Editor Adam Bailey just sent out Volume V, Issue 113 of the Optical Data Network, his bi-weekly Star Trek newsletter. As usual, below is a summary of the Trek news that we didn't catch the first time around:

  • Robert Wise, who directed and is currently recutting 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture', was recently awarded the Society of Operating Cameramen's Governors' Award.

  • Totally Kate! has a reprint of an interview with Kate Mulgrew (Kathryn Janeway) that originally appeared in the Toronto Saturday Star from December 1980, nearly twenty years ago.

  • People Magazine has posted an article looking at how 'Bensom' alumni René Auberjonois (Odo) and Ethan Phillips (Neelix) both ended up on Star Trek.

  • Allie Cahill at TV Guide has posted an interview with Susanna Thompson (the Borg Queen), talking about her role on 'Once And Again'.

  • And Fintan O'Toole at the Irish Times recently interviewed Wallace Shawn (Zek) about his newest plays.

  • Wired's Lakshmi Chaudhry has written an article about the origins of so-called 'slash' fan-fiction in Star Trek.

  • Articles on the traveling Federation Science Exhibit can be found here at the Irish Times, written by Rachel Donnelly, and here at the Independent, written by Greg Hurst.

  • The Italian magazinee L'Espresso recently gave away copies of Star Trek episodes on CD-Rom, in an effort for the readers of that magazine to learn English. Italy apparently has one of the smallest percentages of English speakers in Europe.

  • On Friday, the the Kansas City Symphony presented 'Space -- A Musical Odyssey', also including Star Trek music.

More news can of course be found in the actual new ODN issue. If you aren't yet subscribed to it, you can do so here.
