Hello World!

After my televisual elation yesterday, the Gods of the Small Screen have struck a blow.

Gilmore Girls will not be shown at all next week. One night we have the dull as dishwater cricket, and on the other a new trashy reality TV show called Marry Me.

Yes, I am serious. You get to see real people proposing on television and as the tacky ad proclaims "Some get hitched and some get dumped!" Heaven help us.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items on February 31 2000:

  • Ryan Talks 'Tsunkatse'
    Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) gave her thoughts on the upcoming 'Tsunkatse.' "Fighting is very much against Seven's nature because, for the last three years, she has tried to stifle her aggressive side," she said. "And now she is forced to be violent and aggressive in order to survive and save Tuvok."

  • Ron Moore Interview, Part Six
    Writer-producer Ronald D. Moore advocated that Trek should take a break from our television screens in part six of his tell-all interview.

    "There has just been too much STAR TREK for a while. I remember the moment the franchise peaked. The moment, to me, was when Kirk and Picard were on the cover of TIME Magazine. I literally walked in the next day to the office and said, 'We have peaked. It's down hill for quite a while from here.' You reached this kind of critical mass in popular imagination.
