The Best Trilogy
Posted By:

On October 13, Disney Plus Latin America tweeted a joke at the expense of Disney Star Wars trilogy:

La última trilogía de Star Wars es la mejor

Followed by two lines of red flags - a lightsaber reference and red flags also indicating contentious sentiment.

Steam Bans NFTs & Cryptos
Posted By:

Title sums up the story succinctly.

That said, most people are probably aware of cryptocurrencies but possibly not NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

They're a cousin of cryptocurrencies but instead of being a unit of currency, each represents an individual asset - which may be real or digital.

The Invincible Teaser
Posted By:

Announced last year by fledgling Polish development studio Starward Industries, PC game The Invincible now has its first teaser trailer. 

For starters, that's a great name for a gaming development studio (headed by a Witcher 3 dev).

It's like "we're sci-fi or bust". Love that level of commitment.

... other people have gone before. But older and fatter.

Those were essentially George Takei's sentiments when asked what he thought about William Shatner's recent spaceflight:

Orville S4 Officially TBD
Posted By:

Tom Constantino - Co-Producer on season 3 of The Orville - recently offered us a curious nugget via Twitter:

Hey folks, been editing today…. BUT despite some misinformation to the contrary, #TheOrville #S4 is still TBD. It will depend on audience appetite and the #S3 response, so anything can happen!

Misinformation?

Originally due to begin commercial flights this month, Virgin Galactic announced these would be delayed until Q4 2022.

Stock prices fell. Predictably.

Doctor Who S13 Wrap
Posted By:

Doctor Who have announced that Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill have finished filming.

The announcement isn't clear if everyone else has or not but either way, end of filming for any incarnation of the Doctor is a momentous occasion.

Jodie did a great job as our first female Doctor Who.

Mandip is also great but no announcement has been made about her leaving so we'll probably see her again in season 14. But that hasn't been confirmed.

Space is Death
Posted By:

It's less upbeat than one might have expected from our first Starfleet captain in space and not as inspirational as the Star Trek title sequence, but Shatner was clearly affected by the experience. He had more to say:

Suddenly you're through the blue and you're into black and you're into, you know, it's raaaa, it's mysterious and the galaxies and things, but what you see is black. And what you see down there is light. And that's the difference.

Enjoy the Ride
Posted By:

That is William Shatner's advice, given this morning in a short video released via twitter.

And it looks like there's a great deal of curiosity about this fictional character, Captain Kirk, going into space, so let's go along with it and enjoy the ride.

It's not a very exciting video really but if you've been following this story you might want to take a look.
