Hello World!

Happy 2007! Between my 40th birthday, Chanukah, Christmas and New Year's, it's been a long time since I wrote this column and so much has happened that I don't know where to start. I've been to Gettysburg and to A Dickens of a Christmas on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire and to the Delaware Museum of Natural History and to Fort Christina. I've seen winter lights at Seneca Creek State Park in Maryland and Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. I've seen Happy Feet, Eragon, Night at the Museum and various other movies picked by my children, though I still haven't made it to Dreamgirls, which I've been waiting for on film since I was around my son's age.

Trek prospects for 2007 look good. It appears likely that J.J. Abrams' proposed feature film will be greenlit and hopefully will begin production before summer. There are also numerous fan films available on the internet, many written by, directed by or starring people previously involved in professional Star Trek productions. There are new comic books and novels in the works. Now that we've celebrated the 40th anniversary of the original series, we can celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Next Generation.
