Hello World!

Its hot. Well, 29 degrees centigrade is hot for me.

When I have complained about this to several US online friends, I receive the reply 'Don't you have air conditioning?'

People, this is England. Central heating is a must, but air conditioning?? Sheesh.

Another thing I've been getting messages from people about is the new TrekToday Poll. Most Specifically, who on earth that 'Tau Celes' person is.

TAL Celes appeared in the Voyager sixth season episodes 'Good Shepherd' and 'The Haunting of Deck Twelve.' You can find more information on here here.

Yes, we know her name is spelled wrong and we'll fix it is soon as we find out how to edit the poll. Sorry.

Trek Two Years Ago

Below are some of the most important headlines from TrekToday on Sundy July 4th 1999:

  • TV Zone DS9 Farewell
    British magazine TV Zone published a special edition feturing a DS9 retrospective. The following is a quotation from Armin Shimerman (Quark) who was interviewed for the feature:

    [Michael Piller was keen] to develop what I would call three-dimensional characters," continues Shimerman. "Their three-dimensionality was highlighted by the fact that the characters were good and bad. They were problematical in the sense that there were things about them that weren't especially nice. Kira [Nana Visitor], for instance, besides being a terrific officer, was also a Bajoran nationalist – if it wasn't good for Bajor, then it wasn't good, period. It took a long time for her to see things from a Federation perspective and not strictly a Bajoran one. When Sisko [Avery Brooks] was first assigned to DS9 he wasn't exactly thrilled and it took a while for him to appreciate his situation. To top if off, he also became Bajor's spiritual leader, the Emissary. Our characters had deeper and darker qualities that you never really saw in the crews of the original Star Trek, TNG and now, Star Trek: Voyager."

  • Nex Cirroc Lofton Series Information
