Ex Astris Scientia - Observations in TNG: "Disaster" Observations in TNG: "Disaster" A joint project with TrekCore, by Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider. Here are some observations about sets, props and visual effects in TNG: "Disaster" without a specific theme, and a comparison of the original TV release (TNG) with the remastered episode ...
Our next article: Observations in TNG: "Silicon Avatar". It is my least favorite TNG episode, but it comes with eye candy in the form of the Crystalline Entity. See even more of it in the HD screen cap gallery at TrekCore. http://tng.trekcore.com/hd/thumbnails.php?album=113

Interesting. I always wanted to compile a similar list of my own. I probably wouldn't have included aliens because it's nothing we can influence, but I would definitely add time travel and shields to the list.

Willkommen, jolan tru, welcome!
When I look at the number of visitors to EAS, it is a worrying development that between 2010 and 2012 the monthly visitor count halved from about 200,000 to no more than 100,000. The decline stopped a couple of months before STID was released in 2013. The counter went up a bit
again and the figures have been more or less stable since then.
I am looking for answers why EAS has lost so much ground, much more than after the end of Star Trek Enterprise in
2005. The reason for the
more recent downturn can't lie with the content of EAS (that got updated as frequently as ever and was further
consolidated). Rather than that, I blame the radically changing usage of the internet during the past couple of years. So I was trying to find evidence of how it happened, and of how to boost the popularity of EAS again. This is not a commercial site, in which case a reduction of the audience by 50% would be a catastrophe. Still, I have a vital interest to prevent the site from slipping into total insignificance.
A poll in April 2014 showed me that the
majority of visitors to this site have bookmarked it. This is a blessing
but also a curse, considering that EAS is more or less isolated from the
working mechanisms of social media. Various Google searches and social media searches confirm that there are extremely few mentions of EAS in social media, except for my own posts.
That way, EAS seems to have no chance to gain any new visitors.
I believe that, in one way or another, we are all influenced by social networks and their working principles, even if we visit them only occasionally.
The problem is that social networks are an additional (and a seemingly "democratic") layer of interaction that produces no content but serves to rate how good or how new something is and (for some people) to find content in the first place, without a need to browse any conventional sites.
This principle discriminates against traditionally presented content and niche
content by its very nature, and favors any kind of "content" such as a funny picture.
While I can't change the nature of the
internet, I have a few ideas how I can regain the popularity of EAS or
at least preserve what is left of it. But it isn't possible without the
support of my visitors.

We have compiled a big new article. It summarizes how a flyby of the Enterprise-D that appeared in countless TNG episodes since the fourth season but whose original footage could not be found was replaced for the remastering. Starting with a first CG model for the sampler with "The Inner Light", the footage was recreated with a similar shot of the physical model for several episodes, until a refined CG model of the Enterprise was available. See all the details in Enterprise Flybys in TNG and TNG-R.
In order to fill the new "Show/hide related" side bar with links (which happens automatically through a script), I have placed countless additional links in practically all pages. And while I was at it, I have updated several articles, such as Re-Uses of the Angel One Matte Painting (now with the latest information from TNG-R).
