23 Dec 1998

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 1999!

22 Dec 1998

Our report on the Star Trek World Tour is online, along with many photos.

21 Dec 1998

Finally I have managed to scan some images of my starship models. They can be found on the Enterprise-E page and the new page for the other starship models.

A report on the Star Trek World Tour in Düsseldorf is almost finished and will be online tomorrow.

18 Dec 1998

Rearranged and updated the links and made a number of small improvements.

15 Dec 1998

6 more starship designs are online.

14 Dec 1998

After having some severe problems with my computer, everything is running again and the site will be extended and updated within the next few days. I will put up some new starship designs and my buddy Thorsten will report on our recent visit of the Star Trek World Tour in Düsseldorf.

Thanks go to Robert "Baloo" Dunehew for awarding me his Award of Excellence. Please visit his site and have a good time there.



30 Nov 1998

I have just received the Federation Shipyards Award of Excellence and added a separate award page.

The image galleries have been supplemented and reorganized.

23 Nov 1998

Some more images for the new Treknology glossary are still missing, however, it is officially online now (page 1, page 2), along with a few minor updates and corrections.

19 Nov 1998

Added a few links and done some minor modifications.

The announced Treknology term glossary is almost finished. Check out the preliminary version: page 1, page 2.

10 Nov 1998

Pedro's Shiporama has provided a new schematic of the Prometheus class.

09 Nov 1998

It was about time to update the links.



28 Oct 1998

6 more starship designs are online.

26 Oct 1998

I have completed the reviews of DS9 and Voyager time travel episodes.

A corrected image of the kitbashed Excelsior class from DS9: "A Time to Stand" is online.

23 Oct 1998

The six new starships from the DS9 Technical Manual are online in my starship list. The odd and inconsistent ship designs demonstrate that Kitbashing is no way to enrich the Star Trek universe. In my opinion, the responsible production designers should be fired and the kitbashed models destroyed. Still, the inconsistencies have to be handled. I will retouch the images as soon as I have more information on the ship classes.

22 Oct 1998

The starship list has been updated, now including new and official schematics of the Prometheus class and Freedom class (thanks to Jim Stevenson's Starship Schematics). I have recently obtained six starship images from the new DS9 Technical Manual (thanks in advance to Frank Gerratana's Starfleet Ship Designs). Though official, these ships are not only very bizarre, but the schematics as well as the specs are also highly inaccurate and need to be cleaned up. I will put them up in a few days.

19 Oct 1998

Joined the Starfleet Spacedock Webring.

New ship designs will be up within the next few days, the promised extensive Treknology glossary is under heavy construction and will soon be finished.

I have reviewed and updated all of my links.

The missing DS9 and Voyager time travel episodes will be up within the next days, including the most extensive review of the most complicated Star Trek episode ever, "Year of Hell".

28 Jul 1998

The links page and the starship list have been updated.

21 Jul 1998

Time travel is probably the most interesting, but also the most confusing topic in science fiction. So it took a lot of time to consider and reconsider my time travel theories which are online now.

15 Jul 1998

I have updated the starship list and changed some webring memberships.

13 Jul 1998

It is alarming how many links become outdated within only a few weeks, so another update was necessary. New: a weekly (or at least frequently) changing surprise image

Furthermore my links page has been updated.

03 Jul 1998

21 Jan 1998

Greetings! It's "Tuesday" and finally my Star Trek pages are online. I hope I can give you useful information on building the Enterprise-E model kit. Feel free to enjoy (or disapprove of) my starship designs. Also check the other links on the homepage. Since photographing, scanning and image processing requires some efforts, this website shows a lack of images. However, I intend to change this soon.
