  1. Thanks for moving it around. I'm quite new to this forum, so I didn't know where to post it and thought I'd put it into the Holodeck so that it couldn't be misunderstood as spamming into a theme forum. Believe it or not, I didn't notice the connection to the derivative when I chose the nickname. It was only when peole pointed it out that it hit me.
  2. Hey there, I'm looking for feedback on my current project, http://eutreka.com/, a blog that goes through Star Trek (currently Enterprise) episode by episode. Approach What I'm trying to do is going through the episodes at great detail (thus only one a week) and trying to view it from multiple angles. There are many people already who have endeavoured to determine which episodes are good, and which are bad, and when it comes to entertaining people I certainly can't compete with giants like Mission Log or Trekspertise. So I won't try that. Instead, I'll try to point out details and development in the way that only writing allows. So far, that has resulted in two pieces: Looking at how the first ten minutes of Enterprise subtly establish it as Star Trek Looking at the initial characterization of Hoshi, Reed, Phlox and Travis I think those give a good idea at what I'm attempting. While I can hardly endeavour to always generate completely original observations after decades of Star Trek, it's the presentation of different aspects in a coherent fashion that I think a blog is quite suitable for. All feeedback is appreciated
  3. Hey guys, over the past couple of days I've deveoped a search tool to help you search through chakoteya.net's transcripts of the Star Trek shows. Check it out at http://scriptsearch.dxdy.name Why is this better than using a normal search engine? Only the results that precisely match what you’re looking for are displayed. The full line plus its immediate context is displayed, saving you the trouble of having to go on each and every page to find out how a sentence ends. Instead, you can simply have a look at the results and then decide to go to the relevant transcripts for further context. The results are displayed in the same order their episodes aired. That way, you won’t have to manually re-order them if you’re interested in how a character’s views developed over time. You can restrict your search to specific shows or episodes. So far, I've used it to research how a certain subject is portrayed, or how a character's view on a subject evolved over time. The ability to separate results by author also allows for a convenient analysis on how two character's takes on the same philosophy might differ. Also, it's handy to simply find long-forgotten scenes like that scene where Vash, Picard and Q were discussing in the ready room. Giving the tool that information will quickly point you to the scene in question. If you've got any suggestions for improvement, be sure to let me know.

    No clue whether this thread is still current or not, but I am a new member and I can't create new topics so I assume it is. So there's comment #1.
