July

21 Jul 2021

Many new pictures of Star Trek Discovery Characters and Star Trek Discovery Sets and Props, now up to date with selected publicity shots from season 5.

20 July 2024

I have added over 30 new high-resolution images of Small Federation Vessels, mostly from the Official Starships Collection.

18 July 2024

My reviews of the next two episodes of Prodigy season 2: "The Fast and the Curious" and "Is There in Beauty No Truth?". The episodes take a break from this season's big arc. But although they tell stories in their own right and in the best tradition of episodic Trek, they don't live up to this potential.

14 July 2024

And here is the next update to one of our old articles: Observations in TNG: "The Loss".

13 July 2024

Taking a short break from Prodigy season 2 reviews. I have added new observations by Jörg, more references and better pictures to the article on Observations in TNG: "Final Mission".

12 July 2024

PRO: "Imposter Syndrome" is a well-rounded episode in my view, with a very entertaining story and a surprising twist at the end.

10 July 2024

After four episodes of action, PRO: "Observer's Paradox" is a filler episode in my view, and a rather bland one at that.

07 July 2024

Read my review of "Temporal Mechanics 101". The episode is a bit of a mess, not only as the temporal effects are concerned but also with regard to general story logic and to character interactions.

06 July 2024

And here is the review of the third episode of Prodigy season 2, "Who Saves the Saviors". It consists of two story threads separated in time, of which one is considerably more interesting than the other.

03 July 2024

Here is my review of the entertaining season opener PRO: "Into the Breach I/II".

 

June

30 June 2024

There are many new observations by Jörg, more references and better pictures in the article on Observations in TNG: "Future Imperfect".

As already announced, EAS will not have timely coverage on Prodigy season 2, all of which will be dumped on Netflix tomorrow. There is no chance for me to watch and review more than one or two episodes per week (and probably interrupted by LOW season 5). I will avoid spoilers and I will not discuss PRO season 2 with anyone until I have seen it.

29 Jun 2024

Two more revised Voyager season 5 reviews: the deplorable "11:59" and the awesome "Relativity".

28 Jun 2024

Here is the last new story by Travis for now, Patriotism. The Patriot Confederacy has seceded from the Federation but is threatened by both Federation and Romulan interests. Unknown to all parties, this also invokes a patriotic crisis within Cell 51.

25 Jun 2024

Our away team (Anke, Florian and Jan from the Memory Alpha Podcast, plus Thorsten and Bernd) visited the 1701 Museum in Eberswalde on May 19, 2024. Here is an image gallery of our tour.

24 Jun 2024

Independence Day by Travis Anderson. As the growing tensions between Starfleet and the Patriots tighten, a new diplomatic crisis develops nearby. Starfleet Intelligence has agents in place and the SID wants to exfiltrate them. So Macen and two new SID crews go in. Only to receive the surprises of their lives.

Lin Jingqiu has identified some more Chinese characters in Soong's Labs.

23 Jun 2024

I have added a brief essay on whether Star Trek is or should be considered a multiverse. There are also a couple of new chairs.

22 Jun 2024

Jörg and I appear in a number of videos, in which we talk about how we became fans, how EAS was created and how the fandom has changed, among numerous other topics. I have collected them on the page EAS on Video. Thanks to the Memory Alpha Podcast, to Trek Time and to all other participants!

20 Jun 2024

Hidden Corners by Travis Anderson. President Ardra's administration gets investigated by the Rockford Detective Agencies, Outbound Ventures, and eventually Starfleet and Federation Security as the Federation Council must choose whether or not to act upon the evidence.

15 Jun 2024

Canon criteria and interpretations have become controversial in fandom. I have compiled a list of discrepancies between EAS and Memory Alpha, which exist despite the common goal to make sense of in-universe material without speculation.

14 Jun 2024

New story by Travis Anderson: Ascendancy Rising. The Federation reaches out to the Ascendancy only to receive a great surprise. A surprise that leads from the Gamma to the Beta Quadrant.

08 Jun 2024

Jörg's new article The History of the Betazoid Emblem describes how a fan design accidentally became canon in Star Trek Picard in 2020 and has appeared repeatedly since then.

06 Jun 2024

Everything is set at EAS for Prodigy season 2, all 20 episodes of which will be released on July 1 - which is insane. There is no way I will binge-watch the show (or myself) to death. It will take several months to catch up with the reviews and updates, and I will limit my social media activities until then.

02 Jun 2024

I have been so busy with the updates related to the final Discovery season the past three days that I need to relax and watch Voyager. Here are two more retro reviews: VOY: "Juggernaut" and VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me".

01 Jun 2024

And here are the Federation starships from Discovery season 5.

 

May

31 May 2024

I have added the alien ships from Discovery season 5 to the starship database. There are also various other updates with facts from the latest episodes, such as about time travel in DIS.

Reviving the Poll: Which live-action season was the best?

30 May 2024

Star Trek Discovery ends with an episode that is action-loaded and ties up most of the loose ends but is also verbose at times without telling a lot. Here is my review of "Life, Itself".

24 May 2024

Discovery doesn't take a break from action in its penultimate episode. Here is my review of "Lagrange Point".

17 May 2024

This week's episode comes with an exciting and a contemplative plot thread, of which one fails to convince me. Read my review of DIS: "Labyrinths".

12 May 2024

The upgrade of the oldest TNG Observations continues with "Hide and Q" and "Too Short a Season": better pictures, more references, some additions and error corrections. There are also quite a few new chairs. Special thanks to Josh Hardgrove!

11 May 2024

There are many new observations by Jörg and better pictures in the article on Observations in TNG: "Reunion".

