While watching the original Star Trek Series again I caught something I thought to be interesting. In episode 4: Where No Man Has Gone Before, a crew member infected with godlike power creates a grave for Kirk with a tombstone. The Tombstone reads James R Kirk instead of James T Kirk.

I thought this a cool find until I google it and, as expect, about a million people had already noticed it. Here is an IMDB link with details on it:

The second Logan trailer is here with action, claws, berserker rages, and... well, a weird meta-X-men comic joke:

The second Logan trailer has arrived, and it promises more action than the average person could claw their way out of, with double the clawed mutants.

The Star Trek: Discovery launch has been delayed again, for a few different reasons, though CBS confirmed in a statement that it starts shooting next week. Also, Spock's father Sarek will be a character on the show, and they've just cast the role:

Star Trek: The Next Generation introduces us to a wide array of alien life. Whether it’s returning species like the Vulcans and Klingons or one-time run-ins that either help or hinder Captain Picard and his crew, these life forms are relatively diverse, but also unconvincingly similar.

Obviously, the main reason for all the humanoid life forms is for the sake of plot flow and costume design. The Enterprise and its crew need to be able to communicate easily (with the help of their Universal Translator, which is basically Google Translate on steroids) with other life forms, new or familiar. We also need to be able to identify with these species on some level, and having human-like characteristics helps maintain that empathy.

But if life on Earth is any indication, the odds of running into bipedal organisms with virtually identical organs, speech mechanisms and appearances so similar to ours are exponentially low...

We take a look at why most of Star Trek: The Next Generation's aliens wouldn't work, and what factors would influence what they'd look like.

Matt Nix's X-Men TV series for Fox hasn't received the official greenlight yet (which should happen in the next few weeks, apparently), but one of the producers let slip that it will have Sentinels...

It looks like Matt Nix will be bringing us sentinels as part of the as yet untitled Fox X-Men TV series he's currently cooking up.

2017's only a little more than two weeks old, but we're already getting Good Omens for 2018. That's right, Neil Gaiman's six-part adaptation of Good Omens has been picked up by the BBC and Amazon for release next year, and Gaiman will also be serving as a showrunner for the series:

I was hearing and reading about big conventions like Comic-Con International since I was old enough to remember which of the booths at the local flea market was the one with all the comic books. I was a fairly sheltered kid, though, and being able to attend something like Comic-Con was more or less out of the question, so I didn’t think about it too much.

It wasn’t until this year, when I found out that Worldcon 75 will be held in the city where I live, that I realized…I actually don’t have a clue about what happens at these things. What would Worldcon be like? Would I even want to go? I decided it was time to put on my learning cap, take to Google, and level up my knowledge of science fiction conventions...

There's a wide world of science fiction conventions, so here's a basic primer for what to expect, including some great sci-fi conventions to attend.

In his Foundation series of books, Isaac Asimov foresaw mathematics predicting and shaping the future. 65 years on from the release of Foundation, the social sciences use computers to test increasingly complex models of human behavior.

Is there a chance that Asimov’s Foundation is just around the bend?

In this article, we take a look at if social sciences are getting closer to being able to predict future events, as in Issac Asimov's Foundation Series.
