  • Zap2it (previously UltimateTV, a name I far preferred) is reporting that UPN managed to generate $130 million in upfront ad sales, which is about the same as last year. This is much less than the $425 million that the WB managed to sell, and a far cry from the billions of dollars the big networks took in. Considering the network's higher ratings, seeing the WB take in more than three times as much money in upfront ad sales is certainly surprising - I have no clue why this would be.

  • This June, Pocket Books will be publishing The Merchant Prince, a non-Trek novel by Armin Shimerman (Quark) with Michael Scott. Shimerman previously co-wrote the DS9 novel 'The 34th Rule'. Thanks go out to Psi Phi for this!

  • Psi Phi has also been updated with info on 'Close To The Ground', a book based on the 'Angel' television series by Jeff Mariotte, editor of the Star Trek comics line.

  • Mark Beer sends along word that Streets-Online, a British web store, is currently sponsoring all of Sky One's 'Voyager' showings, on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. According to the company's web site, it is also sponsoring 'Stargate SG-1', which replaced Sky One's daily 'Voyager' airings.
