Some Star Trek stories to hold you over until the new Discovery season…

Last year, I got hooked on the new CBS All Access iteration of the classic Star Trek series, a show called Star Trek: Discovery.  The program had its quirks – the storty seemed more episodic rather than self-contained, some plotlines required an intense knowledge of Trekkie history, and the show’s characters – while themselves the…

Who’s the right Captain Marvel?

Yes, I know I’m going to step in it right now. I do not care. There are a set of movies debuting next year, both featuring the great superhero Captain Marvel. But one of them wasn’t originally named Captain Marvel. And the other one isn’t allowed to be called Captain Marvel any more. Let me…
