I guess when writing a news story with the headline Fandom.com Series V Announcement Parody I should make it more clear that, yes, I am aware the Fandom article is a joke. Most of you apparently figured it out from the headline and my description of the article, but 7 people did still write in to inform me that the article was a joke and that I really should have been aware of that. Apparently reporting about a humourous article can be as dangerous as publishing the article itself.

Below are the results of the most recent TrekToday poll:
Interesting results here. It would appear that the several Trek alumni, such as Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker) and Ron Moore, don't really serve to attract more viewers to the show.
In any case, thanks for participating, and please also vote in our new poll, asking who your favourite Captain is - and yes, this poll means I don't have much inspiration for poll topics anymore. Please do send in any suggestions you may have.
