Checking in for 2014

Hello, everyone. Jammer here. Still alive. Just to let everyone know, this site is not abandoned. Not at all. I continue to read all comments every day posted on the website, via the comment browser, which might be one of the best features I ever put on the site.

Life is good. Our baby daughter took her first steps (without holding onto furniture, which she’s been walking along for a couple months now) last weekend during the much-hyped “polar vortex.” She’s still learning the whole sustained balance thing. Also, during the polar vortex I broke in my new snow thrower on a day where it was 15 degrees below zero with negative-45-degree wind chills. Fun times!

We’re well settled into our new home. I’ve got lots of various little jobs and tasks around the house still on my list. And every week is a blur for us with our daily routines as full-time working mom and dad. And, of course, there were the holidays. Much craziness there, of course. Also a blur.

But things look to be settling down a bit. This means I will actually finally probably be able to find some weekend writing time this month to finish that long-delayed Star Trek Into Darkness review. Don’t doubt my resolve to see something through to completion just because it has taken so long for it to happen. I point to my TNG reviews as Exhibit A.

So, happy new year! Looking forward to delivering at least one new review in 2014!

    Jammer good to know you are ok. And if you find time watch Helix, it is the best sci fi series of the last years/

    Great to hear from you! Looking forward to the review.

    There have been rumors of a new Trek TV show in the works. One of these days, it’d be great to hear your thoughts on what such a show would need to do to succeed.

    Rumors of a new Trek show? You’re not talking about the one with Captain Ransom, are you? I haven’t heard any other rumors…

    Might be a fun conversation to have, though…what would a new Trek series need to succeed?

    Oh and Jammer, enjoy your life and don’t hurry back. :)

    Awesome news. Glad family life is treating you well.

    My only concern is once the STID review comes up what other reason will you to update this site?

    @Brandon, Orci has hinted that he’s trying to get a new show launched:

    Also, separately, Michael Dorn has said that there’s some interest in his script for a Klingon show (although I’m much more skeptical that will ever happen)

    Oh god no.

    Glad you’re coming back, Jammer. For those who sat through Into Darkness–avenge us.

    Michael Dorn’s wrong, thankfully. He’s becoming the George Takei (“fans want Excelsior!”) of TNG.

    With some unfortunate tardiness, I wish all the fellow Trekkies a happy and prosperous New Year. Most of all, to Jammer I wish a beautiful and fulfilling family life with at least two more children to come. If that number threatens to overload your system, know that your faithful readers and posters will always be there to help you reverse polarity.

    Cheers Jammer and best of luck!

    My April Fool’s idea:

    Wait to post the review until April 1st. The week before, let everyone know that at long last the review is coming. Tell people that after toiling on the review for a year that you are almost there. Put a countdown on the page if you would like.

    Then, on April Fool’s Day, post a link to the review and have the review read, “This movie sucks.”

    Well he missed the boat on that one.
