  • 'Men Cry Bullets', the independent feature film debut of Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com, prior to its release on the 12th of December. More information on the film can be found on this page at the Official Jeri Lynn Homepage.

  • On Wednesday the 6th of September, the Home Theater Forum will be organising a live chat with Martin Blythe, Michael Arkin and Jeff Radoycis, all three representatives of Paramount Home Video. The chat starts at 8:00pm Eastern Time, but information on how to participate can already be found here. Thanks go out to Lysette van Erp for this!

  • Paul Russell at the DVD Angle has put up an interview with Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher), talking mostly about his old film 'Stand By Me', which was recently released on a new special DVD edition.

  • This Tuesday, Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax) and the rest of the cast of the 'Becker' series appeared on 'Donny and Marie'. Thanks go out to BORG, who in fact sent this in on Monday, so the lateness in reporting this is entirely my fault.

  • And in other really late news, the official Star Trek fan club has announced they'll be selling a special 24" limited edition litograph of Seven of Nine. The litho will be available in just 500 copies, some of them signed by Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine). Thanks go out to Gustavo Leao for this!
