That’s right, there’s a competitive lightsaber training academy that actually exists. And while this sci-fi hobby was previously only available in this form overseas in Europe, one of these academies is finally coming to the United States.

With this year’s election just 25 days away, we’re reminded that President Barack Obama only has a few more months left in office. Regardless of how you feel about his politics, I think we can all agree that President Obama is one of the nerdiest Commanders in Chief that we’ve had, and that’s been rather refreshing.
In case you need any more proof of just how much of a geek President Obama really is, he took the time to act as guest editor for WIRED magazine, where he put together a little list of his essential sci-fi movies and television shows. Some of them he grew up with, while others are more recent and provide thought-provoking and inspirational stories. Check out the list of President Obama’s essential sci-fi movies and TV shows after the jump. Read More »

Just yesterday, we called your attention to a Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer for the new expansion pack Knights of the Eternal Throne. It’s an awesome cinematic trailer that shows the potential for Star Wars movies that can exist without having direct ties to any of the characters, events and locations that we’re more familiar with from the primary Star Wars saga films. It turns out some other fans agree, but they want to see these stories play out in a different medium.
A new petition from Change.org (where all the most important issues are championed) has a group of Star Wars fans asking that Disney and Lucasfilm turn Star Wars: The Old Republic into a TV series on Netflix. Find out more below. Read More »
