Hello World!

I am not superstitious. But when someone decides to release the university results for the semester on Friday 13th, I get suspicious that there's some great conspiracy going on out there.

Despite these fears, the greatest calamity to befall mankind tomorrow will probably be the university website crashing as every man and his dog logs on to find out their results.

Now, let me get back to my worrying.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news headlines on July 12, 1999:

  • New Garrett Wang Interview
    Star Trek Monthly published an interview with Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), in which he talked about his unofficial position as 'Delta Quadrant Cheerleader.' "Of all people, I would consider myself the cast cheerleader," he said. "I want the best of everything for Voyager: I want the ratings to be phenomenal. I want all the storylines to really further the characters. When I look at our cast, I'm amazed by everyone's individual talent and I really do think we have a pretty good chemistry together. I want that to come out in every episode we do."

  • 'What You Leave Behind' Novel Review
    Mania Magazine's Michelle Erica Green posted her review of the novelization of 'What You Leave Behind,' the DS9 finale. "It's also apparent that this book was based primarily on a written script, not a televised episode," she wrote. "Several of the lines in the novelization vary from the ones which were aired, and some of the descriptions of character behavior differ markedly from the screen version. Worf's reaction to learning that Dax and Bashir have consummated their relationship, for instance, is pleasantly paternalistic on the show, but darkly pained in the novel. Sisko gets bossier with Yates, Odo acts more physically affectionate with Kira."
