When Porthos picks up an alien pathogen and nearly dies, Archer must deal with stress, grief and unresolved lust for his first officer. Did Kirk have problems like this?

When an alien space station offers to repair Enterprise for a pittance, it sounds too good to be true. And it is, but Michelle Erica Green thinks it does quite well until that point.
Oct 10 - Carbon Creek
T'Pol tells the story of her long-lost ancestor Shannon T'Donnell.
Oct 10 - Deep Space Nine: Mission Gamma
The trials of the new crew of Deep Space Nine continue in these post-finale novels, which Jacqueline Bundy enjoyed greatly.
Oct 4 - Minefield
Enterprise meets Romulans and Reed gets in touch with his fears. Otherwise, this is a pretty formulaic defusing-a-bomb story.
Oct 2 - Shockwave II
Archer saves T'Pol from Silik. T'Pol saves Archer from Soval. Hoshi saves Reed from boredom. Nobody bothers saving Travis.
Sep 26 - Carbon Creek
After Roswell but before Montana, T'Pol's great-grandmother visits Earth and finds it rather quaint for a planet on the verge of self-destruction.
Sep 21 - S.C.E.'s 'Foundations' Trilogy
What were the S.C.E. up to in Kirk's era? Flashbacks tell the tale. Jacqueline Bundy enjoyed them a lot.
Sep 19 - Shockwave, Part Two
Archer constructs a temporal communicator using stone knives and bearskins. Michelle Erica Green was amused but not entirely impressed with the season premiere.
Sep 8 - S.C.E.'s 'Past Life' and 'Oaths'
The Evora return in 'Past Life' with a problem that could take them from the Federation, while in 'Oaths,' Dr. Lense has a career crisis. Jacqueline Bundy finds both stories engrossing.
Aug 24 - 'Amazing Stories' & 'I'm Working On That'
In her latest column, Jacqueline Bundy takes as look at the Star Trek short story anthology 'Amazing Stories' and William Shatner's book about the scientific influence of Star Trek, 'I'm Working on That: A Trek from Science Fiction to Science Fact.'

Archer and Trip have a nice, long walk. T'Pol foils a pretender to the throne. Porthos gets repetitive.

A British Vulcan invites everyone to play a game of "Scandal, She Faked." Archer and T'Pol argue about the rules.

Archer and Trip experiment with male bonding. Travis breaks the Prime Directive. T'Pol says things.

After an Enterprise shuttlepod apparently destroys a mining colony, Starfleet orders the mission terminated. But are those pesky time-traveling Suliban involved? What do you think?

Hoshi's Job Search, Part 2. Archer and Travis make a special announcement. Tucker stops a takeover with his bare Hanes. Porthos takes a breather.
May 16 - Two Days and Two Nights
A brief sojourn on Risa generates romance in unexpected places, but betrayal in all the spots viewers can see coming. Still, it's a welcome change of pace with beautiful filming, according to Michelle Erica Green.
May 9 - Desert Crossing
When Archer accepts a dinner invitation from a captain whose ship he helped, he learns that his reputation has preceded him. This well-scripted episode also features great visuals and entertaining action.
May 9 - Fallen Hero
Archer fights to protect a Vulcan ambassador but can't save this episode from bogging down in its own illogic.
May 3 - Sev Trek - Pus In Boots
Based on the successful Internet comic strip, the first Sev Trek movie sees Captain Pinchhard and crew pitted against a giant pimple after it breaks off from Piker's face. Michelle Erica Green says the film is 'truly a delight for longtime readers and newcomers alike.'
May 2 - Vox Sola
Archer and Tucker find themselves trapped in the tentacles of a slime creature, but the captain insists they can't give up the game. T'Pol gives Sato a similar pep talk. Game, set, match.
Apr 25 - Detained
Michelle Erica Green says this current events allegory is gutsy, but ultimately fails because it's all a little too clean-cut.
Apr 20 - Spring Star Trek Books
Light holographic pastimes share shelf space with the Eugenics Wars and the Battle of Betazed in this spring's Trek book offerings.
Apr 4 - Oasis
While scavenging for parts to salvage, Enterprise meets another damsel in distress with a shocking secret. Michelle Erica Green has seen this story before.
Mar 29 - Acquisition
Long before humans knew their species' name, the Ferengi encountered Archer's crew. Prototypically, silliness ensued.
Mar 29 - Rogue Planet
Our heroes visit The Planet That Always Sleeps. Hoshi goes job-hunting.
