A joint US/UK space mission investigating Haley’s comet discovers a huge alien spacecraft concealed in the comet’s coma. The crew, not wanting to miss an opportunity which only comes once every 75 years decides to board the alien craft where they discover the desiccated bodies of giant bat like aliens.
Remember the movie Johnny Mnemonic? It was a low budget adaptation of a short story by William Gibson. Even with strong source material, a capable cast, and a decent screenplay this film somehow managed to fail. I guess Hollywood and the general public just didn’t get ‘cyberspace’.
I think I mentioned that I was never a big fan of the previous Stargate television series. But SGU is an entirely different experience and I really enjoy it. It’s no BSG but you take what you can get. So until SGU returns this fall (September 28?) , here is a reminder of where we left off.

What happened to summer movies? I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but they don’t seem to hold the public attention like they did when I was a kid. I know I’ve probably blogged this topic before, but I notice it every summer. I grew up in the late seventies and early eighties; the “summer […]
