I don’t know if it would save anything, but the more I’ve thought about it since I started this the more I’m thinking that a semi-canon inclusion of the events of The Freemaker Adventures might actually benefit the franchise. If I can I may actually write that commentary this week. The problem is we have to switch cable and internet companies again because this one turned out to not be as beneficial as we would have liked right out of the box. I won’t go into it, but we may be headed back to the previous one, hopefully without any further problems. I’m still not getting back my phone number though. This may affect my working but it shouldn’t affect content. With luck I won’t be doing another video on here for a while (unless it’s my own, and that’s not even scripted thanks to the disruptions getting this situation dealt with) unless I have an actually commentary of my own to add to it.
Speaking of my work, The Clutter Reports this week has the other Mutant Beast Wars toy I can find (I still don’t know what happened to my Soundwave and I didn’t want Poison Bite) as I review Razor Claw.
Meanwhile I am hoping to get more content of my own done this week. In addition to another Finally Watched and the next set of chapters for Op-Center and hopefully that Rowan Freemaker article I’m not sure what else I want to do but I need to get on with things. Meanwhile in comics we’ve completed the Doctor Who comics I hadn’t reviewed, not counting larger collections, and I also have novels to do, one original story and some adaptations I want to watch the episodes alongside if possible. However, that’s a long way off. So what’s replacing the TARDIS? Well, remember when I said it was where the Doctor had been before? Who guessed…
That’s right, what better transition than from Doctor Who to Star Trek, since they’ve teamed up before. Also, Gary Seven is so clearly inspired by the Doctor but I’ve already reviewed that miniseries. This was the series I was hoping to do some time ago but my collection was too much of a disaster to find them all. Now that it’s (more) organized I think I can find them all. I have my collection not in publishing order but in as close to a proper timeline as I can. Remember, Stardates are bogus. I know at least one story arc from the second DC run gets a bit disorganized because of it, following the doomed relationship of Jim Kirk and Carol Marcus, but it’s my preferred reading order. If you want them in proper order hunt around Siskoid’s Blog Of Geekery. (Sorry, he doesn’t have a category just for Star Trek comic reviews, but neither do I. It’ll just be in “Yesterday’s” Comic and Television Spotlight.) Don’t worry, it will only have the occasional hiccup if you prefer the when published order instead of the timeline order, which is my preference and I have to still organize the DC and DCAU sections of my longboxes when I’m done reviewing them.
I’ll be starting with one of the series from the run of Marvel’s short-lived “Paramount Comics” imprint with Star Trek: Early Voyages, taking place in the time of Christopher Pike as Captain. I don’t have anything in the “Kelvin” timeline or wherever the heck Discovery is actually taking place, so it will be all classic continuity. Hopefully you’ll find this interesting. That will start on Wednesday barring shenanigans so look forward to that. Meanwhile, same thing for the comics the rest of the week until Transformers Animated completes the weekly runs to Cybertron in a few weeks. Enjoy!
