- Despite the problems at Fandom.com, the latest edition of columnist Ariel's weekly 'Subspace Echeos' article series is now online. This week she looks at the recent Sun Series V rumors and a Wiliam Shatner (Kirk) charity auction:
Creation Entertainemnt are currently running an auction with items from William Shatner`s Private Memorabilia Collection. The proceeds of the auction will go to Bill`s Hollywood Charity Horseshow. The auction runs from March 30th to April 15th and, according the java advertising banner, will include both Star Trek and non-Trek items. The first lot, which will be on auction until April 6th, is all Star Trek stuff, autographed by Shatner. Although there isn`t a large quantity of items offered, the quality and rarity of the items more than makes up for it. I have to tell you, some of this stuff made me drool. I especially like the autographed limited edition Kirk plaque and the two Franklin Mint starships (Stargazer and Excelsior). I`m not even attempting to go for any of this stuff, however: I know I can`t afford it. In one day the plaque went from an opening bid of $20.00 to a bid of $61.00 and the reserve hasn`t even been met!
- Meanwhile, Julia Houston, About.com's Star Trek guide, has posted the latest edition of her weekly feature article series. This week, entitled 'Neelix: Not the Wesley Crusher of Voyager', she looks at the evolution of Neelix from ship's clown to ship's favourite uncle:
And ultimately, it must be admitted, Neelix himself never fit in. Robert Picardo has stated many times that Neelix is the "Johnny Carson" of the USS Voyager, a position he takes on quite literally during "Investigations," with his "A Briefing with Neelix," to somewhat so-so results. His position on Voyager has been that of observer, of outsider desperately trying to fit in, to find a place to belong, to help. In more than one alternative future we've seen him as a security officer, and while it may be Naomi who keeps talking about how she wants to be the "Captain's Assistant," it's really been Neelix who's had that job all along.
