STAR TREK: UNITY : PROJECT TV...
Press Release from TREKZONE.org
For Immediate Release...
Access 31's Program Committee has just sent TREKZONE.org an email regarding our application for possible broadcast on Access 31 - Community television here in Western Australia.
Firstly, we must stress that TREKZONE.org or its staff are NOT in direct control of Unity, we are but a meager part of a grander scheme. We came on board about 2 months after Star Trek: Unity was conceived, and it has been misconstrewed that it is "our" endeavour. TREKZONE.org is contributing through broadcast access, editing and casting managment.
With that said, welcome to this exclusive news article!
We have just received an email from Access 31's program co-ordinator who has informed us that we have a green light to proceed to the next stage of program proposal. This means that the station is interested in our pilot episode and that once it is completed, they will review us further.
Further information regarding their decision could be the interest in a sci-fi night, in which Unity could take an anchoring part.
We are still awaiting Paramount Pictures International's Vice President's response to our request of their stance on this new situation. As various contributors have said, Paramount will not allow broadcasting of fan fic's. However, we are hoping that they will see 31 as what it is, free-to-air and not-for-profit.
MORE DETAILS AS THEY BREAK, but this is definatley good news.
Video Promo Released, Seems Re-Release Inevitable
We've just spent the last few hours creating a video promo detailing our bold vision for the future. Also in the promo is a date for our return. It seems that we can't stay away too long.
Welcome to TREKZONE.org, we are Australia's only Star Trek resource site, however our main computer server crashed in January 2005, we did not publicly announce this because we felt our tape back ups would cover us, thus the "coming up" promo images always displayed on our home page.
However, it became clear that our backups were too old, and to re-build would take time and effort. We did not feel that we had the time - because all of our staff work on TREKZONE voluntarily and, short of mind control and whips, we could not keep them here.
TREKZONE.org was faced with closure, however our curator has decided to resurrect the site, with events coming up soon that will hopefully bring more visitors, we are going to re-create what TREKZONE.org was for a very short time.
Expanded on from the promo are these facts - in 2003 and 2004 combined, 501, 173 different Australian IPs visited TREKZONE.org, 4 123 634 (4.1 million) visitors from across the globe came to our part of the net. Among the biggest countries were (in ourder of visits): America, Australia, Germany and the UK. Most people had Windows XP running MS IE 6.0. Average time spent on our site was 6.5 minutes with the biggest referers (again, in order):
TREKZONE.org's own direct refers for pages.

Details on New Series of Star Trek: Poseidon
TREKZONE.org's first run, original fan fiction series - Star Trek: Poseidon - suffered at the hands of the lacking previous ownership. Now, it's been revitilised and a new spark has emerged in the monkey cage. The first details are out...
Captain Art Flemming, commanding officer of the U.S.S. London for 10 years, commands the most successful "escort vessel" in Starfleet. No other Defiant-class vessel has been in more battles and come out unscathed than the London, Captain Flemming runs a tight ship though, but with a crew that respects and looks up to him there is rarely any need for law and order. Klingon Chancellor Mar'tok once called him "the iron warrior" after he helped sway the tide against the Dominion in the last battle of the Dominion War, his methods are proven, his tactics sound...
...but, beneath the man everyone loves lies a secret, a secret so destructive he would kill to protect it. Commander Michelle Perry, first officer of 7 years, is romanticly involved with the Captain, and now Ms. Perry is pregnant. Not willing to face a court martial and unable to stop the affair, Art must smuggle the first officer off the ship to the isolated and unaffiliated world of Methos IV.
This is where the trouble begins. The U.S.S. London receives her first orders since the Dominion War, and after a lenghty overhaul at McKinley Station. Reports indicate a terrible act of genocide has occured on Methos IV and now Captain Flemming amd his crew must investage whilst hiding his true resolve for this mission. Hope remains for his beloved, however ransom demands force the love into open air, causing the London to be recalled, and the Defiant to take it's place.
However, Art isn't going to give up without a fight, and he resigns his commission and steals a shuttlecraft...
....and this is where the adventures begin...
Star Trek: Poseidon, premieres October 2005.
