Forgive me if I'm feeling rather sorry for myself today – not only did I, despite the judicious and continuous application of sunscreen this afternoon, manage to get sunburnt while trying to escape the 40C heat at the local water-park, but I have just heard a horrible piece of news. Regular followers of this column (for reasons beyond my comprehension – if I didn't write it, *I* probably wouldn't read it) may remember my pronounced antipathy towards one Steve Irwin, aka the Crocodile Hunter, a man rightly thought by the vast majority of the Australian population to be a complete moron (more descriptive adjectives do spring to mind, including a very accurate description made by a friend of mine, but they probably shouldn't be published here). During my regular flick through of some of the major news sites, I came across an article that shocked me to the core.
They're making an animated series. And worse still:
The may make a movie.
God help us all.

Today On TV
-At 9:00pm (8:00pm Eastern Time), UPN will be showing a repeat of Voyager's 'Drive'. Here's how they describe the episode:
When Tom Paris enters the Delta Flyer in a good-natured space race between former enemy factions, his co-pilot B'Elanna Torres, fearing her relationship with Paris is disintegrating, takes out her aggression with risky maneuvers that spark a confrontation between the couple. Soon, Paris realizes that hardlined dissidents plan to explode the Flyer as it crosses the finish line. In order to succeed he must take the reigns of both the ship and his personal life, executing a flawless evasive maneuver and a marriage proposal, simultaneously.
-In Canada, Space! will be showing Voyager's 'Hope and Fear' at 4:15am, TOS's 'A Piece of the Action' at 10pm (repeat at 4pm), TNG's 'Devil's Due' at 12pm, DS9's 'Body Parts' at 5pm and Voyager's 'Night' at 10pm
