  • This is not a member of Star Trek fandom we can be particularly proud of, but an AP article mentions that Timothy McVeigh is a Star Trek fan. The Oklahoma City bomber, who killed 168, corresponded for two years with a reporter, and the letters will soon be published in Esquire Magazine. "Lest you think I'm only a mindless cartoon addict," he wrote, "I will admit that I am a Star Trek junkie, too (whenever one of this unit's 'panic alarms' goes off, I start screaming: 'Red Alert! Shields up!') (Hey it gives me something to do! A man has to exercise his vocal cords on something!)."

  • S.D. Perry, writer of the upcoming 'Avatar' DS9 Relaunch novels, has begun posting on Psi Phi's Star Trek Books BBS.

  • Jamahl Epsicokhan at Star Trek: Hypertext has put up an editorial on the XFL, the troubled football league set up by NBC and UPN.
