Hello to Jason Isaacs in the latest Star Trek: Discovery episode, which is proving much more character-centric than previous series...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Context Is For Kings

So, following the traumatic backstory two-parter that opened this season, we finally got to meet the Discovery in this episode. And unlike the various Enterprises (or Voyager), which are warm, homely places, the Discovery is more like one of those weird, creepy ships that the Enterprise (or Voyager) encounters and has to solve the mystery of what killed everyone before it kills them too. Indeed, that's sort of what happened to Discovery's sister ship, the USS Glenn.

Indeed, it's interesting to get a look at the ship from

Star Trek: looking back at the BBC's ban and censorship

Alastair Stewart Dec 6, 2016

With a new Star Trek TV series incoming, we revisit the show's long history of censorship at the BBC...

Star Trek is not a franchise you’d normally associate with controversy. Nevertheless, between 1969 and 1994, four episodes of the original series - Empath, Whom Gods Destroy, Plato’s Stepchildren and Miri - were not aired on the BBC, and other episodes were heavily redacted.

It’s difficult nowadays to appreciate just how sacrosanct terrestrial television was until the 1990s. Even though Star Trek was first broadcast in the UK on BBC One on July 12 1969, with the episode Where No Man Has Gone Before, repeats were rare and VHS tapes were expensive, and difficult to get

As a new Star Trek TV show is planned for 2017, we select the show's top 25 episodes from its classic Original and Animated series...

The impact of Star Trek, a television series that altered the world's expectations and put an indelible mark on many cultures around the world, is often underestimated until you realise who it had an impact on and what they went on to achieve.

If you only ever watch 25 episodes or, rather, stories from the original(ish) run of Star Trek, these are they, at least in my opinion. The only rules in place being that this selection is drawn only from the series that just called themselves Star Trek (so that's what we now call Star Trek: The Original Series, or Tos and Star Trek: The Animated Series, or Tas), and two-part episodes count as one story... The more Trek-astute of you may realise

Maverick, The Rockford Files: James Garner Dies at 86

Television legend James Garner has died at the age of 86. He reportedly passed away late last night.

Garner began his career with a non-speaking role in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial on Broadway after helping actor Lloyd Nolan learn his lines. He then landed a regular role in the touring production.

From there, he moved on to small roles in movies and television. While he found success starring in more than 50 films over the course of his career -- including The Thrill of It All, The Americanization of Emily, Victor/Victoria, Murphy's Romance, Support Your Local Sheriff!, and The Notebook -- Garner really made his mark on the small screen.

He starred in a comedic Western, Maverick, in 1957 on ABC. Garner's Bret Maverick character sought out high-stakes poker games and rarely stayed in one place for very long. Unlike

Movie News: Film, TV Icon James Garner Dies at 86

Los Angeles – He was the guy that could take care of things for you, with a wink of the eye and a slightly cynical air. Handsome star James Garner distinguished himself in both film and television, and passed away on July 19th, 2014, in Los Angeles after a long stretch of health problems. He was 86.

Actor James Garner Dead at 86

Oscar-nominated actor James Garner has passed away at the age of 86.

From AP:

Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday.

Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. Pdt and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press.

There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

Although he was adept at drama and action, Garner was best known for his low-key, wisecracking style, especially with his hit TV series, “Maverick” and “The Rockford Files.

James Garner of ‘Maverick,’ ‘Rockford Files’ Dies at 86

James Garner of ‘Maverick,’ ‘Rockford Files’ Dies at 86
Amiable actor James Garner, whose moderately successful film career was eclipsed by two extraordinarily popular television series, “Maverick” and “The Rockford Files,” has died, according to reports. He was 86.

Like many popular leading men of Hollywood’s heyday, Garner boasted all-American good looks and a winning personality that carried him through comedy and drama alike. He was one of the first of TV’s leading men to cross over into films in the ’60s with such popular movies as “The Thrill of It All” and “The Americanization of Emily.” But he had his greatest impact in television, first on “Maverick” in the ’50s and then in the ’70s on “The Rockford Files,” for which he won an Emmy in 1977. He later appeared in several quality telepics including “Promise,” “My Name Is Bill W.” and “Barbarians at the Gate,” as well as the occasional strong feature such as “Victor/Victoria” and “Murphy’s Romance,

Review: Stargate Universe - Justice
(S01E10) "You put ordinary people under enough stress, I think you'll find they're capable of anything. - Dr. Rush

While watching this episode of Stargate Universe, I kept thinking of the "Court Martial" episode of the original Star Trek series. Captain Kirk is tried for the wrongful death of a crewmate, but Spock discovers via a 3D chess game that the computer's system has been tampered with and presents the evidence at the trial. Yes, I'm that geeky.

Ok, so that's about all these episodes have in common, and there's only so much you can do with the "trial in space" story. It boils down to the characters, and in this instance, the battle lines were drawn even further in this compelling little murder mystery.
