While I'm at it: Romulan ships.

I am grateful for any additions and corrections, but please don't expect me to come up with the missing pages too soon.

18 Oct 2001

The galleries are down (again), and they won't return until I have found a permanent solution to my pressing webspace and traffic problem.

17 Oct 2001

I am alienated about a recent petition with thousands of signatures to change the Enterprise title theme, which (in contrast to the Akiraprise design) IMHO perfectly suits the series. Please go to the petition to keep the theme!

Uploaded review of "Strange New World".

There is a new and improved version of the Himalaya class (and refit).

09 Oct 2001

Due to popular request, here are reviews of "Broken Bow" and "Fight or Flight".

03 Oct 2001

The Starfleet Museum will celebrate its second anniversary on October, 10th. On this occasion Masao has created countless new ship patches, and there are some fantastic 3D scenes of the Lancaster class by Thomas Pemberton. The page structure has been rearranged too for faster loading.

At EAS, there is finally an episode section about DS9. I hope I will get the reviews of the final season done soon.



30 Sep 2001

Added Voyager reviews from "Lineage" to "The Void".

26 Sep 2001

Big update of the ASDB with many new images, especially of the Bradbury and Merced 3D models, and dozens of new sketches. Several new images in the EAS Fleet Yards too, thanks to Bob, Brian, Jay, and Peiper!

25 Sep 2001

My complaint about the new Enterprise ("Akiraprise") as being too new has been printed in the recent Entertainment Weekly magazine (see scan, thanks to Shik). Here's the link (gone) to the petition also mentioned in the article.

23 Sep 2001

I'm back with several updates on the links page and my delayed but cordial congratulations to Tara O'Shea, of Star Trek Voyager - Lower Decks, who wins the EAE Award for September 2001.

As the premiere of Enterprise is approaching, I have set up an Enterprise FAQ to explain my criticism about the new series. I don't mean to offend visitors who are looking forward to it, but just don't want to answer always the same questions again and again.

13 Sep 2001

This is not the time to go back to business as usual. I have written down a few thoughts about September 11th which may offer a positive perspective for the future.

11 Sep 2001

My condolences to the victims. And death to the cowardly bastards responsible for it!

08 Sep 2001

Happy Star Trek Day! Unfortunately I'm currently unable to celebrate this event the way it would deserve. Read here.

Thanks to Starfleet Command Quadrant 2 for their award!

06 Sep 2001

Please take a few seconds for the new poll about Enterprise.

New reviews of "Flesh and Blood" and "Shattered", the latter supplemented with an analysis of the time travel problems.



31 Aug 2001

The Wolf 359 Project has grown to a size where it can't be presented on one page any longer. I have divided it into pages about individual ships. There is some new information too, and Masaki's illustrations how the ships were built.

28 Aug 2001

Starfleet Museum update - added several new images and a page about the patrol ships of the Archer class and Curran class. Special thanks to Jay and Thomas!

Congratulations to Starship Class and Copernicus Ship Yards who win this month's EAE Award.

09 Jul 2001

New poll. You may guess what it's about. Here's a petition (link gone) I have decided to support. It won't help to get rid of the Akiraprise, but may at least tell TPTB that not everyone devotedly follows their silly ideas.

08 Jul 2001

The Enterprise is the Akira! I have never been so alienated about anything in Star Trek. Read here. EAS Today has been updated.

Thanks to Angel Swan for her award!

Free or inexpensive services and nothing but trouble: Read my rant on EAS Today.

15 Jun 2001

Thanks to Star Trek Sims Recruiting Network where EAS is Website of the Month, and to the Alpha Quadrant Sim Group for their Latinum Award!

11 Jun 2001

New 3D ships in the EAS Fleet Yards and the Starfleet Museum. Thanks to Jay, Thomas, Fabio, and Giorgio! The Kestrel class is presented with a long article.

