    Typhon Station is a very fastpaced PBeM RPG with skilled, experienced players and a warm sense of bonding and community. We play at the turn-of-the-century, 2400, and are located in the Typhon Expanses, bordering the Neutral Zone, proximate to the Romulan Empire, and near the Iconian Digs, and are on the first warning route of the original Borg Incursion.
    We have three stations to post from, SB 185, USS Odyssey, and USS Wraith. They all have general and particular storylines and all interact. This game is not for the faint of heart! The writing is superb and comes hot and heavy. We have some open spots and also we will consider character suggestions. So, longtime RPGers and novices, check us out. See if you want to make Typhon Station your home away from home.

    The Wednesday print edition of USA Today has published the final ratings for the week of November 4-10, the first full week of the November Sweeps period. ENTERPRISE's "The Seventh" finished with a 3.2/5 rating and share, identical to the season premiere "Shockwave, Part II," but with a viewership of 4.82 million, the lowest audience for any first-run episode of the series this season. The premiere comes out just ahead with 4.89 million and "Carbon Creek" secured 4.84 million viewers. The low record holder for the entire series is "Fusion" last February with 4.49 million viewers. The "Seventh" performance was good enough to secure 5th place for the week, just edging out FOX's Firefly, but ends a streak of improving audience numbers that began with "Minefield."

    The big news of the week comes at the top as The WB's Smallville shattered the record it only established a few weeks ago to secure 1st place with 9.4 million viewers. Last week's Smallville was the most watched episode of the series to date, topping the previous high by a cool 1/2 million viewers and, in this age of television, a remarkable 7% increase above the premiere of its pilot last season. As if that were not enough, for the first time ever Smallville knocked ABC's Alias off of its perch at the top in head-to-head competition. Television, at least this week, has a new science fiction/fantasy champion. Next week, we'll see if Smallville can retain the title with its most serialized episode to date. ABC's Alias was close behind Smallville with 9.3 million viewers.

    There is more of the "good news, bad news" variety for The WB. The audience decline of the Batman-bastard child "Birds of Prey" appears to have leveled off around 4.6 million and Charmed continued its strong performance this season with 5.5 million viewers; easily outdistancing ENT for 4th place for the week. The bad news for The WB comes in the form of its formerly stalwart Angel, which, for the second week in roll, was mired with a measly 3.6 million viewers. Based on the previous two weeks, it appears as if Angel is in trouble.

    For FOX there was good news as John Doe remained firmly entrenched in 3rd place, securing its now standard 6.6 million viewers. Meanwhile, Joss Whedon's Firefly has clearly stabilized its audience numbers with 4.7 million this week.

    Top Ranked Science Fiction/Fantasy Genre Network Series
    November 4-10 (based on number of viewers)

    1) Smallville (WB) - 5.4/8 (9.4 million)
    2) Alias (ABC) - 5.5/8 (9.3 million)
    3) John Doe (FOX) - 4.1/7 (6.6 million)
    4) Charmed (WB) - 3.2/5 (5.5 million)
    5) Enterprise (UPN ) - 3.2/5 (4.8 million)
    6) Firefly (FOX) - 2.9/5 (4.7 million)
    7) Birds of Prey (WB) - 3.0/4 (4.6 million)
    8) Buffy the Vampire Slayer (UPN) - 2.9/4 (4.6 million)
    9) Angel (WB) - 2.4/4 (3.6 million)
    10) The Twilight Zone (UPN) - 2.0/3 (3.2 million)

    CBS once again won the week with an average of 14.2 million viewers, followed by NBC with 13.3 million. UPN was yet again mired in last place with 4.2 million, trailing The WB's 5.0 million. It is possible that UPN's poor performance this season makes a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off next season (or perhaps even the return of BVS itself, if Sarah Michelle Geller can be signed) seem more likely than ever, else UPN return explicitly to being the Trek and Wrestling Network.

    NEXT WEEK: Can the Apocalyse help Angel's numbers rebound?

    Damn, WB better move Angel back to Monday nights QUICK. Being up against Alias, The Sopranos, and Malcolm in the Middle is not easy competition.


    Also, WHY is ALias concidered Sci-Fi/Fantasy? That is a spy show, isn't it??? How is that Sci-Fi???

    Basketball Season!

    Yup UPN affilates have begun preempting UPN shows for terrible and meaningless regular season basketball.

    Trek, even on UPN, still has the syndication style viewing. It's shown later that night or sometime on the weekend. In St. Louis it's shown on the WB! These are things the Neilsons do not take into account (That's why syndicated shows have different systems of measurement). You know Paramount does their own numbers and I would be more people watch than these numbers suggest.

    Oh and by the way, your numbers are heavily skewed on your poll. Either some loser keeps voting for bad every week or something. If you go to other Trek sites, ones that let you only vote once, you see a much different story.

    The poll TrekWeb runs here is obviously tampered with on one than one occasion during the week of a show.

    First off, every trek show this season basically has started off with a LARGE majority of votes for Bad, with Excellent being right below, and then by the time the poll is ready to come off, it is basically 50% bad, 50% good.

    Are we to believe that people have THAT different of opinions to the point where the show is sided down the middle?

    TrekWeb, give it a rest, we know you are tempering with the poll results, i've been watching them for a month now.

    When "Marauders" aired, People were obviously lured in to see the Klingons. It was good, but ot could have been better. I did not like "The Seventh". Ok, I have seen worse Trek episodes, but this one did not click with me. I wrote a review of it on my site at link
    As a whole, I must admit, the series is slowly getting better. Now, UPN must concetrate more heavily on promotion (outside of UPN affiliates). I was in Chicago a few weeks ago, and I saw no bill boards advertising ENterprise. Ok, I didn't drive around checking every one, but I was hoping that in my travels accross ton I would at least see one. There were non in the subway or the ELs(local train transit). They do a fair amount of promotion in magazines and TVGuide, but there needs to be more. I talked to so many people in big city areas who say things like "Oh damn, I didn't even know they had another Star Trek out". The reason that they didn't? Because they don't watch UPN. Word of Mouth helps as well, but the only thing UPN can do on that front is to make better stories and episodes. I am a Trek fan, so I will watch Enterprise when its available, but I will not tell other people to watch if I know the show is not good or if there are better shows on TV. Once again, the show needs to be more sophisticated and take more risks.

    Alias

    While these Trekweb columns make "Alias" sound like a big hit, it is actually not doing that great. mediaweek calls it a disappointment. It consistently gets lower ratings than shows that precede and follow it on ABC, which may cause the network to change its timeslot. Not only it fails to hold the audience of the Disney show that precedes it, it continues to lose viewers during the hour (the second half hour of Alias gets lower ratings than its first half hour). Maybe it is just not a compatible show with Disney, but if they move it to a bad timeslot (e.g. Saturday nights) the ratings might drop drastically.
