Hello World!

Now that 'Fury' has aired, there are only three episodes left before the endless rerun season. Looking back at last year, there fortunately wasn't an enourmous drop in the amount of news we had during summer, but things definitely were a lot more quiet. For a change, I'm actually welcoming that - I still have a 50-item 'to do' list, and if all goes according to plan we'll also be able to expand the Nation with one or two new sites in the very near future. After the nearly three months I spent promising and hyping the new TrekToday design, I won't mention exactly what those new sites will be, but hopefully that won't be necessary either, as I'm still aiming for the first one to open in no more than two weeks. I'll let you know, of course :-).

Trek BBS Today

Below are some of the topics currently being discussed at the Trek BBS:

-Read da Woim's review and Dalendax's review of 'Fury'. Then talk about some of the time travel problems in the episode, Robert Beltran's performance and a nit involving the fact there should be no Holoprojectors in Engineering.

-Did Voyager's Flashback start the Excelsior campaign?

More topics can be found at the Trek BBS!

Looking back, as several of you pointed out in email, it would probably have been better to separate episodes and movies - several people noted they did own all the movies, but had none of the episodes, which was not something that could be reflected in this poll.

Please also participate in our new poll, asking what you thought of yesterday's 'Fury':
