With Executive Producers in place, this INDEPENDENT production will be shot in 2014 in order to show the Star Trek community what episodes of Star Trek Equinox will look like.

Star Trek Equinox: The Night of Time stars acting veteran John Savage, reprising his role as Captain Rudy Ransom, iconic actor Gary Lockwood reprising his popular role of Gary Mitchell, best friend of James T. Kirk, in the classic Star Trek episode, “Where No Man Has Gone Before“, and introduces Blanca Blanco as Lieutenant Commander T’Lexa.

Fifteen years after the destruction of the USS Equinox (approximate star date 2393) Captain Rudy Ransom, who was beamed from his doomed ship by the Krotownans, is held prisoner in the Delta Quadrant for crimes against the race including trespassing in Krowtownan space and the deaths of Krowtownan starship crew members. Captain Ransom has very few choices but one chance to return to the Alpha Quadrant some 30,000 light years away.

The Chronic Rift Network is thrilled to be able to have the comedy stylings of Dan Lackaye and Travis Searle on our network. The voyage of radio genius continues with a new episode.  Starting out as The Pirate Ship in the 90s, the boys charted the rough waters of the early days of the Internet and managed to deliver comedy gold week after week.  They were one of the inspirations for The Chronic Rift becoming a podcast.  Last fall, Dan & Travis reunited with a new podcast, bringing back many of the elements of the original Pirate Ship, and John has been on their case to join the network ever since.

Travis rates his fill-ins, we sweep across New England, and check out James Lipton's list of collective nouns (he's some kind of authority on them, it seems!) Plus more travia, more news, and some 90-inchers! It's a new Dan & Travis Show.Check out all the fun of past episode by visiting them on the web.

Bill Vernon, AKA “the Wonderful Billy Flynn,” brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) on-air talent at WRAR Radio Station in Virginia. He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington and the Columbia School of Broadcasting. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at geekradiodaily.com (ding!)

 

 

 

 

 

In his twenty plus years as writer and film journalist, Dan Persons has interviewed the likes of Paul Verhoeven, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, Satoshi Kon and John Kricfalusi; published the well-received novella, "A Game of the Apocalypse", in The Ultimate Silver Surfer, edited by The Chronic Rift's own Keith R.A. Decandido; and been an occasional, and somewhat peculiar, guest on the public access incarnation of the Rift. He presently is the host of Mighty Movies Temple of BadMighty Movie Podcast, and The Cinefantastique Podcast when he isn't haunting the dining room of his local Popeye's.

 

 

 

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jim Beard was introduced to comic books at an early age by his father, who passed on to him a love for the medium and the pulp characters who preceded it. After decades of reading, collecting and dissecting comics, Jim became a published writer when he sold a story to DC Comics in 2002. Since that time he's written official Star Wars and Ghostbusters comic stories and contributed articles and essays to several volumes of comic book history.

His prose work includes GOTHAM CITY 14 MILES, a book of essays on the 1966 Batman TV series; SGT. JANUS, SPIRIT-BREAKER, a collection of pulp ghost stories featuring an Edwardian occult detective; MONSTER EARTH, a giant monster anthology; and CAPTAIN ACTION: RIDDLE OF THE GLOWING MEN, the first pulp prose novel based on the classic 1960s action figure.

Currently, Jim provides regular content for Marvel.com, the official Marvel Comics website, and is a regular columnist for Toledo Free Press.

Tonight's Menu: Welcome to the SciFi Rewind: Firefly

Firefly is an American space western drama television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon, under his Mutant Enemy Productions label. Whedon served as an executive producer, along with Tim Minear. The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a “Firefly-class” spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as “nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things”. The show explores the lives of a group of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In this future, the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures. According to Whedon’s vision, “nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today” - See more at: http://scifidinerpodcast.com/#sthash.3OFlyp6j.dpuf

This time on Presenting the Transcription Feature, we revisit two old favorites.  On The Jack Benny Program, Jack and Mary attend a special showing of suave British actor Ronald Colman's latest movie, A Double Life.  Colman and his wife Benita Hume play themselves in this episode.  They were frequent guests on Jack’s show.  So much so that many people thought they were actually his next door neighbors.  On Dragnet, Friday and Romero are up against a criminal armed with a bomb who’s threatening to blow up City Hall unless his convict brother is released.
