Ex Astris Scientia Update Log http://www.eico-life.com Bernd Schneider's Star Trek Site en-us EAS 1998-2020 Ex Astris Scientia Update Log http://www.eico-life.com http://www.eico-life.com/eas-263x110.jpg Ex Astris Scientia Update Log I have replaced the blurry images in the articles Planets in TOS and TOS Remastered - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Planet Surfaces in TOS and TOS Remastered with HD caps. Thanks to Trek Caps and TrekCore for their effort of capping every Star Trek series! http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/tos_planets1.htm 28 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log The Corridor from the Transporter Room to Sickbay is a small set that was built for the first Star Trek feature film in 1979 and that, along with the transporter room, also appeared in many TNG episodes. Jörg has investigated all appearances of the corridor, also as seen from the sickbay office, over the course of 15 years. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/side-corridor.htm 20 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log No big news today, but a couple of updates that are worth mentioning. I have reworked the classic article on uniform changes with new pictures and information. There are new HD caps, especially of TOS characters, in the Galleries. Finally, the thumbnails in the section Product Reviews are bigger now. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/uniforms1.htm#uniforms 15 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log A new article by Jörg and Bernd looks at Starship Mutations, as they came to pass because stock footage of an older or different model version was used. They are usually hardly noticeable, but one episode is a complete mess in this regard. http://www.eico-life.com/articles/starship-mutations.htm 12 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Here is a new article on the The Evolution of the Vidiian Emblem, which appeared, in the commonly known form, on fewer occasions than we may have expected. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/vidiian_emblem.htm 11 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log A new speculative article by Ryan Dietz has the goal to diversify the starships of TOS. Also note that the layout of Canon Fodder has been reworked, with more legible font sizes and larger illustrations. http://canonfodder.eico-life.com/index.php?Starships:Diversifying_Starfleet_in_TOS 10 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log I have replaced all of the over 700 tiny pictures in episode and movie reviews with much bigger screen caps (HD where available). http://www.eico-life.com/index-episodes.htm 01 Jun 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log I have added a small gallery of Star Trek Picard Characters. http://www.eico-life.com/gallery/picard-characters.htm 29 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Rick Sternbach and Lee Cole designed various pictograms for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". Many of them appeared as stickers in the Star Trek: The Motion Picture Peel-Off Graphics Book. Our new article on Pictograms from the Star Trek: The Motion Picture Peel-Off Graphics Book identifies the logos from the book in the TOS movies and later appearances on Star Trek. Research by Jörg Hillebrand. Logo reconstructions by Brad Wilder. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/movie-pictograms.htm 19 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log New Poll: Do you like the idea of Strange New Worlds? http://www.eico-life.com/poll/poll.php 18 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log After months of rumors, the much-discussed prequel series with Captain Pike and Spock has finally officially been announced. It will be called Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. While this is what many fans have hoped and campaigned for, it is not what I want to see and what I think Star Trek needs right now. Read my thoughts and remember you have been warned. http://www.eico-life.com/new-series.htm#20200515 15 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Two new book reviews by Daniel Tessier: the brand-new TOS tie-in The Higher Frontier by Christopher L. Bennett and the classic TNG novel Requiem by Michael Jan Friedman and Kevin Ryan. http://www.eico-life.com/reviews/books-novels.htm#tng 13 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log See our Observations in PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego II", with everything notable about apples, footballs, hyposprays, Rikers, and more. http://www.eico-life.com/observations/pic_etinarcadiaegoii.htm 09 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log More than 20 years ago, neither decent screen caps nor the required bandwidth for heavily illustrated articles were available on the internet. It was a massive pile of work for Jörg and me, but we have eventually revamped nine of the oldest articles of EAS, replacing some 400 tiny pictures with much bigger ones (HD where available), correcting errors and, almost on a side note, adding the newest facts from Star Trek Picard. See The Evolution of the Romulans, The Evolution of Klingon Foreheads, Races with Changing Faces - Major Races, Races with Changing Faces - Other Races and more. Furthermore, there are just Picard-related updates (no layout changes) in the articles The Economy of the Federation, Alien Monocultures in Star Trek, Star Trek Clich¨¦s and Fictional Places on Earth. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/romulan_evolution.htm 01 May 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Humans, Romulans, Klingons and Cardassians are crazy about an ancient galactic puzzle, whose solution is both surprising and revealing. See our Observations in TNG: "The Chase". The complete HD screen cap gallery can be found at TrekCore. http://www.eico-life.com/observations/thechase.htm 26 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Here is our article with Observations in PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego I". Ghulion IV aka Coppelius has space flowers, synthetic butterflies, a familiar cat and more for us to see. http://www.eico-life.com/observations/pic_etinarcadiaegoi.htm 19 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Here are some more articles with updates from Star Trek Picard: The Evolution of the Romulan Emblem, The Evolution of the Starfleet Medical Emblem and Planet Mutations. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/romulan_emblem.htm#picard 17 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log All starships from Star Trek Picard are now in the Starship Database. Since the series qualifies as authentic looking Star Trek, the new entries can be found in the regular section of the database, spread across twelve different pages. Owing to the static nature of this site, it is not possible to maintain an overview of all vessels that specifically appeared in this one series. See the Curiosity class and Inquiry class, some new shuttles, Kaplan F17 aka La Sirena, Romulan ships, Borg ships and several more. Follow the "updated" signs. http://www.eico-life.com/schematics/starfleet_ships1.htm 12 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log More articles updated with facts from Star Trek Picard: The Evolution of the Federation Emblem, The Visual Continuity of Star Trek, Timeline - Post-Nemesis Era and several entries in the Treknology Encyclopedia. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/federation_emblem.htm 07 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log We have finished our article with Observations in PIC: "Broken Pieces". See how the pieces fit together in 286 pictures. http://www.eico-life.com/observations/pic_brokenpieces.htm 04 Apr 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Here is the first batch of articles with Picard-related updates (aside from some tiny changes that I wouldn't bother to list here): Spot the Difference, Artificial Lifeforms, Locating Starfleet Buildings in San Francisco, The Emblem of Starfleet Command. Much more will follow in the next couple of months. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/sf_command_emblem.htm 31 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Updated Poll: Rate the season finale, PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego II". http://www.eico-life.com/poll/poll.php 27 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log The first season of Star Trek: Picard ends with an exciting, emotional and meaningful episode. Read my review of PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego II". http://www.eico-life.com/episodes/pic1.htm#etinarcadiaegoii 27 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Here is our big article with Observations in PIC: "Nepenthe". We show everything interesting about the eponymous planet and the Troi-Riker home in 305 pictures. http://www.eico-life.com/observations/pic_nepenthe.htm 26 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Six journalists famously storm the bridge of the Enterprise-B at the beginning of "Star Trek Generations". They work for different news channels or agencies, but the logos actually visible in the movie are not quite the ones we would have expected to see. Our article about Reporters in "Star Trek Generations" investigates the logos and also the costumes in great detail. http://www.eico-life.com/inconsistencies/reporters.htm 22 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Updated Poll: Rate the latest episode, PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego I". http://www.eico-life.com/poll/poll.php 20 Mar 2020 00:00:00 GMT Ex Astris Scientia Update Log Picard and his crew arrive on Soji's homeworld where they meet familiar faces but also unexpected threats.
