Hello World!

No magnum opus from me tonight, I'm afraid. Probably because I've only had between 3-4 hours sleep in the last 2 days, and I have to be up in another 6 or so.

The strange thing is though, that after a while, I don't feel explicitly tired anymore - just irritable, stressed and slightly hyper. I think I'll have to go and take something so that I'll actually be able to sleep.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news headlines on August 30, 1999:

  • The Future Of Star Trek DVDs
    Paramount Vice-President Jeffrey Radoycis talked about upcoming DVDs a new interview. Radoycis said that a DVD of 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' would be out in 2000, as would TNG DVDs. As it turned out, however, the special Director's Edition TMP DVD won't be released until later this year, and the TNG sets not until 2002 at the earliest.

  • Bob Blackman Chat Transcript
    Costume designer Robert Blackman chatted about Seven of Nine's costume at the official Star Trek site. "What we do at Star Trek, is create fantasy," he said. "It is a complete world and yet completely unreal. Those garments/images that are considered sexist are usually considered without the character that wears them. If we thought for a second that 7 of 9 was flaunting her perfect body, it would be offensive. But she doesn't. She's a highly intelligent scientist. With a bod. It means nothing to her."
