Movies

A movie (also film or motion picture) is an artistic form of entertainment, popular on various worlds in similar forms. Throughout the 20th, 21st and 22nd centuries movies were typically viewed in movie theatres, but were also available for home viewing on a television. The Denobulans were said to have had something similar to films and television centuries ago, but gave it up when they decided their real lives were much more interesting.

Can the couple triumph over adversity and live happily ever after? The title Aisha par'Mach is derived from both the Vulcan and Klingon words for love.


Bride of Chaotica, The

(VOY: Bride of Chaotica!)

Perhaps the most well known of the 1930's science fiction B-movies to feature Captain Proton, "scourge of intergalactic evil", the movie focused on the romance between Doctor Chaotica and Queen Arachnia, who were constantly shifting between love and an attempt to kill the other, as they try once again to conquer the planet Earth and rid themselves of Captain Proton.

(TNG Novel: Greater Than The Sum)

Set near the beginning of the warp-5 era in the mid 22nd century, The Boomer Diaries follows those early pioneers of Earth's deep-space exploration utilising a soap opera format.

Jurassic Starship Fossil Guardians

(KS15: The Cabinet of Doctor Cuvier)

Created in 2369, the series follows the various adventures of five Federation teens who must fight against a reawakened evil... 170 million years earlier, an epic battle was fought on the sacred grounds of the Temple of the Ancients between Tyro, crowned Prince of the Jurassic Bandarian Empire, and the evil sorceress, Millenia the Time Witch. Standing with their prince in the final moments of their once proud empire are the last of the Bandar warriors, known as the Fossil Guardians. But even with their combined powers and the aid of the legendary Sword of Ages, Millenia is a force to be reckoned with. She seeks to gain control of Bandar and with it, bring about her own 'Endless Millenium'.


The Fossil Guardians know that in their weakened state they would not be unable to defeat the sorceress so instead they decided to give her what she wanted; "If you want Bandar, you will stay here forever, trapped within Time itself!" - Tyro. Summoning the immense power of the Sword of Ages to turn her magic back on her, Tyro and his Guardians trapped Millenia within a frozen moment, contained inside a metal seal in the remains of the destroyed temple.


Where she would remain until a class field trip brings five teenagers to the site of the ancient temple. Discovering the seal amongst the rubble, they unearth it and unwittingly free Millenia from her prison. Demanding that the five youths pledge themselves to her she becomes enraged at their refusal and instantly strikes at them. Before she can do any real damage, an intense glowing light repels her and forces her to flee in the form of an alien bird. The light then takes on the form of Tyro and reveals that his physical form has decayed and only his consciousness remains. After explaining the danger Millenia poses, the prince recruits the teens in his quest to stop her from causing the same destruction to the worlds of the Federation that she did to Bandar and hundreds of others. To achieve this, Tyro grants them the powers and weapons of his Fossil Guardians.