09 May 2024

Here is my review of DIS: "Erigah", a solid mid-season finale that brings one arc to a preliminary conclusion and establishes a new, more dangerous adversary.

04 May 2024

Another old article supplemented with new observations by Jörg and better pictures: Observations in TNG: "Legacy".

03 May 2024

It looks for a while like DIS: "Whistlespeak" could become a classic in the vein of "Who Watches the Watchers", until massive problems in the back story become obvious.

 

April

25 Apr 2024

Read my review of DIS: "Mirrors". The episode comes with two big reveals, of which the second one works a lot better.

24 Apr 2024

Over 60 new or significantly improved images of Alpha and Beta Quadrant Starships, Part 1 and Part 2.

I have also updated over 20 articles in the past couple of days, such as Appearances of the Romulan Warbird (animated Warbirds), Analysis of the Qualor II Surplus Depot (summary and new HD images), Commercially Available Chairs in Star Trek (a few new finds) and several more that now have references to recent episodes.

19 Apr 2024

Here are my review of DIS: "Face the Strange" and my analysis of the time travel effects in this fun episode.

13 Apr 2024

Lower Decks has been canceled, Strange New Worlds has been renewed. Here is my comment.

12 Apr 2024

My review of DIS: "Jinaal". After a promising start of the season, things begin to fall apart in the third episode.

10 Apr 2024

I have added still 90 more images (mostly from the Shipyards books) to the gallery pages for Delta Quadrant, Part 1 and Delta Quadrant, Part 2.

06 Apr 2024

And here comes DIS: "Under the Twin Moons". The second episode can't quite keep up with the premiere, not primarily because of less action but because of the awkward ways that characters get involved in the story.

05 Apr 2024

Here is my review of DIS: "Red Directive". The fifth and final season begins with a good amount of action, decent character interaction and a galactic mystery with a connection to classic Trek.

 

March

31 Mar 2024

Update for the alien fleet chart Alpha & Beta Quadrant. I have added more than a dozen ships, recalculated some sizes and replaced the depictions with better ones where necessary. Note that only ships are included whose design sizes are known or that can be scaled with a reasonable margin of error.

28 Mar 2024

A new article by Jörg and me looks at Redresses of the Romulan Scout. This article has been in the making for almost two decades. And it will probably have to be updated as soon as next week, after the Discovery season 5 premiere has aired. So stay tuned.

23 Mar 2024

There are many Chinese characters in Soong's places in TNG: "Datalore" and "Brothers". Most of them can be identified by now, although not all of them make sense. Read in a new article by Lin Jingqiu.

18 Mar 2024

Over 50 new images of Discoverse Federation Vessels. I have also replaced all database side views of 23rd century and 32nd century Discovery ships with larger versions, where available.

16 Mar 2024

Fleet chart update: Discoverse Federation and Discoverse Klingon. There are a few new ships, and the side views are much better now. A big thanks to Pundus for the kind support! While I was at it, I also added large images from Eaglemoss publications to the Discovery Klingon Ship Gallery.

09 Mar 2024

I have finally added the starships from Star Trek Picard to the Federation fleet chart, which has therefore grown enormously.

Speaking of sections that have not seen an update in years, I think Star Trek + Design deserves an EAE Award. Congratulations, Eno!

02 Mar 2024

Massive ship gallery update with some 120 new images of Various Starfleet Vessels and (now on a separate page) of Wolf 359 & DS9TM Starfleet Vessels. Many thanks to Nathan Horton.

 

February

22 Feb 2024

Site maintenance: I fixed the broken links to the relocated TrekCore TNG Blu-ray galleries in all 145 TNG Observations articles.

21 Feb 2024

The oldest TNG Observations are reworked up to "The Battle" now. I also wrote a script to scan the whole site for missing resources, thanks to which I could fix two dozen broken thumbnails or image links that had come to pass with the latest improvements.

17 Feb 2024

Once again, there are over 50 new images in the Starship Gallery, mostly on the pages for the Vulcans and for the Miranda Class.

11 Feb 2024

Here are two more revised Voyager season 5 reviews, of "The Fight" and "Think Tank". I have also updated the oldest TNG Observations up to "The Last Outpost" with corrections, better images and more references.

10 Feb 2024

Many new additions to our Observations in TNG: "Remember Me", including a few surprising discoveries about re-used footage.

04 Feb 2024

Besides adding new findings by Jörg (currently in season 4), I have started to improve the oldest articles in the Observations section. I have included more HD screen caps, fixed or added references and harmonized the formatting in Observations in TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint" and the next four episodes.

03 Feb 2024

I have added many new items to our article with Observations in TNG: "Family". And the usual hint: Jörg posts new stuff at Twitter and at Mastodon every day, currently about his favorite episode "Remember Me".

 

January

27 Jan 2024

Over 50 new images in the Starship Gallery, mostly on the pages for the Cardassians and for the Excelsior.

20 Jan 2024

Here are two more revised Voyager season 5 reviews, of "The Disease" and "Course: Oblivion". Not the greatest episodes, still a pleasure to watch again after several years.

13 Jan 2024

Many new entries and images in the article with Observations in TNG: "Suddenly Human". Keep watching Jörg's Twitter account for the latest findings.

06 Jan 2024

Many more new images in the Starship Gallery, such as on the pages for Dominion and Allies, Constitution and Ambassador.

02 Jan 2024

I'm in the course of replacing many old (scanned) images in the Starship Gallery with much better versions, such as notably the annotated orthographic views. Other than that, there is a lot of ongoing site maintenance without a specific focus.

01 Jan 2024

Happy New Year 2024!
