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.



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.



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.



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".



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!
