Some people hated the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery and some loved it. I was entertained myself and I will tune in to the series. I did have lots of problems, however there were not enough negatives for me to skip past the series altogether. I will tune into it! I admit I am not the biggest of Trekkies or Trekkers, so I did not read a lot more than just a basic plot of the series before watching the first two episodes. So I did not know what to be expecting. Maybe this is one of the reasons that I was not as disappointed as others. Also, I can except the changes in history and canon and the look of the Klingons. Which I know that’s blasphemy for some out there.


The only *SPOILER* I will give is…


***SPOILER*** I was anxiously waiting to see Anthony Rapp’s character of Lt. Paul Stamlets and Wilson Cruz as Medical Officer Hugh Culber. Since they did not appear, I was disappointed. I am a bit biased on wanting to like their characters as I was hoping to see these two openly gay actors playing two gay characters in a sci-fi show that has had mostly only heterosexual relationships. So not seeing any hint of either of them, was a downer for me. However I can wait. I will be patient and I do want to see the series based on many other factors besides just this. Although this is just my opinion though. What do you think? Did you like it?



Anthony Rapp let it be known at San Diego Comic Con 2017 that he will be in a relationship with Wilson Cruz on Star Trek: Discovery. Rapp will play Starfleet Science Officer Lt. Stamets and Cruz will be medical officer Dr. Hugh Culber.

Rapp stated: “I can announce that Wilson Cruz will play my love interest and my partner in Star Trek: Discovery…I’m very proud of that and that he’s a scientist.”


Awesome! Not only will we have another gay couple in Star Trek but the characters will be played by gay men. I know that should not be a huge deal but to me it is a big deal. Other than a few cable shows like Looking, or Queer as Folk where the show is described as being a gay show, most gay couples on screen are played by at least one or both actors who identify as heterosexual in their personal lives. So this does make me happy. Plus I adore both Wilson and Anthony. Wilson will always be that guy from My So Called Life while Anthony is the annoying best friend in Adventures in Babysitting (or the guy from Rent).


Star Trek: Discovery is set to air on September 24, 2017 on CBS All Access. Obviously there are a lot of haters for many reasons on this show, and this gay romance is something that is adding to it. I personally cannot wait to see this and hope that the show is a success. What do you think of Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp in these roles?

Before you know it, The Last Jedi will be out. Star Wars fans will be going insane everyday as the date gets closer. So many promos and ads will be posted everywhere. Vanity Fair made several covers with the main cast that are beautiful! My personal favorite is the cover with Finn and Poe with new character Rose Tico. But then I’m really hoping that Finn/Poe will be a thing. That’s just my personal feelings. Although the last cover with the late Carrie Fisher does have a special meaning. Anyways, I just wanted to share these in case anyone has not seen them yet. The Last Jedi comes out December 15, 2017.

I know everyone already knows, but Carrie Fisher has passed on. I am quite saddened by this. Princess Leia was obviously her most well known role, but she was also a person that was cared about by many others. She will be missed by so many. Including me. I am breaking my rule of not showing women on my site for her. It took a Princess passing for me to break that rule. And I will add that for so many reasons, including this factor, the year 2016 has not been great.

Carrie Fisher October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016


I literally have no other reason to post these except that the colors distracted me and I realize that it looks very pretty. That is all. I will return to posting comic/toys/porn stuff shortly in just a bit.

Go see Rogue One! This was a great movie! It ties in perfectly with the Star Wars franchise and the story is great. I loved the characters and I feel as though many more movies should be made about the unsung heroes within this intergalactic conflict. There are major spoilers in this video, so watch with caution.

Mr. Sulu will be a character in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond movie. Some people are outraged, some people are happy. Some could care less. I personally think this is great news. There are so few mainstream gay men portrayed in sci fi movies, this is a welcome change. Heterosexuals are generally pandered to on a regular basis, so it is a bit of a shock, but I think this is a very positive move on writer Simon Pegg’s part. What do you think?

Sulu

Recently confirmed on reputable site Io9.com, Hikaru Sulu, played originally by George Takei and currently played by John Cho is a gay character in the current Star Trek Universe. This will be shown in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond movie set to come out on July 22, 2016. Was Sulu always gay in the old universe as well? I have searched for anything confirming the character’s sexuality, and other than him having a daughter, nothing has been stated. The new universe also confirms him having a daughter with his male partner, so this is a great nod to continuity from the previous universe.

George Sulu

This is an obvious nod to former Sulu actor played by the openly gay and incredibly smart performer George Takei. He is witty in his responses to haters in many platforms and is very tasteful in his statements. And yes, of course there are going to be lots of haters on Sulu being gay. Many heterosexual fanboys hate the idea of anything other than straight characters or bisexual women being shown on screen. Even though heterosexual characters are represented everywhere, non-stop and rammed down the audiences throats in all facets of media. See what I did there? So having an “established character” being shown as gay is something that haters cannot imagine. However the plus side to Sulu being gay is that his sexuality was never shown. So the age old argument that a ‘new character’ should be created and have that character shown as gay, is not appropriate. Sulu was never shown to be straight, so he very well could have always been gay. Which is exactly what I will start to believe from this point forward.

John

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and many do not like the new Star Trek universe, but I love it personally. And I am loving that Mr. Sulu is gay. I feel as though the heavy representation of heterosexuality has been done to death. More LGBT characters need to be shown on screen. I believe this is a positive move. What do you think?

Star Trek Beyond

Star Wars Force Awakens Cartoon
Ok, I want to see this Star Wars comic book/animation made! I love that Finn and Poe are depicted as being together, but not making it too obvious for haters to start complaining. Just a simple embrace to show that they are a couple. I would figuratively die if I saw this on screen.

Poe Finn

JJ Abrams has made it clear that there are and will probably be a gay character in the Star Wars Universe. He told the Daily Beast:

When I talk about inclusivity it’s not excluding gay characters. It’s about inclusivity. So of course…To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.

Gay Star Wars

What do straight bigoted fanboys hear when that is said? They hear: “JJ ABRAMS IS GOING TO PUT GAY PORN IN STAR WARS MOVIES! HE IS RUINING MY CHILDHOOD! WHY AREN’T MOVIES PANDERING TO STRAIGHT WHITE BOYS ANYMORE?!!!” No seriously, I can hear the homophobic talk already. Or at least read it on many forums that are already chastising this. This is Star Wars though. They have not shown sex on screen and have barely had kissing taken place throughout the run of all the movies. It will more likely have a gentle hand hold, and some pecs on the cheeks and maybe a mouth kiss if we are lucky. That is it. This is not an ‘R’ rated superhero movie. These are rated PG movies. Regardless, all these guys going on rants will still watch the movies and these movies will still go on to make billions more.

Poe and Finn

So what does having a gay character in the Star Wars movies mean? Literally anything. It does not mean that we will see Finn and Poe together in the next movie. But we can still ship them regardless and hope that Finn may be bisexual and be torn between Poe and Rey. We have gay characters already in the books and the now debunked expanded universe. So seeing these gay characters on screen is the next step. There can be any number of characters introduced in the coming movies, all of which will have their own rich backstories and development. Star Wars The Force Awakens has made over two billion dollars worldwide. Studios are definitely going to listen to Abrams and he story ideas.
