I have been targeted by that most heinous of crimes - political bribery.
Whilst on a merry jaunt to my postbox, I picked up a letter from one of the mayoral candidates in the upcoming shire elections. The front of the envelope exhorted me to sit down and sip a relaxing cup of tea whilst reading his propaganda leaflet. When I opened it, out dropped two teabags.
Well, I can tell you he certainly won't be getting my vote. Not only is coffee The True Elixir Of The Icon, Captain Kathryn Janeway, not tea, but there was also a glaring grammatical error on the front of the envelope. "The teas on me," it said.
Maybe if he promised to get Channel 9 to show Trek at a reasonable hour here, or declared May 20th Captain Kathryn Janeway Day. Either way, I'm easy.

Trek Two Years Ago
- Mania DS9 Farewell
Over at Mania magazine, Michelle Erica Green posted her farewell to Deep Space Nine. "I do believe this series offered quality science fiction, a good balance of action and drama, witty dialogue, a strong social conscience, and the best music ever on a genre series, but those aren't the reasons I kept watching for all these years," she wrote. "I watched Deep Space Nine for the love stories."
- Jeri Ryan An X-Woman?
Apparently Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) was at one point considered for the role of Mystique in the film 'X-Men.' In the end, the role went to Rebecca Romijn-Stamos who was recently honoured with a Saturn Award for her performance.
- DeForest Kelley Memorial Fund
Only a few days after the passing of DeForest Kelly (Dr. 'Bones' McCoy), the William Shatner Connection announced that a fund had been established in his name at the North Shore Animal League.
