JUNCTION POINT: NOT JUST ANOTHER PBeM RPG!
Junction Point is a freefloating space station that is located in that dark area between Gorn, Tholian, and Klingon space, within a whiff of the Romulan Empire. K7, as we call it, is adjacent to Sherman's Planet, where, just 76 years before, the tribble incident took place. We're set in the year 2380, after the Borg encounters and the Dominion War, at the very end of the ST-TV timelines. This is a very fastpaced game composed of a solid base of experienced and expert players, some of them professionally published in the SF-Fantasy genre. Our location is junction.the-fgn.org and we're always ready to welcome a few new players into our warm and friendly community. If our roster appears full at the positions that interest you, don't let that discourage you from joining. There's enough posting for duplications in Senior Officer positions and the imagination's the limit on civilian and other personnel. We're expecting to be around for a long time, so if you come, plan to stay! We can be reached by clicking Contact Administration or Joining the Game on our site.

TrekWeb visitor 'Cyrus' has sent in some more excerpts from co-creator/executive producer Brannon Braga's new and somewhat controversial (see story) interview in the May 2002 issue of Cinescape Magazine.

This time around, Braga clues us in on why Captain Archer has sustained so many bruises this season.

"We wanted to see him make some mistakes, see him learning, see him grappling with the idea of how he's going to do this job where there are no rules," Brannon explains. "The fact that Archer has a bit of temper - we like to see that now and again, and to see him get frustrated. He's a real physical guy. With Janeway, we'd throw her around the room and she'd get up and her hair would be a little mussed. She had a skeleton of titanium, but with Archer, we like to see him get beat up. We rough him up a lot and like him to get physical."

He also promises the captain's dog -- Porthos -- will not become a contrived plot device central to future episodes.

"On Enterprise it's all about humanizing the team... the dog is not there to become the next Wesley Crusher. The dog is just there as texture. We always liked the dog. Some people didn't. As long as we don't feature him as story material we'll be fine. When you start using him to stop the aliens, that's when you have the problems," he says.

Braga reveals that the Temporal Cold War plot thread was originally an idea for an entirely different original series.

"I thought that it could be a great series on its own. The idea of a cold war being fought on different fronts, and each front is in a different century. It would be great to do a show that takes place in a different time period every week, and you have these sleeper agents in all different time periods," he told the mag.

"It's a very cool idea, but we decided to work it into Enterprise instead and I think it's working out well so far."

But does this storyline mean ENTERPRISE is more than just a STAR TREK prequel? Braga isn't giving many clues, but he does admit the story will be around for some time.

"I think it's primarily a prequel. But, as the cold war keeps developing, you're going to get little glimpses of the Star Trek that is yet to come. I don't know [how long we'll include the arc]. It depends on how long we can sustain it. It will certainly go on for a while."

For more of the interview, check out the May 2002 issue of Cinescape, available now.
