Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I'm getting published in Salon. Later tonight my State-of-the-Trek piece on Star Trek Enterprise will go up in the Arts and Entertainment section. I saw it in pre-publication form, panicked and thought it was awful, then calmed down after reading a few funny bits to Leonard.
I'm pretty nervous, as this is probably going to be the most-read piece I've ever written. It's like being on stage but you don't even have to be there for the audience to throw rotten tomatoes at you.
