Minutes: Summarized and approved.
- The discussion of quantum universes during the reading of the minutes has been barred from all future meetings.
- Specific disorder ensues.
Recruitment and Relations Committee:
No Report Committee:
- "Wesley Gets the Point" from Star Trek CCG is the Card of the Week. Wesley dies, people cheer.
- Ryan has been doing some lucrative card buying on ebay. Hopefully, there are no Ferengi on the other end.
- DecipherCon will take place in the near future, sometime in October or November.
- A foil version of the 34th Rule of Acquisition will be passed out at the con, and only at the con, which has irritated many collectors.
- The report was spelled out on little slips of paper, and Adam tried to get a cheer going.
- It's very hard to get a group of people to be emphatic when saying the word "no."
- No report.
- The report was met with cold disgust.
- The idea of movies on the third Saturday of the month didn't pan out, due to standard beauracracy; we'll have to do this on a case-by-case basis.
- The first movie will be Saturday, Spetember 23, from 3:30 to 6.
- Movie suggestions for this date included Hardware Wars, A Clockwork Orange, and Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.
- A Clockwork Orange was selected through fairly unanimous consent.
- We still have a committee!
- Any good slogan suggestions? No. What did we expect?
- There seems to be a problem putting the minutes up on the web, but it should be resolved in the next few days.
Chief of Operations:
- The current balance is $142.09.
- The Chief is adding a section to the website for Star Trek comic books, linked to their vendors.
- Yet more money for us!
- Carl is Acting First Officer this week, due to the conspicuous absence of the First Officer.
- A new record was set for leaving CHM 161 - 10 miuntes early!
- We have mail. (Enough with the snickers and AOL jokes, you in the back...)
- We got a flyer to renew our organization by Friday. Nice big window of opportunity there...
- [Item contributed by the Chief deleted for security reasons, as well as for the common good]
- The Captain will complete and return the form, so the club will exist for another semester.
- We also got propaganda from the Coffeeshop Series, asking if they could borrow our couch. Everyone was pretty sure they wouldn't want it.
- Propaganda came from the Adopt-a-School program. If we participate, we would like to adopt MIT.
- Out now from Joe's Comics is Midnight Nation #1, a new series by J. Michael Straczynski.
- It's kind of a mix of horror/gore/scifi and as such, is NOT approved by the Comics Code! Woo-hoo!
- For DS9 comics, we have N-Vector #4, available now, where the characters look nothing like on the show.
- On the CBS smash hit Big Brother, a banner was recently flown on the houseguests' behalf reading "Live long and prosper". Apparently, CBS is now aiming for the Vulcan demographic, even though they won't get to see it for a couple of decades...
- Speaking of reality shows, NBC has plans to "launch" a new series about people attending space camp, where the winner gets to go into space aboard Mir.
- There was a general consensus that such a prize would be better relegated to the losers, but such is TV. Or there would have been, but the Comm Officer started off on a tangent that led to total silence and confusion.
- Other Star Trek comics due later this month:
- "The Killing Shadows", a mini-TNG spinoff set after First Contact.
- "Double Time", a New Frontier comic due out September 27th.
- John DeLancie will be guest-starring in an upcoming episode of Andromeda. Possible promo: "Q...with Hercules...in SPAAAACE!"
- "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda" is, by the way, based on some of Roddenberry's notes regarding such a series.
- Also, there is an upcoming sequel to the "Spock vs. Q" audiobook.
- Adam made a comment about the nature of the sequel, which was pronounced as "wrong" by the Chief. So now we have documented evidence that Adam can be "wrong."
- Voyager is in syndication! Repeats are being shown weeknights at 9 on UPN; they are currently showing second-season episodes. Exact schedules can be found on the Psi Phi website. Go check it out!
- The Babylon 5 Scifiography on the Sci Fi Channel has been delayed; we will wait patiently...for now.
- James Cameron's Dark Angel premieres on FOX October 3rd from 8-10. Consequently, there will be no Judge Judy that night, and the people rejoice.
- The Dark Angel premiere will be repeated the following Monday at 7 pm, allowing Dark Angel to be up against Angel, Touched by an Angel, and Charlie's Angels.
- Back to books; Buffy: The Monster Book is now available - in color! The monsters inside are both scary and cool.
- A Buffy book, Pretty Maids All in a Row, is due out next month. It will feature Spike and Dru, and will somehow get them involved in the Second World War.
- The season premiere of Buffy was discussed. Ideas indicate some sort of Buffy vs. Dracula scenario.
- It has been rumored that Christopher Liem of Dracula fame, has been recruited for Star Wars Episode 2. This leads to fancied musings about vampire Ewoks.
- Anytime vampire Ewoks are mentioned is usually a good time to close the meeting.
Adjournment: 10:47 (now)pm
