New Release: ‘The Hall of Heroes’ by John Jackson Miller

The Hall of Heroes by John Jackson Miller is out today in paperback and wraps up the Star Trek: Prey trilogy. You can also pick up an autographed copy via John’s official shop.

Continuing the milestone 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek—an epic new trilogy that stretches from the events of The Original Series movie The Search for Spock to The Next Generation!

The Klingon Empire stands on the precipice. In the wake of violence from the cult known as the Unsung, paranoia threatens to break Chancellor Martok’s regime. Klingons increasingly call for a stronger hand to take control…one that Lord Korgh, master manipulator, is only too willing to offer.

But other forces are now in motion. Assisted by a wily agent, the Empire’s enemies secretly conspire to take full advantage of the situation. Aboard the USS Titan, Admiral William T. Riker realizes far more than the Federation’s alliance with the Klingons is in danger. With the Empire a wounded animal, it could either become an attacker—or a target.

Yet even as hostilities increase, Commander Worf returns to the USS Enterprise and Captain Jean-Luc Picard with a daring plan of his own. The preservation of both the Empire and the Federation alliance may hinge on an improbable savior leading a most unlikely force….

Movie Review: ‘Hacksaw Ridge’

November 27, 2016 at 3:44 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

To put it simply, Hacksaw Ridge is an outstanding film. Without question, it is on par with Saving Private Ryan. The movie tells the tale of a conscientious objector who refuses to carry a rifle but is determined to serve his country. From boot camp to the battlefield, it shows the rigors Desmond Doss went through and his amazing acts of courage. It’s a film that is touching as it not only shows the chaos and brutality of war, but the heroism and selflessness that can go with it.

While Hacksaw Ridge is a great movie, it is very different from Saving Private Ryan. First off, this movie focuses on only one battle, and it’s in the Pacific theater. It also differs in that the movie sets the stage before the war, showing Desmond as a child and then later on showing how he winds up in the military and his struggles through boot camp as a conscientious objector. Viewers get to see him fall in love, deal with his father, his faith and the horrors of war. The scope of the film provides a very nicely focused tale that encapsulates Desmond’s journey from child to war hero. Yet the real accomplishment is how the movie brings that tale to life.
