Welcome to Captain's Log -- your (semi) daily round-up of sci-fi randomness from around the web. Here's what's happening:

Hello, Mal! Firefly might be long gone, but SciFiWire noticed that next week's Castle has Nathan Fillion dressed in a verrry familiar outfit and referencing a certain vampire slayer.

A new Spanish post-apocalyptic short film called Waiting Room will screen before The Road at the Stockholm Film Fest. See a trailer for the 13-minute film over at Quiet Earth.

In Canada, they give out little awards called Geminis, and Variety reports that during the first round of award giving, Stargate Atlantis grabbed wins for Dramatic Series Writing and Make-Up.

Fringe is getting a new villain, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sebastian Roche (CW's The Beautiful Life) will play a soldier from another dimension, replacing Thomas Kretschmann who had a scheduling conflict. Added bonus: Trent Reznor is getting in on the musical action.

MTV recently talked with David Duchovny, and he thinks yet another X-Files flick could happen.

Get ready for more Vampire Diaries. Variety reports that CW has ordered a full season of the show based on L.J. Smith's YA series.
