Hello World!

I really hate Tennis. Because of some obscure Tennis meet (I believe it's called 'Wimbledon'), 'The West Wing' won't be on next week! It's bad enough pushing aside Trek episodes which I've already seen, but brand spanking new episodes of 'The West Wing' shouldn't be treated this way.

I know they do it in the UK too. BBC2 took every opportunity to displace TNG, DS9 or Voyager with tennis, snooker, archery, cricket or basket-weaving. I remember on one afternoon DS9 was cancelled because of cricket, and a commentator had to make the announcement.

"Star Trek...erm...Deep...Space...Nine," he said, emphasising every syllable as if he was speaking a foreign language, "will be cancelled this evening." He then rambled on about cricketers being Star Trek fans or some other gibberish to fill in the time.

But stuff the out of date Trek Nine saddles us with: I want my West Wing!
