Welcome to the Human Race, Anne Droid 

  By G.P. Avants Welcome back on board the Raza and the world of Dark Matter. The soften-spoken android, the heart and soul of that vessel, has been upgraded. Her time among humans has changed her status. I think her name Ann Droid is a more fitting title than just a piece of soul less…

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

By G.P. Avants   I think the old adage, “The third time is the charm”, is true when it comes to the newest incarnation of Irwin Allen’s Lost in Space. Netflix brings us yet another reboot or better yet, reimagined series to propel own personal space voyage. (My only complaint is not having enough time…

Do Our Lives Matter? 

  By G. P. Avants   My brother Ron steered me into a whole new Sci-Fi universe when he told me about the show Dark Matter. Ron said I would find the stories interesting and the characters very relatable He wasn’t wrong. Right from the start I found this show unique in its own way, yet…

Nobodies Make the Best Somebodies 

By G.P. Avants   The movie, The Last Jedi shook up some long standing traditions when it came to Star Wars fan expectations.

The Menagerie of Captain Lorca

  By G.P. Avants     Star Trek Discovery is not your parents Star Trek series. Maybe it’s the fact that this pre-dates Captain Kirk and crew, that there is a dark and dangerous tone to the show.