Mar 21 - Rogue Planet
The crew encounters a hunting species with great camouflage technology, yet no empathy for the beings they pursue. Think Hirogen chasing Seven of Nine, and you've got this episode.
Mar 6 - Fusion
Archer beats up Vorik for causing The First Temptation Of T'Pol. Trip chooses the red pill.
Feb 28 - Fusion
When Enterprise encounters a ship of Vulcans who have chosen to embrace emotion, Archer and T'Pol learn about the risks and rewards of such an endeavor. Fine performances and a solid script make this a very solid episode.
Feb 22 - Shuttlepod One
Isolated and losing air, Reed and Tucker have nothing to fear but beer itself. The computer lodges a few protests.
Feb 14 - Shuttlepod One
When they find what they believe to be Enterprise's wreckage, Tucker and Reed come into conflict over the one's resolute optimism and the other's verbose depression. Fine acting can't save a cliche-riddled, anachronistic script.
Feb 14 - Trek Books For Your Valentine
Reviews of 'By the Book,' 'In the Name of Honor,' 'Immortal Coil' and several S.C.E. books.
Feb 14 - Shadows of P'Jem
Archer has one of his dog days. Sopek finds Trip's commanding presence somewhat lacking. T'Pol narrowly escapes visiting her family and friends.
Feb 7 - Shadows of P'Jem
Though Starfleet wants Archer to stay out of other species' conflicts, he has no choice but to get involved when her Vulcan superiors reassign T'Pol. Strange humor and smart conflict light up 'Shadows of P'Jem.'
Feb 6 - Sleeping Dogs
T'Pol, Reed, and Hoshi have a Titanic adventure. Archer confuses the words "trip" and "transvestite." Porthos gets some shuteye.
Jan 31 - Sleeping Dogs
'Remind me to stop trying to help people,' announces Captain Archer when an encounter with the Klingons proves nastier than expected, yet a lot of fun for viewers.
Jan 26 - Dear Doctor
Phlox takes advantage of a narration gig to do his award-winning Mengele impression. Cutler, apparently not over those hallucinations from "Strange New World," puts the moves on him. Hoshi speaks in tongues.
Jan 24 - Dear Doctor
In an era before the Prime Directive, Archer must decide whether to save a civilization doomed by evolution to fall. Michelle Erica Green calls this the show's first truly great episode.
Jan 20 - Silent Enemy
Enterprise heads back to Earth, until Travis notices that he's left the gear shift in reverse. Hoshi goes Sam Spade.
Jan 17 - Silent Enemy
While Enterprise burns, Sato bakes a birthday cake. Michelle Erica Green finds the episode well-paced yet uninspiring.
Jan 9 - Winter Reading Roundup
Michelle Erica Green reviews New Frontier book twelve, 'Being Human,' 'The Genesis Wave, Book Three,' the Deep Space Nine 'Millennium' trilogy and 'Starship Spotter.'
Dec 1 - Cold Front
Archer discovers he's not "smooth as Silik." Some pilgrims improve their plumage. The Porthos Mystery is finally answered -- or is it?
Nov 29 - Cold Front
When a crewmember reveals himself to be a time traveler from hundred years in the future hours after a Suliban saves his ship, Archer must decide whom to trust. Michelle Erica Green finds this one of Trek's best time travel plots.
Nov 25 - Fortunate Son
T'Pol makes the most of her situation. Phlox lights up Archer's life. Travis gets his moment in the sun. Hoshi minds her own business.
Nov 22 - Fortunate Son
Enterprise tries to help a cargo ship and ends up in the middle of a messy conflict with Nausicaans in this tightly-written, well-played episode.
Nov 18 - Civilization
Archer decides he doesn't embody enough Kirk stereotypes yet. T'Pol learns the terrible truth. Tucker objects.
Nov 17 - The 'Gateways' Series
Though few fans will love all the books, most will enjoy several of this ambitious miniseries in which travel at the speed of thought becomes a reality across the galaxy.
Nov 15 - Civilization
Archer has a 'Thine Own Self' dilemma when he finds aliens meddling with a pre-warp culture. This bland and derivative episode is strengthened by two strong heroines.
Nov 13 - Breaking the Ice
Vulcans save the day, infuriating Archer. Hoshi invents herself a groupie. Reed and Mayweather blow up some baking soda. Porthos gets a job.
