Astra

Does anyone remember ASTRA? I can't imagine too many people would. I probably don't have too many Star Trek loving-Australian-newsgroup readers from 1995 reading my blog. ASTRA was the Australian Star Trek Ratings Analysis. Maintained, apparently, in excel, with regular postings to aus.sf.star-trek (and probably others).

I have wondered over the years whatever happened to astra. So tonight I went looking. Apparently it merged into GEOS in 1997. So there you go.

Tragically, I still have some of the aus.sf.star-trek postings from 1995 when I was into newsgroups, and The Original Series was being aired again. .. heh

Watched Space Seed tonight. Actually one of the better episodes. Makes me wanna watch Star Trek II again to see what happens next :)

.. and I think I'm coming down with something :(
