15 Sep 2017

And here are my comments on the revelation what the Klingon sarcophagus ship is about.

14 Sep 2017

Worf is on a quest for his father, and so is Data, in a manner of speaking. See our Observations in TNG: "Birthright I". Our friends at TrekCore have the complete HD screen cap gallery of the episode.

11 Sep 2017

Only 12 days left. Here is my perhaps final news round-up with a summary of recent media coverage on Discovery and my comments.

09 Sep 2017

It was and still is my intention not to analyze Discovery at EAS before the series is on air. But since the media and many fans welcome the totally new look of the Klingons and inept explanation attempts abound, here is my article on the new Klingons that I have been holding back so far.

I have also prepared the site structure for the Discovery episode guide and reviews. There is nothing to see yet, but the new section will give Discovery the same coverage as all other Star Trek series and films. And one more thing, for Discovery the abbreviation DIS (not DSC) will be used at EAS. This is not meant derisive but in line with VOY (not VGR) and ENT (not ETP). Memory Alpha beat me to it and already uses the same notation.

04 Sep 2017

Only 19 days left until the launch of Star Trek Discovery. Here is a news round-up on the USS Discovery bridge and other set designs of the upcoming series.

36 days left until the pilot episode of the new series. I have compiled another Discovery news round-up, with details about Michael Burnham, a new trailer and my comment on Jason Isaacs's statement about die-hard fans.

12 Aug 2017

I have added some more orthographic CGI views from the Official Starships Collection: Gorn ship (TOS-R: "Arena"), Klingon D5 cruiser and a few more. Thanks to Jörg! We also noticed some substantial differences between the Klingon deuterium tanker and the D5 that we so far thought were largely identical.

10 Aug 2017

Only 44 days until Star Trek Discovery goes on air. Here is another production news round-up, with more about Klingons and starships, and with some comments.

02 Jul 2017

In a second brand new article related to the one about the shuttle Alice, we show the various Redresses of the Type-9 Shuttle Cockpit that were created for other Starfleet shuttles, but also for some alien ships in Star Trek Enterprise.

01 Jul 2017

Jörg and I have completed a new article about the Redresses of Alice. We investigate how the life-size mock-up and how the CG model was modified for the Arkonian shuttle and the Tellarite shuttle that appeared in Star Trek Enterprise.

09 Feb 2017

As a further step to improve the usability of this site, I edited the intra-page navigation bars that can be found on many pages. This could have been done with a few easy CSS edits if Frontpage hadn't left a huge amount of garbage in the code (such as line break tags with links on them) that took me hundreds of search-and-replace passes until they were clean.

06 Feb 2017

Read my review of Hive, the third volume of the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection (please scroll down).

One thing is for certain, it won't be by playing it safe.
