For All Mankind S3
Posted By:

Apple have released the season 3 For All Mankind trailer and while we don't watch this show - Ronald D. Moore's penchant for peddling religion is not for us - the parallels between this alternate Earth space race and our own are clear.

This season introduces a third into that race between the US and Russia - a wealthy private citizen - and the goal is now Mars.

Leaving The Empire
Posted By:

Actress Adele Haenal has departed from French sci-fi film L'Empire (The Empire), and the film industry entirely, claiming it to be racist and sexist.

Strange New Directive
Posted By:

While we were relieved that Strange New Worlds' pilot episode felt like a return to real Star Trek, it may have been short-lived.

The second is an improvement in that Uhura gets over her pilot episode fangirl giddiness but unfortunately we see The Prime Directive retconned and also some weak writing.

Diversity Tool
Posted By:

Activision Blizzard have shared details about an internally developed and employed tool to quantify character diversity in their games, for the purpose of improving it.

Which has been met with unfair criticism from people who approve of efforts to improve diversity but raise a range of irrational objections to the method.

Classic Boobs
Posted By:

Several months ago a Kickstarter campaign was conducted to fund a John Carter computer game. Their prospects didn't seem great and it unsurprisingly failed.

You may also recall we gave a boobies warning in relation to an article about a John Carter comic.

Perfect timing to capitalise on Soulslike Elden Ring's stellar launch three months ago.
