In addition to the Holodiction convention report by Trek BBS moderators Aussie_Voy_Fan and Maxi, which was posted a while ago already, two new reports of the con have now appeared on the net. In the first one, published at Totally Kate!, Elysia Chase reports about the appearance by Kate Mulgrew (Kathryn Janeway) at the con. The report contains the following rather interesting paragraph:
Kate was asked what she felt about the departure of Jennifer Lien and the gaining of Jeri Ryan? She seemed to become very choked up when speaking about Jennifer, they must have been close. She was very annoyed that they took her off. They had no reason other than to raise the ratings. She feels that they hired Jeri for her "T & A" (her top and bottom). She said that Jeri seems like a very isolated person, nice, but keeps to herself. Kate said they weren't as close as she and Jennifer and she misses Jennifer. She moved on and spoke a little about the upcoming episode where Jennifer returns to voyager.
In the full report, we hear Mulgrew's opinion on working on the show, several of this season's episodes, and of course the practical jokes on the set.
Even more interesting is J9's report of the convention, on account of it taking up an entire site! Click here to see detailed reports of all parts of the convention, photos, autographs, and more. Definitely worth a visit!
In other Trek people news, IGN Sci-Fi has started a new series of articles, called 'Where Were They Then?' In it, they look back at a film made by an SF actor when he or she was still struggling with obscurity. Already up are an article about 'Innerspace', a cult sci-fi comedy also featuring Robert Picardo (the Holodoc), and another one about 'Dune', starring Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard).
