Chief Groves and I have been working on retooling the Blackstar's specs, and we've got it done. Click on the spec link on the left to take a look at the improvements.

In other changes, I've polished the way news updates are handled. The main page will only contain the three previous news updates. Anything prior to that will be put on the news archive page, which is now divided by year.

I have finally overcome one of the greatest challenges in building this website. The Join the IKV Blackstar page is finally working! Anyone interested in joining can now join online. Qapla'!

Finally, the move to the new host is completed. We decided to leave Tripod due to dissatisfaction over their ad situation. I'm afraid that the ads are unavoidable, but hopefully, we can make them as unobtrusive as possible. Among the changes we've made in the move, we've decided to drop our forums. Nobody was really using them anyway.

We also have a new recruit. His name is John Groves, and he is our new Chief Engineer at the rank of Chief Petty Officer. Welcome aboard, chief.

Once again, we go a very long time with no update... go figure.

I have stepped down as the Commanding Officer of this ship. I feel that I have not fulfilled my responsibility to the Blackstar and it's crew. Commander Mara has taken over command, and I am now the Executive Officer. Let's wish our new Captain the best of luck as she takes on her new duties.

I also have a promotiont to announce. Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jackie Thacker, has completed her uniform and has been promoted to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. Kai Dr. Thacker!

Since the last update, the IKV Blackstar has joined the Intergalactic Tactical Force, which is a local organization dedicated to sci-fi. As soon as their website is up (I'm working on that one, too...) I'll put up a link to it. The site itself has not changed much, just polished up here and there.
