Earth: Final Conflict


"E: FC" Homage w/. "OZ"
Early in the 21st century, a race of aliens, the Taelons, arrive on Earth. In exchange for being allowed to take refuge on our planet, the Taelons offer the people of Earth access to their advanced technology. As a result, disease, war and pollution are almost eliminated. Despite all these advances, there are some people who think the Taelons are not as benevolent as they seem. A resistance movement is organized.

Ultimately, it is discovered that the Taelon aliens are not purely evil, nor are they actually trying to "conquer" the world (except Zo'or, the main antagonist in seasons 2-4). They can no longer reproduce: Da'an was the last Taelon to have a child (Zo'or was the last child to be born but Zo'or is barren) and are on the verge of extinction. Their initial goal is to see if they can use humanity to extend their lives. However, they do have a hidden agenda: to bioengineer the human race to help fight their mortal enemy, the Jaridians (who come from Taelon origin). In doing so, they have no problem violating human civil liberties to reach their goals. The Jaridians believe that the Taelons' inability to reproduce is psychological. - IMDB Message Board

BATMAN Forever


Mini homage to "The Bat" and fantasy in general.

In the original version of the story and the vast majority of retellings, Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, an American millionaire (later billionaire) playboy, industrialist, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on crime, an oath tempered with the greater ideal of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat themed costume in order to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional American Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his crime-fighting partner, Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine Batgirl. He fights an assortment of villains such as the Joker, Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, martial arts skills, an indomitable will, fear, and intimidation in his continuous war on crime.

Doctor Who & Other Sci-fi Comments


The 11 Doctors




Davros

















 Transferred posts from other sites will be framed w/ "***"



Doctor Who is a British science fiction program produced by the BBC. The program depicts the adventures of a time traveling humanoid alien known as The Doctor who explores the universe in a sentient time machine called the TARDIS whose exterior appears to be a blue police box. Along with a succession of companions, he faces a variety of foes while working to save civilizations, help people, and right wrongs.

As a Time Lord, The Doctor has the ability to regenerate his body when near death. Introduced into the storyline as a way of continuing the series when the writers were faced with the departure of lead actor William Hartnell in 1966, it has continued to be a major element of the series, allowing for the recasting of the lead actor when the need arises.

To date, the Doctor has fully gone through this process and its resulting after-effects on twelve occasions, with each of his incarnations having their own quirks and abilities, but otherwise sharing the consciousness, memories, experience and basic personality of the previous incarnations. We find out recently that there was a "War Doctor" which wasn't counted until now.

You get a good sense of the show with the Doctor. He has many companions (K-9, Leela, Sarah Jane, Romana, Amy, & Martha) and many enemies (The Daleks, Davros, Cybermen, The Master, Autons, Omega, The Silurians).

Blake's 7 - w/ more Dr Who comments



Avon, Blake, & Vila
Abba in Space? Blake's 7 ran for 4 years on BBC 1 from 1978 to '81. Blake and his gang of rebels cruised space in their hugely advanced space craft, the Liberator. They were fighting the evil Federation, run by romantic diva Servalan (Jacqueline Pearce).

Blake's crew looked rather more like Abba, with their unflattering beige combinations of nylon and leather, and an endless supply of perming hairspray. Blake himself left after two years, leaving his rebels in the hands of Shakespearean schemer Avon (Paul Darrow).

The show aimed to be a grittily realistic TV answer to Star Wars, only on Dr Who's budget. The result is controversially stylized, with bold use of Colour Separation Overlay, bright lighting and big hair.

In the episode "Moloch" we see Avon pursuing Servalan to the edge of the universe. She's discovered a corrupt Federation colony, who hold the key to the ultimate lifeform - the mysterious Moloch.




Liberator was the 1st ship utilized by Blake and his crew! After it's loss, Scorpio with a navigational computer called "Slave" took over!
