I run Popped Culture (culturepopped.blogspot.com/) and am the social media editor at the National Post. I REALLY love pop culture mashups.
Presenting the National Post’s Tournament of Star Trek Captains!
From Kirk’s conundrum with Khan to Picard’s battles with the Borg, from Janeway’s brainbusting dilemmas with a holographic doctor to Sisko standing sentry with a Changeling on Deep Space Nine, the captains of Star Trek have provided some of the most iconic moments in sci-fi history over almost 50 years of TV series and films. But what if you had to pick just one? In our positively Q-esque quest to discover which Trek boss is No. 1 to no one (sorry, Riker, you need not apply here), we’ve devised a battle royal of sorts, a Captains Crunch, if you will. Over the next three days, join us and vote for your favourites across three rounds as we pick the one true Boss of the Bridge in honour of the release of Star Trek Into Darkness on Wednesday evening.

With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
There has never been a more appropriate cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity than this.
I am in awe, Col. Hadfield, and hope my two young boys will aspire to similar heights. Welcome home!
I’ve just listed 5 signed, box canvas prints of ‘The Adoration of Elphie’ (Wicked / The Wizard of Oz) up on the eBays - Here they are!
They’re the exact same size as the original (28” x 15.5”) and I couldn’t be more pleased with how they’ve turned out :)
Quantities are extremely limited - I’ll be getting more in sporadically. Thanks for your kindness and support, as always!
