Site Columns

Hello World!

Today's site columns come to you on the second try, no thanks to the efforts of my bloody stupid evil nasty computer.

Yes, it crashed when I was half way through assembling these things. And that, is really really annoying.

I suggested to Christian that he get himself a really cushy sponsorship deal for TrekToday with a really rich computer manufacturer. That way I could get myself a replacement. He replied that all the really rich computer manufacturers were already in bed with other sites. I assured him that his staff are far better between the sheets than they are, but he didn't seem impressed. I think this probably means he hasn't changed his mind about why it's really really important and vital to the health of the site that he buy me a Playstation II, either.

You can't blame a girl for trying, can you?

Welcome to 'Broken Bow' week on TrekToday. Where the levels of hype and excitement just might cause some members of staff to implode. I've been worried about Caillan for some time now. Odd things seem to happen to him whenever someone mentions the word 'calling,' he comes across a publicity shot or the word 'Bakula.' He'll deny it of course.

Trek Two Years Ago

Below are some of the most important headlines from TrekToday on Friday September 24, 1999:

  • Green Reviews 'Equinox II'
    Michelle Erica Green posted the first of her Voyager reviews for the sixth season, looking at 'Equinox, Part Two.'

    Maybe this is a conspiracy to make us appreciate Seven, so that if they can Janeway and put Borgette in command, we'll all feel grateful.


    The full review is still available online.


  • Today saw the launch of Raven software's official 'Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force' site, here. The site is still the place to go for all the official info about the only game that lets you and your friends defend Janeway's Ready Room from hoards of ravaging Borg and hide behind her desk when you lose.

More headlines from that day can be found in our September 1999 archive.
