Hello World!

Browsing through the archives for today's entry of "Trek Two Years Ago," I accidentally started looking up news from January 2001 and came across this Robert Picardo interview.

I found his musings on the Doctor's name particularly interesting in hindsight - for all his hopes, the Doctor didn't end the series with a name, which was a pity. ('Joe' doesn't count since that reality ceased to exist). Picardo's suggestion of Zimmerman was a good one (certainly better than Doctor Van Gogh), but I always had a fondness for Benaran, suggested by Kes in 'Dreadnought.' Then again, it would have been strange to hear him called anything other than "Doctor."
