This site is definitely NOT CANON or official in any way. Nobody from within the Star Trek organization has authorized it in any way, or provided me with any information to develop it, or has anything at all to do with it. Although much here is taken directly from canon and official sources, much else is nothing more than speculation based on my own particular interpretation of the Star Trek universe. For details of how to distinguish between canon, official and speculative information, see the 'Ethos' section.
A word on the images used here : at last count this site contained, in all, about four thousand five hundred images. Many of these are supporting graphics - buttons, titles, etc. Of the two thousand or so 'useful' images, the vast majority are scans I have made myself from various episodes. A few are pictures I have downloaded from Binaries groups over the last few years. Since I didn't know I was going to have a web site of my own when I downloaded them, I have never kept any kind of record of who scanned them and posted them. My ultimate aim is to replace all of these images with my own scans, a process which is now largely complete. If anybody recognises an image on this site as one they have provided, they can email me and I will credit them or remove the image.
