While cruising the tubes (the late Senator Stevens would be proud) I ran across a really cool video from 1990 featuring DeForest Kelley & the TNG cast / crew. Described as a news segment for Primetime Live, the video features Dee giving us a tour of the inner workings of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The video quality is pretty terrible, but it's definitely worth a watch. Man, Dee, we miss you.
With his enormous contributions to Star Trek (in practically all of its forms), we fans are thrilled to see Herman Zimmerman get recognition for his efforts. On February 2nd he will receive the Lifetime Achievement Honor from the Art Directors Guild.
Wired's Underwire blog recently got the chance to talk with Ronald D. Moore about his experience on Star Trek: The Next Generation. They cover the full gambit of Ron's time on TNG and it's a fantastic interview that's sure-to-please any TNG or Ron D. Moore fan. We grabbed a quick excerpt of our favorite part of the article, where Ron describes one of his first encounters with Gene. You can check it out below. Be sure to read the full article here.

Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) has been up to a bunch of new stuff lately. (How’s that for a totally professional sounding opener?) Part of the reason for all of the new activities is the excitement of TNG’s 25th anniversary, this year. Because of this milestone celebration she has begun attending conventions again, much to fans’ delight. You see, she’s been hard to find on the convention circuit all of these years mostly because of her devotion to theatre and the craft of acting.
