Lost Star Trek: TNG Season 2 Premiere Pitch - With Spock!

Star TrekReturn to ForeverVia @TrekDocs: Today we're posting a four-page outline for "Return to Forever" by Tracy Torme (writer of season one's "The Big Goodbye" and creator of Sliders). Originally a two-parter that would bring back the Guardian and Spock. Double Spock! August 25, 1988. Spock from the old series travels to the era of Picard's time, chaos ensues. Pretty amazing stuff.

I'm surprised they didn't hold it for Spocktober.

Transformers Cyberverse Episode 3 on YouTube

TransformersIn a move very much of the present, rather than deal with strange scheduling or pre-empted entertainment Hasbro has given its latest to YouTube. You can watch Allspark right now.

Windblade, screaming, and Optimus Prime await you. Also Grimlock without a face mask, which is unsettling. Also Soundwave sounds like a Borg collective on Voyager.

Nintendo Switch Downloads This Week

Nintendo SwitchACA NEOGEO NINJA COMMANDO This week's batch of titles on the eShop: ACA NEOGEO NINJA COMMANDO, Wasteland 2: Director's Cut, Danger Mouse: The Danger Games, Defunct, Doughlings: Arcade, Monkey King: Master of the Clouds, and The Mahjong Huntress. And many, many more.

At retail: Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna - The Golden Country, Scribblenauts Mega Pack, and Labyrinth Of Refrain: Coven Of Dusk.

These are hardly the most exciting announcements of the day, as a new Nintendo Direct showcased things like NES JoyCons for your Switch, a third Luigi's Mansion game, several PlayStation-era Final Fantasy ports, and other things that make me happy to have a Switch on my desk. It's right under the monitor on which I'm typing this paragraph right now.

Conan Pilot on YouTube, All Episodes Coming Next Year

TVIn a move sure to please fans of The Brown Dandy, Space Whore, and various Bollywood productions, it was announced that Conan will be putting his entire run of episodes online by this time next year. That's a lot of episodes, and a lot of things that were quoted at you out of context that you can now see. Isn't that right, Cactus Chef playing Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire"?

The very first episode is up for watching now, and the future looks bright provided legal entanglements don't cause the archive's fate to be held up in front of the Potato Judge.

Review: BanDai Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog The Drageen Action Figure

Figure of the DayBanDai Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog The Drageen Action FigureSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

20 years old! The BanDai Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog The Drageen Action Figure was something I found at Kay-Bee back in the day, when action figure lines were plentiful and closeouts were cheap. We don't get as many experimental lines today, so a Sentai show made in/for Europe based on Irish folklore is certainly a notable historical footnote. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

Transformers: Cyberverse Episodes 1, 2 on YouTube

TransformersVia Hasbro's YouTube channel, it's the first two episodes of Transformers: Cyberverse. This new show has Bumblebee relearning Cybertronian from Windblade, after the yellow Autobot loses his memory somehow. The storyline seems to be a pastiche of recent series through a G1-influenced filter, and we saw some clips of Bumblebee watching the rise of Megatron at Comic-Con. The Bolder Media show is notable in that the entirety of voice talent seems to be people you've never heard of before.

Windblade and Bumblebee fight Decepticon jets, which are indeed called seekers on-screen.
