Hello World!

Last week I'd only just gotten back from vacation, and this week my kids have already started school. One is in third grade and the other just started a magnet math program in middle school, which means that for the first time he is dealing with buses, gym class and rude teenage girls.

I miss the Olympics already...partly for their own sake and partly because evening television has been taken over by the Republican National Convention. I'd like to go see Vanity Fair but don't expect to have an opportunity for a couple of weeks, at which point I will also want to go see Wimbledon (even if it's the silliest movie about tennis ever made, I am going for the cast). So I guess Hero is likely going to wait till DVD.

The photos from "Beam Me Up Scotty" and all the reviews of the original Star Trek in regard to the box sets are making me nostalgic. Every time Manny Coto talks about making Enterprise more like the original series, I feel like sitting down and watching the original series, which I haven't done except for isolated episodes in a long, long time. When I was my son's age I watched Star Trek at 8 every night with my father in local reruns. I'd love to do that with my sons.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items from September 2002:

  • Berman: More Action & Humour In Season Two
    "We're trying to add a little bit more action and a little bit more humour. We're trying to get it a little sexier this season," executive producer Rick Berman promised for Enterprise's upcoming sophomore year.

  • Stewart Shows Off Trek X Trailer
    Patrick Stewart was a guest at the 60th World Science Fiction Convention, where he showed off production stills from the upcoming tenth Trek movie as well as two teaser trailers.

  • Moore Talks TNG Season Four
    Former Next Generation co-producer Ron Moore admitted that he had a problem getting script approval for his original idea for "Family", which was to have Picard involved in trying to repair areas of Earth damaged by industrialization years before - an image that went counter to Gene Roddenberry's vision of 24th century Earth as idyllic.
