RED DWARF:  Quarantine

This may be the weirest episode of this UK science fiction comedy series, and that is really saying something.  Hologram Rimmer is infected with a computer virus which makes him insane and homicidal.

STAR TREK New Voyages:  World Enough and Time

This is one in a series of fan produced STAR TREK episodes, made in cooperation with Paramount.  A number of professional STAR TREK professionals have written, starred, or otherwise been involved with this ongoing intermittent series.  This hour long episode focuses on George Takei, who reprises his role as Sulu.  Fans are cast for Kirk, Spock, and others in the show.
