Hello World!

The Trek Nation is going away.

But we'll be back! As explained here, our server is moving locations. We should be back in about 30 hours.

So what on earth are you going to do with yourself while the Trek Nation sites are down? Well, with lots of help from Zeke I've compiled this helpful list. Feel free to save it to your hard drive to sustain you through the drought.


30. Volunteer at the pound and give the dogs Romulan Ale

29. Paraphrase everything you say with 'Captain, I sense hostile intentions...'

28. Flirt shamelessly with your first officer

27. Read all the Trek novels at one sitting, then call Guinness and claim a world-record

26. Write an essay about why Captain Janeway/Picard/Kirk/Archer/Sisko/Sheridan/Scarlet is the best

25. Burn an effigy of the Borg Queen

24. Contemplate what Christian, Lisa and Caillan are up to

23. Wonder what all your friends from Trek BBS are up to

22. Cry

21. Learn to swear in Klingon

20. Work out your date of birth in Stardate format

19. Create your own top ten list

18. Count the minutes until the sites come back

17. Count the minutes until 'Nemesis' comes out

16. Attempt to contact your ancestors by chanting whilst moving a walnut shell with your fingers

15. Sleep. In a bed - not with your face on your keyboard.

14. Cite the Prime Directive as a reason not to clean your place up ("I can't disturb the natural order of things....")

13. The Hamster Dance

12. Bring in a dog to check your home for Suliban

11. Look for occurrences of the number 47 in the news, seeing them as omens that the Trek future is coming

10. Paint your monitor and watch it dry.

9. Try to get all the fluff out of your keyboard and mouse

8. Get new keyboard and mouse after spectacular failure of #9

7. Travel a few seconds through time to spite the Vulcan Science Directorate

6. Start your own news site, 'TerkToday,' and see how many people you can get to go there by mistake

5. Watch the 'Nemesis' trailer some more

4. Order a pizza and two garlic rolls and make your own personal NX-01

3. See if it's possible to reach warp speed by drinking enough cups of coffee

2. Using a couple of internet sites as reference, attempt to mess up the Star Trek time line by building a warp-capable craft before Zephram Cochrane this afternoon

1. Take your Vulcan cynicism and bury it
