One of my many proposed projects has been one called Wannabe Trekker, where I watch one episode of Star Trek: Voyager every week and do a Vlog about it. After my first video went south due to some poor audio, I spent a lot of time rethinking the concept.
Part of the reason for going with Voyager was because it began in the ’90s and I have a special fondness for the science-fiction of that decade. Much of it wasn’t very good. Yet there was a warmth to it, and the sense that at least someone out there was trying, which I deeply identify with.
The more I got to thinking about covering sci-fi of the decade, the more excited I got. There was a lot more of it than you might think. I decided it might be fun to figure out which shows would be worth revisiting, maybe lay out a game plan, then give it a shot.
My initial thought is to avoid the ’90s big guns. No X-Files. No Trek. No Stargate. Maybe Outer Limits. Reason being that there is no shortage of content out there covering those shows. Earth 2 and Seaquest however…that opens possibilities.
Also out would be animation. Not that I don’t like animation, but I’m going for shows that have that warmth I mentioned.
I’m not sure if these would be daily videos, or just filler, but it should be fun.
