Galaxy Quest's' Tommy Webber (Daryl Mitchell) is annoyed. (The guy on the far right) Well he's good reason to be. Starfleets so called "Battle Strategist" has broken the bloody ship again! (I photo-shopped Captain Kirk's head onto Captain Nesmiths, so Sir Alexander Dane (Alan Rickman) could give him a good telling off. Well someone had to.) 

Its obvious we need a Star Trek Trailer 2 update on this sad situation, so remain calm and try not to get too shook up.....

Its like Admiral Pike said in Star Trek Into Darkness - Mr Kirk is acclimating himself to the role of First Officer. Its a hard fact facing imminent defeat, so trekkies maybe its time to get realistic. Say your prayers, eat your vitamins and all hands abandon ship!

 Star Trek Beyond hits cinemas on July 22nd 2016.

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers and trekkies.

Galaxy Quest - Meme Bloghop

Christine Rains, C. Lee McKenzie and Tara Tyler are hosting a Winter Bloghop which I spotted over at the Its all good fun. The idea is to shake off the seasons blues by posting a fun MEME on whatever cosmically takes your fancy. All you have to do is select a favorite image (You've probably guessed that I love Science Fiction.) Now warp over to, upload - type in your words/quotes and publish!

I found an amusing snap from Galaxy Quest with "Sir Alexander Dane" (Alan Rickman) chatting with co-star Gwen deMarco (Sigourney Weaver) over the phone. (He's alone in his apartment, STILL wearing his latex Alien Scalp on his head.) Gwen is upset because their supreme commander "Captain Jason Nesmith" freaked out bigstyle with a fan.

Laugh Long and Prosper.

My Favorite Martian

You've probably guessed that I love Star Trek aliens in all shapes great and small. So my choice for Geektwin's 'My Favorite Martian' bloghop is Thermian Mathesar!

Every Sci Fi fan who's been curious about the merits of Science Fiction will definitely get a good chuckle out of Galaxy Quest. Tim Allen stars as Captain Jason Nesmith, Commander of the starship NSEA Protector when the unthinkable happens. The plug is pulled on Nesmith's "Galaxy Quest" show tossing our 'defenders of the galaxy' out in the cold. Its funny watching Nesmith grabbing all the media attention while his washed up crew do all the legwork attending sci-fi conventions etc where loyal fans still adore them eighteen years later. Surely he reminds you of someone?

Galaxy Quest is fun to watch and I can think of no better homage to Star Trek's classic series or TNG! The actors fall from stardom have them squabbling over the smallest of stuff and ready to chuck in the towel. The fun starts when Nesmith is approached by a race of aliens proclaiming to be "Thermians" led by their completely clueless chief "Mathesar" which is why hes so totally cool. To cut a long story short these guys have completely confused ideas about Galaxy Quest's TV show."

The thing is see Mathesar's race actually believes in the crew of the NSEA Protector and has built them a REAL STARSHIP that can fly in outerspace!  He calls Galaxy Quest's adventures: The real world "historical documents" giving Nesmiths crew the chance to redeem themselves in the eyes of gullible fans who've been worshipping them for years. Most fans and geeks would probably flip out at the prospect of being aboard a real spaceship surrounded by aliens but not Tech Sgt. Chen played by Tony Shalhoub.

Hi guys. Listen, they're telling me that the generators won't take it, the ship is breaking apart and all that. Just FYI.

The viewscreen goes black. The ship ROARS forward.

ALEXANDER Yells: We've got to stop!

Things only get better when the evil villain SARRIS (whos one mean, ugly, reptile) shows up and to blazes with the rest of the Galaxy. Check out the creepy smiling aliens with those sharp teeth! So who's my favorite martian? Thermian Mathesar! Logic out the airlock, thats my story and I'm sticking to my guns.

Who's your favorite alien?

Does Capt Jason Nesmith remind you of anyone?

By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged!

Never give up, never surrender to the Martians, Trekkers!
