?Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.? Yes, boys and girls, Hollywood?s long winter of Oscar-primed weepies is over and that glorious summer of box office boffos is upon us. If the new ?Star Trek? is the opening salvo, we?re in for an exciting time. Without any previous experience of the vast and variable ?Star Trek? lore, director J. J.

All the favorite characters of a dyed-in-the-wool Trekkie are in place but fleshed out by new, fresh faces.

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall Occasionally my odds and ends drawer overflows, requiring some sorting out. There are so many items stuffed in my "column topic" file, a mental equivalent of the odds and ends drawer, that I can't find time and space to cover them all. So, today we'll sort through a few. One reader wrote, "Did I miss your E3 2005 column?" referring to the video game trade show at the Los Angeles Convention Center. I skipped E3this year due to a bum knee. I couldn't handle a trek through nearly 45 acres of exhibits.
