Androids, Synthetics & Mechanical Companions: 20 of Our Favorite Robots in Geekdom

Over the last century, humans seem to have developed an innate fascination with robots. Emily sure has enough of a fascination with them to sport a robot notebook and little robot desk friends and we most definitely have a portrait of Data hanging in our foyer. Maybe we’re so fascinated by them become, as geeks, we’ve...

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Gif Edition — REVIEW

We saw a midnight showing of  Star Trek Into Darkness on Wednesday/Thursday and IT WAS AWESOME. We honestly do not have too many bad things to say about it, except for the goddamn lens flares all over the damn place. But instead of writing a lengthy review about it, we decided to express some of...

Happy First Contact Day!

Happy First Contact Day!

On this day in 2063, humans will make First Contact with an alien species. At least, according to the Star Trek Universe. Fifty years from now Doctor Zefram Cochrane launches Humanity’s first warp-capable ship and makes first contact with the Vulcans (with the help of the crew of the Enterprise, by some accounts).

Most people know him as Sherlock Holmes on the BBC’s Sherlock, so a villainous turn might...
