Addendum.

The other fix, would be un-killing Luke Skywalker, and simply making so he teleported away or something. Look if Star Trek can un-kill Spock, Disney can retcon Luke Skywalker back to life, which would allow for Luke, Mara, Rey, AS A FAMILY to rebuild the Jedi Order and take down whomever ends up running the First Order (Cause, I'm fairly sure Snoke is going to end up being alive...)

 Rumour: Lucasfilm looking to cast  Mara Jade  in Star Wars: Episode IX

This is good... But, a wasted opportunity once again. See, I have little doubt the Lucasfilms and Disney are trying to save Rian Johnon's disaster which was The Last Jedi, by incorporating some of the beloved Extended Universe into the next movie.

But its going to take more than making Mara Jade, canon again to fix what Disney and Rian Johnson broke. This alone won't de-MarySue Rey (Nobody) either. Of course making her a Skywalker should have been done upfront as I think was JJ Abrams plan until Rian Jonnson got involved.

I am of two minds about this. Yes seeing an actress cast to play Mara Jade in the flesh is awesome, but I can't help but think its too little too late.

After three episodes I found myself longing for the 90s movie reboot, which honestly, felt more like Lost in Space, than this version, which takes itself way too seriously does.

Something tells me, the critics are going to love this, however.

I mean it was OK enough. But I thought very few of the characters were appealing. They were, mostly dull. Judy Robinson, seemed like the only one with any sort of personality. 

And I thought Parker Posey's 'Dr' Smith, dullest of all. Yeah, the one thing in any sort of Lost in Space incarnation you don't want is a meh, Dr. Smith.

Remember when I wrote Starblade, and there was a very clear wall around things like 'Falcanian', 'Human', and 'Morningstar'.

Not so much by the time of The Machine Builder's Lament.

Yeah. That's all really mushy now. Though that should have been obvious, when Rene LaSalle, a Morningstar had a son with a human woman.

The term "Falcanian" is also now designating a much more nebulous sort of being. This is, because Falcanians are becoming more akin to Vril. Ah, what humans might call 'angels'...

The only sure things we can say about Falcanians is, they have wings (of some variation...), a plaited-tail, and of course oval, pointy ears.

I have republished my books on Smashwords, and added a link above to my profile. However I still use Draft2Digital  as my distribution service, however the more I thought about it, much like Lulu.com, I don't wish to forgo Smashwords as a Martketplace.

I find I did sell a surprising amount of books via them directly and was missing getting those purchase notifications...

And the glorious coupon codes. Just make it easier to do giveaways should I want. 

My biggest gripe is, Smashwords dependence upon Paypal - Which I loath. There's no (good) reason Smashwords doesn't do direct deposit like Amazon. My Paypal experience sucked, and I have not been able to fix it. Which means I must collect revenue by means of old fashion hard copy checks from both Lulu.com (anther place I seem to have been selling good at... go figure?) and Smashwords.

Guess what I'm saying is. Smashwords is a viable and lively book marketplace, and despite some headaches it causes, I do like it for that.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

If there were any doubt, Drew Cain, is a better man than Jason Morgan, today's episode put that to rest. Not only is Drew a more interesting character, in a real world sense, he's a better person.

Jason Morgan, is Sonny's Robot...

Drew Cain, grows and learns from his experiences.

It was great to return to the Conner Family after all these years, and really did feel like the show only took a loooooong break.

Roseanne Barr, should be very proud for delivering such a well rounded comedy series. Can't wait to see more.

The new charcters, IE Roseanne, and Dan's grandkids serve to enhance the show, and provide a sense of familiarity, and yet difference.

And it really became more apparent in today's episode. Steve Burton, is a fine actor, but Jason is so one-note its tedious, and when he is compared against Drew, as a character he really does only look like Sonny's lapdog.

Wait until I write about Prince Vulcan's, girlfriend... (Not a catgirl... Ahem...) http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


======================================================

“Mars Freightliner, and Miss Persis Bengalara.” The chiseled black haired Morningstar man declared putting his paperwork down. Free hand around a bosomy tan, and black-dappled, with a white undercoat catgirl, in six inch stilettos. Her ringed-tail pleasurably swayed.

The Chitraka woman’s, sensitive ears twitched when she heard Sula coo. “What an adorable baby.”

Sarina smiled. “Thank, you.”

“You have quite a litter.”

Diesel, Thorium, and Octane were – Very impressed by Persis Bengalara. Sure, they’d seen Chitraka before, but Persis was a sight to behold. Naturally little boys, being boys are transfixed by curvy things and their blue Morningstar eyes all but popped out of their sockets. Hela, being a good big sister wouldn’t stand for it. “Stop it!” Attempted to cover their eyes, failed miserably. Mumbled. “So, embarrassing...”

“Oh, and what a pretty minx you are.” Persis purred, a glint in her purple eyes.

Hela flushed, stammered. “Thanks.”

While doing my usual blog reading thing, thing, I learned about IDKA, sort of the Swedish Facebook. It seems pretty new. Reminds me a great of the early days of Myspace, and Facebook.

The interface is, interesting. Like so many things it seems deceptively complex. In a few ways, I'd say its almost too simple. Sort of in that same way, uploading books on Google Books is too simple, which makes it harder to understand.

Anyhow, here's my profile. (All profiles are by default private)

Its interesting, the Voice of Rao, hasn't yet uttered a word. which is kind of ironic, and also leads me to think he - It, may be someone known to the DC Universe.

The Voice's behavior seems, ah, alien, in the manner a Doctor Who adversary might be. Get what I mean? Is he even a Kryptonian? I'm going to take a leap here, and suggest he is not.

In that case better to have spoilers ;)

This was one of my few issues with Babylon 5. More noticeable in the movie specials, and sometimes because of the movie specials. Events which should be talked about more openly, and or are common knowledge would get vague reference but it would be like they never took place.
