  • Star Trek Picard S02: The Woke Shitification of Trek

    Star Trek Picard S02: The Woke Shitification of Trek

    I’m sort of speechless. It’s terrible. It’s so bad. It’s worse than I could ever imagine. How could they turn one of my favorite characters, Jean-Luc Picard, into this BS? Writers who don’t know their source material, like idiots rewriting bullshit. It’s the worst Trek series, and it’s terrible TV.

  • Apple’s Stellar Severance S01 In A Corporate World

    Someone recommended Severance to me. The way I usually gauge new shows is that one recommendation isn’t enough to sway me, but I waited for a couple to make a more significant impact before diving into it. I wasn’t disappointed. There’s a reason why Netflix is freaking out. The way to go is to have […]

  • Destiny 2: Beyond Light Impressions & Grind

    The new Destiny 2 expansion launched on November 10th. It introduced a “new” element called Stasis. It came after an extended season, s12 Arrivals, and after a long content drought. Did it live up to the hype and expectations? Read on to find out more.

  • Destiny 2 S10 Season of the Worthy: Learning How to Snipe (By Going For Revoker)

    This week was Season of the Worthy’s first Iron Banner. It featured the only ritual weapon of the season and some pinnacle bounties all done in the chaos of IB. I spent a lot of time playing, and finishing the quest on all of my 3 characters. I also decided to try to get Revoker […]

  • Destiny 2 Season of Dawn & into Season of the Worthy

    Towards the end of the last season, Season of the Undying, I completely burnt out on D2. It’s not really the game’s fault, but the grind was just too intense and long.

  • Star Trek Picard S01E05-06 Stardust City Rag & The Impossible Box

    Well, now I guess we get to find out how 7 of 9 made her way into the narrative. There’s no denying that she was going to appear, since the Romulans are “excavating” an old Borg Cube. They’re searching for Bruce Maddox, the so-called creator of the new androids.

  • Star Trek: Picard S01E03-04

    I’m not sure exactly why, but I kinda saved ep 3 so that I could watch two episodes at the same time. Was it a shock that Picard is no longer welcome to the top brass of Starfleet? I guess it’s part of the premise of the show.

  • The Expanse S04

    I was pretty happy that Amazon Prime had picked up The Expanse for a 4th season. It’s quite a compelling show, and one of the few science fiction shows still on TV. To be honest, it had been so long since I had watched the show or read the books that I needed a recap […]

  • 2015 in Books

    It was an interesting reading year. I finally managed to read more than 100 books in a year. It was challenging to say the least. However, it kept me focused. From time to time, I didn’t read as much. I kept away from reading multiple books at once. I only did this from time to […]

  • Books of Virga By Karl Schroeder 

    For some reason, Sun of Suns popped up in my reading queue late last year. I wasn’t sure what to expect. While Sun of Suns started quite confusingly (it was hard to pin down the reason why it wasn’t gripping as the rest of the series), it matured quickly into a great book. I managed […]
