First off, I have to repost the MST3k Kickstarter.
Lots more information including the first host and first Mad Scientist.
Yup. That is Felicia Day as the new Mad. I was not a fan of her's originally, but after seeing her in Supernatural I have come around.
In game-realted news.
Marc Miller of Traveller fame has a Kickstarter for his Traveller novel, Agent of the Imperium.
I would have sucked this up back in the day. I hope it is a great success for him!
