I often complain that the Web 2.0 killed the good old Star Trek sites, overruling the fans' personal efforts with mainstreamed "swarm intelligence", and replacing the individual touch of their sites with the uniform style dictated by big companies. Trek.fm uses all the techniques of the Web 2.0. Yet, the site combines the best of both worlds. Trek.fm offers podcasts, videos, articles and news much like a traditional personal Star Trek site, but accomplishes all this in the environment of a community, and apparently a quite prolific one. Its individuality is visible in the content provided by various contributors, but also in the pleasant design of the site that is not disrupted by ads. I especially like the countless comic-style illustrations, which are among the best I have seen on any site. My only slight point of criticism is that some older articles or news items are hard to find, owing to the lack of a sub-menu structure, a sitemap or a browsable archive. In any case Trek.fm is so versatile and so nice to read and to listen to that it deserves an EAE Award by all means.
