The new Star Trek Online Special Task Force mission Gravity Kills can be full of frustration, so here is my guide to try and keep it as easy as possible when chasing Hawking particles.
All power to the engines: If you're going after the Hawking particles, you got to use your speed and piloting skills, avoid engaging the enemy at all costsDon't use full impulse when chasing Hawking Particles, but do use it if you're not under attack to escape from the black holeIf you get sucked into the black hole, hit the button to 'warp jump', otherwise you will need to re-spawnIf you have engine batteries use themSave evasive maneuvers for a speed boost for after you get a Hawking particle, also helps to try and escape black hole.
Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... It's Tuesday and we had a new episode of Gotham last night, 'Mad City: The Gentle Art of Making Enemies' (Season 3, Episode 14) and this is of course my review of what went down. There will be spoilers my friends! Also: Gotham is on hiatus until mid-late April thanks to 24, a show I don't intend to watch
Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... We had a brand new episode of Supergirl tonight with 'We Can be Heroes' (Season 2, Episode 10) and of course this is a review of that episode. This video contains heavy spoilers.
This is not a live stream replay, no it's a gaming video done directly for my pokey little YT channel, a little walk through of The Tzenkethi Front, showing you what works for me
Target the cruisers first, they support the shields of the Tzenkethi ships that carry the bombsIf you get a bomb, put all power to the engines, use your speed to get where you need to as quickly as powerYou can't use full impulse, but you can use engine batteries and evasive maneuvers for speed boosts With careful piloting you can launch the bomb near the Tzenkethi bases without them getting a shot off on your ship (as seen in the video, I took out two myself)
A while back I took a look at a demo for Tyler Model 005 and I had some time today to take a look at a more recent build... unfortunately this version was a little buggy and was unable to progress far. But the game looks great and the controls are responsive
On this edition of Tales From The TARDIS, we're looking at part two of the Doctor Who story 'The Space Museum' titled 'The Dimensions of Time' and see why The Space Museum isn't considered memorable beyond one great moment in this episode involving a Dalek.

Millions (Down 1.3 Million from previous week) Picking up right
from where part 1 ended, The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki are in
the museum and must figure out how to proceed in order to avoid
ending up in the cases, do they stay put or try to make it back to
the TARDIS, which is what they try to do with Ian taking a ray gun
that is on display as a possible way to bluff their way out of
trouble… however the museum is very much like a maze with every
corridor looking the same. Vicki takes charge in terms of suggesting
which way to g…

Today we're going over episode 22 of the Anime 'Blue Seed', this episode is titled "Sadness, Fate, Momiji Kushinada" and showed how the government was going to respond to the aragami planet growth
PLANTED SEEDS Blue Seed Episode 21 "Sadness, Fate, Momiji Kushinada!" Original Air Date: February 22, 1995 English Air Date: January 15, 2000
The moon’s orbit has changed, Tokyo and other major cities in Japan have been turned into real urban jungles with all of the Aragami plants
The Prime Minister orders for Momiji to be sacrificed and the TAC to be dissolved, this could be seen as a result of Matusdara’s solutions to previous Aragami encounters not working against the plants or because Mr. Kunikda, Ryoko & Koume go rouge to rescue Momiji
Momiji is surprisingly okay with being sacrificed, cause she figures Kusanagi will either save her or she’ll get revenge for his death. This leads to Ryoko slapping some sense into M…
Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... Tonight was NXT Takeover San Antonio, and of course this is my reaction to the five match card that was totally 'okay'.
RING THE BELL Tye Dillinger vs Eric Young -Young had Sanity come out with him, Young told Tye it was his last chance to join the group -Tye picks up Young's jacket, tosses it at him and opens the match with punches -Solid match, Young is what he is, solid but bland as hell, while Tye continues to be the workhorse -Young's Sanity associates did get involved in the match, and the distractions nearly resulted in EY get winning and prevented him from taking a loss following a Tye-breaker -Eric Young got the win with the overly complicated, stupid as hell looking hotshot-wheelbarrow neckbreaker Andrade Almas vs Roderick Strong -Since turning heel, Almas has been fairly decent, Strong is yet another 'indy darling' signed by Triple H due to NXT's failure to develop male stars in the past two years -Match felt v…

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...Today we start our look at the four part Doctor Who story 'The Space Museum' with our look at part one of the story which is also called 'The Space Museum'!
TIME AND RELATIVE DIMENSION
The Space Museum
Part 1: ‘The Space Museum’
Original Air Date:
April 24, 1965
Million (Up 1 Million from previous week)
Notes: This episode is one
where we see all four members of the TARDIS crew work together for an
extended period of time The ‘time and
relativity’ portion of Doctor Who is partially explained when The
TARDIS jumps a time track, allowing everyone to roam around without
being scene because that are not in ‘time’ with everything around
them for they arrived earlier than they were supposed too.
We are reminded that
Vicki is from the future, 300 after The Dalek Invasion of Earth and
she has a grasp of temporal mechanics
For a comparison of
the ‘out of time phase’ aspect of this episode, check out the
Last year I took a look at a Ms. Tree comic, and since then I came across a rather unique trade paperback collection that collects three of the comic's major storylines from 1985!
The Mystery Of Ms. Tree Ms. Tree Published Date: July
Paperjacks (listed as part of Bogie’s Mystery)
Last year I reviewed
a copy of Ms. Tree issue #26, and I had a great exchange with Deni
Loubert and the history of her company Renegade Press which continued
to published the comic book series after her split with Dave Sims.
However during the run an prior to the closure of Renegade Press… A
Ms. Tree trade paperback collection was released through Paperjacks,
a publisher based out of Canada
I have found very
little on the publisher itself, other than it was around at least
twice, one from 1974 to 1977, and then again from 1980 to 1988, and
it has an online reputation for having some rather ugly covers. And
that this little paperback is the only comic li…
