I'll finally be able to see the entire 'Gladiator' movie this evening. Last week, while waiting for my laptop to be repaired, I had already gone to see the movie, but when I called the factory during the break the laptop turned out to be already finished and, unlike every other company in the world, they already closed at 4pm. So I had to rush out halfway through the film, and have been wondering how it ends ever since. With most movies I'd probably just have waited for the video release, but the combination of one of my favourite time periods, the Roman Empire, and one of my favourite directors, Blade Runner's Ridley Scott, is just too good to just see on the small screen.

As an update to yesterday's news item about the release of the 'Best Of Star Trek Volume II' CD by GNP Crescendo, a reader wrote in to say that the 'Star Trek Theme Lounge Mix' is most likely the jazzy version of the Original Series' main theme that was played under the bar scenes in 'Court Martial' and in the party scene in the teaser of 'Conscience of the King'.
Below are the results of the most recent TrekToday poll:
It doesn't seem there's really any agreement over which episode was the best of the season. Over the three days this poll was running, each of the episodes in the top 5 occupied the top spot for a while, though 'Pathfinder' has been the most popular for most of the time. This is also the episode which scored the best in the individual episode polls, so this result does seem to be justified.
After this, please also participate in our new poll, asking what you thought was the worst episode of the season:
