- John Billingsley (Doctor Phlox) made a guest appearance on Wednesday night's episode of Angel, playing a cryptozoologist hired by Wolfram & Hart. Thanks Carl Malmstrom for this!
- Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris) is slated to direct episodes 2 and 13 of Dead Like Me's second season, with the possibility of a third assignment. Read more at his official web site.
- Last week's "Impulse" has been reviewed by Jamahl Epsicokhan at Star Trek Hypertext. Here's an excerpt from his analysis:
"Impulse" is a workable outing of style trumping substance, and of aggressive production design trumping sometimes-goofy action. Action shows like "The Xindi" or last week's "Rajiin" don't do a whole lot for me because they're mostly transparent exercises with no edge. "Impulse," it must be said, is also a transparent exercise, but at least it has an edge, with enough grit to be entertainingly disorienting.

- Rick Norwood's latest Babylon 5.1 column includes a look at Enterprise's "Rajiin", which he awarded two stars. "The third season of Enterprise has gone the way of the third season of the original Trek, as far as plots go," Norwood wrote. "No ideas, just people ducking behind bulkheads and shooting ray guns at each other."
- Robert Picardo's (the Holodoc) official web site is selling a crystal sculpture with the actor's face engraved on it. 20 percent of the money raised will go to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
- Fox's short-lived comedy series The Tick has now been released on DVD. The set includes the unaired 9th episode of the series, which features a guest appearance by Armin Shimerman (Quark). Several other Star Trek alumni also appeared in the series, including Christopher Lloyd (Kruge), Ron Perlman (Reman Viceroy), Liz Vassey (Kristin in TNG's "Conundrum") and Maury Ginsberg, who appeared as himself in Voyager's "Death Wish". Thanks to Alex for this!
