Hello World!

I have absolutley nothing to say today.

I've been so busy working on restoring TrekBBS member profiles and writing articles for the sites, that I've hardly had a moment to collect my thoughts.


Normal Service Will Be Resumed As Soon As Possible.

Trek Two Years Ago

TrekToday ran only one important headline on Saturday June 12th, 1999:

  • Farewell Bones

    DeForrest Kelley known to millions around the world as Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy died after an extended illness. He was 79. "He represented humanity and it fitted him well," said Leonard Nimoy (Spock). "He was a decent, loving, caring partner and will be deeply missed." You can find Kelley's full filmography here.
