Hello World!

It's finally winter in Washington, DC, sort of. At least, the temperature finally dropped below 32 degrees Farenheit, though only after the daffodils and cherry blossoms started to raise their heads. I hear that things were more insane in London and Utrecht this week, though, not to mention southern California where most of the citrus crop may be lost to frost, so I really can't complain.

I wanted to mention that TrekCore.com is having an autograph contest for a photo of Avery Brooks as Captain Benjamin Sisko, and unlike many online contests, it's open to anyone in the world. In other Star Trek news, we didn't run an article about Daniel Craig wanting to be in the new Star Trek movie because we didn't have a single reliable source for the quote (WENN does not count as a reliable source), and I haven't been commenting on the remastered original series episodes because while I agree that it's too bad matte paintings were recycled in the first place when the series was originally produced, I don't want a new Scalos, I want the one I'm used to! I have no problem with CBS digitally remastering the episodes and I'm very happy for everyone who waited for HD-DVDs of the episodes, but I'll take my static-filled full-screen old prints. I've noticed that aluminum foil cave walls are still aluminum foil cave walls, anyway, no matter how much cleanup can be done around them.
