What I really, really hate about summer is that all buildings and trains seem to have their air-conditioning set to levels that wouldn't seem out of place in the Arctic circle. What this means is that I spend all day walking out of the blazing heat into freezing conditions. It was so cold on the train coming home today I could have done with a jumper to keep me warm, but instead I now have a cold.
Another bad thing about the onset of summer - it's such perfect weather to go and laze about in the pool, but exams are coming up. Every time I try to go outside and work, I get lavished with attention by the dog, who decides she would like to lick all my papers. Oh well, only a month left until holidays are here...

Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news items on October 16 & 17, 2000:
- Voyager Recurring Character Returning In 'Shattered'
It was reported that Martha Hackett (Seska) would return to Voyager in the episode 'Shattered.' Hackett's character had died in 'Basics, Part II,' but reappeared as a hologram in 'Worst Case Scenario.'
- New 'Body and Soul' Information
In an interview at Cinescape, Robert Picardo (the EMH) spilled the beans on the upcoming episode 'Body and Soul.'
"The Lokirrim sensors reveal that there is a photonic, meaning me, on board the Delta Flyer. They attack the ship and insist Seven and Harry surrender the photonic, because in this sector's social structure, the photonics are in serfdom. In order to protect my program from being de-compiled by remote control, Seven of Nine downloads my program into her optic implant and I take over her body. So the basic slant of the show is that the Doctor is inside and controlling Seven of Nine."
- Tim Russ Interview
Tim Russ (Tuvok) participated in a question and answer session with fans at the official site.
