It took a lot of effort from all of the Traks authors to help me put this thing together. I started the encyclopedia project with one goal in mind: to chronical the information of Star Traks into one complete online reference source and to keep it current with Traks.
It has been a long, grueling experience writing all these articles, and undoubtably more grueling for those such as Anthony Butler, who's Vexed Generation series was probably the most difficult to put into relatively short and concise entries. So I would first like to thank all of the Traks authors, Alan Decker, Anthony Butler and Maija Meneks, who all sportingly went along with me on this idea. And if they can help me keep this current, I would be even more thankful (hint to Alan, Anthony and Maija).
I would also like to quickly thank whoever developed the software tools I used to create the encyclopedia. I would like to thank Microsoft for creating Microsoft Word 98, who's html encoding enabled me to convert the encyclopedia quickly into html. I would also like to thank the engineers at Adobe for creating Adobe Photoshop, which enabled me to create many of the appendices of the encyclopedia. Had I not had any of these two resources, I'd probably be patching together graphics in a cheap shareware program while adding "p" tags in between every encyclopedia entry. Thank you all!
