Virtuality Review

Virtuality is the television movie made by Ronald D. Moore and Michael Taylor, which aired on Fox last Friday. This movie is about the crew of the Phaeton, which is on a crucial mission to do something or other around some far away star. Virtuality joins their story as they reach their go/no go point - the point where the commander of the Phaeton must decide whether to go ahead with a ten year mission, or to turn around and go back to Earth. However, this is not a straight up all-or-nothing mission - the crew  is also being filmed, and their journey being broadcast on Earth as a reality tv show, entitled The Edge of Never. Virtual realities - or virt mods, or modules - are available to all of the members of the mission, and these modules allow them to escape the confines of the ship into their own fantasy. Originally intended to be a television series, it was squashed into an 87 minute movie.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Collegiate Geek livejournal community. The purpose of this community is to cover all things geeky in college, mainly because I'm an undergrad who would love to share the geeky love.

I'll try to post something every day (yeah, we'll see how that goes) with something to do with science fiction or fantasy or fandom, and what they look like in college. There will be reviews of different programs occasionally (I'm working on one for Virtuality right now) and a podcast should be up in a few days.

Briefly, about me: I'm a long time science fiction and fantasy fan, with a particular love of Doctor Who, Fringe, Batman, and all things Joss Whedon. The first science fiction book I read was Enders Game (by Orson Scott Card) when I was eleven, and I haven't looked back since.

Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see here. If you would like to contact me, please email me at nausicaa at mail dot org.
