Three years ago, Christian created a little news site called TrekToday. Its ambition was to become the first news site with daily updates. The site only had 19 visitors on the first day, 28 on the second, then grew to 77 on the third and 205 on the fourth.
The emphasis here is on you - the readers, because it is you who keeps this site going, through visiting, through your feedback and through your participation, because that helps us strive to continually give you the best site we can. So thank-you.
I'd also like to take a moment to thank Christian, who created the site, works arduously behind the scenes to make sure everything doesn't collapse, and is constantly dreaming up ways to make it bigger and better. None of us would have had the opportunity to be able to come here every day for the last three years if it wasn't for his vision and determination. TrekToday has come a long way since that day three years ago.
So, thank-you everyone for stopping by, and here's to another three years!

Trek Two Years Ago
- Berman Talks New Trek
Current 'keeper of the flame' Rick Berman talked briefly about his hopes for Series V:
I feel this next series, which I'm not prepared to talk about just yet, is going to be a crucial step for the survival of Star Trek. I am not saying this in any way to put down Voyager, which I think is going as well as it ever has. But I think that the survival of the franchise could hinge upon it. It has to be something unique and fresh and it can't be a rehashing of one of the previous series.
- 'Andromeda' Shooting Date
Robert Hewitt Wolfe, co-executive producer of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, announced the series would begin filming May 8 for a fall premiere. More information on the series can be found at our sister site SlipstreamWeb.

Happy 3rd birthday to TrekToday!
