It’s Monday and that means another week filled with geek. This week most of the hype seems to have something to do with space except for the new season of Unbreakable. I accepted a challenge to join the Train Like a Martian event with The Mars Generation to promote STEM and space exploration among youth too! Check it out if you’re interested because you don’t have to raise any money to enter and you too could win some neat prizes while showing support for kids interested in space. If you do donate to the cause, you can also receive some nice gifts. So don’t fall asleep on your chance to support some space dreams! Now grab yourself some coffee because it’s time for another Weekly Hype.
If you went to your comic book shop for Free Comic Book Day and are a Star Trek fan, you might have heard the introduction of TNG’s mirror universe was just introduced. Well, now you can get the first issue of the IDW comic book series. Star Trek: TNG: Mirror Broken #1 will be available this week. Get your copy at Amazon or your comic book shop on Wednesday, May 17th. Who doesn’t want to see a badass Picard with an alternate personality and story? I wonder if the mirror universe Picard still drinks Earl Grey? Make yourself some Earl Grey tea and read your copy this week!
Another fascinating read will be ready tomorrow for space enthusiasts with some history of Apollo 8. Apollo 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon written by Jeffrey Kluger will be available Tuesday, May 16th on Amazon and other booksellers. Grab this book tomorrow and find out about the men who took a mission that seemed impossible and learn more about the history this week. It should be an interesting read for space enthusiasts and those curious about the history of the time.
This week it’s time to let Kimmy and Titus brighten your day with some laughs! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 will be ready to watch on Netflix Friday, May 19th. If you haven’t watched this show at all, I’m not sure what you’ve been waiting for because this cast is F-U-N-N-Y. Seriously, how can Titus not make you laugh? Go watch the trailer for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 and be ready for hilarity and cheesy 90’s references this Friday on Netflix.
Yay, it’s time for another Alien movie! Alien: Covenant will be out in theaters May 19th, Friday. I know some people are a little hesitant about this one after Prometheus but I am still looking forward to it. Do you think Alien: Covenant will be better than Prometheus? I can’t wait to find out when comes to theaters. Go watch the trailer and see the movie this Friday.
Endless Space 2 is out on PC this week. It’s a turn-based strategy game where the player leads a civilization to interstellar space. With all the recent talk about colonizing Mars and space exploration, this game might just fit the bill to play out some of those ideas this week. If you’re into strategy games and space, this might be an interesting game for your precious play time. Endless Space 2 releases Friday, May 19th. Check out the game on Steam and play it on Friday.
That’s the Weekly Hype for your dreary Monday. If anyone follows me on Twitter you might see tweets encouraging you to join or donate to The Mars Generation event, Train Like a Martian this week. You can win some fun prizes. Next week there will be challenges and you will be asked to post pictures and photos of you taking part in the Train Like a Martian activities for a chance to win prizes. I hope you will join me with The Mars Generation and show your support for youth interested in STEM and space exploration. This should be a fun week with lots of geekiness to get hyped about.
