I must say that this new Odyssey 5 series sounds really cool - I absolutely adore time travel stories.
Many of my favourite Trek episodes, like 'Year of Hell,' 'Children of Time,' 'Things Past,' 'Endgame,' 'Timeless,' 'All Good Things,' involve some form of time travel - there's just something about a glimpse into the future (or past) that fascinates me.
The premise makes it sound like there's plenty of dramatic material to deal with, so here's hoping that the series is worth watching.

Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news headlines on January 25, 2000:
- Marina Sirtis Interview
Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) gave her thoughts on why 'Star Trek: Insurrection' hadn't been as successful as 'First Contact.' "It was very Star Trek in its original conception; it was an issues-based story," she said. "But it wasn't an action movie, and after First Contact, which is my personal favorite of the three, I think that probably a lot of the fans were disappointed that it was more cerebral."
- First 'Live Fast And Prosper' Details
The casting sheet for Voyager's 'Live Fast and Prosper' provided some detailed spoilers for the upcoming episode. Directed by LeVar Burton, the episode centres around three alien con artists called Feydra, Mobar and Zev who attempt to pass themselves off as Janeway, Tuvok and Chakotay.
- Andromeda News
It was announced that Keith Hamilton Cobb, best known for his role on All My Children, had been cast in Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. At the time it wasn't stated what role he would be playing, but fans known him today as the Nietzschean Tyr Anasazi. The series, now in its second season, was recently renewed for another two years.
