- A partial report from the Shore Leave convention has been posted at Psi Phi. The report includes information about several upcoming Pocket Books releases.
- Michael Hinman at Syfy Portal has posted an editorial on Enterprise. "Before we all pass judgement on the new series, let's take some time to at least give it a chance," he wrote. "We have to look beyond the pilot, and there's a chance -- like we've seen with other Star Trek -- we might have to look past Season 1."
- Over at the Star Trek dimension Christian Rühl has posted his latest column, entitled 'Time Of Changes,' looking at what Enterprise may hold for the future of Trek. Here's a quote from the editorial:
If they at once maintain the confidence, the idealism and optimism in the future that is so different from what we usually see in science fiction (as Berman likes to point out quite frequently), this positive attitude that is - emotionally and intellectually - such a great inspiration for many, I think I will be very pleased with "Enterprise", despite the various already known and surely still emerging Trek continuity and science problems, as the philosophy behind Star Trek, the issues and ideas it stands for - have always been more important to me than starships and technology (as much as I like to deal with that).
Head over to the Star Trek Dimension to read the full column.
- Julia Houston at About.com has posted the latest edition of her weekly column, entitled 'Enterprise: Essential Characters Remain.' In the article, Houston questions how the series will use the archetypal Trek characters. "We've had four different Star Trek crews since Kirk and company first set out on the final frontier," she wrote, "and while they've certainly looked different, there have been some essential similarities that have made them all easily recognizable as Star Trek crews."

- Totally Kate! has been updated with information on Kate Mulgrew's (Kathryn Janeway) appearance in the play 'Titus Andronicus.'
