So perhaps what this site needs isn't NEW IDEAS but OLD ADMINS.


I think you may have just hit the head on the nail, Matt...

In the shop I would really like to see more Astrophysics, and Borg items.  Here's idea.  Why not sell Command DRESS uniforms.  The only way to get those is to make them yourself.  If you sold them then I could finally have my dream of hosting the first ever Starfleet Command Officer's Formal.

this will not be a popular opionion but the old admins weren't perfect either.  They let a lot of situations fester that we are still dealing with today.  If they had moderated properly I think those problems would never have gotten to the state they are today. And the site had glitches then too.


and to give the new admin team their due, I think the front page of the site is better now.  And I do like the new look.  Just wish it was more functional.

Well it wouldn't have to be a web series in the vein of 'The Trek Life.' It could be a serious project, like the Captain's table, where ever new adventure could be set in a different time...sort of little short adventures. For example, the first ship that went to collect the Federation's cut from the Icotians. I've always wondered why there was never a follow up to the funniest episode Star Trek ever produced.

I'd also like this place to be the location for Star Trek FanFiction.

Oh.... and as I've mentioned before, I think that Simon & Schuster could do a lot more here with information on all the Star Trek books.

Seconded.  I also wish the site would seperate the books and products board and encourage trek authors to comment here.  Many of them are regular at trekbbs, why shouldn't they be regular posters here?

Yea...  They did try startrekbooks.com, but it just doesn't have enough information.  (Memory Beta is more useful.)


And it's been ages since I've seen KRAD or any of the others here.
