I am a Sailor Moon fan from way back when this series aired on Cartoon Network. I have collected all of the officially released versions of the series including the DiC dub VHS and DVD version, to the Pioneer DVDs and finally to the ADV subtitled DVD sets.
However, I was not able to view or buy, through any of these offical versions, Sailor Moon Sailor Stars. The only version available in the USA was a bootleg, like this one pictured below, which included poor picture quality and poorly translated subtitles.
Thanks to VIZ Media, Sailor Moon Sailor Stars has FINALLY been officially released here in the United States, legally and available for me to watch anytime and anywhere! This makes me a very, very happy Sailor Moon Fangirl!
These never before officially released episodes started streaming on Hulu and Neon Alley December 14th with what is considered to be the ending of the Dream Arc, which shows how Sailor Moon transformed into her true form, Eternal Sailor Moon.
However, this week starts the arc that many fans thought would never come, the arrival of the Sailor Star Lights and the official start of season 5 of Sailor Moon!
I am so looking forward to watching two episodes of these every week and of course will be waiting for the Dub version and the BluRay/DVD release as well.
Are you a fan of Sailor Moon? Have you been looking forward to the official release of Sailor Moon Sailor Stars as I have?
When Sojourn entered the ship as an ensign he was one day old.
Good thing Captain Longfellow requested he be aged to twenty since a ship was not place for a baby. Otherwise, his obnoxious crew mates would have tossed him in the recycling unit the first time he cried out in hunger.
Born with the thoughts of Blue, the King of Terranue, and his three parents, Sojourn knew without a doubt he was born to do something fabulous.
Normally an ensign is promoted or dumped after six months. An Outbound ship has no room for a slacker. Initially Sojourn expected to be promoted within a month. Every time the captain called him to the brig, he expected a promotion. However, thus far, each time he’d received a scolding and brig time.
Sojourn is certain the reason he can’t get promoted is because Captain Longfellow knows Sojourn is only a year old, and thus treats him like an overly tall baby.
When he breaks through the Ensign Barrier, his speed to captain is horrifically fast. Horrific because ensigns aren’t taught a thing about being a captain. In a single day he was promoted from ensign to acting lieutenant then to captain.
But his trials, tribulations and grand teamwork, not to mention an advantageous marriage, are just what we needed to kick off the new Series called IN SEARCH OF SENTIENTS. Sojourn and his fabulous crew of aliens, spirits, and humans will go forth to discover new forms of sentient life and bring them into the folds of the Council of the Universes.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the sentients they will find. Here are some possible covers and the key aliens involved. I would love to know which books you would like to read first, so rank which of these should be book #1.
The Planet Will
If you recall in book 3 of the Multiverses, Captain Longfellow shared a story in which Drogan warned him the planet they intended to land upon was actually a sentient being. While the planet didn’t mind people stopping to pick his vegetables and fruits, he did not like being hurt. Thus, they landed on a rock, did not take weapons while gathering food, and left quickly when one idiot crewman tried to cut a giant diamond out of the ground with a pen laser. The ground literally opened up and swallowed him.
Well, since the captain left, someone placed a satellite beacon in the planet’s atmosphere with a high risk warning, which has stopped everyone from visiting the planet. The poor planet has been starving ever since. When Sojourn arrives to stock up on fruits and vegetables that won’t make anyone sick, he ignores the warning and sets down on the large rock. The place is no longer the Garden of Eden Drogan had described. Everything is dying. The planet needs meat, but it has to be from something evil. The planet Will refuses to eat nice people. Drogan believes this is a job the Gods can handle and thankfully, he might be able to contact one of them.
Drogan is vital for the path of light and that is his top priority, but he mentally and physically longs for someone to love as well. Now that Captain Sojourn has a huge ship capable of quantum leaps previously thought to be impossible, their search for sentients will be much faster and easier. First Science officer Drogan led the team designing the ship’s new quantum mechanics, and they are beyond state of the art!
One of his crew is a brilliant young woman, beautiful both inside and out. Only Drogan doesn’t think he has a chance to win her heart, given he’s blue, with gills and webbed hands, so he tries his best to keep his distance.
Destiny is smart, but it’s nothing to how smart Drogan is. In all ways he is the greatest sentient she had ever known. She has no idea if they are compatible species, sexually speaking, but she secretly loves everything about Drogan and would be most willing to give it a go, only he doesn’t seemed interested in her as a female. She has no clue how to let him know of her interest without taking a big risk that doing so will get herself sent home from the finest ship ever built. Dare she risk everything for a chance for something that may not even be possible?
Camo lives on a reptilian world of extreme violence. Her father plans to give her to the strongest and deadliest of his warriors. Not willing to be Vitor’s twelfth wife in five years, she escapes and hides in the jungle. She knows they will search for her, but no one is better at disappearing than her. When a ship arrives, naturally, the warriors accuse the sickly white creatures of stealing her. Upon meeting some of the sentients, and discovering them to be brave and honorable, she asks for asylum on their ship. However, the captain has other plans for Camo. He needs her to step up and become Empress of the planet. The current violent leaders will not do.
The Gods approve the change and will move all the truly evil sentients to the planet Will if she will step up and lead her people to the Path of Light. But no female has ever been leader before. Who will even accept her claim as Empress?
So pick your choice!

If you have never attended a Star Wars Celebration before, then you need to be aware that there is indeed limited seating. Also, based on the last Celebration with a premiere, the lines start several hours before the events. I would recommend that you pack your patience and get in line early if you are planning on attending the Star Wars Rebels premiere or any of these other related events. However, if you have the time and patience to wait and you are a Star Wars Rebels fan, then it looks like Saturday, April 18th will be a great day to attend Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.
