  • David Henderson has updated Psi Phi's Voyager page with an explanation of why he thinks the upcoming Voyager episode 'Destiny' will be retitled. "[There] has already been a Star Trek episode with that title," he said. "DS9's 'Destiny' aired in February, 1995, during DS9's third season. Another Voyager episode, 'Wink of an Eye', was re-titled after the producers discovered that there was an episode of the original series by that name, although they made only a slight modification to 'Blink of an Eye'. I therefore believe it is likely that Voyager's producers will change the title of their episode 'Destiny' before it airs, even if it's only a small change such as 'The Destiny' or 'Destinies'."

  • The program for the FedCon 9 convention, taking place in early April in Bonn, Germany, has just been posted on the convention's official web site. Thanks go out to the German Star Trek Index for this!
