Site ColumnsBy Christian
March 10, 2001 - 9:45 PM
Well, it's certainly been an eventful week, hasn't it? If things go on like this, March 2001 will turn out to be the most news-rich month since last May, and perhaps even since the site was started altogether. Yesterday's Site Columns were actually the 2000th news item to appear on the site since we launched the new design, which isn't something that I'd expected to happen before the first anniversary of the site redesign, on Monday.
Hopefully the next few weeks will be a bit less eventful, and we'll actually be able to get some sleep. Paramount told us on Thursday that they still couldn't comment on the casting sheet, but that we should try again next Friday or the Friday after that, so at least on that front everything will probably stay relatively quiet the coming week.
By the way, are there any readers from New York out there who happened to tape the 10pm UPN 9 news? Apparently, TrekToday and the Series V report was mentioned during their weekly Star Trek news segment, and of course I'd love to be able to actually see that segment. Please do let me know if you have that on tape and would be willing to send it to me - I'd of course reimburse you for the expense of sending the tape. Thanks in advance :)!

Trek Two Years Ago
Below are some of the most important TrekToday headlines from Wednesday the 10th of March, 1999:
- 'Starfleet: Year One' To Start In August - Pocket Books editor John Ordover announced that the 'Starfleet: Year One' serial novel, written by Michael Jan Friedman, would start running in August 1999, beginning with the last two 'Double Helix' books.
- Leonard Nimoy To Appear In DS9 Finale - A rumour appeared online saying there was a chance Leonard Nimoy would reprise his role as Spock in the Deep Space Nine series finale, which would also feature the Romulans. Needless to say, there was no sign of Spock in the eventual finale.
- Trek Nominated For Saturn Awards - The nominees for the annual Saturn awards, honouring SF, horror and fantasy cinema, were announced on this day. 'Star Trek: Insurrection' was nominated as best film, while 'Star Trek: Voyager' was nominated as best series.
Today would have been the 57th birthday of Angelique Pettyjohn, who played Shahna in the Original Series episode 'The Gamesters of Triskelion', had she not passed away in 1992.
