Site ColumnsBy Antony

Well, it's my final site column for the site. I'm finally going... but I'll still be lurking around like a bad smell I have no doubt. Michelle, as you've already seen, is quite competent at posting the news, so I have been perfectly replaced. Plus she probably gives Caillan less trouble than I do. :)
It's been good speaking to Trek fans again, in particular ones that remember me from my old Star Trek Central days. Although I've once again decided to move on, I'll try and hang around the Trek BBS now and again, and keep in touch.
I need time to prepare, as next month is when the US networks start culling programmes. One benefit of most of my favourite programmes being canned already, is that I have very little left to care about. The only one I'm worried about right now is Scrubs. Please, Scrubs, be renewed!
I will leave with one last comment. Controversial, maybe. But it needs to be said:
Deep Space Nine is still the best, and no doubt always will be. So there.

Trek Two Years Ago
- Vaughn Armstrong Talks 'Experience' Klingon Role
"Korath was a lot of fun," Vaughn Armstrong said, recalling a lesser-known role of a Klingon at the Star Trek Experience. "When I auditioned for this role - Ron Surma, the casting director, is very helpful in describing what characters should be, if you have any questions. He is very helpful by letting you do whatever it is you want to do, without trying to stop you. When I walked into the audition for [Korath], he said, 'Just go for this.' So I said, 'We're not talking subtly here, Ron? We're talking everything out, just go for it?' And he said, 'Yes!' And so I did."
- Kate Mulgrew: The Camera Doesn't Lie
Kate Mulgrew spoke about the awareness of fans, and their attention to detail: "I wasn't sure in the beginning how I would do it. But I think what you and the fans are seeing and acknowledging is the fact that I have loved almost every minute of it. The camera doesn't lie about that."
