Past Updates 2005
Merry Christmas to all of you! I will be gone until January 2nd. If you send me e-mails, be aware that I will only reply to issues that I deem important.
Here is a small article about the ships from the Star Fleet Technical Manual.

In the wake of the alarming demise of Trekpulse and other important sites I have taken the opportunity to weed out dead or dated links and rearrange the links page.

Thanks to Bravo Simulations Group for their first site award!
Important notice: I am on vacation until September 20. Upon my return I will only reply to the inquiries that I deem most important. Please refrain from sending me "Did you read my mail?" messages.
Significant updates in the article on the Size of the Delta Flyer.
Here are the Alphabet Stories M-S by Katarzyna Marcinkowska.
Another part of the "Transition" series by Dominick Carlucci is entitled Crisis Point.
On a related note, I am accepting no new fan fiction any longer because editing and reformatting long documents is very boring and disproportionate to the benefit. I will only post stories of the featured authors and from the backlog on my hard drive. Sorry, but with EAS I would like to focus on my own creative work.
Enjoy several funny new Bloopers and Oddities.
See several Re-Used Emblems and a few more updates to the article series.

After all my other efforts to fight spam have failed, the hopelessly spam-infested EAS Guestbook it is now password-protected. Please follow the directions. Note that I will not respond to inquiries, suggestions or complaints about that, I'm just sick of discussing it.
On a more positive note, I have updated the article about the Size of the Oberth Class.
See 16 new JoAT designs, all received through the submission form. While some accepted submissions are still in the queue, I'm sorry that almost 80% of all submissions had to be rejected because of missing or insufficient artwork.
Congratulations to Tobias Weimann who wins the EAE Award July 2005 for his site, LCARS Interface.

I conclude my Enterprise reviews with the anticipated rant about "These Are The Voyages".
The review of "Terra Prime" is finished. On a different note, there is a massive backlog of items that I deem important and that I will work up with the highest priority: updates in the starship database, new race and planet inconsistencies, small corrections everywhere. All other updates and particularly user submissions will have to wait.
Read the review of "Demons".
Here comes the review of "In a Mirror, Darkly".

The starships and other facts from the recent episodes have been added.
"The Aenar" reviewed.
On a different note, the hotlinking policy of EAS has been revised. Hotlinking (or image leeching) is now disabled, as I am no longer willing to pay for gigabytes of mindless image posts in blogs or bulletin boards that are mostly not even recognizable as the work of EAS. Prior to complaining, please read the complete blurb if this concerns you in any fashion.
And here come "Babel One" and "United". Ships and facts from the latest episodes will be added later.
The review of "Observer Effect"
