- Ex Astris Scientia
claims this site is a classic and I am a legend...
The STArchive is dedicated to provide the most accurate and most
reliable information about all ships and all places ever mentioned in Star
Trek. Further features include a well-researched history of the vessels
named Enterprise. The site also hosts an FTP archive with various concise
reference guides every fan should have. After many years with the same
interface the site has recently been upgraded to a dynamic concept that
facilitates navigation and improves the overall appearance. The revisions
being rather subtle, it is pleasant to see how the new STArchive continues
to defy showy web design fashions. The STArchive has recently celebrated
its tenth anniversary on the web, it is still *the* classic reference site
nearly every other Trek webmaster, including myself, has been borrowing
from. I thought this would be a fine opportunity to thank its webmaster D.
Joseph Creighton for his tireless work. The EAE Award goes to the
STArchive, a living legend in the Trek online community!
It delivers heavy-looking
but no cake. I am still grateful.

The Star Trek Archive was started in early 1990 and was simply an FTP
host for posted USENET articles. It still remains in use.
The web site proper was introduced September 2 1994.
The Okudagram console was first established in 1995 as a means of
offering a simplistic GUI interface. Other than the logo change in 1998,
the site had kept this look for nearly a decade. It was "spiffy" for its
time, relying on an Apache server-side imagemap modification to allow for
clickable regions and then adopting a client-side imagemap in 1998 using
the <map> tag.
As of today, that splash page image has finally been retired.
