According to Shatner, Barrett-Roddenberry was the "the perfect companion, the perfect person to play opposite him [Leonard Nimoy]. She appeared on the scene and I thought 'Wow, that's great casting."<p><li><A class="link" HREF="">TrekWeb</A> reports that IDW will publish a trade paperback omnibus of the entire first series of Marvel Comics' <i>Star Trek: The Original Series</i> comic books (minus the <i>Star Trek: The Motion Picture</i> adaptation.)

The episode did start off with a bang and provided a few highlights on the way, but the rest of the episode didn't deliver as well as the opening teaser."<p><li><A class="link" HREF="">The Shatner Project</A> offered a video of William Shatner singing to the whales while on a whale watch with his family last year. There was no word on how the whales felt about his singing, but Shatner enjoyed poking fun at himself. "I'm a big whale," he sang. "You gotta love him," said a family member. "Or throw him overboard," replied Shatner. </ul><center></center>

Re: Star Trek News Bullets
I took a peek at the link to the updated history section, and found that the heading for it is 'The Path to 2409'. Can anyone tell me what the significance of that particular date is?

Re: Star Trek News Bullets
It's the date gameplay begins? Don't know much beyond that, sorry.

Re: Star Trek News Bullets
Thanks, aside from the fact that date is in the 25th century, I thought maybe it was the date of the 'Nero era' from the new movie.
