Talking about rescaling, I almost forgot to mention that Alex Jaeger of ILM confirms my suspicion that the new Enterprise was designed smaller (366m length) and scaled up as late as for the VFX shots. I keep the size at 302m for now, but I have included according comments.

18 Jun 2009

Following the example of other major Trek sites, EAS is on Twitter for a test phase. Although the options are underwhelming and there may be no other way but retyping my update notices word by word to get them into Twitter, I'm giving it a chance.

15 Jun 2009

03 Jun 2009

This month's EAE Award goes to HeroComm. Congratulations! Note that after an uninterrupted succession of ten (!) years this may be the last monthly EAE Award. The reason is that very few deserving sites are left, and hardly any new ones are created. Award application will remain open though.

02 Jun 2009

Updated with information from "Star Trek XI": Races with Changing Faces - Major Races, Planet Mutations, Re-Uses of the Vasquez Rocks Location and some more.



27 May 2009

Thanks for all the encouraging feedback! I forgot to mention that the vast majority of responses to my take on "Star Trek XI" has been supportive or at least judicious. We don't have to agree on everything, but we should always keep an open mind.

26 May 2009

Owing to the numerous inquiries and complaints about my "Star Trek XI" policy and (sad but true) attacks against me in the wake of the new movie, here is a Star Trek XI FAQ. I would prefer to care about real updates over always justifying my views and decisions, but in the current hype I don't seem to have another choice.

25 May 2009

Star Trek XI Ship Classes, now with an accurate Enterprise side view by Gus and with more information about the other Starfleet vessels. In addition, there are several new side views especially of Earth Ship Classes thanks to Doug Drexler.

Heresy alert! Here is my write-up about the size of the new Enterprise.

15 May 2009

Here is my summary of the Star Trek XI Inconsistencies, at least a first draft that will have to be updated often. I have also fixed the the proportions of the side view of the (still some 300m long) Enterprise.

13 May 2009

Next round of the due updates: Star Trek XI Ship Classes, now with most of the information from the actual movie. And no, the Enterprise is still "only" 300m long.

12 May 2009

New: In-depth analysis of the time travel in "Star Trek XI", timeline update and still more guest reviews

11 May 2009

A whole bunch of new guest reviews and finally my own review of "Star Trek XI". And one important request: As hard as I am working on it, it will take several weeks to update just the key sections of this website with the new information. Don't bug me. I have many pages of notes. I am reading and reviewing other people's findings all the time. There is nothing "wrong" if EAS still shows facts that were perfectly valid until last week!

10 May 2009

24 guest reviews and counting! I saw the movie last night, and I will need another day for my extensive review.

05 May 2009

Now that more and more ordinary people have the opportunity to see "Star Trek XI", everyone is invited to take the poll or, even better, submit a review.

04 May 2009

Just a few small updates: Mike Okuda's patch collection in the 602 Club is completely identified, Talos IV gets a facelift for "The Cage" (remastered), and the USS Centaur shrinks to 210 meters.

09 Apr 2009

As the world premiere of Abrams' reboot of Star Trek has taken place in Sydney, the first written spoilers confirm my apprehensions. Note that I do not wish to receive or distribute spoilers or discuss them with anyone though. I will not get around watching and reviewing the movie eventually, but that may not be too soon.

07 Apr 2009

Two more DS9 reviews: "Starship Down" and "Little Green Men".

04 Apr 2009

The EAE Award for April 2009 goes to digitally efx'd geometry. Congratulations!

02 Apr 2009
