No Google Doodle for Star Trek's 50th. Bummer.

That's right! It's TIME!

Ever since I was in high school, it always bothered me that Ballantine Books changed the cover design for the Star Trek Log series of books -- Alan Dean Foster's adaptations of the Star Trek Animated Series scripts -- before they had completed the run. I've always hated how jarring and unnecessary that change was.

Anyway, I decided to fix it. So here are my covers for Star Trek Log Nine ("Bem") and Star Trek Log Ten ("Slaver Weapon").

This Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday come out to the University of SC, Union and join us for a little bit of murder, a little bit of mayhem, and a whole lot of fun as we unravel the mystery of the "Murder on Apple Road"! Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students. Advance tickets are available at the Arts Council, Something Special, from any cast member. Or you can try your luck at the door. Showtimes are 7pm Friday and Saturday; 3pm Sunday.

To put you in the mood, here's a little mystery music by yours truly, with special thanks to vocalists Denise Hudson, Tom Giarrosso, JoAnn Abbott, and Tim Leigh.

Here's your Trek fix. 
Notable points about this episode:
* Colin Baker guest stars. You may remember him as The Doctor (Doctor Who)
* Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troi from STNG) provides the voice of the Computer. While Majel Rodenberry is sorely missed, they couldn't have found a better replacement.
* As usual for STC, Chris Doohan (son of late actor James Doohan) fills his fathers' shoes in the role of Scotty.
* Many characters from prior episodes return. You'll just have to see.
* The title is superbly chosen

NPR reports that 1 in 4 Americans think the Sun goes around the Earth. So did Sherlock Holmes. For a great many people this bit of information is of no practical use whatsoever.

C'mon, Canada... you're supposed to be better than this. A 20-year extension of copyrights for corporate interests is just a case of "monkey-see, monkey-do".

"The term of related rights must reflect a balance between  incentives, market freedom and costs for society. This balance will be upset when terms are extended for the mere reason that content subject to expiration still has market value. The public domain is not merely a graveyard of recordings that have lost all value in the market place. It is also an essential source of inspiration to subsequent creators, innovators and distributors."
