Techies and Trekkies for a

Techies and Trekkies for a good cause? The two subcultures have banded together to raise money for the families of astronauts who died in the space shuttle Columbia. They've put together an Internet version of "Star Trek, " picking up where the original series left off.

The Net series features an entirely different cast. Dr. McCoy is portrayed by a urologist from Oregon, and Capt. James T. Kirk works during the day as Elvis at an amusement park.

"New Voyages" focuses on the continuing voyages of Kirk and crew in the 1966-1969 "Star Trek" television series, which was canceled after its third season -- the same year the first astronaut walked on the moon.

The series is being restarted as if it were in the fourth year of the original five-year mission.

The actors and producers, working for free, hope to raise $250,000 to donate to the Space Shuttle Children's Trust Fund on Sept. 8, the 38th anniversary of the first "Star Trek" episode.

New Voyages is online at www.5yearmission.com. Space Shuttle Children's Trust Fund: www.spaceshuttlekidsfund.org.
