All of us who love the Janeway Statue should take a moment to mark the sudden passing of Bill Burke. Bill was the first person we worked with at CBS, before we had any idea if they would be interested in the project. Bill was supportive from the start, had a good sense of humor, and guided us through the steps needed to get CBS onboard.
Bill left CBS before we finished, causing some unwarranted anxiety, but his early guidance made this all possible. Another person to whom we all owe so much.
