Site Columns By Christian
February 17, 2001 - 2:23 PM

Hello World!

As you can see by scrolling down this page, from today on we'll again be providing TV listings in the Site Columns feature, which itself should actually be appearing every day again from now on.

The biggest problem with the TV listings over the past two years was usually that we updated the site far too late for them to be of any use - often Star Trek had already aired a few hours earlier in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands by the time we were able to report on them. For that reason, we'll now also include the TV listings for the next day, so that if we haven't yet updated the site you can always look in the previous day's Site Columns and find your country's TV listings there. Hopefully you'll find them useful, and hopefully we'll finally be able to keep to a daily posting schedule again.

In other news, Fred Shedian, who maintains the 'Take On Trek' column at the Trek Nation, sends along word that due to certain off-line and on-line issues the next edition of his column will be delayed until sometime in March.

By popular demand, we're repeating one of the polls we already ran a few months ago, asking if you're a member of the Trek BBS:


Unlike what we reported a few days ago, Decipher did not in fact purchase the Star Wars Fan Club license when it bought FANtastic Media. That license was sold by FANtastic to rival games company Wizards of the Coast prior to being purchased by Decipher, and subscribers of the official Star Wars Insider magazine were notified of this in a letter packaged with the latest issue. The FANTastic Media employees who used to be involved with the Star Wars fan club apparently all remained with the company to work on different projects.

Happy Birthday!

Today is the 33rd birthday of Michelle Forbes, who had a recurring role on 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' as lieutenant Ro Laren. Also, yesterday was the 43rd birthday of LeVar Burton (Geordi LaForge).
