The most exciting news in years for Trek fans was the announcement that Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) was taking the reins as showrunner on a new CBS series called Star Trek: Discovery. But now the series premiere has been delayed until May 2017 after originally being slated for January, and Fuller has stepped away from the project because he’s so busy with other work.
The separation seems amicable. CBS says it is still committed to the project, and Fuller legitimately has his plate full with a forthcoming American Gods miniseries and a new Amazing Stories show. Still, it’s not great to see such a visionary writer step away from a series that sounds so promising.
We already know that Discovery will focus on the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery, whose starship explored the galaxy before Kirk was captain of the Enterprise. The lead will be a female lieutenant commander not yet cast, which has been a cause of concern to the studio. According to The Hollywood Reporter, other main characters include “an openly gay actor as one of the male leads (which Fuller confirmed), a female admiral, a male Klingon captain, a male admiral, a male adviser, and a British male doctor.” Rumors are swirling that the series starts with a mutiny, though that has not been confirmed.
May be delayed but I’m still excited for this.

Peeps, here’s your six-million-seasons jam for today.
It’s a fan video but still pretty good. I love the countdowns. And her voice. And the outro guitar solo at 2:50. M83 is superb at channeling the 80s. 🎸🎷

I just read a review for the Roland VT-3 Voice Transformer. The following is a quote:
There’s a button that says ‘ROBOT,’ which can only mean good times.

This Halloween is especially terrifying for the Mistress of the Dark.
Elvira has always brought a cheerful vibe to her appearances and performances. Despite surrounding herself with the gruesome and macabre, she reads as the prom queen of the Monster Mash, or the most popular gal at the Werewolf Bar Mitzvah. Naturally, this isn’t someone who would get freaked out about a rogue spider in her bathroom. But since I write a column about fear, when I had the opportunity to meet Elvira last week, all I wanted to know was what scares her?
