A new editor and graphics staff have meant a “new look” and a “new feel” for Voyages, the eMagazine of The Federation Star Trek fan club.
The revamped Voyages is now “focus[ed] on the fans,” said Editor Kelly Rowles. “You see more photos of fans in action at conventions, doing public service and much more.”
In addition to reports about conventions, such as the 2010 Creation Entertainment Las Vegas Star Trek Convention and the official East Coast Star Trek Convention in New Jersey, there is a report on Star Trek: The Exhibition in California, and for Star Trek: Voyager fans, an interview with Manu Intiraymi (Icheb) on what it was like to play the Borg teenager.
Intiraymi shared his thoughts about acting on Star Trek, including how he felt about his Borg costume. “I was super excited, except for the leg,” he said. “I even made a big stink about the costume because they cut out my entire left leg. At the time, I was twenty-one and skinny and white, and I had this super cool robot Borg costume on, except for my really ridiculous skinny white leg sticking out. I just thought it was lame.”
Complaints to Brannon Braga and Rick Berman proved to be fruitless, so Intiraymi asked for a compromise, which was granted. “I begged them to let me wear pantyhose, which is not the most macho thing in the world, but at least it would hide a little somethin’. So, they let me wear panty hose under the costume with a couple of implants on; I was a little more excited about struttin’ around in that thing.”
