"Star Trek: Enterprise" is about to go where it has never gone before: off the air, taking the "Star Trek" franchise with it. After the two-hour finale airs (8 p.m. EDT Friday on UPN) this will be the first time in 18 years that no first-run "Trek" series is on TV.

NASA Astronauts Mike Fincke and Terry Virts recently suited up for a voyage in "space" without ever leaving Earth. In fact, their most recent space expedition was in Hollywood. Instead of a countdown, their launch began on "lights, camera, and action!"

Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
