Space Pirate Captain Harlock

In a nostalgic flashback to Japanese anime of the 1980s, Space Pirate Captain Harlock is returning in a new 3D animated movie. James Cameron says of the film “This movie is already legendary.” Judging from this trailer, it does look to be pretty awesome. It’s been a long time since the old days of the Captain Harlock, Queen Emeraldas, and Galaxy Express 999, so we’ll just have to see how this film plays out.

Captain Kirk to Command Navy’s Latest Destroyer

The US Navy’s latest, most technologically advanced destroyer has just hit the water, and it is to be commanded by none other than Captain James Kirk. No joke. Not only is the new USS Zumwalt designed with classified stealth technologies, but will very likely be fitted with an electromagnetic railgun and directed energy weapons within the next few years! This is truly a ship deserving of a captain named James Kirk.

Mythania Site Updated

I have just completed a major overhaul of my Mythania web site, and things should be looking a lot better now. The web site menu, layout, navigation, and other features should be a lot easier to interact with, and I also have an image gallery up, so take a look at that as well!

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

The first episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, narrated by astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson, will be airing on Fox on Sunday, March 9th, at 9pm. This is indeed the follow-up to the 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, presented by Carl Sagan, and with Neil deGrasse Tyson at the helm, it can’t possibly go wrong (then again, it is on Fox, so you never know…)