05 Jun 2001

I have compiled a brief History of the Star Trek Universe, listing fairly all events from the Big Bang to the 31st century.

Thanks to USS Hyphron for their Latinum Award!

Außerdem gibt es noch einen Artikel über die Klingonenmutation aus der Jahresausgabe von Star Trek Weekly.



31 May 2001

Read the extensive "Endgame" review at Star Trek Dimension.

Congratulations to Brian Matthews of Stone Trek, winner of the EAE Award for June 20001 B.C.!

30 May 2001

Updated EAS Today. Do you think Star Trek is too American? Discuss at the SCN.

28 May 2001

Added reviews of "Unimatrix Zero" and "Imperfection".

25 May 2001

I have made a few updates to the Starship Articles.

Thanks to Starfleet Databank for their award!

21 May 2001

Added a few images to the Galleries, such as a rendition of Quark's Bar.

19 May 2001

Added a new page called EAS Today with the TrekToday headlines, a more or less regular editorial, and other features.

17 May 2001

Still three more bridge diagrams: Enterprise-C, Jem'Hadar ship, Dauntless. Enjoy!

16 May 2001

Now that it's official, tell your opinion about "Enterprise" in the new poll.

Due to popular request I have enabled the access to the bridge diagrams again, they are now back on the glorious EAS main server.

Due to Stratospheric problems it may happen that large files are not completely downloaded from there, because the server simply ends the transmission after a timeout of only a few seconds. In such a case, please try again. I affirm that the upload was complete.

15 May 2001

It sucks! The image galleries have been down for almost two days, and now the download size limit of MyToday has been decreased to 200 kilobytes. This means that most of the bridge diagrams can't be downloaded. I'm tired of moving everything around every few days, so they will stay offline for the time being. One request: Please don't mail me with suggestions to move to another server - well, unless you run a server yourself. I know there is no free provider with conditions that suit my needs, and with domain hosting I would have to pay a fortune for the traffic of EAS.

14 May 2001

Eight new bridge diagrams are up. Congratulations to Mark who wins the EAE Award for his site, TrekMania.

11 May 2001

It's official. The TOS prequel "Enterprise" has been announced by Paramount. Read the full story at TrekToday and my comment. I think that the new series will most likely damage the spirit of 35 years of Star Trek and will destroy its consistency. From what we know so far it's also one of the least imaginative science fiction premises ever. Sorry, but I don't have much hope. I can't help feeling this will be the end of Star Trek.

08 May 2001

I have added the three missing seasons of the TNG episode guide.



30 Apr 2001

I'm more than concerned about the new Pre-Starfleet series "Enterprise" which is taking shape - although not yet officially confirmed. Read my objections.

27 Apr 2001

Thanks a lot to Dan who has agreed to host the uncompressed fleet charts. Visit his site, Star Trek Minutiae!

26 Apr 2001

This is the last straw! Geocities really pisses me off. For the second time in only a few weeks they have deleted all files in my account and disabled the upload. This time I even obeyed their "friendly reminder" - which I received although I had already uploaded all the files - and used their silly page builder to prove I really want to maintain a site there. Since all attempts to move the large fleet charts in TIFF format somewhere else failed due to file size limits, I can no longer offer them for download.

23 Apr 2001

Grand opening of the new EAS Galleries with currently 550 images, covering all aspects of Star Trek. Thanks to MyToday, where the galleries are hosted for free without ads.

Considering that they must exist, I have added all ships from Wolf 359 to my official ship list.

The Starfleet Museum shows two new previews about Starfleet transports and Klingon ships.

I have also added an illustrated history of this site.

Außerdem gibt es noch einen neuen Artikel über Computerprobleme.

20 Apr 2001

New poll: Which season of DS9 did you enjoy most?

19 Apr 2001

All links reviewed and updated.

17 Apr 2001

I have added an article about the locations of Jefferies tubes on Starfleet ships.

12 Apr 2001

Several new ship patches in the Starfleet Museum and some smaller changes and updates.