Nov 8 - Breaking the Ice
While Reed and Mayweather try to drill their way to the heart of a comet, Archer tries to melt the facade of a visiting Vulcan captain and Tucker gets a peek behind T'Pol's icy exterior. This excellent character episode has fine visuals, too.
Nov 6 - The Andorian Incident
Tucker plays with fire. Porthos meets his father. Phlox gets stuck with a complicated zoological problem.
Nov 1 - The Andorian Incident
When Andorians take over a Vulcan sanctuary, they appear to be living up to their reputations as bullies, but are the Vulcans telling everything they know? Michelle Erica Green finds the performances more interesting than the plot of this episode.
Oct 29 - Terra Nova
Archer gets rid of a pet peeve, drawing disapproval from T'Pol. Reed goes Charlton Heston. Travis guards things.
Oct 25 - Terra Nova
Enterprise goes looking for a lost human colony, but faces the complications of human fear and distrust. Michelle Erica Green finds the episode flawed but engrossing.
Oct 24 - Unexpected
Trip gets one in the oven; Phlox prescribes some heavy reading. Archer and T'Pol destroy the Klingon Empire before lunch.
Oct 18 - Unexpected
Tucker gets pregnant, but finds that experience less traumatic than undergoing decompression with Klingons. Michelle Erica Green tries to look on the bright side, yet finds little to like in this episode.
Oct 13 - Strange New World
Archer lets the dog out of the bag. Trip tries out for a role in 'Conspiracy Theory.' T'Pol outbluffs hallucinatory poker strippers.
Oct 11 - Strange New World
The crew of the Enterprise explore an alien world, expressing their wonder about its friendly, Earth-like atmosphere. But then the crew begins to succumb to paranoia, in an episode that Michelle Erica Green says is both creepier and wittier than earlier Trek episodes with the same premise.
Oct 10 - 'Celebrations,' 'Broken Bow' & 'Invincible 2'
Michelle Erica Green reviews the latest Star Trek books for the fall and holiday seasons.
Oct 5 - Fight or Flight
Sato goes sluggish, but gets over it. Phlox has way too much fun being CMO.
Oct 4 - Fight or Flight
Enterprise encounters a derelict ship whose crew suffered a horrific fate, forcing Sato to reevaluate her desire to travel in space. Michelle Erica Green reevaluates Archer's command style and admires "the creepy haunted-house feel" of 'Fight or Flight.'
Oct 2 - Broken Bow
Captain Archer is dispatched to return an injured Klingon to his homeworld, sending him on humanity's first deep-space mission. In her own very first Enterprise review, Michelle Erica Green wonders whether the show's "bizarre sort of retro" works to make it a good series.
Oct 2 - Broken Bow
Archer sets right what once went wrong. T'Pol takes a trip to the decontamination room.
Aug 21 - 'Gateways,' 'Invincible' & 'Divided We Fall'
Michelle Erica Green reviews the latest Star Trek Books available for late Summer reading.
July 13 - S.C.E. & Stardate 2002 Calendar
Michelle Erica Green looks at the latest three 'Star Trek: S.C.E.' eBooks, 'Interphase, Books One and Two' and 'Cold Fusion,' and the new daily Trek calendar, Stardate 2002.
July 5 - 'Section 31: Abyss'
The Federation's most secretive organisation comes back to haunt Dr. Bashir. Plus: 'Divided We Fall.'
June 25 - 'Section 31: Cloak'
'Rogue' and 'Shadow,' the first two novels in the Section 31 series, explored the secretive intelligence agency in an era when we knew about its existence. In 'Cloak,' author S.D. Perry attempts to show us how Section 31 operated during Kirk's era. Read here to see if she was successful.
June 22 - 'Endgame' Novelisation
'Voyager' may be over, but the novel relaunch is just around the corner. However, according to Michelle Erica Green, not only does the novelisation of the final episode fail to satisfy, but the new relaunch material is lacklustre.
June 18 - The Eugenics War, Volume One
The late 20th Century saw the rise of Khan Noonien Singh and a group of genetically enhanced humans - only we never noticed it. Find out why in this new book by Greg Cox.
June 6 - Voyager CCG Expansion
Decipher's new Customisable Card Game pomises: "Control the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager, exploring the Delta Quadrant where no one has gone before. Marshal the power of the treacherous Kazon and plunder enemy ships for their territory. Command the plague-ridden Vidiians, fighting to survive by stealing vital organs from your opponent's personnel." Wow. That sounds like quite the adventure - especially for a game of two-dimensional cards! But is it as much of an adventure as the box promises?
