I have expressed my love of Star Trek, and of DIY Media on several occasions. I’m particularly fond of the weird monstrosity that is Star Trek: The Animated Series. A few years back, a Star Trek fan series called Starship Farragut released some animated episodes of their own. They are every bit as wacky, weird, and wonderful as their inspiration.
I have spent a large portion of the last two days playing Seedship by Scifi author John Ayliff. In this game, you play as the AI of a spaceship, with the last 1000 humans onboard, charged with ferrying them through the void, and ensuring that they are able to thrive. It’s a generative, text based game, and it’s super engrossing.
The Chatham Community Theater in New Jersey mounted an excellent production of Monty Python’s Spamalot, and they were kind enough to Film it (well! with multiple cameras!) and post it to youtube. It’s pretty great, and I was super pleased to find it online. See the embedded play below:
