Hot take: Deep Space Nine is a deserved classic not because it was the black sheep of the Star Trek clan, but because it remembered best what made TOS the classic it was (and is) in the prior generation. The problem wasn’t DS9. The problem was that everyone else, including Gene himself, had changed their minds about…
So this asshole was in the theater with his phone out taking pictures? He’s worse than the spoiler.
To be fair, that’s an Australian cow. It’s size is greatly exaggerated by the Mercator projection.
And our basic skills. I can see a Jetsons like future in which this is a thing and nobody can do it on their own anymore.
Wajid Ali, a self-taught artist based in the United Kingdom, creates masterpieces using a medium you probably gave up sometime around the fifth grade: colored pencils.

Dmitry Grozov, aka Ahriman, is a freelance artist from Russia who has an uncanny ability for taking things that aren’t anime and making them look like they came straight off a bootleg 1980s VHS.
Crazy twists! Shocking murders! Secret hosts! The ultimate Bernard vs. Dolores showdown! If those are the things you loved about watching Westworld, last night’s season two finale had to be immensely satisfying. If you wanted everything to make sense, well… maybe not so much.
I’ve been going over in my head the ways in which the Justice League movie failed. From the problems it inherited from Batman v Superman (namely: Batman and Superman’s characterization) to the fact that it had to introduce a bunch of new superheroes and get us to care about them at the same time as a generic alien…

On August 17, 2017, astronomers witnessed an extraordinary celestial event: a collision between two ultra-dense neutron stars. Scientists had never seen anything quite like it, leading to much speculation as to what happened in the wake of the monumental encounter. New research now suggests the collision produced a…
Cowboy Bebop first aired from April 3 to June 26 in 1998, and two decades later, it’s still one of the greats. Compete staffer Eric Van Allen started up a rewatch of the show and inspired all of the Cowboy Bebop fans on Kotaku and Compete’s staff to reminisce about this foundational and groundbreaking anime.
Very nice little video with an excellent use of negative space and darkness to represent mankind’s attempts top conquer the dark.
When we talk about shows we love, it’s usually more in general terms—an overall quality, a favorite season. But what’s a single episode that you can go and revisit over and over again, regardless of its place in the rest of a show’s continuity?
Those Nissan managers are just plain stupid.
The Enterprise isn’t just quintessential to the long history of Star Trek, it’s also one of the most iconic starships of all time. It was the star of the classic series, but later and earlier versions of it also sat at the heart of The Next Generation and Enterprise, and beyond that in film. Now that we know the ship…
I’m two episodes in to Laeta Kalogridis’ amazing new series on Netflix, and I’m already amazed. Altered Carbon is what Scifi TV should aspire to. (Yes, specifically TV.) Strap in, it’s time to talk shop. No Spoilers.
