  • Following the recent news that Celestis, Inc., the company that also brought Gene Roddenberry's cremated remains in orbit around Earth, will soon also start burying people on the Moon, AP has sent out a photo of one of the caskets that would contain the cremated remains of about 200 people.

  • David Henderson at Psi Phi has updated the Voyager syndication schedule until the beginning of June.

  • Creation Entertainment has put up photos from the Grand Slam 2000 Convention, which took place in early April in California. Thanks go out to Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga for this!

  • Also new are several photos from the Grand Slam convention of Nicole deBoer (Ezri Dax), courtesy Nicole deBoer Kastner.

  • A recent issue of the Hollywood Reporter contained a review of 'Gepetto', the Disney TV musical featuring Brent Spiner (Data) and René Auberjonois (Odo). Reviewer Barry Garron called Spiner "marvelously malevolent" and Auberjonois "deliriously funny", and also praised the film itself for its "fine performances, delightful set design and smart direction." Thanks go out to Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga for this!

  • The Hollywood Reporter also contained a review by Kirk Honeycutt of 'Luminarias', a new independent film starring Robert Beltran (Chakotay). Honeycutt liked the romantic comedy, but also wondered whether there would be a market for a film mostly directed at Latino women.

  • And finally, Entertainment Weekly awarded 'Gepetto' just a D+, saying nothing about Spiner or Auberjonois. Thanks, again, to Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga for this!
