Three Trek Nation Features

Over the past few days, several new features have been put up at the Trek Nation. First of all, regular Nation contributor and SyFyWorld webmaster Michael Hinman has written an article about the origins of Seven of Nine, attempting to answer several questions Trek fans have been asking ever since the character was introduced:

Seven of Nine, since her introduction to Star Trek: Voyager in 1997, has become one of Star Trek's major mainstream celebrities, joining the likes of Capt. Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy and Scotty. Her popularity continues to grow leaps and bounds, and for many different reasons: beauty, talent, and great storylines just to name a few.

But the big question is how the heck did we get Seven of Nine? Why is it that her existence seems to contradict everything we know about Star Trek and the Borg? When are we ever going to get any answers to these questions?

It's simple. The answer is right in front of you. Simply look at Modern Trek events and extrapolate the effect those events had on the overall Star Trek universe.

You can find the full article by going here. After reading it, feel free to comment about it in this thread at the BBS, or send in your comments to

Secondly, Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga has put up his report of Day Two of last week's Grand Slam convention. The report contains transcripts of the appearances by Nicole deBoer (Ezri Dax), Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax), Robert Picardo (the Holodoc), Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris), Tim Russ (Tuvok) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi). The final report contains a few news bits about upcoming episodes, repeated here:

  • In "Life Line," the upcoming episode featuring the return of Barclay and Troi, Troi gets to interact with The Doctor. Marina complained that she didn't get to play opposite with any VOYAGER castmembers in "Pathfinder" so that was resolved with the upcoming episode.

  • "Life Line" was Bob's idea. Two EMHs (The Doctor and his creator), like the two Datas (Data and Lore) in TNG.

  • In "Life Line," Troi gets to lose her temper and she eats ice cream again.

  • Jeff's full report can be found here. His report of the RanDoM Flight Champagne Cruise will be put up tomorrow, and will be reachable via this page.

    Finally, and this has actually been up for a while already, but Fred Shedian has written a new Take On Trek column, looking at the recent Series V 'Birth of the Federation' reports.
