You may have read that we recently moved TrekToday to a brand shiny new server, and we're hoping to upgarde our forum software too.
To help with the cost of these endeavours Robert Hewitt Wolfe donated two items to SlipstreamWeb our sister site. These two very funky pieces of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda merchandise are currently up for auction on eBay. You can find more information about them here.
Why not give them a look?

Following an attack by a corrupt alien race, T'Pol defends the Ambassador and, for the first time, asks Archer for his help. Meanwhile, after the Vulcan diplomat boards the Enterprise, alien weapons begin firing from hostile ships, putting everyone's lives at risk.
An hour later 'Desert Crossing' will be shown.
When Archer and Trip are invited to a desert-like planet by an alien leader after they help fix his ship, they discover he is a terrorist who has lured them onto his planet under false pretenses.
