There are a few sci-fi romance related posts in the mix. For example, whose follicle-challenged scalp do you find sexier—that of Captain Jean Luc Picard from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION or Assistant Director Skinner from THE X-FILES? Cast your vote in Choice #5: To Baldly Go…
And speaking of THE X-FILES, Sophie Brown explores the dynamics of Mulder and Scully’s (non) physical relationship in No Sex, Please, We’re Mulder & Scully:
Almost anyone who watched the show knows that Mulder & Scully clearly fell in love very early on in its history, even if they didn’t realise it. Even by the beginning of season two Mulder is barely able to function without the stabilising effect of his partner, as we see through his almost complete breakdown when she is abducted for several weeks. By the time the show came to an end in 2002, the pair were as deeply entwined in each other’s lives as any long-married couple. However despite whatever affection they may have felt, practically nothing ever transferred itself to outward displays whether in public or in sight of the viewers. This is the show that made its fans wait until season seven for the chastest of midnight kisses on Millennium Eve.Also, GeekMom contributor Corrina Lawson generously invited me for an interview, which she ran with her review of my erotic sci-fi romance, ONCE UPON A TIME IN SPACE.
