May 18th, 2002 Parts of Media Library moved

May 15th, 2002 ENT Guide update
ENT Guide: Javascript search, episode files and season overview were updated. In preparation: a search function for the TOS Guide.
May 5th, 2002 ENT Guide search function
ENT Guide: a Javascript search function has been integrated which allows you to quickly access all 26 episodes of the first season, but also intelligently search for key words and plot elements of the episodes, e.g. the use of the transporter or the appearance of Porthos. Similiar search functions are planned for the other Guides, whose single episode files can now be accessed directly via links (see TV Guide links at the left, for example).
May 4th, 2002 ENT Guide update
ENT Guide: Episode files for episodes 018-026 added, completing the first season of the series. Moreover, the season 1 overview has been completed by the still missing entries.
Apr 27th, 2002 Commemoration
My condolences to the families of the victims, students, teachers and all others immediately concerned by yesterday's unbelievable massacre at the Gutenberg Gymnasium in Erfurt. I'm shocked and sad in view of the level of violence now possible even in European schools.

The series overview and the season 1 overview are already avaiable.

March 7th, 2002 Webspace problems / Episode Guides updated
Media Library: The Endgame archives are down, and unfortunately I don't have sufficient webspace anymore to save them on my main domain again. For the same reasons, the extension of the picture gallery will be difficult. Therefore I ask everyone who can and wants to support me with a fair amount of free, permanent webspace to contact me.
ST:DS9 Guide: The complete season 4 is a now avaiable in new design, as well as the respective season overview, which is now avaiable in English as well. Two missing German episode files were added.

March 1st, 2002 Big update of Media Library
Media Library: grand opening of the picture gallery, which will replace the collection of screenshot archives from now on, offering a far more complete collection of high quality pictures on selected themes. For the beginning, there are 18 directories with Star Trek: Voyager screenshots, offering more than 500 images on astrometrics and the most important relationships aboard, which I've selected from over 10,000 (!) shots from seasons 5, 6 and 7 in the last days. Of course, this is a nice possibility to remember the ups and downs of Voyager's journey. In the next time, sections for the ships, aliens of Voyager, but also the other series and the movies will follow, in order to build up a superlative gallery.
Feb 25th, 2002 Endgame screenshots (4)
Media Library: The forth and last screenshots archive for the Voyager series finale "Endgame" with 50 new pictures in DVD quality is now avaiable.
Feb 24th, 2002 Update of Dimension Today / FAQ reworked

Feb 15th, 2002 Off topic: Save Futurama!
As you might already know, FOX intends not to renew the popular sci fi series "Futurama" for another season. Since I know that many Trek fans are Futurama fans as well, I ask you to sign the currently running online petition, which already has almost 50,000 votes and therefore a real chance to change the minds of the network executives.

Jan 15, 2002 The Star Trek Dimension is now permanently avaiable at the new domain: www.stdimension.net!
As you may have experienced, the old com-Domain of this website has not returned with the new year. Unfortunately, I've lost it in the ongoing "war" with my old provider Puretec, that has repeatedly harmed this website with unlawful acts, misinformation and insufficient and delayed service. Today, with the launch of  www.stdimension.net, the move to a new and hopefully better webspace provider is finished, and this site will finally be able to return to normal operation after almost 3 months of webspace-related difficulties and problems. --Chris
Community: In the course of the domain launch, a whole set of new banners (six versions) has been released, which also take advantage of the design extensions made in last November.
Jan 14, 2002 New wallpaper avaiable
Media Lib: A new high quality wallpaper created by the webmaster is now avaiable in the resolutions 800x600 and 1024x768.

Nov 18-24, 2001 Star Trek Dimension Relaunch
After the Dimension has been not accessible for most parts for one week and one day, and after more than three weeks in which the site could not be updated because of the server move, the site is back today and better than ever before. This website is now not only hosted by a new provider, resulting in more space and no traffic limits anymore. In a site-wide update - the most extensive one since 1 year -, the site was optimized, cleared from many errors, missing links and inconsistencies und equipped with new functions. Additionally, there are a number of content- and design-related updates and additions (as you can see already on this page), which strengthen the Dimension's status as one of the most sophisticated Trek sites in the internet. The changes in detail:

Site optimization:LCARS database system completely reworked, so that there shouldn't be any errors and missing links anymore. The multimedia files of the Cartography, Enterprise Companion, Utopia Planitia and ST Interactive are back on the main server. The sound effects library and music of the Media Library is finally completely online again, and content saved on other servers was reuploaded, if necessary. The relative links were reworked for a even more consistent site structure and better user handling; introduction of new "up" links on every page.

Design changes: Complete redesign of the projects page with lots of new, exciting graphic elements; design changes on frontpage and the navigation bar; redesign of Investigating Trek.

Updates: Introduction, FAQ, requirements and many other pages reworked; chronology of (German) LCARS database now with images; guest book back online; new author's page and search function; big update of Gag Trek and many new multimedia files in Enterprise Companion.

-Important- Naturally, a complete relaunch can result in some problems one hasn't thought of. As I can't look through several thousands of HTML pages online, I'd be glad if you report all potential errors to me.

Nov 10, 2001 Server move IV - in progress
The German site is already offline and will be relaunched next week. The international site is still partly online (though most parts are not accessible anymore), but will follow over the course of next week. After successful completion (by the end of next week at the latest), all parts of the Dimension will be avaiable again at the known domains. Contact adress for the time being is ruehl@primacom.net.
Nov 6, 2001 Server move III - delay... unfortunately
As there hasn't happen anything until early this week, I called my provider and now it seems as if a server move could very well take 2 weeks. I therefore request a little more patience; the relaunch will (hopefully) be done early next week. At least I can promise now that it will be definitely worth a visit ;-) In the meantime, I put the disabled parts of the site online again, as I should be save of exceeding the traffic limit that early in the month.