Check my latest version of the Mosquito class and see the model of the Asia class refit Jay Hagen has created for Starfleet Command.

Thanks to Ben for his bridge comparison chart. Thanks to Lenny for his great top view of the Akira class.

Congratulations to TrekToday, winner of the April 2001 EAE Award!

Happy Easter! I will be offline for a couple of days.

05 Apr 2001

It's sickening! It's a complot! Once my domain is running again, I have discovered that Geocities has deleted my free account where I was keeping the fleet chart downloads, and that Nedstat has messed up my counters. Never get any free web services! Once you have them, you won't have the time to do anything else but fix them!

02 Apr 2001

Everything seems to be up and running again. Thanks a lot to Lucutus and to Tango Fleet for their awards!



30 Mar 2001

While I'm writing this, the EAS domains are down for 78 hours, because the "routine maintenance" of the server at Strato ended up in a disaster once again. 1.7 million customers are offline too, because Strato has no backup system! Of course, I could change my ISP, but I checked and there is absolutely no chance to get the unlimited traffic EAS urgently needs elsewhere - it's currently 20 gigabytes per month which would ruin me if I had to pay for it. Thanks for your understanding.

22 Mar 2001

Still more new stuff in the Starfleet Museum. Now almost 50 new images altogether!

21 Mar 2001

New in the Starfleet Museum: 3D scenes by Thomas, Fabio, and Brian, plus countless ship patches by Masao.

Thanks to Fredy for his award!

19 Mar 2001

Some new scans in the starship gallery, most notably five-view schematics of the Dauntless, and a terrific image of the Enterprise and Excelsior in the spacedock (Due to the server timeout the image may not load completely - please try "reload" in this case).

Many thanks to Quark's, to Trekstation and to Trekiweb for their awards!

13 Mar 2001

Congratulations to Benjamin who wins the EAE Award for his site Sektion 31.

12 Mar 2001

I hate scans with page folds, so it took some efforts to remove them from the Saber and Steamrunner diagrams. There are several more new images in the Starship Gallery.

There are again some updates to our Wolf 359 research, including a new photo of the Springfield.

Thanks to Syfy World and to Torben for their awards!

07 Mar 2001

New material about Wolf 359, including the long awaited photo of the Springfield class (Thanks a lot to Mike Okuda) and new facts about the Challenger class. Balapoel has provided his new ship recognition charts.

Finally, have a look at the ASDB mirror site set up by Dan Carlson.

05 Mar 2001

I have updated the links.

Thanks to USS Veldran for their award.

Finally, please support the petition to release the complete soundtrack of Star Trek II and III by James Horner.

01 Mar 2001

It is now possible to access the Sci-Fi Chat Network directly from EAS.



28 Feb 2001

There is a new poll about Voyager races and which of them you would like to see again.

Thanks a lot to Warp 13 for their Gold Award.

23 Feb 2001

After Geocities was so wise to disable off-site linking (thereby denying their members the possibility to make their sites public outside Geocities), I had the questionable pleasure of removing about a dozen banners. My apologies to all whose banners are gone. Please contact me when you have found a better server for them. The most disastrous effect is that none of the webring images loads any longer. This is why I leave all webrings once and for all.

22 Feb 2001

Help! I need some free webspace. Read about my experiences so far.

Neues von meiner Partnersite Voyager Center.

21 Feb 2001

The Voyager reviews of season 6 are almost complete now.

Thanks to the 5th Fleet for their award!

03 Jan 2001

The true New Millennium brings several new features and countless updates. The Fabrux class (idea by Lance) is new at the EAS Fleet Yards. The design tutorial shows how the ship was created.

Another tutorial describes how to retouch a scan. I have also compiled some notes on (Trek) website promotion.

There are some new ship images and updates of the starship articles, starship list and inconsistencies. There is a new page of fun too.

Finally, navigation bars have been added to many pages.
