I’m hoping to dive back into Feat of Clay soon, too.

I will have a movie review this month, probably of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and I’m also a couple months behind on vignettes, so look for two this month, as well as at least one more TV review (possibly of the new season of What We Do in the Shadows, possibly Only Murders in the Building, possibly the new season of Animal Kingdom, possibly the first season of What If…?, possibly some combination of those, or all four). And, of course, tons more pictures of small furry creatures………

So now’s a great time to support me, as you get all this cool stuff with lots more to come.

11 thoughts on the new Trek announcements on Patreon

For all Patreon supporters, I’ve posted a list of my eleven thoughts on the various new announcements made about the various Star Trek shows on “First Contact Day” 2021.

An excerpt:

We’re getting more of President T’Rina! And maybe another President? One of my favorite characters in Discovery season three was Ni’Var President T’Rina, who was in charge of the united Vulcan and Romulan people. She’s in several scenes in the teaser trailer, which makes me very happy, as Tara Rosling played her with an impressive dignity and gravitas. There’s another character, who appears to be at least part Cardassian, who also seems to be the Federation President. As the guy who wrote the book on the Federation presidency, I’m very eager to a) find out of she really is the Federation President and if so, b) learn lots of things about her.

Since the holidays, I’ve posted a bunch of stuff to Patreon:

  • $1/month and up: a review of Batman: Soul of the Dragon
  • $2/month and up: more than a dozen cat pictures
  • $5/month and up: reviews of The West Wing season 1 and season 2, and of Murdoch Mysteries seasons 2-13
  • $7/month and up: four excerpts from Feat of Clay
  • $10/month and up: the Bram Gold vignette “Y2K”
  • $20/month and up: first looks at Feat of Clay Chapters 4-7

Expect The West Wing season 3 to be the next TV review, and I’ve still got fifteen shows I’ve watched that I want to review (with more shows that I’m still in the midst of watching). I may have a bonus movie review or two this month (I’ve rewatched Big Night and seen The Princess and the Frog recently, and have the urge to write about both), I still have to write January’s vignette, and there will be more excerpts and first looks from Feat of Clay.

So this is a really good time to support my Patreon. For a measly twenty bucks a month you get all that stuff listed above in particular. In general, you get monthly movie reviews, weekly excerpts from my works in progress, monthly vignettes featuring my original characters, regular doses of cat pictures, anywhere between one and five TV reviews a month, and first looks at my first drafts.

Please consider supporting!
