Hello World!

Last year, TrekToday's first anniversary was already rather anti-climactic, with me being unable to launch the re-design on that date, as I had originally planned. This year, it's even worse, as we actually forgot about the anniversary until a day after the fact - yes, on Thursday TrekToday actually turned two.

It's really a pity we forgot about it, as a few weeks ago we were actually thinking about writing some nice articles to celebrate this, such as for instance a retrospective look at the past two years, but I guess that will just have to wait another year. One idea which we are going to go ahead with is a new Site Column - 'Trek Two Years Ago', in which each day we will present a look at three of the major headlines from that day two years ago.

Thanks, of course, go out to all of you have been visiting the site over the past two-years-and-two-days, and even more so to all those wonderful people who contributed feedback, news and articles to the site over that period - there are far too many of you to try to thank individually without forgetting some, but we're of course very grateful to you all!

Happy Birthday!

Today would have been the 71st birthday of Glenn Corbett, who appeared as Zefram Cochrane in the Original Series episode 'Metamorphosis', had he not sadly passed away in 1993. His birthyear is actually in dispute, according to the Internet Movie Database - some sources place his year of birth in 1929 or 1934.

Also, yesterday was the 62nd birthday of Majel Barrett, the widow of Gene Roddenberry. She has appeared in every Star Trek series to date - as Number One in the original pilot 'The Cage', as Nurse Chapel in the Original Series, as Lwaxana Troi in TNG and DS9, and as the Computer in all series.
