I never submitted this site for any awards, so it stunned me to learn that TrekCaps.Net was selected for the June 2012 Ex Astris Excellentia Award! Thank you so much, it’s an honor!
Although Ariane’s Star Trek Gallery had been in existence since the last century already, I only discovered the site some three years ago when I was looking for screen caps from the movie “Star Trek (2009)”. Ariane’s site at Trekcaps.net comes with a wonderful design and presents high-quality screen caps and high-resolution photos from all Star Trek series, plus some fan artwork. On the more technical side, it is not just another fan-made Star Trek image gallery but a professionally organized site that takes advantage of the latest techniques, much like commercial image communities such as Flickr or Deviantart. I would like to thank Ariane for maintaining the site for so long and for always keeping it up to date despite all the technical difficulties and occasional hosting disasters. This EAS Award is particularly well deserved!
