Via the SciFi Wire: Galactica Returns In Fall.

While the 3rd season has been confirmed for some time, this is the first time I have seen a timeframe. According to the brief story we will all have to wait until October for new BSG after this Friday’s season finale.

The third season, like the second, will be 20 episodes in length.

In Memoriam: Andreas Katsulas
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 3:28 pm

If you are a fan of Babylon 5, you will be saddened to hear of the death of Andreas Katsulas, at the very young age of 59. He died of lung cancer.

Katsulas played G’Kar on the series, and gave, especially in the later seasons, excellent performances in the role. G’Kar seemed liked a gardern variety heavy in the first season, but turned out to be quite the complex character, something Katsulas did an excellent job of presenting.

Katsulas also portrayed the recurring character of the Romulan Commander Tomalak on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Katsulas is the second of the B5 regular cast to die at a young age. Richard Biggs, who played Dr. Stephen Franklin, died in 2004 at the age of 44.

Super Bowl Commercials 2006
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:10 am

Forget the iFilms link I posted last night. Should you feel the need for Super Bowl commercials, go here.

However, I must confess, aw quick perusal of the list does not bring to mind anything from last night that was all that fantastic.

I stick with the Nimoy/Aleve commercial, because do so recognizing my Trek bias.

To Boldly Buy What No Man Has Bought Before!
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 6:23 am

Via the BBC: Actor Shatner sells kidney stone

Star Trek actor William Shatner has sold his kidney stone for $25,000 (£14,000) to an online casino, to raise money for a housing charity.

The 74-year-old actor agreed on Monday to sell the stone to GoldenPalace.com.

“This takes organ donors to a new height, to a new low, maybe. How much is a piece of me worth?” said Shatner.

I was going to say “I think I’ll pass” but that would be too much of an unintended pun.

The money is going to Habitat for Humanity, so more power to them. However, I must confess to some trepidation over anyone who would want to buy the darn thing.

Kewl: New Who to SciFi
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 10:22 am

Via the SciFi Wire: SCI FI To Air New Doctor Who

SCI FI Channel announced Jan. 12 that it will air the first season of the BBC’s hit SF series Doctor Who, starting in March. The 13 episodes, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, will air as part of SCI FI Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The series, from head writer and executive producer Russell T. Davies, ran originally in the United Kingdom last year and was one of the network’s biggest hits ever. An update of the classic Doctor Who show, the series continues in the U.K. with an upcoming second season that will star David Tennant as the Doctor.

Nifty.

The entire principal cast of “Battlestar Galactica,” including Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, is set to return for season three. Executive producers David Eick and Ronald D. Moore, who developed the show from the late-1970s ABC series, will also remain with the show.

Excellent.

Braga Done with Trek
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 11:38 am

Via Trek Today: Braga Says He’s Done With Star Trek

Brannon Braga has announced that his relationship with the Star Trek franchise is at an end, adding, “There will be a lot of fans cheering about that.”

Not as many as would be cheering if Berman called it quits, but yes, I suspect there are.

A Feast for Crows
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 2:01 pm

For those who care, George R. R. Martin’s A Feast for Crows goes on sale today.

The Song of Fire and Ice series is perhaps the best fantasy series I have ever read, and hence am pleased that the current volume is finally completed. I am even tempted to go out and buy it, even though I have plenty of reading material on hand.

Of course, if Bantam wants to send me a review copy…

I will say that the online excerpt isn’t really awe-inspiring. If you haven’t read A Game of Thrones and you like fantasy, you must go get it now.

I also noticed that the new Wheel of Time book is in stores as well.

Takei Out of the Closet
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 6:33 am

Via AP: George Takei Discloses His Homosexuality

George Takei, who as helmsman Sulu steered the Starship Enterprise through three television seasons and six movies, has come out as a homosexual in the current issue of Frontiers, a biweekly Los Angeles magazine covering the gay and lesbian community.

[…]

The 68-year-old actor said he and his partner, Brad Altman, have been together for 18 years.

Takei, a Japanese-American who lived in a U.S. internment camp from age 4 to 8, said he grew up feeling ashamed of his ethnicity and sexuality. He likened prejudice against gays to racial segregation.

It is interesting to note that such a revelation is hardly a big deal these days, but clearly would have damaged, if not wrecked, Takei’s career early on.

I think James Joyner’s comment earlier in the week about another celebrity “outing” is indicative of the general reaction to these types of announcements:

Frankly, I’m more shocked that the WNBA is still around than I am that Swopes is a lesbian.

Indeed.

Now, I will grant, there will be individuals who react quite negatively, but certainly in terms of the general reaction to the entertainment industry, Takei’s public statements about his sexual orientation will not raise many eyebrows. For that matter I have seen rumors to the effect that he was gay for some time-and, as Joyner notes in a post on Takei

Clearly, given that he has been with Altman for longer than most married couples, his orientation has been an open secret among those who knew him for quite some time.

Now, of course, there are areas, such as male sports, where such outings would generate profound reactions.
