  1. A big “Thank You” to the Poulter Manor folks for the continual updates & improvements to – Adding the “New Releases” section on the main page is a much easier way to keep on top of all the new content & it’s great to be able to get to it with a single click!

    I had no idea Bob Wilkins had done a Star Trek documentary – I can’t wait to watch his take on it, especially since he was right there, documenting the very beginning of grassroots Trek fandom… And a ‘Wayne’s World’-esque “We’re not worthy!” bow & scrape to Tom Wyrsch for the restoration; I previewed the first few minutes & it looks like it was made this morning!
