Hello World!

Link of the day: Mini-Mizer: Picture Yourself In Plastic

Yes, you can finally immortalise yourself as a LEGO figure (almost)! Using the above site, you can select from various LEGO hairstyles, clothes and accessories to create a mini-fig of yourself.

This is the best I could do, though I must say he doesn't look exactly like me. For one, I'm not yellow.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items on April 29, 2000:

  • 'The Haunting Of Deck Twelve' Description
    A preview of 'The Haunting of Deck Twelve,' the penultimate Voyager episode of the season, was posted online:

    Neelix, in charge of pacifying the [Borg] children when lights on the ship flicker and fail, lets his imagination run wild, and turns reality into a fantastical, and utterly believable story which mesmerizes them into believing that a ghost actually dwells on deck twelve.

    The episode featured the return of the Borg children and Tal Celes, who previously appeared in 'Good Shepherd.'

  • Upcoming Episode Info
    It was announced that several recurring guest stars would be appearing in future episodes of Voyager. 'Life Line' saw Jack Shearer reprising the role of Admiral Hayes from 'Star Trek: First Contact' and 'Hope and Fear,' while Josh Clark (Joe Carey) and Scarlett Pomers (Naomi Wildman) featured in 'Fury.'
