Evolution

Feb 16th, 2011 | By

Recently, some friends and I have been swapping DVDs and watching episodes of old SF shows from the 70s and 80s. Back when we were kids, Buck Rogers was a great show. Looking back on it 30 years later… well… as one friend put it, “God, if not for Erin Gray this show would be

Promises

Jan 3rd, 2011 | By

I don’t make promises unless I know I can keep them–which means I rarely make promises. That being said…  I make this promise to you: All media produced by Trilobyte Studios will (as much as possible) be released in cross-platform and/or platform-agnostic formats. No media will be released in a format that isn’t accessible via

What Ifs

Dec 19th, 2010 | By

I’ve been re-watching Deep Space 9.  It’s arguably the best series of the (post-1960s) Star Trek franchise, and definitely my favorite. This evening, I watched the episode “Battle Lines“.  As with many of the first-season episodes, it’s a bit simplistic.  It’s an obvious morality play about the nature of war.  However… there’s something deeper.  The

SyFy announced this week that Stargate: Universe is cancelled after this season is over.  While I have a number of criticisms about the show, it’s still one of the better science fiction shows on TV–and it’s just starting to find it’s feet. As with many of the well-written science fiction shows, SG:U fell victim to

Nov 23rd, 2010 | By

Following up on characters… Recently, I pulled out my Battlestar Galactica DVDs and rewatched the entire series, from beginning to end–including that abomination known as “The Plan”. I’m also a fan of Stargate: Universe (sometimes jokingly referred to as “Stargate: Galactica”). It’s fairly easy to compare the two, and many people have done so–usually to

Little by Little

Nov 19th, 2010 | By

Small Changes and Big Guns Things are moving slowly, but they’re moving–and that’s what counts. A lot of what’s happening is happening behind the scenes.  For example, today we added another consultant.  This one has expertise in linguistics and (cutting edge) AI development.  We already have a consultant for military and space matters.  This is

Why?

Nov 12th, 2010 | By

Even at this stage of the project, I run into this question repeatedly:  Why? The answer is:  Because. Okay… so it’s a *little* more complicated than that, but… not a whole lot. Years before iTunes ever appeared, I suggested that it would be a goldmine to offer music for sale online for 50 or 75
