New Star Trek Franchise to Feature Openly Gay Female Captain

Paramount announced today that it is producing a pilot for a new Star Trek franchise to air in syndication. Back in the fold is Star Trek veteran Ronald D. Moore, who will executive produce. The series is currently in pre-production and set to air sometime in Spring 2015 with an initial order of 13 episodes.

"It's a new age and a new viewer base," said Moore. "Star Trek and science fiction in general have always been about imagining different, better societies. Why not a gay captain? That's something I wish we'd addressed a little more in Battlestar [Galactica], the diversity of a future society. What's taboo and what isn't in such a different world from ours?"

Casting remains open, but Moore declined to comment on who had already read for the role.

Mass Effect movie starring...femShep???

Apr. 1st, 2013 | 10:49 am

WHAT.


Since BioWare announced in 2010 that they had optioned Mass Effect as a film, details have been scant. We were told the film would focus on a male Commander Shepard and that it would not be an adaptation of any of the games. Screenwriting duties are being handled by relative newcomer Morgan Davis Foehl, taking over for Mark Protosevich, and that's it. Or is it?

Rumors are leaking that Foehl has been asked to outline a draft that would focus on a female Commander Shepard. A source at Legendary Entertainment says that while no final decision has been made, the Mass Effect film focusing on FemShep is a possibility and that there's no reason to "limit our options at this point."

Might this be a reaction to the announcement that MGM has acquired the rights to the Lara Croft franchise and will be producing their own girl-powered video game adaptation keeping in the same vein as the series' gritty reboot? One can only hope.

Click below to see a slideshow of who we'd cast as our beloved FemShep.

I really need Pitch Perfect fic where the Bellas do Timberlake's Suit and Tie, all in various lady tuxedos, and then Chloe and Beca bang because the performance is just that hot. That needs to be a thing. Ladies in tuxes in general.

STOP DOING THINGS TO ME, PITCH PERFECT.

Oh god what have I done.

First there were all these gifsets on tumblr.

Then I thought I'd actually watch the movie, just because it seemed really fun and I wanted to see if it lived up to the hype.

Then I read one fic. Just one.

WRONG.

AND NOW I AM HIP-DEEP IN PITCH PERFECT FIC AND HAVING LOTS OF BECA/CHLOE FEELINGS. SEND HELP.

Sif/Darcy Lewis (Thor) recs

Feb. 24th, 2013 | 11:40 pm

I started reading Sif/Darcy Lewis fic and now I am hooked on another rare pairing HELP.

At least I think it's rare? I can't find much for it outside of AO3. But I love the stuff there, where Sif is usually either this big beaming Asgardian who is hopeless at blending in on Midgard but Darcy likes her anyway or more introspective stories that discuss Sif's ~feelings~ and how she doesn't get why Thor thinks Jane is so special OH WAIT SHE TOTALLY DOES DARCY FEELINGS. In one story she brings Darcy a freshly-killed cow to woo her.

Recs!

Kindling by Sigridhr
In which Sif has a crush, has problems with labels, gets the girl, then almost loses her again, and discovers in the end things are sort of alright, even if the hardest problems in life are the ones you can’t charge at with a sword.
Sif is bored on Earth. Darcy is kind. Sif teaches Darcy to use a sword. There are lots of Sif feelings. I like when Sif has feelings.

this world that i found is too good to be true by lanyon
Darcy, Jane and Erik are staying on Asgard for reasons of security. Darcy is bored but her reputation precedes her.
Fun, a good Darcy voice, and there's creamy thighs.

a girl worth fighting for by beardsley
Darcy vs inexplicable courting rituals of Asgard.
This is one where Sif is like 980% Asgardian and Darcy is charmingly baffled at being wooed in the Asgardian fashion. I like that Darcy just rolls with the punches and it's totally plausible she would end up in a save-New-York style firefight (I mean, it's definitely in keeping with the movie because the award for Person Least Fazed By Discovering Aliens Are Real and They Look Like Us but Handsomer goes to Darcy Lewis.)

Mercy Me by sinuous_curve
Pure smut. Yes.

AUGH. MELATONIN-INDUCED NIGHTMARE.

You know how in the BSG miniseries, they went to Ragnar Anchorage to resupply? I had this horrifying nightmare that they left someone locked inside the anchorage when they left and she just had flashlight and nothing else and was going to die a long, cold, dark death inside a vast empty room in deep space. I was like GODDAMN that is cruel.

Someone rescued her later but she was pretty fucked up.

I mean, wouldn't anyone be though.

Another entry on my list of Ways Not To Die. But considering my preferred way to die is saving my starship from a warp core breach, anything is bound to be a disappointment.
