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 hardware….

When Death Fights for Life! 

By G.P. Avants   The Infinity Wars. There isn’t a breathe wasted. We are thrown right into the action. Isn’t that what the Avengers and the galaxy tried to prepare for?  If you haven’t seen the film yet, then please don’t keep reading. I was the last one of our God Among Geeks bloggers to see…

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.

When Voq is in Style

  By G.P. Avants   In Star Trek Discovery you are always kept guessing what is store for our faithful crew. What I am discovering about this show is that life always throws them a curve and things don’t always end happily ever after. Of course like in life there are ongoing issues that in…

They Hate That Ship! 

  By G. P. Avants   Ever since I was a kid I have had a love affair with space craft. Now, I’m not a mechanic, mind you, but I am an adventurer. The right vessel can warp, time travel, propel, shoot you to light speed wherever adventure calls you. Star Wars has a plethora…

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.

Child in a Mask 

  By G.P. Avants   Emulation. Being a copycat. These are things we have all done. Who wants to stand out when your goal is to fit in? I know personally growing up shy and lacking confidence, I often acted the part so I would not make a fool of myself. Can anyone else relate?…

  By G.P. Avants   From my first impression of Logan I observed a tired and weary world. Things have progressed since the last time we have seen Dr. Xavier, Wolverine and the world where humans and mutants co-habitate. Technology has progressed, but the mutants are all but extinct.
