Welcome to December! I hope you are all looking forward to the Holiday season, as I have a couple of little ones under foot, I know my family is looking forward to it. I hope that we see a lot more of each other over the coming weeks so we can share in the season together.

Some things I’d like to make you aware of:
The Forums: These have been pretty quiet lately and we’d like to see them active again. I know Facebook has kind of taken the place of the Forums as of late, but the more we use the forums, the better we can do when people are searching for us. So make it a point to start a thread.

Classifieds: Make sure to check these out each month. The Department heads are hiring and are looking for talent. It doesn’t matter if you have a ton of experience or are a novice, if you want to get involved we will find a place for you.

Recruiting: I know you are asking yourself “How would I recruit for OTF?” and it’s really not hard. For instance, if you are going to be seeing the now Hobbit movie when it comes out, plug our Lord of the Rings Chat. If you are on another fan site make sure to throw a link up now and again. You never know how might be looking for something cool like OTF.

Now in this month’s issue, we’ll have our Facebook update, more Tastes from the Outpost Holiday Edition, the USS Maxwell Simming Update and more.?

Thanks for reading this month’s issue and Merry Christmas to those that celebrate. See you all in the New Year!

Blue Report on Facebook Recap

Article by Paulie

Picking up where the Facebook page for the Blue Report left off, a Star Wars parody of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” hit the internet in early November. This was followed by more Star Wars news, specifically the title for the next installment, due out in December 2015. It will be known as “The Force Awakens.”

The Marvel universe, or should I say multiverse, will explode all over the pages of your favorite comics in “Secret Wars”. Staying with Marvel, there are rumors that the impending Civil War arc of The Avengers storyline may be starting to play out on the small screen in “Agents Of SHIELD”. Speaking of, the series is now on Netflix. So if you’re interested, go watch! And if you need to catch up, now you can!

Matt Smith and Natalie Dormer will star together in “Patient Zero”, a film about a super strain of rabies reaching pandemic scale.

The future looks bright for the series Gotham, as Harvey Dent/Two Face was recently introduced. Entertainment Weekly also reported that a young version of The Joker will appear on the show, as will the parents of Richard “Dick” Grayson, also known as Robin, future sidekick to Batman.

The death of Glen A. Larson was reported on November 15. Larson was responsible for producing at least three sci-fi television series in the 1980’s – Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider and The Six Million Dollar Man.

To promote the seventh season Blu-Ray of Star Trek: The Next Generation, a gag reel hit the internet this month.

The Nerdist reports that a female writer will once again pen a Season 9 episode of Doctor Who. And staying with BBC America news for the moment, Season 3 of Orphan Black will bring new faces to that franchise, in Justin Chatwin, James Frain, Ksenia Solo and Kyra Harper.

Two trailers hit the internet recently. The first was for “Jurrasic World”, the fourth installment of that franchise, as did a trailer for the aforementioned “Star Wars, Episode 7: The Force Awakens.”

    Highlight of L.I. Who

    Article by Paulie

    On November 7th, I went to the 2nd annual L.I. Who, Long Island’s Doctor Who convention. I arrived early, checking in and meeting a couple friends who were gracious enough to help me with getting my bags to my room. Walking down the hall to the elevator, I crossed paths with Wendy Padbury, who starred on Doctor Who in the late 60’s as Zoe Heriot

    After settling into my room for a some time, I went back down to the lobby and found the end of the line to get my convention badge and passes for the Friday night dinner and Sunday morning breakfast, both having been opportunities to mingle up close and personal with the stars.

    Shortly after that, I got in line for the early autograph session with Eighth Doctor actor Paul McGann. It was then that I started to feel “at home” again, making friends with those in line around me, reacquainting myself briefly with someone I met last year, not to mention seeing former companion to the Sixth Doctor, Nicola Bryant walk by.

    After some time, I was allowed to jump to the head of the line, as I had made friends with enough of the convention staff so they knew me, and graciously accommodated my physical limitations. (For any of you reading this who don’t know me well, I’ve walk with crutches all my life.) The next thing I knew, I was face-to-face with Paul McGann. And for any of you who haven’t met him, he is a talker, and a lovely man.

    I made my way back to the lobby, took a seat, and in no time at all, I spotted yet another guest across the way. This time the man in question was Terrance Dicks, who wrote a few scripts, and oversaw the show as script editor in the early 70’s. I made my way over to him and shook his hand, introducing myself and telling him how the period that he worked on the show as script editor was my favorite era.

    Then it was time for the Dinner of Rassilon. Sitting across from me at my table was Dick Mills, who had a long standing association with the classic series in sound effects. After dinner, I reconnected with some friends from last year and went to the Karaoke of Rassilon. And then I went back to my room, but not to sleep – not immediately.

    I would feel it the next morning, walking into a panel on the similarities between Star Trek and Doctor Who, followed by a panel with the lovely Wendy Padbury and another actress from the 60s that she didn’t share screentime with – Deborah Watling. I got in the last question on that panel, asking Wendy to compare Matt Smith’s take on The Doctor – who she discovered – with the Doctor she spent time with in Patrick Troughton.

    Then I got in line for a photo with Wendy and Deborah, and Frazer Hines, who had been at last year’s L.I. Who, and I had gotten along famously with. Every time I saw that man this time, he would ask whomever I was chatting with if I was bothering them. What a kidder! I also spent some time getting autographs and in the vendors halls.

    After that, I didn’t do too much until the broadast of the 8th series finale of Doctor Who. And after that was the Dance Party of Rassilon, where some friends I made last year invaded the party as the clones from BBC America’s Orphan Black.

    Sunday morning, I got a picture taken with Dick Mills before breakfast, and with Nicola Bryant afterwards. She was the excited one when I asked for a picture with her. I paced myself the rest of the day, getting more autographs and merchandise, until it was time to get a picture with the Doctors in attendance, Colin Baker and Paul McGann.

    And then it was time to say goodbyes to friends I’d seen again, and others I’d made that weekend. I would leave in the morning, after spending some time chatting with Frazer Hines, Daphne Ashbrook, Wendy Padbury, Deborah Watling and Colin Spaull.

    L.I. Who 3 will be moving to a larger hotel in the Hyatt Regency, having quickly outgrown the Clarion from the last two years. The first of many guests announcements will be made in December. If any of you want to meet met there, and I would suggest this as a great weekend get away to any Whovian, - Allons-y!

    USS Maxwell Update

    Article by T'Pel Kestra

    Captain T'Pel Kestra here, just providing an update for the OTF Simming group. This group roleplays by way of a posting system, so after revisions, the whole of the mission gets posted for others viewing pleasure. Sort of like a fan fiction piece, just with Multiple authors. It has been a little slow moving, but the USS Maxwell does have life. If you doubt me, here is a link to one of our latest posts. I am sure there are others in the works as well.
