  • The New York Post reported that producer Tom Cole would like Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) to provide a voice in the animated film version of 'The Crazy Horse Chronicles.' Thanks to Donna from Project Quantum Leap for this!

  • According to TV Now, the November 5 episode of Frasier will feature a Trek-related plotline.

  • The recent episode 'A Night In Sickbay' was awarded a D grade by reviewer 'Keckler' at Television Without Pity. "It was a puerile romp through a night in the life of a particularly whiny captain, who blames his behavior on his so-called concern for his dog," she wrote.

  • Over at the Starfleet Library, C.A. Voigts gave 'Dead Stop' a score of 3 out of 5.

    What a difference a year makes. A year ago, Archer and Trip were surveying the Enterprise and Archer was complaining about a scratch on the paint. This year, the damage is a little more extensive. But, it's nice to have a logical reason for the Enterprise to be fixed so quickly so the ship can keep going and a good reason that Malcolm is able to return to duty so soon.

  • Over at SciFi.About.com, Julia Houston has posted a new article looking at Sci-Fi fans and Halloween. Here's an extract from the article:

    And so I would ask the Halloween-hating parents out there to take a lesson from us sci-fi/fantasy fans. Someone dressed as Darth Vader at a convention isn't trying to summon the Dark Side of the Force or corrupt others into becoming servants of evil. A guy in a Klingon warrior outfit doesn't wish he could chop your head off. Those teenagers dressed as Borg don't wish to become soulless automatons -- quite the opposite, I should think. Villains' costumes are fun in great part because they "tear down the fort."
