Hope she's okay. Not like her to miss the announcements of next season's schedule.

Rumor has it she's been active on Facebook, so perhaps she has just (wisely) broken the TrekBBS habit.

I think the TrekBBS would be a sadder place w/out Temis...I don't always agree with her-but I love reading her takes on things.

^^ That's what somebody in Misc said, so I hope it's true.

I agree. I don't agree with her always, either, but it's an honest kind of disagreement.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Here's a teaser trailer for Helix and some reporting from Comic-Con on what Ron Moore and some of the other producers and writers had to say about the show.

Mark Stern, Syfy's President of Original Content, said the following at the Comic-Con panel for Helix (via io9 again):

We are returning to more scripted shows. You'll see new scripted series and miniseries over the next two years. We're really embracing our science fiction roots. And we're acquiring more scripted pilots, and going back into the big miniseries department again. We've signed more series [like Helix], a drama with meaty science fiction hook. It fits with Being Human, which is how we'll air [Helix] at the beginning of the year.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

That's good to hear -- I hope they stick with it. At the moment, with Defiance and Warehouse 13 done with their seasons, every scripted drama currently airing on Syfy is an import from Canada or England. And W13 is ending next year. True, they've still got Being Human and Haven, neither of which I watch, but the original scripted shows have been getting a bit thin on the ground. So this is just what I wanted to hear from Syfy -- more scripted shows, embracing their science fiction roots. Hopefully that means a space show or two sometime in the next couple of years.

Very happy to hear about that. Isn't Syfy doing Brian Fuller's Moon show, or did that not get picked up?

High Moon was ordered to pilot in April. We should hear casting news pretty soon.

So would that make it a show for next summer or next fall?
