Hello World!

Well, you can certainly tell we're getting close to that magic Enterprise airdate. The flurry of news this week has been quite exhausting. *pant pant wheeze*

As a result, I'm way behind on my email and am very much looking forward to the weekend. Hopefully then I'll be able to remember what the word 'social life' means and have something slightly interesting to report in my site columns. Sorry.

Trek Two Years Ago

Below are some of the most important headlines on TrekToday on Tuesday August 31, 1999:

  • New Voyager Episode Details
    New information was revealed about a new sixth season Voyager episode. The details were as follows:

    Tuvok and Neelix are attacked by aliens during a shuttle mission. The aliens use weapons which erases the memory of the attack in the victim, leaving the mysery of what happened to them and dealing with the after affects of this attack.


    Of course, two years later, we know the episode turned out to be 'Riddles,' the episode where Tuvok loses his mind, and he and Neelix become friends. This episode was directed by B'Elanna Torress actress Roxann Dawson.

  • Ryan Spoils Season 6
    At a convention in Canada, Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) gave away plenty of spoilers for the then up and coming season 6 of Voyager.

    Ryan has plenty of interesting tidbits to share with the crowd, including some insights into Voyager's next season. "There's a Borg flashback episode with Seven, so, yes, I am back in Borg costume," she says. "There's one we're shooting now that's an homage to the space program and the Mars mission, a really lovely story, and it's directed by Bob Picardo [The Doctor]. There's an episode in Klingon hell with Torres. Part of it takes place on a barge to hell and B'Elanna has these visions of all of us being on this barge." Later, she notes that Voyager will encounter a new foe. "There's some scary new bad guys coming up," she says. Also, Seven will be showing off her singing prowess once again -- much to Ryan's chagrin. "I called Brannon [Braga] and said, 'Enough with the singing!'" Ryan laughs. And what should be featured in the first script she received? "Seven singing!"

More headlines from that day can be found in our September 1999 archive.
