Hello World!

Imagine this: you're stuck on a train, in the hot Australian summer. The air-conditioning breaks down, and soon the carriage begins to feel like an oven. Then dozens of sweaty, noisy schoolboys pour into said carriage. Welcome to my afternoon.

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items on October 31, 2000:

  • Kenneth Biller Talks Season Seven
    Voyager executive producer Kenneth Biller talked about his plans for the show's seventh and final season. "We've decided to see how we can resolve certain long-standing arcs for various characters," he said. "We're certainly not doing a soap opera for this seventh season, but there is going to be a slightly more serialized quality to it. We're doing a little bit more of that."

  • Fred B. Phillips Memorabilia Auction
    Among the items up for grabs at the Fred B. Phillips auction were a plaster "life mask" of William Shatner's (James T. Kirk) face and the rubber cast made from the head and upper chest of Persis Khambatta (Ilia).
