And here we are the last episode of Beam Me Up for 2013. I think, considering, that the program went well this year. But back to what goes on with this program.
I start with one of my favorite pieces of anime music. The Flame which is the opening music for Requiem for the Darkness.
Then Phil joins me as we honestly started to do Star Trek trivia but got off track as we found that many stars of Star Trek went on to star on Twilight Zone which I really have a soft spot for. The episode we got off track on was TWO which was I think episode 66 staring Elizabeth Montgomery and Charles Bronson as two soldiers from opposite sides of the conflict. One of my favs also. Then Terror at 20 thousand feet staring William Shatner which gave me nightmares for years. lol and we talk about some of the other episodes we enjoyed.
Then a new episode of the Dark Inspectre series…episode 23. Things are not looking good for inspector Jack Garrett.
I then review the Will and Cypher Smith in their latest movie After Earth.
From the blog, new evac units that is truly something out of Terminator!
And finally part one of A Wondrous Gift by Doug Turnbull.

So, here we are at BMU episode 391. After a short opening monologue I play Winter Day by John Anealio which I feel is one of his best tracks.
Last week I did not have enough time to play the last few minutes of Dean Giles’ Post Human Condition so, I right that wrong this week and take a few moments to make sure that every one get a chance to hear the who work because it really is so good.
Over in the beam Me Up blog, The Chang’e 3’s rover Jade Rabbit has separated from its lander.
Next I review David Scholes’s collection of 21 stories – Trathh and other Stories which is every bit as excellent as you can imagine!
Is it possible that Halley’s Comet could have caused death and destruction?
Neowise is the former NASA spacecraft Wise that has been repurposed. I talk about its new mission.
Have you heard of the Technological Singularity? In short it is when tech gets so advanced it rivals or surpasses human inteligence…
My final story of the day is Matt London’s The Show Must…
Finally I fill out the hour with a Christman favorite played by Kenny G.
That covers this week, I hope you enjoy it. See you next week.

wow, what a funky feeling today…but I stivered through, and all said and done, I think 389, after some work, came out ok. This week, after some observations, I play one of my fave tongue in cheek song – Game On: The Guild.
Next is a return to Games. This time I corrected for on air distortion that I didn’t know was there, so for those of you that mentioned the crackling, here is a clean copy.
Next on the blog the Chinese launch a moon mission! Evolution may have been kickstarted by interspecies breeding! Solar power from the moon? Could happen…..
Aaaaaaaaand we next go for another installation of the Post Human Condition. Now I know, I keep calling it part three….duh, but this is the second installation of Dean Giles fantastic story.

This week is episode 388 and I think this will be as equally entertaining which is either a good thing or not….. after this brief, I open with Help! by ayana taketatsu which opens each episode of the anime series MM group. Then I keep finding really good Star Trek trivia!
The first story of the evening is part two of Games by K. Maclean.
This week from the BMU blog I start with a look at the new comic titled Letter 44 which the publishers will let you read the complete first. Next Kallamus is back! He covers Dr. Who, among other great subjects. I read about a planetary system that is almost the clone of our Solar System. 12 things you may not know about comet Ison.
And finally The Post Human Condition pt1 Dean Giles
And that is Beam Me Up in a nutshell for this week. I hope you enjoy it.