June 1 - 'Endgame'
'Endgame' leaves AntonyF eager for more Voyager! Unfortunately, he'll have to make do with repeats...
May 20 - Renaissance Man
AntonyF gives the final regular Voyager episode one of his best ratings ever.
May 19 - Section 31: Rogue and Shadow
In this new four-novel crossover series, Pocket Books attempts to explore the history of Starfleet's most secret organisation. Reviewer Michelle Erica Green analyses the first two books in the series.
May 13 - Homestead
With only a few episodes left until the series finale, the Voyager writers have been wrapping up the stories of many of the characters. AntonyF reviews 'Homestead,' which sees Neelix making a "profound re-connection" with his people.
May 13 - Divided We Fall - Chapter One: Crossfire
In her latest review, Michelle Erica Green casts a critical eye over the first volume of Wildstorm Comics' new series - 'Divided We Fall: Crossfire.' Finding it to be an engrossing read, Green praises the excellent characterisation and high-quality artwork which makes this comic a winner.
May 9 - Natural Law
'Natural law' is the third to last episode of Voyager to air before the finale. Read this review to see what special guest reviewer AntonyF thought of this episode, in which Seven of Nine and Chakotay are stranded on a primitive planet.
May 6 - Strange New Worlds IV
In this fourth volume of the annual amateur Trek writing contest, there are again many strong stories to be found. But according to Michelle Erica Green, it's time the series got a new editor and changed its rules, as otherwise the series may grow stale.
Apr 28 - Friendship One
'Author Author' is the third episode in the final set of episodes leading up to the finale. Read this review to see what special guest reviewer AntonyF thought of this episode, in which we see the effects of old Earth nuclear weapons on an alien planet.
Apr 25 - Author, Author
'Author Author' is the second episode in the final set of episodes leading up to the finale. Read this review to see what special guest reviewer AntonyF thought of this episode, in which the Doctor's status as a person is called into question.
Apr 24 - Avatar, Books One And Two
Almost two years after the television series ended, the Deep Space Nine sage continues again with the DS9 Novel Relaunch. The two-novel 'Avatar' series chronicles the first adventures of Colonel Kira and the crew of DS9 as they come under a surprise attack by a Jem'Hadar squadron.
Apr 19 - Spock vs Q, The Sequel
Alien Voices, the production company of Leonard Nimoy and John De Lancie, gained fame with the 'Spock vs Q' audiobook. In this new review, Michelle Erica Green looks at whether the sequel is as successful.
Apr 18 - Q2
'Q2' is the first episode in the final set of episodes leading up to the finale. Over the next few weeks, we will be publishing a series of special guest reviews of these episodes by AntonyF. Read this review to see what he thought of 'Q2', likely the final Trek episode featuring the recurring character of Q.
Apr 12 - Planet Killer
'The Doomsday Machine' has always been one of the Original Series' most popular episodes. In this new 3-issue comic series, writers Dean Wesley Smith & Kristine Kathryn Rusch revisit the planet killer, and Michelle Erica Green thinks they did a good job in that.
Apr 7 - 'Star Trek: Away Team'
Regular columnist Caillan Davenport takes a look at Activision's latest Star Trek release and finds it to be all form and no real substance.
Mar 28 - The Definitive Star Trek Trivia Book, Volume 2
The Doctor was a 'Living Witness' for what two warring factions? The answer to these and many other quiz questions can be found in Jill Sherwin's second Star Trek trivia book, reviewed by Michelle Erica Green.
Mar 20 - Maximum Warp, Books One And Two
What would happen to technological cultures if their power supplies were rendered useless? That's the question at the heart of Dave Galanter and Greg Brodeur's Maximum Warp, a pair of simultaneously released paperbacks. In this new review, Michelle Erica Green looks at how much power these novels have.
Mar 11 - The Genesis Wave, Book Two
In the beginning, the Genesis Device was intended to create life from lifelessness. But an unknown enemy has unleashed the matrix in a wave spreading across the Alpha Quadrant, where neither Picard's crew nor Kirk's former colleagues can prevent its deadly transformation.
Mar 11 - The Genesis Wave, Book One
Is there life after Genesis? Author John Vornholt revives the deadly menace from The Wrath of Khan, bringing back many familiar faces to try to stop it from destroying Earth.
Jan 25 - Shattered
This episode has a lot of good going for it, and the very vocal Robert Beltran finally gets a leading role, while the rest of us are treated to a look back at mostly familiar scenarios. This is as good a time as any for a mini-retrospective, especially for new viewers who may be tuning in to see the last half-season of shows.
