When Kate Mulgrew, the actress best known for playing Captain Janeway on "Star Trek: Voyager," took on the role of Kove in Adult Swim's procedural show spoof, " NTSF: SD: SUV:: ," "Star Trek" fans were not sure of what to think about it. After all, the "Trek" crowd can be a fickle bunch. Witness the backlash against Wesley Crusher from "Star Trek: The Next Generation." It's only been in recent years that fans have really embraced Wil Wheaton as a nerd hero. The show has been on the air since July on the network (which is owned by Time Warner, which also owns CNN), and Mulgrew told CNN Geek Out that fans have since warmed up to her character in a big way.

NASA plans to take the first step in returning to the moon by launching a Delta II rocket with a payload dubbed the GRAIL mission (short for Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory).

Voyager ’s first officer with a former Borg. But then again, it was a line for Kate Mulgrew, otherwise known as Captain Kathryn Janeway, and her "Voyager" panel.
