Forgotten Trek won Ex Astris Scientia‘s prestigious award when it was still part of what was called the Ottens Archive website. Bernd Schneider had the following to say about the site.
I know Ottens’ website almost since its inception. The site’s content and design has frequently been subject to drastic changes, but with a visible progression towards perfect elaboration. Currently the Ottens Archive is composed of a number of historical and political features (out of competition) and a section dedicated to Star Trek. Instead of showing content that is already covered elsewhere in the web, the Ottens Archive focuses on the “Forgotten Trek”, on set and prop design, concept sketches and on the never produced series Star Trek: Phase II. In this field the site presents several facts and pictures that were new to me and that shed light on the production of the show. Summarizing, Ottens receives the EAE Award for his steady effort to create a flawless site, as well as for its unique content. Congratulations!
