Appropriately ending the running joke of the new design being 'nearly ready' on April Fools Day, I'm happy to announce the new design is now actually being put up for all the sites in the Nation! You can already see the new design in action at the Trek BBS, though the BBS only underwent a few small changes, and the changes will become visible at TrekToday and the Nation over the next few days. Please let me know if you encounter any problems with the new design.
Trek BBS Today
Below are some of the topics currently being discussed at the Trek BBS:
-What exactly do the Akira, Steamrunner and Prometheus-class starships look like?
-Do you think a new Trek series based on a new Federation founded by the Voyager crew would be a good idea?
More topics can be found at the Trek BBS!
