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 award but no cake. I am still grateful.
1 Jan 2005
And so begins another year of hope...
The STArchive celebrates its tenth year(!) on the web with a new domain name and a new look.

Dynamic. Streamlined. HTML and CSS validated. All of this should make my maintenance of the site easier. Hopefully, they'll make your visits more enjoyable, too.

For the morbidly curious (and to save you from trudging through the old news)...

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.
