Hello World!

Apologies for yesterday's update, which was somewhat shorter than it should have been. This was mostly due to me finally turning off the computer in frustration, after I had to retype the final 'Gaming Bullets' item three times - the first two times I forgot to enter a news description for the item, so the news updater returned an error, and when I pressed the back-button it turned out that Internet Explorer 4.0 doesn't then automatically include all the text you typed in a form again! This evening I'll definitely install version 5.0, but yesterday night I really was too tired for that. Expect more news today.

Poll Results

Below are the results of the most recent TrekToday poll:

Have you ever read the 'New Frontier' novels?
No 37.7% - (139 Votes)
Yes, but only a few 27.1% - (100 Votes)
Yes, all of them! 23% - (85 Votes)
What is 'New Frontier'? 11.9% - (44 Votes)

Total Votes: 368

This is probably not completely unexpected, but it would seem that Brannon Braga's recent assertion that most fans don't read the New Frontier novels does appear to be at least somewhat true. Anyway, please also participate in our new poll, asking what you think about a Captain Sulu series:
