End of Year Message

Another year at TrekCore ends... What a year it has been! This is TrekCore's fourth year online! We usually post a celebratory message in November on the anniversary, but the myself and Adam (webmasters) have been very busy exploring the world! I have been away from my home in Canada for 14 months traveling and working, and Adam is in the 3rd month of his around the world trip. Thus many, many of the updates this year are due to our incredible group of volunteer staff! Special thanks (in no particular order) go out to Bob, Doug, Dave, Randy, and Sam - without your dedication vines would have grown over the site this year!

So what were some big highlights this year?

Well, it started out with all of us being amazed by the generous support from the community for our fundraiser. The tribble auction and photo sales (super thanks to Michael Grecco) helped ensure TrekCore's long future!

We expanded our YouTube Channel to have over a thousand videos!

We got on Twitter!

We created an Audio section with tons of new audio and better navigation!

We started the Theme Galleries project to help make navigating our hundreds of thousands of images a little easier!

Of course, Star Trek came out in theatres and surprised everyone by its popularity! In the summer we saw the largest number of viewers ever for our site. And lately everyone has been enjoying the amazing high definition screencaps from the movie!

Our home page was redesigned to help with navigation to our multimedia. As you know, it includes other site headlines so you never miss the latest Star Trek news. Starting today, the homepage now displays TrekCore headlines by default (where before it would display the mixed headlines by default). Do not worry, the mixed headlines are still there, you just need to click the "All" link to see them. This change was necessitated by the revival of the franchise this year - when we first started designing the new page, the other Star Trek websites were not updating nearly as much as they are now. So to ensure our own updates aren't lost in the news, we've made this change.

The Omega Sector (our forums) were upgraded to version 3 of Invision Board and redesigned! There are many more ways to interact now!

Those are the highlights I can recall at the moment... So many little updates throughout the year have really helped flesh the site out.

So what can you expect in 2010?

We're going continuing to screencap the first 10 movies in HD!

We will see many more episodes of TOS in HD!

Star Trek Online will be making a big splash in February when it launches! We'll continue to bring coverage of that!

More audio caps!

More contests!

Many more high quality product images - we now have access to all the official images and will be incorporating them into the site.

New games? If Star Trek Online does well, we should see some new game announcements!

No fundraiser! (I'm super excited about NOT having to ask for money!)

So thanks for visiting! Thanks to those sending us emails pointing out bugs or errors and for the positive feedback. We read it all and even fish through the SPAM to make sure nothing gets missed!

What do you want to see in 2010? How did we do in 2009? Let use know by hitting the Comment button below!

P.S. I recently saw Patrick Stewart guest star in the BBC comedy "Extras". He's in the season finale of season 1, and does this HILARIOUS scene where he does the dialog from the "I've seen everything" fake audio interview from a few years back. The one where he talks about making people's clothes falling off... Yeah you know the one ;) Now imagine him actually saying the dialog in a TV show - pure gold!




Here's to 2010 continuing your amazing success, everybody!Thank you... for just being awesome. :thumbsup2:

I'm very much looking forward to 2010. In 2009, TrekCore continued to provide high quality Star Trek multimedia and gaming info to the internet community. In 2010, I hope TrekCore will be the "Go To" website for Star Trek fans worldwide.

Maybe Paramount will start funneling money to us and dub us the new startrek.com. :PHey, we provide more than they ever did. I can safely say that I'll be here for the next decade and the one after, and after that, and after that, and after that.... :thumbsup2:
