Hello World!

Christian Höhne Sparborth, webmaster and founder of the TrekNation, today announced the creation of action figures based on the TrekToday editors.

"It's been my dream to be immortalised in plastic for some time," Sparborth said in a pre-released statement from his secret headquarters in The Netherlands. "We've joined forces with Plastic Incarnations, Inc, to create action figures of the three TrekToday editors."

"These will be the most authentic recreations of any Internet webmasters ever," said Martin C. Haversham, president of Plastic Incarnations. "Each TrekToday editor not only comes fully poseable, but also with unique accessories."

According to Haversham, the 'Christian' action figure will come complete with laptop, mobile phone and a stack of Roxette CDs. "This is a must-have for any real TrekToday enthusiast," he said.

The other editors have not been neglected, however. For 'Lisa' fans, her action figure, rumoured to be based on the plastic incarnation of Seven of Nine, is available with hairbrush and a small King Charles Spaniel. The 'Caillan' edition will come complete with a pile of history textbooks.

Not wishing to deprive true fans of the ultimate experience, a TrekToday 'Newsroom Playset' will soon be making its way onto shelves. Complete with computers, fax machines and scanners, enthusiasts can re-enact a real news day at the TrekNation headquarters.

The figures and playset are expected to hit stores by the last quarter of 2001.
