Stargate Atlantis
A Retelling Set in Space

Second Star by J.M. Sullivan is a Peter Pan retelling set in space. First on a spaceship and later on a planet. I did not end up loving this one though. Not at all to be honest.

  1. Hallo, Hallo Annemieke,

    I’ve started to visit with everyone this weekend now that I have some posts of my own under my belt and my first TBR Spine Poetry for #SciFiMonth!! πŸ™‚ (big smiles) Of all the books you’ve listed I have Defy the Stars on my TBR as well as featured it in my poem – I haven’t had the chance yet to listen to it but its good to know its a multi-galaxy journey as I love those Soft and Hard SciFi stories which take you on the ‘journey’ through space – which is why The Clan Chronicles would be the response I would give for that prompt!

    You’ve given me a good think about if I can do this post or not… I’ll see if I can sort it out closer to the end of the month after I’ve read most of my stories for Sci Fi November and then piece together which of those fit the prompts and which of the stories I’ve read for prior Sci Fi Month’s would also fit… lovely idea!!

    I’m a Trek girl from wayy back – so the whole Gene Roddenberry universe is my jam! I purposely and decidedly boycotted the ‘other’ bloke who took it over; #justNO. So I definitely can relate to Star Trek (TOS) being given as a prime example of wicked good sci fi on tv! I truly loved watching TOS, TNG, DS9 & Voyager – missed Enterprise completely but aspire to first get a renewal for CBS All Access to stream the series and eventually *knock on wood* purchase ALL of them on dvd seasonals. I still remember going to see my first Trek film (The Undiscovered Country) in movie theaters!! That was a SERIOUSLY big honour for me!! πŸ™‚ I grew up with a fondness for this series via my Dad and my Mum. Dad used to tape the show to see after work — such good memories!

    The *original!* Battlestar Gallactica is my favourite — gosh, I’d love to get that on seasonal dvd as well! I don’t have any other reference points for the rest of the series as I avoided them – except for Stargate it was a scheduling conflict at the time – you know when you couldn’t see them #ondemand and had to see them first running on cable? lol Aging myself here.

    Can we switch out the tv series but keep the prompts? If we loved series that fit that category but are ones we can identify with better? That was the one question I had?!

    Overall, I can’t wait to pull this together and will give you full credit – (who wouldn’t?) and tag/tweet you after it goes live — expect this towards the 25th!?

    1. Defy the Stars was a lot of fun and its sequel takes it a little further. I still need to read the third book though.

      I made the prompts mysefl and then was like, yikes, can I even answer them haha. And yes you can switch out the tv series if that works better for you.

      I think my first real intro to start trek was the next generation. Then Voyager and later Saturdays were sci-fi shows for a while so they showed stargate, battle star and then Enterprise. I watched the first season but could never really get into it.

  2. Omg omg I MUST DO THIS because you have listed two of my ALL TIME favorite shows (The 100 obv, and 12 Monkeys!) and yep I love me some sci-fi, I am going to have to check out the others too! Also can I just say that your graphics are ADORABLE? Loveee. So I told you my faves (they are definitely #1 and 2) but let’s see… I love The Expanse! Travelers was AWESOME why was it canceled?! Ditto The Passage- I loved it almost as much as 12 Monkeys and I am just so SAD. OOH Dark! I love Dark! Well I should stop because I could be here all day hah LOVE this tag!

    1. Yeay do it! And thank you!
      I really want to watch The Expanse but I think I’ll try the books first since I have the first one. And yes I really liked The Passage show, much better than the book to be honest so I was sad it was cancelled.

  3. Phew, ik ben blij dat je me hier niet voor getagged hebt want dan had ik serieus moeten gaan nadenken om je vragen te kunnen beantwoorden. De laatste vraag is dan weer geen probleem. Ik heb geen enkele van de series volledig gezien maar wel een deel van Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, Battlestar Galactica, The 4400 en Fringe. Vroeger keek ik immers veel vaker series als nu.

  4. Thanks for the tag! 😊

    I have watched Stargate SG-1, Star Trek, Defiance, Fallen Skies (which I still need to finish), Fringe, and Battlestar Galactica (both the old and the new, and the prequel series -which I was super mad that they cancelled). πŸš€

    1. You are welcome πŸ˜‰

      We still need to finish Defiance. I still want to watch the prequel Caprica but when it got cancelled I kind of lost motivation at the time.
