Hello World!

Thanks to everyone for trying to cheer me up with lots of Voyager fan fiction recommendations. I really appreciated your notes. Still reading hard, and this is a selection of thank you's and what I'm reading now:

  • To Liz Barr for her two wonderful new masterpieces, getting my best friend through Latin class, and the notification that her Work In Progress Kashyk-starring masterpiece now has a title. Woohoo!

  • To PJ in NH for trying to convert me to P/T fic. Sorry, not enough Janeway for me, but her site has plenty for those who enjoy the Paris/Torres dynamic.

  • Thanks to Gloria for the heads up that GL Dartt is working on a new series over at the Captain's Quarters.

    To Andra Marie Mueller for letting me indulge my sugary sweet JetC side, that I will of course, deny exists.

  • Many thanks to Monkee for the highly entertaining 'Endgame' review and the conversation.
  • What am I reading now? I currently have one of Kerry's 'Fractured Voyager Fairy Tales' open in the other browser window, that's causing me to giggle insanely. 'Captinella' indeed. *snigger*

    And on a completely unrelated note, does anyone know how to forge Damascus weapons in Playstation 'Vagrant Story' on first play through? Thanks.

    I'll get back to my reading now.

    Trek Two Years Ago

    Below are some of the most important headlines taken from TrekToday on Thursday 3rd of June 1999:

    • Goodbye DS9

      Rick Berman was interviewed about the end of Deep Space Nine. His comments included:

      "For 12 years we've done nothing but grow. When one show would end, another would begin or there would be a movie, and nobody left. It's different with Deep Space Nine. This is goodbye."

    • 'What You Leave Behind' Reviewed Michelle Erica Green's review of the last ever DS9 episode was avalable online to read. She enjoyed the episode, saying:

      We've seen the final shot of this episode before, from a different angle: Kira and Jake standing together in "The Visitor," after Sisko's death which turned out not to be death. Then, Jake could not reconcile his existence without his father; now he has become a man. "What You Leave Behind" was full of such visual references to things we've seen before - in some cases flashbacks via older footage, in some cases by echoing an incident or event which took place previously. This is a grand, satisfying conclusion to this greatest of Trek series; J. Michael Straczynski can eat his heart out, because while there were indeed parallels with the Babylon 5 finale "Sleeping In Light," DS9 did a much better job borrowing from Arthurian, Norse, and Christian mythology to create an ending with deep emotional resonance.

      You can still read the full review, head over here to Get Critical.
