  • According to posts by Pocket Books' John Ordover and Psi Phi's David Henderson, on Friday 37 letters in support of a Captain Sulu novel have been received, raising the total to 535 received letters. A thousand letters need to be sent to Pocket before the 1st of May for the company to publish a 'Captain Sulu' novel.

  • To accompany their regular Dear Pelgar advice column, the people at StarTrek.com have launched Ask K'Plett, where a Klingon diplomat will attempt to answer your requests for advice in a much more honourable way than the Ferengi Pelgar could ever hope to.

  • Our German partner site TrekZone.de is reporting that after the German television station Sat.1 has finished showing Voyager's fourth season, on the 7th of June, the station won't be showing daily Trek episodes anymore. Instead, until the end of the year the station will be showing 170 'Baywatch' episodes. A possibility still exists Sat.1 might start showing daily Trek episodes in Summer again, but then an hour later, at 16:00 CET.

  • 'Welcome, Brent Spiner Fans!' has put up a 30-second sample of 'Bravo, Stromboli!', one of the songs from the recently released 'Gepetto' soundtrack. The song is performed by Brent Spiner (Data), who stars in the upcoming Disney musical as Stromboli. The clip is accompanied by the full lyrics of the song.

  • Ethan sends along word that NBC (and presumably other stations as well) are running a new ad for the PT Cruiser, a Chrysler car. In it, a man is faced by the Devil come to take his soul, played by J.G. Hertzler (General Martok). The man tries to buy his way out of hell by offering the Devil all of his possesstions, to which the Devil say "I've done it all - seen it all." The man then holds out the key to his PT Cruiser. The Devil goes for a joyride, only to be pulled over by the cops.
