Ted Jaracz passed away June 9, 2010

Governing Body bigwig Ted Jaracz passed away in the early morning hours of June 9, 2010. Jaracz was one of the main characters who was largely responsible for not changing the 'two eye witness rule' when it came to child abuse. I hope he's being held accountable for all the deaths, broken families and pain, that he has helped cause. Maybe, just maybe, the organization will change for the better.

New Generation Understanding gives further reasons not to watch Star Trek reruns

The new light on the Generation gives us even further reason not to watch Star Trek re-runs.

The title "Star Trek - The Next Generation" misleads people about the real meaning of what is meant by a "Generation".

Evidently the lives of Starfleet officers who served aboard USS Enterprise NCC-1701 would overlap with those who served aboard the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. Since Spock and McCoy's life overlapped with Picard's, they were contemporaries, and thus of the same generation.

If the producers of the show were truly sincere in advocating the truth, they would have titled the show "Star Trek - The Contemporary Overlapping Generation Continued".

My dear brothers and sisters: Let us be resolved never to be deceived the by the deceptive entertainment of this world!
