One of the more interesting changes has been that both the post card and the new logo wallpaper have the official Doctor Who site as http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho, and not based at the cult url. By itself, it's probably not a big deal, but it's another signal about what they're really expecting with this new series.

It's like the late 1980s and Doctor Who, of course.
And actually, I think there is some truth to it. It's not that modern Trek is awful -- Enterprise, while not great, is not the worst Trek either. But to some extent, the comparison with the 1980s Who is right as well -- the faith was lost during Voyager, just like the faith for Doctor Who was lost when Colin Baker was playing the title character, and while there were some signs of life towards the end of the series, it was too little, too late.
But I think the other lesson that we get is that even if it rests for a while -- and perhaps it should -- it will come back. Star Trek as a format has the sort of flexibility that survives cast changes, and production changes. It's no longer just one person's vision, and just like no one really doubts that there will be another Sherlock Holmes movie, or another James Bond movie, or another Superman movie -- eventually, there will be more Star Trek
But perhaps not for a while. So we an all remember why there should be a Star Trek.

I'm not sure what all of this means -- and how other people view America is always complicated, but it's food for thought.
I'm quite sad that I missed Jon Stewart on CROSSFIRE. But the transcript is amusing.
(And in other political incorrectness, TEAM AMERICA is wonderful satire.)

November 20th at the Sheraton Bloomington, at 2:00 PM.
The brainstorming session is really the most important meeting of
the year for us. It's where we get much of our ideas.
