Majel Barrett Roddenberry 1932-2008

On the 18th of December 2008, we lost "The First Lady of Star Trek" otherwise known as Majel Barrett Roddenberry. Although I had only met her once, and never had the opportunity to have her on any of our shows or interview her, she touched the lives of many Star Trek fans, myself included.

Majel passed away on the morning of December 18, 2008. Known as the First Lady of Star Trek. She will be greatly missed.

Unfortunately, this is not very good photograph, but it was among the very few taken that day (thank goodness with the advent of digital photography today the issue of limited shots due to film on hand is an issue of the past) - Louis

New Episodes of the Sonic Newsdriver are Coming

We know many of you may be asking when will there be another episode of The Sonic Newsdriver podcast. It's been on a little hiatus as of late (yes, 'hiatus' is a bad word for Doctor Who fans). The good news is that it will be returning soon. What may change is the frequency of episodes and/or length. This will be addressed in the forthcoming episode.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience.
