Boxleitner to Heroes?
By Steven L. Taylor

Via the SciFi Wire: Boxleitner Joining Heroes?

Aside from the fact that Boxleitner would generically be a good choice, it adds more geek cred to Heroes as the show where folks from other genre shows come to play. We have already seen two TOS actors (Takei and Nichols) and a Doctor (Eccelston) on the show, not to mention the new Spock (Quinto), so the lead actor from Babylon 5 makes a good addition to the collection.

Am I forgetting any other examples?

Analyzing the Death of Red Shirts
By Steven L. Taylor

As any social scientist knows, it is one thing to think that something is true, yet another to be able to empirically demonstrate it.

To wit we have: Analytics According to Captain Kirk.

Lots of good stuff, including this vital tidbit:

The red-shirt survival rate is slightly higher when Kirk meets women than when a
fight breaks out. This trend necessitates the question: How often did Captain Kirk “meet” women? In 30% of the missions.

There are even some nifty graphs.

New Trek Shuttlecraft
By Steven L. Taylor

io9 has the images that Paramount asked Ain’t it Cool News to take down. They are interesting as I think one can see the classic TOS influence.
