fighting, "fire first, questions later" show case video feature!

The show's debut in September 24th won't leave you disappointed believe me. Star Trek Discovery is boldly going to hyper drive fans with cosmic explosions, forcefields, smart aliens with analytical prowess determined to fight to the end. Available with Netflix, CBS and others. I guess its decision time.


Enjoy. Live long and Prosper
