'Why such an odd name for a home page?' you're probably
asking yourself right now. There's a perfectly cogent explanation for that.
I created this page three years ago while I was working as an intern at
Northern Telecom Ltd. in Nepean, Ontario. The department I was working
for, STP Performance and Modelling, was designated sub-division 7M, department
24. The name has since stuck, particularly because I haven't thought
to re-name the darn thing.
Some of you are going to notice the slight change in this site's style.
Now that I've finally escaped the evil clutches of the University of Alberta
I've decided to move back towards the basics, which means fewer frames.
That's not to say I'm going to forget about them completely, though.
Like everything else in life, HTML programming is a process of constant
learning. There's also this thing called Java that I'm still learning
Yeah, I'm a fan of Star Trek. You really want to make something of it?
Funny thing is, I wasn't always this way. I'd probably have to go back
to around 1989 or 1990 before I really got interested in a phenomenon that's
lasted for over 30 years now. It boggles the mind how one man's idea of
the future can have such persistence. Then again, it just goes to
show us that positive uniting forces do exist in this universe. Gene
Roddenberry's legacy will likely be just as strong another 30 years from
What's Here At This Station
I've become increasingly obsessed with Star Trek ever since I accidentally
stumbled upon the Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise",
one of the best shows ever to be produced for that series. I have now watched
nearly every Star Trek show in existence from every series and every motion
picture (the bad ones are only foggy memories now). Not only that, I've
started reading the published novels, and a couple of years ago I began
writing my own Star Trek fan fiction. The only thing I haven't done
yet is attend a Star Trek convention, and only because I've been more concerned
with paying for my education. The fun stuff can wait a little longer!
To keep this site a respectable size, I won't have any digital images
of Star Trek here (I mean, hey, there are already hundreds of other sites
out in this vast internet that have pictures, and they'll likely have all
the images I've got anyway.) However, I've got plenty of links to
fill the void, and I mean plenty! There's a lot of good sites out
there (plus some mighty odd and wacky ones too!) related to Star Trek,
and I want to share with you some of places I've visited.
The Writers' Corner
Aside from the links, one very special part of this site is The
Writers' Corner, my tribute to one of the greatest collections of people
I've ever met on the internet: the Star Trek fan fiction community.
In The Writers' Corner you'll find lots of stuff related to the art of
writing Star Trek fan fiction, including my own collective works.
Both readers and authors alike should find this a worthwhile place to visit!
Places Where I'm Linked
U of A Star Trek Club. Naturally, I'd have a link to this university
club's esteemed website. After all, I did maintain the site while I was
part of the executive staff last year. You'll find my fingerprints all
over that place, especially the rather creative accounts of the club history.
2366 "Galaxy Class" Camaro. This car is a definite show-stopper! The
designers really pulled out the stops to make this car as hi-tech as possible
with today's most advanced automotive creature comforts. One of my life's
goals would have to be seeing this car in person - it deserves that much
