Smaller updates in many sections, including shield inconsistencies and lifeboats of the Constitution refit.

Mozilla Mail Massacre (the third). I apologize to all who tried to contact me in vain on December 12th. I will ditch the program and watch out for something else, if only I manage to convert the e-mails. On a completely different note, I may have more time for my hobbies again now that I have defended my Ph.D. thesis.
Please take part in the new poll, now with a PHP script running on my server.
Important notice: After a catastrophic failure of Mozilla, once again all my e-mails in the Inbox are gone. Please contact me again, but only if you don't receive a reply soon. Thanks to the idiots at Mozilla and to the other idiot who sent me the 4MB e-mail that caused the whole disaster! Now for the more pleasant news. New in the Starfleet Museum: Several ship emblems, mostly of the Paris and Gagarin classes, preview of the article about Starfleet stations. Congratulations to Original Trek, winner of the EAE Award for December!

The Starfleet Museum has improved images of the Moskva, Lancaster etc. and previews of the new Gagarin and Paris classes. I have created a page about the Qualor II surplus depot. Thanks to The Red Admiral for the screen caps. Finally, there are new bridge images of the Pasteur and the Impostor ship. Important notice: Due to a catastrophic malfunction of Mozilla, my e-mail Inbox of today is lost. Half of it was spam anyway, but please try again if anyone wanted to contact me.

See the second part of the JoAT update, with new designs and technology in most of the sections.
There were so many submissions to the JoAT lately that I had to postpone part of them. For now, I have added some new personal equipment, technology and considerations about artificial brains. The rest will follow in a couple of days. There are some additions and corrections in the Starfleet Museum too, in particular to the article on 23rd Century Carriers. Finally, enjoy the third episode, Renegade: Just Below the Surface by J. Grey. Oh, and please take part in the new poll about Trek villains.

Attentive visitors may notice that we have removed several cut&paste starship designs from the database. Our apologies to those who submitted them, but please understand that we do want to achieve a high standard of originality.

The winner of the EAE Award for June 2002 is Trekplace. Congratulations to webmaster Greg Tyler!
Until further notice, I will be online only on weekends. I'm asking all visitors to send me only *important* requests and have patience, as currently around 200 e-mails accumulate every week.
The ASDB has been updated. Part of its content has been moved to a new site, called the Journal of Applied Treknology. The new site is taking over all design submissions and off-topic designs from the ASDB and will offer visitors the opportunity to present their work in more detail than presently. Note that some parts of the site are still under construction.
I have finally completed my Voyager reviews.
Thanks to Star Trek Clan Directory where EAS is Site of the Week.

Ex Astris Scientia is back, thanks to generous help from Jak Crow of Werewolves.org who allows me to use his server. Cordial thanks! Thanks also to the many people who have affirmed me their support and who have offered me hosting alternatives. I may not have much time for updates in the next few weeks because I'm going to sign up for a new job. Anyway, new features will come sooner or later.
EAS is going down because my webspace provider Strato terminated the contract with fabricated assertions against me. Notwithstanding a possible lawsuit against Strato to continue with web hosting according to their conditions, I need to find a new web host. The website will probably go offline on May 1st.

Congratulations to Lee Kelly! His site, Phasers, wins the EAE Award for April 2002. I have reviewed "Acquisition" (I know I will have to split the page because it is becoming too long). Schließlich gibt es noch einen übersetzten Artikel über die Technologie des 22. Jahrhunderts. Fortsetzung folgt.
There are three more TAS reviews.

Based on new photos of the actual models, I have begun to retouch the official schematics of the DS9TM kitbashes, beginning with the Centaur and the ugly Intrepid/Constitution. Furthermore, there is a new review of "Shuttlepod One".
Today, I'm expecting visitor No. 1,000,000 since I have a counter. See Chapter 2 of Star Trek Renegade by J. Grey.
I have added a couple of reference images to the Starship Database. In addition, there is surprising new information about the six DS9TM kitbashes. Until we will write up a fully fledged article, please refer to the entries in the database. Thanks to Mark Delgado for the research. Finally, I have reviewed "Shadows of P'Jem", and I found it appalling.
Inspired by a Montblanc ball pen, I updated the Hercules class. I am aware of the similarity to a certain official vessel, but my design is much older. :-D

Read my reviews of "Dear Doctor" (rating: 5 out of 10) and "Sleeping Dogs" (4/10).
