A new article by Jörg and me examines Variations of the Type-7 Shuttle in great detail.

Sifting through the Add-Your-Link database, I have weeded out no less than 38 links, almost 10% of the total number, because they are gone for good. And this after only a couple of months since the last complete check! I have also removed all links to Freeservers, a dubious web host with multiple pop-ups and "error messages" that smell like spyware installation.

Just a few corrections this week, and some "The Voyage Home" nitpicking.

I have slightly reworked the TOS Section, replacing all blurry old episode pics and editing my sometimes clumsy text.

Site security: In a double strike against spammers, all PHP forms (like the Contact) are now using special filters to protect myself as well as to prevent criminal misuse of my forms for covert dissemination of spam. Forms with typical spam language and with fraudulent characteristics will be rejected.

No new content because I have been busy fixing display errors and some hardly noticeable yet annoying bugs in the cryptic CGI scripts for the Site Search (now with a better page content preview), Guestbook and Add Your Link features.

This month's EAE Award goes to Steve's Star Trek TOS Site. Congratulations!

The Treknology Encyclopedia A-K, L-Z has become a substandard part of this site, with insufficiently quoted facts and randomly supplemented with trivia and apocrypha. This is why I have decided to revise the whole section with a better distinction of canon and non-canon. Furthermore I have moved all secondary (one-time) technology to the supplement A-K, L-Z in order to allow the database to grow. Please note that it is a work in progress.

The descriptions of DS9 Season 2 are available.

On the occasion of the recent site redesign I have updated and extended the EAS Site History.

The restructuring and transition to SSI and CSS is finished for the most part - the by far biggest redesign of this site in eight years! Some tweaking with images and CSS formats remains to be done. There are probably still many errors left, as I had to recode almost 500 pages and 6 scripts mostly manually. The main index will be redesigned later. I will also compile an overview of the changes and the new techniques used at EAS.

I am in the course of restructuring the site and creating a new look. This may result in dead links and layout errors. You don't need to report them, as it is a transitional phase for several days.

I have added the DS9 Character Bios.

Read Travis Anderson's new novel in the Special Investigations Division series, entitled The Romulan Mission.

A couple of updates in the Starship Database, most notably new renders and thumbnails of some vessels.

Whatever they did at GMX, the e-mail account seems to be working again.

Due to the overzealous spam protection of GMX Mail I am not able to receive any messages sent through any of these forms: EAS Feedback, JoAT, Particle Submission. As there is no hope of getting GMX to fix the bug I have to switch all scripts to an extra e-mail address which is going to take a couple of days.

Congratulations to UFPCroatia, winner of the February 2006 EAE Award.
