Past Updates 2000
Here is yet another article, about the Dominion battleship. If anyone has sent me e-mail lately and not received a reply, please contact me again. It's really nasty. I have four SMTP servers to choose from, but none of them works properly.
I was planning to bring the articles online one by one, but I just couldn't wait: Defiant - yes, 120m, Oberth - stuff for new controversies, Delta Flyer - it just doesn't fit. Many thanks to Chris, Frank, and Jim!
Thanks to Forger for his award, and congratulations to The Prime Directive, winner of the EAE Award! I'm preparing some new starship articles. Please stay tuned!
Please take the new EAS poll! Für die deutschsprachigen Besucher gibt es einen weiteren Artikel, diesmal über den Transporter.
I have fixed several links and made a few small improvements, most notably new schematics of the New Orleans and the Cheyenne. Thanks to Voyager's Delights for their award! Neu: eine Seite für den deutschsprachigen Star Trek Weekly Newsletter.
Added new images to the Wolf 359 article. Fixed several defunct external links.
Update of the Starfleet Museum, most notably with a new article about the Daedalus class. Thanks to Alex for his Daedalus Award (nice coincidence) and to FAdm Minosh for the 15th Fleet Award.
Added images and diagrams of the Malon garbage scow.
Added five-view schematics and a cutaway diagram of the Sovereign class. Thanks a lot to Starfleet Supply and to the 7th Fleet for their awards!

Updated Voyager inconsistencies, added images of the Voyager studio model, added schematics of the almost canon Saladin/Hermes and Ptolemy. Furthermore, I have revised several Movie, TOS and Voyager episode ratings.
28 new images in the ASDB, including a page with several possible designs for the Antares class. The Deneva class has been further developed. New in the gallery: Voth city ship(!) and Starfleet fighter.
Several new images in the Starfleet Museum, most notably 3D versions of almost all Romulan War ships by Fabio of 3D Gladiators. Thanks to Starfleet Intelligence for the Ventury Award and to Unimatrix 0-1 for their Gold Award.
Big update to the starship gallery with 150 new files from the book Star Trek Mechanics and the Star Trek Fact Files, most of them new to the web. Major changes to the starship list. I have added a new category of ship classes whose existence is uncertain. Finally, I have written a few critical lines about the program which I use to create these pages, Frontpage 2000.
The site has grown to an extent where navigation might get confusing. This is why I have created new index pages. Click the small icons Info, Starships, Fleet Yards, Treknology, Starship Models, Database, Features, and Community on this page and in the upper right corner of every other page! I'm currently preparing a huge update with over 100 new ship images from the great book Star Trek Mechanics. But give me some time, because real life is demanding its tribute too.
Added an analysis of computer capacities in Star Trek.
The updated and improved Federation fleet chart is ready. Warning: huge file (approx. 300K).
I have made a few corrections to the article about the infamous Antares class, more to come soon. Furthermore, I have modified the side view of the Niagara class to match the actual model better.
Thanks a lot to Dan for his Explosive Site Award. Visit Dan's brand new site, The Gigantic Collection of Star Trek Minutiae. The long title is absolutely justified!
A couple of additions to the Wolf 359 page. Thanks to all contributors!
Thanks to Karen for her Riley Award!
It seems I have to reconsider my opinion about Adobe Illustrator. See what is possible: Enterprise-B (JPG, PDF), Enterprise-C (JPG, PDF), Enterprise-E (JPG, PDF). Thanks a lot to Mike Swantak!
Please visit the new Subspace Relay, and see fantastic 3D models at 3D Gladiators, some of them originating in the Starfleet Museum. The EAE Award for July goes to Jim Wright's Delta Blues. Congratulations!
I have updated the links.
I have compiled several questions about starship classes and starship names and registries (and answered some of them). More to come soon. Also new: Sydney class, my fourth and best attempt to reconstruct its side view. Furthermore, there are four more episode reviews of Voyager's season 6.
Great news about the Wolf 359 research. See a picture of the four-nacelled Excelsior class(!), courtesy of Mike Okuda. Revised ship of the week: Asia refit. The Starfleet Museum features the Fireball Class and several new images.
Visitors frequently ask me what graphics software I'm using and why. My extensive Drawing Software Test compares the performances of three popular programs.
Major update of the Starfleet Museum, with several new pages, images, and descriptions.
I apologize for the long down-time. I hope the server administrator has fixed the recent problems. In the meantime I have completely revised the drawings of my Lancelot class and Sirius class. The winner of the EAE Award for June 2000 is SciFi Art.
Added images of the Nova class.
Added review of Equinox I/II, more from season 6 to come soon. New detailed images of my Vladivostok class and Patria class. The 100,000 visitors threshold is surpassed. Thanks to all of you!
Updated the Starfleet Museum. Happy Easter! I will be back on Tuesday.
Added image of DS9 Ops.

Added images of the Zahl, Nihydron, and Mawasi ships.
Visit the new Subspace Comms Network, a common project with other Trek websites. Read my thoughts about the Romulans and since when they have warp drive. As for the Defiant being at Wolf 359, it was already past midnight when I noticed I still needed something for April Fool's Day. Maybe a higher quality fake next year!
New ship discovered in the Wolf 359 graveyard! Click here.
Added images of three Krenim ship types. Their enemies will follow soon.

Thanks to Georg for awarding my site the Romulus Gold Award. I have added a schematic of the early Enterprise bridge under Captain Pike.
Added a couple of new exobiology inconsistencies.
The Physics and Technology of Warp Propulsion is going to be a comprehensive reference and analysis. Currently the introduction, the first chapter about FTL travel and real physics and the appendix are available.

Several changes to the links page and some minor fixes.
There is new information about Wolf 359 every day, so it was already time for an update of the Wolf 359 page.
It was one of those improbable coincidences that in the same week three fellow Trek fans contacted me independently of each other about the Wolf 359 ships. See what we have compiled on the new Wolf 359 page.
New, more "professional" homepage layout finished.
Added the last missing episodes of Voyager's 5th season.
A few small changes to the page on the New Orleans class.
I have added new 2D- and 3D images of the Detroit class and the Meteor class. Thanks to Thomas and Paul for the 3D modeling. I'm also planning a special issue on starship bridge designs. It will take some time to prepare all the images. Just an appetizer: Enterprise-E bridge.
Happy birthday, EAS. The site is online for two years. Try the new search function! I have also -finally- registered for a free guestbook. Please drop me a few lines.
I have made a few changes to the ASDB and set up a new web counter.
Added a side view of the Federation Timeship Aeon.

The Starfleet Museum features lots of new graphics.
I have just received the highest rank of the Spock's Mind Award. Thank you very much, Katja!
