Hello World!

Those of you who remember the classic news headline 'Quantum' Composer Leaps To 'Enterprise', may be interested that said composer, Velton Ray Bunch, scored last night's episode.

I must admit I was getting a bit worried as the episodes passed by that he wasn't actually working on the series, and the report had been wrong, especially since the headline was so, er, memorable. I certainly copped enough flack for it from certain parties.

  • Tim Russ Makes Good Money
    Voyager's Tim Russ (Tuvok) was interviewed about fame, fortune and fans. "Oh, it's strange sometimes," he said. "I'd say I get recognized 12 to 15 times a day. And you do get these super fans coming up to you in stores and parking lots with their silly-ass questions. You know, you're standing next to your trunk with a bag of groceries trying to explain something about dilithium crystals or a holodeck experience someone had."

  • Hello World!
    Christian announced that a major change was in the works - TrekNation's move to its own dedicated server.