Nov 18 - Inside Man
It's always a treat to visit the Alpha Quadrant and catch up with old friends Barclay and Troi. Unfortunately, this is a subpar effort mired by a plot in which even the masters of Starfleet are caught unawares by the Ferengi and their capitalist caper.
Nov 12 - Critical Care
My trouble in composing this review was that I was struggling to find something "clever" about "Critical Care." Unfortunately, there really isn't anything. It has a relevant social issue, which continues a fine Star Trek tradition, and the Doctor acts as you would expect him to in his situation. His deliberate poisoning of Chellick isn't terribly shocking because you know he would never allow Chellick to die. Thus, with its ridiculous abduction premise and reset-button ending, this episode is pretty much a nonevent. But it was a nicely produced nonevent.
Nov 12 - The Genesis Wave Book One
Trek Today editor Amy Hightower takes a look at 'The Genesis Wave Book One' by John Vornholt and likes what she sees... for the most part.
Nov 2 - Repression
The latest Tuvok episode comprises elements we have seen before in VGR. Tuvok is directed by mind control. Nobody can figure out that he is the bad guy. The Maquis take over the ship. Deus ex machina, it's all over again. No future Star Trek series should ever have another regular Vulcan character. No disrespect to actor Tim Russ, but it's all been done before. It's just not interesting. At least the Maquis are reintroduced and may have a pivotal role in VGR's series finale.
Oct 26 - Drive
VGR lightens up at last with this adventurous and visual-effects-laden effort, which unfortunately may take a hit from the fans for not featuring the Paris/Torres wedding on-screen. Many of the supporting cast are featured in some well-deserved moments. You can't help liking this show.
Oct 19 - Imperfection
This was a touching hour. The writers imperil Seven of Nine to make her confront her own inadequacies with dying. Her resulting conversations with Janeway and Torres provide an intriguing insight into Seven's still-Borglike thought processes. Meanwhile, the eager Icheb continues to act as an apt foil for Seven and survives not only a perfunctory clean-out of the other Borg children, but also a story line that could have predictably ended in his death.
Oct 12 - Unimatrix Zero, Part II
Letting go of any expectations that Part I may have seeded, the cliffhanger is resolved with possibly dire consequences for the integrity of the Borg Collective. The Doctor steals the show with some touching encouragement for Seven of Nine, but her romance with Axum is given short shrift.
Oct 4 - Unimatrix Zero
VGR takes a cue from TNG and ends its sixth season by having not one, but three of its regular cast assimilated by the Borg. Possibly the most affective scene involves Janeway's noticeable reluctance to leave Voyager and embark on her dangerous mission.
Sep 28 - A Paper Universe
Pocket Books recently published 'A Paper Universe', Andrew Pang's guide to creating Star Trek models through the ancient art of origami. Amy Hightower tried replicating some of the models presented in the book - read how she fared here!
July 8 - Alice
This is a largely unremarkable outing for Tom Paris. We've seen many of these story elements in other episodes. However, via Alice's manipulation, we can see for a fact that Paris has evolved from boy to man.
June 20 - Fury
The producers trod all over the VGR time line, rampantly feigning forgetfulness along with most of the characters in this ill-considered effort to reintroduce a cranky Kes.
May 2 - Muse
"Muse" is a creative, enjoyable take on personal inspiration but is particularly noteworthy because outgoing co-executive producer Joe Menosky plays with various character archetypes and surreptitiously comments on some of Voyager's many criticisms.
Apr 24 - Live Fast and Prosper
"Live Fast and Prosper" is a delightfully humorous little adventure in which Janeway must save face for the faraway Federation by cleaning up the mess of alien imposters with "nice hair," who are pretending to be Starfleet officers.
Apr 13 - Original Series DVD Volume 1
In 1999, Paramount started releasing the first Original Series episodes on DVD. Now that they've nearly published all the episodes of the Original Series' first season on DVD, we review the first set in the series, containing 'Where No Man Has Gone Before' and 'The Corbomite Maneuver'.
Apr 12 - Night
Braga and Menosky trap Voyager in a Void and write themselves into a corner with Janeway, who not only endures a bout with depression but also suffers a mutiny at the hands of friends Chakotay and Tuvok. Edzo was not too pleased with this aspect of the Season Five premiere.
