In The News:
- Star Trek is still very much alive in the minds of fans and another audio fan production proves it. This week we take a look at “Star Trek: The Continuing Mission.”
- Genetic engineering has been a hot-button topic for sci-fi writers since Mary Shelly. Now real science takes one step closer with the recent HFEA recommendation to approve hybrid human-to-animal genome research.
- Indy 4 has its official title and we give it to you on today’s show.
- We dish out loads of “Transformers” DVD release news. You are going to love this segment.

TV Talk: This whole segment is dedicated to the launching of the “SaveDresdenFiles” campaign. Hope you have those drum sticks (not the Colonel Sanders kind) ready to send to SCI FI.
Interview: This week we talk to Janine Vangool, curator, designer and connoisseur of fine art who hosted and organized “The Shatner Show” for her Uppercase Gallery in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Janine talks about the show that ran for two months, what is was like to work with the over 70 different artists for the project and the new “The Shatner Show” art book now available for purchase.
She not only help to organize the highly praised, very unique and sometime bizarre artistic display showcasing the professional life of William Shatner, but she also helped put together a fantastic book with every artist’s rendition of Bill between its covers. The LIVE event called “The Shatner Show,” which was held in her gallery in Canada through the months of June through August this year, was a big success and hopes are that the book The Shatner Show highlighting the creative paintings, photographs and sculptors will also be as promising.
- Lawrence Bender, the man behind some of Quentin Tarantino’s greatest films is producing a new horror/thriller called “Outside” and is working again with Quentin on a war film called “Inglorious Bastards.”
- Nelson McCormick, the director behind the April 2008 remake of “Prom Night” is at it again and will redo the serial killer/horror film “The Stepfather.”
