It’s free, and very high-quality. (It uses POV-Ray.)” The front-page graphics look nifty, but the inevitable image gallery isn’t there yet.

Like we all didn’t know this one was coming.
reports that Patrick Stewart has been signed for the
inevitable tenth “Star Trek” movie. (This strongly implies
that it’ll be a “Next Generation” movie, not a much cooler