Mar 18 - Good Shepherd
"Good Shepherd" is a baldfaced amalgamation of "Learning Curve" and TNG's "Lower Decks" and "Hollow Pursuits," but turns out to be the best Voyager show in weeks. Ed Hines' review is here.
Mar 11 - Child's Play
This is a complex morality tale that features a strong guest performance by Manu Intiraymi as "Icheb," but unfortunately the story suffers from yet another bad call from the compassionate Janeway.
Mar 1 - Ashes to Ashes
Kim Rhodes turns in a terrific guest star performance, but unfortunately the intended sentiment of her once-dead character's reanimation is largely lost because we had never seen her before on VGR.
Feb 16 - Collective
In the past, when Star Trek encountered the Borg we could be certain it would make for a great episode. Unfortunately, it seems that 'Collective' has broken this trend.
Feb 9 - Tsunkatse
'Tsunkatse' was without a doubt the most controversial Voyager episode shown this season, causing a massive fan outcry. Now it turns out that this may have been entirely undeserved, according to Ed Hines' review of the episode.
Feb 2 - Memorial
Trek Nation reviewer Ed Hines isn't at all happy with Voyager's unwillingness to take any risks with its stories.
Jan 19 - Blink Of An Eye
Bringing back memories of the Original Series episode 'Wink of an Eye', this week's new Voyager episode is well-received by Ed Hines.
Jan 12 - Fair Haven
After the long series of winter repeats, Voyager returns with the new episode 'Fair Haven', dealing with Janeway's romantic endeavours on the holodeck.
Dec 2 - Ultimate Drek
Before Voyager's special 'Pathfinder' episode, UPN also aired the 'Ultimate Trek' sweeps special, hosted by Jason Alexander. Jeff Godemann was not impressed, to say the least.
Dec 1 - Pathfinder
'Pathfinder' was one of the most highly anticipated Voyager episodes of the season, featuring both Reginald Barclay and Deanna Troi, as well as Voyager's first live contact with Starfleet. Read Ed Hines' review of this important episode here!
Nov 24 - The Voyager Conspiracy
Star Trek meets the X-Files in this week's new Voyager episode, 'The Voyager Conspiracy'. In his review of the episode, Ed Hines wonders if the plotline wasn't a bit too unrealistic.
Nov 17 - One Small Step
After last week's slightly disappointing 'Dragon's Teeth', Voyager managed to surprise Ed Hines with the remarkably great 'One Small Step'.
Oct 23 - The Greeks
Now that his work on Deep Space Nine has ended, actor Marc Alaimo (Gul Dukat) is currently performing as Agamemnon in 'The Greeks', a play at the Los Angeles Odyssey Theatre. Recently, regular Trek Nation contributor Karen Comer saw the play, and she was kind enough to write a review of it!
Oct 20 - Alice
The first series of new Voyager episodes this season ends with 'Alice', as next week UPN will be repeating 'Dark Frontier. Click here to read what Trek Nation reviewer Ed Hines thought about the episode!
Oct 13 - Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy
A Voyager comedy success in which a snoopy alien peeks in on the Doctor's daydreams, believing them to be real. Edzo is still singing the Doctor's creative lyrics from the teaser, in addition to the praises of Robert Picardo for such a bang-up job. The review is here.
Oct 6 - Barge of the Dead
Torres must come to terms with unresolved feelings for her mother while embarking on a spiritual quest to find peace within herself. This episode jibes well with events from previous Torres episodes, considering that outgoing co-executive producer Ron Moore had such a brief indoctrination to Voyager's characters. The review is here.
Sep 22 - Equinox, Part Two
After the long summer hiatus and the endless series of reruns, Voyager finally returns with a new episode - 'Equinox, Part Two'. Read what Ed Hines had to say about the episode by going here!
June 8 - Free Enterprise
Now showing in limited release in several cinemas in Los Angeles, 'Free Enterprise' is a low-budget, indepentently-produced comedy starring William Shatner as, well, William Shatner. Dennis Sabre went to see the movie, and here you can read his review.
June 1 - Second DS9 Finale Screening Report
After the first exclusive screening on Thursday the 27th of August, the Los Angeles Museum of Television & Radio organised another 'What You Leave Behind' showing. Present at the event was Scotto, whose review of the episode you can read here.
May 28 - First DS9 Finale Review
On the 27th of May, the Museum of Television & Radio in Los Angeles organised the first public screening of 'What You Leave Behind', the Deep Space Nine finale. Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga was one of the people lucky enough to attend the event, and here you can read his exclusive review!
