  1. That’s Jonathan Frakes. Star Trek’s Commander William Riker.
He apparently worked for Marvel in the 1970s as Captain America.
I’m gonna need a minute.
Added: Frakes also provided the voice of adult Finn in two episodes of Adventure Time. Buh.

    Mostly spurred by Random Trek, I’ve been re-watching Star Trek: The Next Generation (god help me) and this is it: the first episode I remember really enjoying.

    The plot is slightly recycled from the original series episode, The Doomsday Machine, but it’s handled differently enough to be interesting and features that guy from Buckaroo Banzai as the holographic weapons salesman. I like Geordi being left in charge even if the setup is contrived. It also means that Picard is on the planet for once, where he should be. Don’t give us your regulations crap, Riker, we want the captain in the action. The role reversal with Dr. Crusher is good and I found the resolution clever.

    Wesley is not in this episode which is, of course, a blessing. I’m finding that while, yes, he himself is annoying, what’s more annoying is how the adults treat him. The episode with Lore is ridiculous. Everyone suspects Lore is no good and yet when Wesley suggests he’s switch places with Data they’re all “Shut up, Wesley! Go to your room, Wesley!” Literally. He makes us hate the main characters for being overbearing asses. Which is not a good move half way into season one.

    Season one is rough. There’s no denying it. But we stuck it out because we believed. We believed that after all of Star Trek’s troubles, it could have a decent television run. We wouldn’t have to be stuck with the wasteland that was sci fi television programming from 1970-1987. Episodes like this one rewarded our belief, even if the show wouldn’t find its legs until season three.

  4. ☛ 26: Not-Yet-Born Kirk Cameron

    turningthiscararound:

    To get things rolling, Lex talks about his lunch from GrubHub and then we all agree that our fathers were Nordicktrack users.

    Jon denies the rumors that his daughter is in a doom metal band. No, in fact she’s into Taylor Swift. None of our kids have Bieber fever. Thank god.

  5. “Who are the Kids Creole of our time?!” the old man angrily challenged the crowd. “Who is writing the ‘Endicotts’?!”

  6. Dang.

    Dang.

I really like this drab aesthetic better than the red railings they used in the rest of the series. I don’t think there were any red shirts in the first pilot, either.

  10. (via Marvel is replacing Steve Rogers with the new, black Captain America | The Verge)

The only thing I see that tempers the excitement about this and Thor being a woman is that these both seem like temporary things. Unlike Spider-Man dying in the Ultimate Universe and being replaced by Miles Morales, Steve Rogers and male Thor aren’t dying, leading me to believe that inevitably the blonde white dudes will be back in their original roles. Rhodey was Iron Man for a while, but that didn’t last. Storm and the Black Panther were members of the Fantastic 4 for a while and that didn’t last, either. Universe 616 just isn’t designed for commitment, apparently.
