Hello World!

After my West Wing rant on Wednesday, I was pleased that I wasn't the only person who was so bitterly disappointed in "Swiss Diplomacy".

Television Without Pity's Deborah titled her review "WTF? Most likely to be remembered as 'The One Sorkin Didn't Write'". Laughing through her recap made the pain of watching the episode bearable.

My computer has just crashed four times in a row, so I'm not particularly inclined to tempt fate and continue using this horrible machine anymore. However, I will say that we are starting up the Trek Nation mailbag again (the last official edition was published over three years ago), so if you wish to share your thoughts on our reviews, articles, news, Star Trek in general, or why I should shut up about The West Wing, send an email to

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items on May 23 & 24, 2001:

  • First Enterprise TV Promo Online
    UPN aired the first trailer for the next Trek series, Enterprise, during the Voyager finale, "Endgame". The promo said: "Before Janeway and Picard, before Spock and Kirk, the Star Trek saga began." The omission of Sisko sparked a fan outcry and the Deep Space Nine captain was included in a second version of the promo.

  • Final Voyager Finale Clips
    Four clips from "Endgame" were released on the same day the premiere aired in the United States. In this final TrekToday Voyager spoiler report, we provided transcripts of the video clips, which included a Chakotay/Seven of Nine love scene and Voyager negotiating its way past a Borg cube.

  • 'Endgame' Scores Highest Ratings In Four Years
    The Voyager finale achieved an average overnight rating of 8.3 and an audience share of 13%, the show's largest audience since "Scorpion, Part II" at the start of season four. The first hour of "Endgame" was actually the most-watched programme on television from 8:00-9:00 p.m.
