Searching for ST sound effect WAV files for another thread, I came across this pretty fun little fan site; http://frogstar.com/trek/index.asp.  It doesn't boast the best design I've ever seen, but it's got quite a few things archived that I've never seen or heard. It's got the following songs archived and, although I had heard the Shatner renditions, they're always worth a repeat listen:

Leonard Nimoy - Bilbo Baggins (MP3) Clicking on this link will download a temp file in order to play this song.

Leonard Nimoy - Highly Illogical (MP3) Clicking on this link will download a temp file in order to play this song.

William Shatner - Mr Tambourine Man (MP3) Clicking on this link will download a temp file in order to play this song.

William Shatner - Lucy & The Sky with Diamonds (MP3) Clicking on this link will download a temp file in order to play this song.

The site also has an archived episode of THE WEAKEST LINK with cast members from all iterations save ENTERPRISE, which hadn't premiered yet, including: William Shatner, Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton, Denise Crosby, Armin Shimerman, Robert Picardo, Roxann Dawson and John de Lancie.  It also has the FUTURAMA ST show, Shatner Mp3's, as well as WAV sound effects and sound bite files.  Enjoy!

What Trek fan sites can you guys recommend?

TrekToday/TrekBBS.com is pretty much the gold standard, as far as I'm concerned.  There's also James Dixon's Star Trek Fandom Chronology.  James is a...shall we say...interesting individual, but I consider this an essential Trek reference.  Curt Danhauser has a number of interesting and nostalgic Trek-related websites up at danhausertrek.com ('though you'll have to scroll down the page a bit to get buttons for all of them).  There's also Stardate 7600, which sadly looks like it'll never be updated ever, but is well worth visiting.

Among my favorites --

Ex Astris Scientia --
Despite a strong 24th Century bias, they try to stick to canon material
(their own fannish stuff is clearly marked); excellent research site

Guardian of Forever --
Great source for screen captures of spaceships that have appeared in all
the series, including the animated series. Wonderful resource for 3D
modelers.

Neutral Zone Star Ship Database -- Another resource for ships, usually sticks to
canon information concerning ship data, and marks those ships that are
non-canon (usually credits information sources, too, like the mention of
the FASA roleplaying game's Orion ship designs showing up on TNG
computer screen readouts).

Memory Alpha --
The wiki encyclopedia that tries to stick to only canon material, and
allows readers to edit the entries. Good stuff.

I use all of these on a regular basis as reference for the TOS-era Star trek
mod I'm making for the shareware game Escape Velocity Nova from
Ambrosia Software. As I've said before, once I have some better
screenshots available, I'll give you guys an idea of what I'm working on,
but for now you can check these out:

A Miranda class ship investigates the husk of the Doomsday Machine
A Constitution class refit visits Deep Space Station K-7 - Note that there are two shuttlecraft and a scoutship from the
animated series in the hangar
Oh no! Giant space amoeba!
One of Franz Joseph's Hermes class Scouts visits Melkotia

Ex Astris Scientia is awesome, and I look at TrekWeb and Memory Alpha quite a bit.

All the starship-reference sites John mentioned are fun.  Another one I like is Gilso's Star Trek Schematics:

Someone should sticky this thread so that it doesn't get lost on the board!

Thanks for the reference guide sites, guys. Keep 'em coming!!!

I'm also interested in sites where the theme is the show, not necessarily the universe it inhabits.  Know what I mean?  Like the link I supplied with Shatner songs, a Trek cast themed edition of a game show, sound effects, the Trek Futurama episode and Shatner on SNL.  Does anyone have links to those kinds of sites? Interviews with Roddenberry, casts, scanned newspaper articles, etc. would be a ton of fun to listen to and read.

Mike, I think you're right!  This is the Trek board's first sticky thread!

Here's one, Matt:

Gene Roddenberry's Original Star Trek Pitch -- this contains a pdf file
of a photostat of the original Star Trek pitch -- not the one that appeared
in The Making of Star Trekm, but, rather, the one he originally
shopped to network executives. The differences are really interesting, as
are the plot summaries.

A good friend of mine runs this site.  Star Trek: Hypertext

http://www.st-hypertext.com/

He's one of Star Trek's harshest critic but like Fox news Jammer is fair and balanced.

I don't know if anyone else has posted this yet, and technically, it could go in
the man thread as well, but here it is, the women of TOS:

I've been reading Jammer's reviews for many years, since he was reviewing DS9. I find his new Battlestar Galactica reviews to be spot-on, though I like the Tom Zarek episodes a little more than he does. What a great show! When does Season 2 premiere again?

 Somewhat off topic but I did not want to start a new one.  Does anyone know what happened to the Star Trek Communicator magazine? I have not seen one in months.

Online Starbase is a really fun site, you earn Starfleet ranks and they take it seriously, you have required time in grade and it's run quite professionaly. If your really into Trek check it out.

Doug Drexler, CGI SFX Guru, regularily posts Star Trek eye-candy on his blog (Quite a few Trek alumi, like Rick Sternbach, drop by as well):

I believe I've found my new desktop image:

Adam "Darth Mojo" Lebowitz, like Doug Drexler, is also a CGI SFX artist who posts Trek related art (as well as BSG, Star Wars, etc.)
