Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond's glint on snow, I am sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain, When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night, Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.

There is still a Space Board, the format changed, but it's still there! Good Luck!!

ATEN- HUH!!!!!!!!

Here is the update for October 3rd 1996 From Pat Moss

Space: Above and Beyond Status:

I just talked to Peter Roth's office, and it seems he (and his staff) are big fans of the show. In fact, Roth was one of the people who first Okay-ed the show when he worked at 20th Century Fox Television.

According to Roth's office, Fox Broadcasting (FB) would be willing to listen to a pitch from Glen Morgan and James Wong to bring the show back. FB primary concern is the fact that many of the cast and crew may have moved on to other projects. This is not to say that if M&W pitch a renewal that it will happen, but it is a sign that FB is willing to listen. Coupled with XXCFT's willingness to produce the show if a network purchases it, this is very good news indeed.

I called Morgan and Wong to tell them the news. It didn't seem as if they knew about this change of events with Roth at the helm. We can only wait and hope that M&W wish to continue production of the show and decide to pitch it to FB, and that FB decides to pick up an option on Space putting XXCFT back in the Space Production business.

With the faltering ratings at FOX, we may win the war yet. With the ratings after X-Files and Millennium, we'll know just how hard to fight and where we should poke. :)

Campaigns/Operations/Fan News:

Operation: FINAL ASSAULT

Part One: Lush Life and Party Girl are history. It is now time to concentrate on the lower rated shows till the revamped LA Firefighters (Fire Co. 132) premieres. We need to do this up through December when Millennium premieres and has broadcast about 4-8 episodes; giving us material to judge it by. We need to let FOX know what shows don't cut it, while also creating opportunities (timeslots) for S:AAB to be picked up as a mid-season replacement. Send letters either:

  • Mr. Peter Roth, President
  • Mr. Chase Carey, Chairman, CEO and
  • Ms. Stacy Marks-Bronner, Exec VP Marketing
  • Fox Broadcasting Network P.O. Box 900 Beverly Hills, CA 90213

    Part Two: If S:AAB is to return, 20th Century Fox Television would produce new episodes. FOX Broadcasting no longer has the option on the S:AAB property; they (or another network/syndicator) would need to purchase it. Rumor has it that at least one other network has made inquiries. The time to write is now! Network executives are currently looking at ideas for mid-season replacements, so start writing! In our letters, we can cite:

  • -the news article by Trish Serju, You can check out the article at: https://www.detnews.com (Look under Cyberia)
  • -the show's Emmy nominations
  • -the show's six nominations in the Sci-Fi Universe's Readers ChoiceAwards
  • -popularity in Europe, Australia, and Canada
  • etters should be sent to:

    Mr. Charlie Goldstein, President 20th Century Fox Television P.O. Box 900 Beverly Hills, CA 90213

    In conjunction with Operation: FINAL ASSAULT, the 96th will be working with the 72nd Air Cavalry. Mark Gray has proposed that we have a mass snail and email mailing on October 25th, to FOX Broadcasting, calling for the return of S:AAB. This will be accomplished by the use of a intermediate address. We are asking that all squadrons join in the operation by writing at least one letter regarding your feelings on the cancellation of "Space Above And Beyond". The letters should be stamped and addressed to:

    Peter Roth, Chairman, CEO Fox Broadcasting Network P.O Box 900 Beverly Hills, CA 90213

    We are asking that all letters be sent to the 72nd's intermediate address so that we can have them all arrive at the same time. We would like to time this right, so if the letters could arrive before or during the week of October 21st - 25th, that will be the best for us in getting everything done on time and as planned.

    A window of opportunity has opened for us with the shuffling of FOX's programming schedule. Now is the time to take advantage of that opportunity. The 72nd is looking forward to working with us to make our collective goal a reality. Questions can be answered by Torrey Harris at: [email protected]or Mark Gray at: [email protected] The 72nd's R.O.S. homepage is at: >www.csc.calpoly.edu/~magray/72nd/ROS/index.html

    The intermediate address to send letters to is:

    Kate MacCullugh/ROS P.O. Box 6925 San Bernardino, CA 92412


    James Morrison recently finished filming an early episode of Millennium. His character's name is "Jim" and is apparently a very very good character; rumor has it as good as McQueen. The character is *not* recurring as far as anyone has said.

    Tucker Smallwood will be appearing in the October 11th episode of The X-Files. He plays a small-town sheriff named Andy Taylor.

    Pat Moss announced that he had to shut down the fan-email gateway. Matt Staub of the 92nd Squadron (the official Kristen Cloke Fan Club) has set up a fan-email gateway to go with the Kristen Cloke web page:

    https://www.servtech.com/public/mrs7764/KCLOKE

    You can also reach this gateway via your email program. Here's how it works: You send your message to. It then gets compiled along with all the other messages for the day, into one large message, and is sent to her real email address. ***PLEASE NOTE***is not her real email address, just a gateway address. In case you are concerned - no one reads these messages but Kristen. Sci-Fi & Fantasy Models magazine, issue #15 from England is running an article on the props and Chig make-up and armor produced by Modelsmiths. They are planning at least one additional article on the effects of the show. Also Science Fiction Modeler out of Australia is doing something on the show, specifically, the 1:1 scale Hammerhead that was build for the premiere's big roll-out scene. Both magazines are available in limited release in the US.


    Inquiries into other networks perhaps acquiring the rights to Space: Above and Beyond are being looked into. Letters can be sent to the following networks -

    WB Network UPN Network
    4000 Warner Blvd. 5555 Melrose Ave.
    Burbank, CA 91522 Los Angeles, CA 90038
