If you have a TV, or if you just like reading about stuff that's on TV, TV Guide had a cover story about Enterprise,
debuting on UPN this fall.
It's a prequel show to Star Trek, but now's not the time for me to scream
The article is worth a read. There's pictures galore, including the deck of
the ship, the whole cast, including Lead Guy Jonathan Archer, played by Scott
"Oh Boy" Bakula, and Hot Vulcan Chick Whose Name Sounds Like Toothpaste, T'Pol,
played by Jolene Blalock.
RevSF big shot Shane Ivey says, "T'Pol, the Hot Vulcan Chick, would look downright
pixie-like except for the fact that in the chestage department she appears
to top Seven of Nine (so to speak). Her outfit isn't as tight, but I'm
sure they'll see the light when the ratings need to pick up."
Trek big shot Rick Berman says that the "needed to bring back the wonder
and excitement and scariness of outer space." Longtime Trek writer-producer
Brannon Braga says, "In the last two spin-offs, our characters were not where
they wanted to be . . . But Captain Archer is dying to get into space."
In this time period, there is no Prime Directive yet. John Billingsley, the
guy who'll play Dr. Phlox, said: "Getting rid of that damn Directive helps a
lot." I can dig that.
Trek's burned us hard before. They've smacked us around and taken our
lunch money. But I'm kind of looking forward to see what they've got going on
I must have a fever.
