Robert suggests we all try and use the newsgroups more this way more people will have a chance to find out about the movement to save Earth 2 & how they can help.

Earth2Foundations (E2F) thinks CBS may still be negotiating it's new season & hasn't set its entire schedule or mid-season replacements. Recommends writing

Anne says, "A small group of Washington, DC folks are going to try to talk to the Editor of Starlog on the 29th at a con in the DC suburbs. (NovaCon at the Tysons Westpark, Tyson's Corner, VA).

Mary plans to hand out cards made up to hand at the NovaCon next weekend using The Grendler Bar & Grill complimentary drink idea.

Leigh went to Space Center Houston in Houston Texas last thursday and meet Joey Zimmerman and J. Madison Wright

Gina : The billboard would cost about $4700! Besides banners Skyads flys five foot letters hooked together. The closest wordage that we can get to Barbara's cute poem is to replace the words "number one" with #1:

Emmy is gold
Fans are blue,
Our #1 drama
Is Amblin's Earth 2

Gina asks for volunteers to list all the choices for the Emmys and let people on the list vote for their favorite slogan

NOTE: Michael Hart is collecting a list of all the banner suggestions. (Offer to collect votes Michael?) Please email suggestions directly to Michael.

Clay reports that Earth 2 got an Emmy nomination for makeup! INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT IN MAKEUP FOR A SERIES; "Earth 2: After the Thaw," NBC

Tara suggests using, "The Emmy Nominated SF drama Earth2"

Shoshona asks, If anyone's interested in meeting at the Emmy's, contact her, Viv , or Gina.


Renee from Australia wrote: "a couple of letters to the execs in America (got the addresses off of the web page) and covered it in Aussie flag stickers, so I don't know if it will do any good, but at least they will know that the decision not to renew Earth 2 has far reaching consequences!!!!!!!!!!"

Mark suggests the best course of action for our overseas compatriots would be to write letters of support to Michael Duggan and Amblin and support the effort to get the show into syndication since the U.S. networks aren't likely to care about the show's international appeal.

Cathy reports that there are two letter to the editor in the August Issue of Starlog from people who are upset that Earth 2 was canceled. "From the sounds of it they stared out lukewarm about the show but grew to love the series and were very upset about cancelation."

Gina suggests putting flyers in the Dream Plane when sending out. This way whoever gets flyers if they're attending cons themselves, they can print up lots of copies to leave on a table.

(Thogek) For those asking for actors biographies, there's an automated email service in the UK which you can mail for general actor filmographies. Mail to '' with a line like PERSN in the message body Example: mail PERSN Brown, Clancy

R is for Renewal our one and only goal
T is for the Terrians who speak to mind and soul
H is for the Happiness of the *many* fans
2 is for the Second season that we all demand!
RENEW EARTH2!!!!!!!!!

Update(s) from last week:

The CEDAR FREAKS (Carlos, Matto and Jim) web site was incorrectly listed. The correct URL for their E2 images is:>

Daily G889: "All the news we can fit!"

>From The Daily G889, New Pacifica's first daily newspaper.

Cheryl Head Baker/Owner of "The Moon Cross Bakery" and her *award* winning G889 cookie (ask Clay :-O) also has the delicacies, Terrian Sand Tarts - Cookie covered with cinnamon and sugar 'sand'. Gingerbread Kobas - Koba shaped cookie complete with candy cornnails. Grendler Globs - Unusually shaped drop cookies with lots of sugar glaze

(Hey, cost me a boat-load of Danzinger BoilerMakers to "speed up" my Certificate of Occupancy for the newspaper! Luckily Tanya Headmistress, Adair Consolodated, has him back in class for another 1 1/2 credits in G889ography or I'd still be buying at the GB&G!)

Grendler Bar & Grille:
Proprieter: Shoshona (Who now offers little souvenir boxes made by The Moon Cross Bakery with baked goodies to sell/trade to tourists who visit)

Seems Vicky's upset the Hoard was served (and served and served) on their recent birthday. Better keep the Hoard away on Shoshona's G889 Valkyrie Night at the GB&G especially since they even need guards posted by the stage to prevent the Grendlers from chasing the women .

Dawn gives her review on some new GB&G dishes: Terrian Marinate: A generous portion of roasted Terrian marinated for 300,000 years in a tangy snow sauce. Topped with shredded spirolina and garnished with a peacock feather (peebee'd better watch out, the cook is in short supply of peacock feathers)

Also, there was a new drink found at the TGB&G. Snow Sizzle-- Recently discovered power charged sparkling snow water. This is believed to *be* the original G889 vintage, rumored to be over 300,000 years old and guaranteed to put a bit of fire in your eyes (literally) and a demon in your soul.

We now cut to a comercial on KOBA-TV:

K O B A - K O L A K L A S S I C

Clay singing to the "Coca-Cola" jingle:

The moons will always shine,
Terrians will always sing,
Where ever there's a thirst
there's always Koba-Kola . . .

di di di di diii di di di di di di [Guess who sings this part!? ]
di di di di diii di di di di di di

Always Koba-Kola!
