Past Updates 2004
I have added the recent Vulcan and Andorian ships to the Starship Database.
As announced, here are the reviews of "The Forge", "Awakening" and "Kir'Shara". I watched them yesterday and wrote the reviews tonight. Now I could need a break...
Beginning with a revised analysis of Vulcan Mind Melds and some smaller changes such as in the Timeline I am incorporating the changes in the literally revolutionary Vulcan story arc. Reviews will follow soon.
More fan fiction: Read Transition - The Next Chapter by Dominick Carlucci.
Read the episode review of "The Augments".
Among many smaller updates I have revamped the general considerations on time travel which now include new ideas and equivalent system descriptions of the theories.
The episode review of "Cold Station 12" is ready.
Here comes Star Trek Renegade II - The Return of the Corinthian, a story by J. Grey.
It was a major effort although not everyone may notice the result. The text color at EAS is now light gray instead of white, and the episode reviews are in normal text to improve legibility. Naturally the conversion wasn't fully automated. Please don't hesitate to report any occurrences of wrong colors and messy layout to me!
And here comes the review of "Borderland". I have also added a few new ships and facts, including the ones from this episode. Thanks to Alice, Irishman and Jörg!
It's a bit late, but here is my review of "Home".
Here is a write-up about random examples of Bad Ethics in Star Trek.
I received sad news that Alice Orbán's mother died of a lung embolism on Wednesday. If you can spare a minute, please see the condolence thread. My best wishes go to Alice who contributed greatly to the Starship Database. On the joyful side of today's update, see renditions of the EAS designs Java class (by The Red Admiral), Indus class and Caesar class (both by Lennier).
The malevolent review of the anticipated disaster named "Storm Front".
As already announced, I attended the Galileo 7 Convention on Saturday, October 2nd. Here is a Con report with some pictures.
Like it happens very often when I'm away for one day, Mozilla killed most of my e-mails from this weekend. If you don't receive a reply until Tuesday, please try again.
Enjoy a richly illustrated article (or rather a commented gallery?) about Re-Used Planet Sets.
Everything about the Variations of the Dominion Battlecruiser in our latest write-up.
Yet another article from Jörg's inexhaustible screen cap archive! It details the Redresses of the Mondor.
All you could ever want to know about Ferengi shuttles can be found in a new article. In addition, there are updates especially to the Romulan Starships. Finally I'm pleased to announce that the EAE Award for September goes to Star Trek: The Animated Series.
Due to a server move and the necessary DNS change some parts of the site may not always work everywhere during the next three days.
After trouble with the FTP connection, the missing images for the article Redresses of the Batris are finally complete.
The new domain stdimension.org is now operational on this server. An article with completely new facts about the Batris redresses is coming shortly. Furthermore, thanks to USS Admiral Federation Awards!
One of the most interesting Trek sites, Star Trek Dimension, is online again, now co-hosted with EAS. We apologize for the currently awkward redirect. A new domain will be activated shortly.
The considerations about The Trill Problem and Races with Changing Faces have been revised and supplemented with new screen caps by Jörg. Read the new write-up about the Kobheerians and Dopterians.
The screen capture reviewing continues. Here is a write-up about Redresses of the Talarian Warship, based on Jörg Hillebrand's analysis. In addition we have supplemented the observations about Bolians.
Big update in the starship section. There is a new article about the various Redresses of the Talarian Observation Craft, once again based on Jörg Hillebrand's observations. There is still more to come! A second new feature, co-authored by Sebastian Quevedo-Busch, presents our Nebula Class Observations - a close look at the ship's details.
Thanks to Jörg Hillebrand's screen caps and observations the article about Kazon Ship Sizes has been completely revised, and there are updates about Federation Shuttles and Ferengi Ship Classes. More to come soon.
Farewell Jerry Goldsmith. The composer of the unforgettable scores of "The Motion Picture" and "First Contact" died last night.
Thanks to Sven Lindemann who provided several precise drawings of Earth ships which can be found in the Earth Ships Database and the Earth Ships Gallery. There is also a new page with ships from the Mirror Universe.
Congratulations to Gary of the The Unofficial Star Trek Fact Files Index! He wins this month's EAE Award. Thanks to The Prussian Space Navy and to Alpha Fleet for their awards! Read about Kirk's time during the refit phase of his ship in Transition - Part 2 by Dominick Carlucci.
An alarming number of dead Links had to be removed, but there are a few new ones too. I'm also systematically running the spell check to get rid of typos (still too many as I noticed).
This season's ENT reviews close with "Alien Nazis, Part III" aka "Zero Hour". To be honest, I have to apologize for not really reviewing the episode.
And here is "Countdown". Several other sections of the site have been updated with the latest information.
More updates in the Starship Database, like ships that appeared on displays etc. Please follow the signs.
Thanks to Robert and A Call to Duty for providing scans of interiors of the Enterprise-D (battle bridge II, sickbay, Picard's quarters, nacelle control room), and Defiant main engineering. Congratulations to Star Trek Voyager Info, winner of this month's EAE Award!

Here is the review of "Azati Prime". Also, several parts of the site have been updated with information from the episode.
My review of "Doctor's Orders" is finished. You can beat me, but this was yet another absolutely awful Trek installment.
Here is the second part of J. Grey's pilot for Renegade II, Through the Looking Glass - Part 2.
Don't read my review of "Harbinger" if you liked the episode. You have been warned!
A few new designs in the Journal of Applied Treknology.
The review of "Proving Ground" is ready.
Here is an extensive article on Religion in Star Trek. Readers are requested to bear in mind that this has always been a controversial topic, and the article can't and doesn't strive to provide an ultimate solution.
Here is another part of In Harm's Way.
The second part of Pax Romana, the novel by Travis Anderson, is ready.
Another random JoAT update. More to come soon. On a related note, with at most one hour per day left to work on this website, it is impossible to post more than a small percentage of the submitted JoAT designs or fan fiction. In particular, I will no longer reformat or retype any texts. As I have more and better things to do, I will mercilessly discard anything sent to me that doesn't *closely* follow the harsh guidelines outlined for JoAT designs and fan fiction.
The second part of Star Trek: Horizon - Into a Shattered Place by Ruben Hilbers is ready.
Here is the review of "Chosen Realm". Also, several parts of the site have been updated with information from the most recent episodes.
