At BOOM Studios' Power Rangers #0 release party, writer Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade, Toil and Trouble) talks with Fanboy Comics' Barbra Dillon about her recent work on Power Rangers, her interactions with fans, and more.

“So, let me get this straight: Al we have to do is get past an enemy fleet, avoid a tachyon detection grid, beam into the middle of Klingon headquarters, and avoid the Brotherhood of the Sword long enough to set these things up and activate them in front of Gowron?”
     -- Chief Miles O’Brien


Let’s get something out of the way right up front. Starfleet makes no sense as a military organization. I know, this isn’t exactly a revelation. I’m not talking about the mayfly-level lifespan of the red shirts, or their insistence at beaming down to new planets without first checking for breathable atmosphere. I’m talking about the trope that exists in nearly every show which insists the main characters do everything.

As Wonder Fever continues to heat up in anticipation of her big screen debut in Batman V Superman and the character's 75th anniversary, Wonder Woman is perfectly poised to become an even bigger pop culture phenomenon in 2016.

When viewed as a whole, season four is a definite oddball in the tapestry of DS9. The reason for this is as simple as it is dreaded: executive meddling. Stressed over poor ratings and their flagship program going off the air, the brass at Paramount made some demands of the DS9 writing staff. While Behr and company wanted to bridge seasons three and four with the story of the Dominion coming to Earth (what became the two-parter nestled in the middle of season four's “Homefront” and “Paradise Lost”), executives didn’t want a cliffhanger. They also wanted something big to “shake things up.”

Greetings, my fellow Wonder Fans! Welcome to the first Wonder Woman Wednesday of 2016!

“That’s who I am. That’s what I do. I’m a businessman, and more than that, I’m a Fer,engi businessman. Do you know what that means? It means that I’m not exploiting people at random. I’m doing it to a specific set of rules -- the Rules of Acquisition. And I won’t disregard them when I find them inconvenient.”

It’s difficult to know what our relationship with our bodies is going to be like in the future. As technology advances, even what we consider to be our bodies has changed. Medical implants, from simple prosthetics to replacement organs, are already considered part of us. What will change as the items go into the more fantastical? When I finally get my chainsaw shark-cannon arms, will they truly be considered me?

Hey there, hi there, ho there, Wonder Fans! This week being the last week of 2015 brings us a special look back at the Wonder Woman highlights (and low lights) of 2015.

The more experienced I become in my chosen vocation, the more I appreciate the slow rehabilitation of Dr. Julian Bashir. Other than a misstep next season which the actor hated, the character has steadily progressed from an arrogant, sexually aggressive naif to arguably one of the most heroic characters in science fiction. It was a pretty steep climb, too, when you remember just how obnoxious he was in the early going, and how unbearably creepily he treated Dax. This episode, nestled here at the end of the fourth season and serving to remind us just how monstrous the Dominion can be, is arguably the most important Bashir episode, harnessing his foibles and virtues into a compelling portrait of a flawed hero.

Greetings, fellow disciples of Wonder!  In the spirit of the season, I present to you a special Christmas Edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday! ('Twas the Wednesday before Christmas, after all! Or is that 'twis? 'Twatever! You know what I mean.)
