Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Saturday Morning Confusion! How do you stop a lone wolf?

Dear Readers:

More and more facts are coming out about that terrorist / crazy guy who tried to blow stuff up here in London, and it has got me awfully confused about how we treat these people.

Here is a guy who advertises on the Internet that he is all for "Jihad," and that he sympathizes with ISIS, and he hates Canada, and blah, blah, blah, blah!

Instead of being slapped with a"peace bond" why wasn't this asshole slapped in jail? (And then slapped around some more!)

Ya can't be too nice to these people, folks!

Well, it turns out these were the real targets of would be terrorist Aaron Driver, who in the words of one witness said: "I just can't take them anymore!"

A new Star Wars movie is coming out in December kids:

Star Wars fans got a fresh tease of the franchise's upcoming Rogue One film with a new trailer showing the return of ultimate villain Darth Vader.
Disney's first spin-off from the Star Wars universe is set for release in December and follows a group of rebels "on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction", according to starwars.com.

Meanwhile:

The start of production on the new Star Trek TV series is a month away and the debut date isn't until next January, but the effort to build fan interest is already in motion — if not at warp speed.
Following up a Comic-Con panel in July about Star Trek: Discovery, executive producer Bryan Fuller shared details about the 13-episode series' setting, characters and innovations at a Television Critics Association meeting Wednesday.
"We want to arc out the information so you'll get a little information today, you'll get a little more information in October, and we'll keep building the evolution of the 'reveal' as we go," said Fuller, who was a writer on the series Star Trek: Voyager.
His disclosures included that the main character is female (human, yes; a captain, no); that the story will feature a gay character, and that there will be more aliens. Given that previous Star Trek series were all from the captain's point of view, giving the woman different duties will allow for a new dynamic in both relationships and storytelling, Fuller said. He didn't specify her title.
Casting for the series set aboard the U.S.S. Discovery has yet to be announced.
Here are tidbits Fuller shared about the show that will debut its first episode on CBS before it moves to its permanent home, online video service CBS All Access:
  • The series will incorporate an event in Star Trek lore that's been talked about but not explored, one which will allow for a serialized story that takes its protagonist on a journey of self-discovery. The event? Fuller wouldn't say.
  • There will "absolutely" be a gay character, he said. "I still have in my garage the hate mail that Star Trek: Voyager got because of a rumour that Jeri Ryan's character (named Seven of Nine) was going to be gay," he said. He resolved that if he ever did another Star Trek series it would introduce someone who is gay.
  • There will be robots.
  • The aliens will be new and improved, and probably in greater numbers than typical for Star Trek. "You usually have one person with a bumpy forehead and seven other people who look relatively normal," Fuller said. The series will feature both newbies and the reimagining of familiar aliens — although Fuller acknowledged some Trekkies resist change.
  • The series takes place in an era that bridges the original 1960s Star Trek and Star Trek: Enterprise, the 2001-05 series set about a century before. But Discovery will be much closer in time to Capt. James T. Kirk's world, so it will be able to play with the design "iconography" of those spaceships and uniforms, Fuller said.
  • Some potential elements include the introduction of young versions of familiar characters like Dr. McCoy, but not in season one, and perhaps the inclusion of Amanda Grayson, Spock's mother (played variously by Jane Wyatt, Winona Ryder and Cynthia Blaise on the big screen)
Casting for the series set aboard the U.S.S. Discovery has yet to be announced.
