Today on Gilmore Girls

Lazy Hazy Crazy Days
Who is Rory dating? And who is Lorelai dating? And is Lorelai is in love with Luke? At least they make up and stop shouting, so yay.

Star Trek Today

Operation: Annihilate!
Mass insanity plauges Deneva, and Kirk's brother and sister-in-law are killed by the beings that cause it. Spock is also infected, but luckily McCoy figures out how to undo the infection before Spock goes insane too. Unluckily, the treatment involves bright light that blinds Spock. McCoy figures out that you only need UV to undo the infection, the population of Deneva is cured, and Spock's eyesight is saved by a convenient Vulcan inner eyelid.

Today on Buffy

A New Man
A neglected Giles gets turned into a Fyarl demon, and has to pay Spike 200 dollars to get anyone to help him out. Spike smashes Giles' car, Buffy stabs Giles by accident, and Ethan Rayne ends up imprisoned in Area 51.

The I in Team
Buffy joins the Initative, and asks so many questions that Professor Walsh tries to kill her. Riley believes that Buffy's dead for about two seconds, but luckily Buffy chooses that moment to call Professor Walsh and tell her that her murder plan sucked. Spike gets shot with a tracer and pays Giles to remove it before the Initiative can find it. And Willow spends the night with Tara... doing what now?

May the best fanficcer win.

Star Trek Today

Descent I
Data gets angry, the Borg get individuality, and Lore is their new leader. Oh, and Lore and Data are planning to destroy the Federation. So Data's evil again. Anyone else think he should be stripped of command rank at this point?

Today on Buffy: The Vampire Slayer

Something Blue
Buffy decides to marry Spike, Giles goes blind, Xander gets chased by a horde of demons, and it's all Willow's fault.

No one in Sunnydale can speak, so they all buy dry erase boards. Buffy and Riley figure out each other's identities. An akward scene ensues.

The akward scene resumes. Buffy decides not to date Riley, but then she changes her mind.

Bat'leth confiscated

This was brought to our attention on a message board post. Yeah. Seriously.

Star Trek Today

In the Hands of the Prophets

The DS9 season 1 finale is possibly one of the most complex plots on DS9. A murder investigation, a conspiracy to kill a major Bajoran religous leader, protest against secular education in Keiko O'Brien's school, and the beginning of Vedek Winn's quest to be the next Kai.

Today's Movie

Jodie Foster goes to space and rambles for a while. Among other things.

Trek of the Day

We have engaged the Borg.
-Captain Picard,
The Best of Both Worlds I

Today's Star Trek episode was "The Best of Both Worlds I", which always makes me think of summer vacation. Or, more specifically, the summer I turned seven and spent the entire summer obsessing over what happened after Riker said, "Mr. Worf, Fire." Which if you don't know, I'm not going to tell you now.

In nerdy news today, a new star trek fanfic event began yesterday. All information is on this website, and I have yet to decide if I will be participating or not. I'm leaning toward yes.

In an attempt to drive me insane, a poll has been started on one of the Star Trek boards to determine who was the best piece of meat on the NX-01. Seriously.

Have a good day!
