Hello World!

What sadistic person schedules exams at 5:15pm? I'm sure it must give them some sort of perverse pleasure to see students lining up outside just as night is falling, the wind is beginning to work itself up into a nice breeze and rain is starting to fall.

On a completely unrelated matter, when I was passing through the supermarket the other day, I couldn't help but note that they had some Voyager videos for sale, positioned near the check-out for impulse buyers. Must have known I'd be in that day.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major headlines on June 21st, 1999:

  • Letter Of Condolence Results
    Jim Griffith posted the results of his DeForest Kelley Internet Letter of Condolence campaign. At this time he had received 2833 emails, from every single state in the USA, all Canadian provinces and 56 countries world-wide.

  • UK Trek Ratings
    Recent ratings showed Trek to be going strong in the UK. In the terrestrial ratings, TNG ranked 12th for the week, Voyager 15th, and DS9 24th. On Sky One, Voyager's 'Timeless' came 4th.

  • Worst-Ever BotF Review
    Kevin Jenkins at MPOG.com wasn't too fond of the latest edition to the Trek gaming universe, 'Birth Of The Federation.' "Sadomasochists should go right out and buy Birth of the Federation," he wrote. "Everyone else should avoid computer game stores for the next week lest they gaze upon this basilisk. After that, just give the bargain bins a wide berth."

Corrections

In the article entitled Assignment X Born From Rubble Of Fandom we said that the site "was made up of the people behind Eon Magazine, AnotherUniverse, Fandom and Cinescape." What we should have said, of course, is that it is made up of some of the people behind these sites.
