Hello World!

There really is nothing better than sitting inside on a cold, rainy, wintery afternoon, sipping a delicious hot chocolate with marsmallows and whipped cream on top.

Now back to the grindstone...

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major headlines on July 26th, 1999:

  • Tim Russ Interview
    Mania Magazine's Michelle Erica Green spoke to Tim Russ (Tuvok), who talked about the longevity of Star Trek. "The children who are watching the show now know Voyager," he said. "There are some growing up who haven't even seen Next Generation, they're going to know a lot about this show. They'll be able to watch the older shows in syndication, but that's not the same as growing up with the new show that's on the air. The show that follows us will bring in another generation of kids watching it for the first time. You have people growing up with Star Trek who are going to be the next series of fans."

  • Cynics Corner DS9 Season 7 Review
    David E. Sluss (aka The Cynic) posted his review of Deep Space Nine's final season. Here's a quote from the review:

    This year's great experiment, the ten-parter that closed the season, and the series, has to be viewed as a failure. While it started out promising, it fell apart about two-thirds of the way in, as DS9 ended its run with a trio of poor episodes. In addition, even the better episodes of this arc suffered from bad pacing (particularly the Winn story) and less-than-worthwhile plots (like the never-ending Worf/Ezri/Julian stuff). DS9 could have gone out better than this.
