UKScifi has been around since September 1991 in one form or another. We used to be a team of people who were / still are passionate about Scifi / Fantasy on TV, Books and Video games.
Now it's just me. X-Seti.
I will admit I do not have the time I once had for this site as I have ME/CFS and life is getting a little bit harder each day and more so over the winter period. I also run another project thats completely set aside from this site where I teach people how to computer 3D model and make their own video game maps and show how game engines work.
I am looking for people who can write stories, news articles and help administrate the servers such as the portal, Web and IRC. I have closed the old style mid 90's BBS server boards powered by the Commodore Amiga as the demand for old tech has declined.
I would like to see a revival in Scifi on TV as this can inspire people to think out out of the box as it did me when I studied my computer science. I would never have had the interest if it wasn't for Star Trek The Next Generation and Stargate.
I would like to update the existing servers and services and I am looking for people with ideas on how to best do this so UKScifi can make a come back and survive on the web for another 10 maybe 20 years.
I have never made a profit from this site and maybe never will as it has always been a non-profit community group, but we all live in different and more expensive times where server costs are a lot higher then 10 years ago. I am looking for a way for this site to be able to pay it's own way.
Hello, Just Looking around the web today at what little Scifi offerings exist on TV nowdays, There has been a lack of anything of interest for this site for ages. Today I came across S.O.S.
Quote; What is SOS? The Space Opera Society.
S.O.S. is a not-for-profit independent production facility that brings together writers, special effects wizards, and other creative talent from some of the most recognizable and respected Science Fiction franchises, including Stargate, Space:1999, Battlestar Galactica (2005), and Star Trek.

MGM and Warner Bros. announced they are teaming with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin to create a re-imagined trilogy based on the sci-fi hit Stargate, one of the biggest titles in the MGM library. Emmerich, who directed and co-wrote the original film with Devlin, is on board to direct this one, with Devlin producing. Those two are already hard at work on a new version of Independence Day at Fox.
MGM’s Gary Barber called Emmerich and Devlin “world-class creators of the original Stargate,” and said they will “bring their reinvigorated vision of this wildly popular property to audiences of multiple generations.”
Emmerich and Devlin: “The Stargate universe is one that we missed terribly, and we cannot wait to get going on imagining new adventures and situations for the trilogy. This story is very close to our hearts, and getting the chance to revisit this world is in many ways like a long lost child that has found its way back home.” MGM’s Jonathan Glickman will oversee it with Warner Bros’ Greg Silverman. Warners will distribute with MGM handling some international territories. Back in its day, Stargate set the record for highest October gross and did near $200 million in global ticket sales. It went on to have a very successful run as a syndicated TV series.

NBC's sci-fi series Heroes is being revived as a 13-episode limited series, with creator Tim Kring back at the helm but a new cast of characters and a self-contained storyline that's "shrouded in secrecy."
The series, which aired from 2006-2010, will return in 2015 as Heroes Reborn, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke announced Saturday, adding that some former cast members might "pop" back in for cameos. The characters and plots will be introduced in a digital series that will precede the TV premiere.
Heroes was a big hit in its first season, averaging 14.5 million viewers, but ratings declined sharply afterward as some fans began to sour on its heavily serialized story about a group of people with superpowers.
Kring went on to create Touch, a Fox drama that marked star Kiefer Sutherland's return about two years after 24 ended. But the show faded quickly and was canceled after two seasons. Heroes Reborn joins 24: Live Another Day, due in May, as the latest canceled series to get a limited-run revival.
in a statement, Salke said: "The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. Shows with that kind of resonance don't come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We're thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won't rule out the possibility of some of the show's original cast members popping back in."
Coleman, who played former company agent Noah Bennett on the 2006 series, has signed on to reprise the role. Showrunner Tim Kring is also set to return for the 13-episode series, which will premiere in 2015.
Many of the original stars including Zachary Quinto and Milo Ventimiglia are also rumoured to be returning, though no official announcements have been made.
An online prequel leading up to the television broadcast has also been announced by NBC.
April 29, 2014, FOX announced today that they will not be renewing Almost Human.
'Sarah Conner'. 'Firefly.' 'Alcatraz.' 'Terra Nova.' 'Dollhouse.' 'Dark Angel.' These are but a few of the FOX sci-fi and fantasy series to be canceled before their time. Over its more than a quarter-century of existence, the network has steadily built up a reputation as the place that genre shows go to die. Sadly, one more name has now been added to that list.
Created by former 'Fringe' showrunner J.H. Wyman, 'Almost Human' starred Karl Urban as Detective John Kennex, who blames an android (known as "synthetics" in this universe) for the death of his partner and the loss of his leg. Recently out of a coma, Kennex is eager to get back on the force, but finds himself forced into a reluctant partnership with Dorian (Michael Ealy), a synthetic who possesses a free spirit and wit unlike his cybernetic brethren. Together, they fight crime. No seriously, they do.
Thankfully, unlike some of the other sudden cancellations in FOX's history, 'Almost Human' didn't end its 13-episode season on any major cliffhanger. Still, there were several smaller plot threads left open, that fans will no doubt continue to speculate about long after 'Almost Human' fades into TV obscurity.
Doctor Who Extended 50th anniversary episode trailer
Doctor Who Extended 50th anniversary episode trailer
An extended trailer for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special has aired which stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman all appear in the new promo for 'The Day of the Doctor'.
The BBC unveiled the first clip from Doctor Who's 50th special on Friday (November 8th) and a shorter 40-second clip earlier yesterday (November 9th) shown above.
The 75-minute instalment which will be shown on (BBC One at 7.50pm on Saturday, November 23rd) featuring classic Who monsters the Daleks and the Zygons - will be simulcast globally and screened in cinemas worldwide.
I try not to post negative comments as I leave this up to those who read the posts on this site.
I never like how Who changed gears from David Tennant so the show could relate to a younger audience with Matt Smith but now with Peter Capaldi on board things are going to heat up and hopefully move in the right direction.

Doctor Who star Matt Smith is to leave his role as the Doctor at the end of this year, the BBC has announced.
Smith first stepped into the Tardis as the 11th Doctor in 2010. Taking over from David Tennant, he was the youngest actor to play the role. After four years as the Time Lord on the BBC One show, viewers will see Smith's Doctor regenerate in the 2013 Christmas special. The 30-year-old actor said working on the show had been "the most brilliant experience".
Doctor Who marks its 50th anniversary in November with a special episode, which Smith has already filmed. The BBC said Smith's "spectacular exit" was yet to be revealed and would be "kept tightly under wraps".
