Review by C.J. Bunce The early 2018 release Alien: Covenant is now streaming on Amazon Prime, Vudu, and other streaming services.  It is the second act of a two-part story focusing in major part on the android* named David, the continuation of non-human humanoids we first encountered in the Ridley Scott’s original 1979 film Alien […]

Hey, looks like we made it! Five years ago today, Elizabeth C. Bunce, Art Schmidt, Jason McClain, and I had already spent a few months talking through the technical details for the launch of borg.com.  What should it look like?  What should we write about?  How do we get to there from here?  Then it all […]

I have always been fascinated with the use of the corridor or futuristic hallway in science fiction TV and movies.  It’s a tool that has been used over and over again to show a utilitarian function that we use today as we might see it in the future.  By showing a simple hallway with different colored […]
