ABOUT AUSXIP STAR TREK PICARD FAN SITE
WHAT IS “AUSXIP”?
The original AUSXIP (Australian Xena Information Page) was created on 15 December 1996 by MaryD for Australian Xena Warrior Princess. AUSXIP is a non-profit network of sites whose main goal is to promote and support the actors/tv shows we love and hope you do as well!
AUSXIP STAR TREK PICARD FANSITE
Star Trek: The Next Generation was my first love and one always remembers their first love. I read every novel, I watched every episode (repeatedly) and my favourite characters were Captain Jean Luc Picard, Commander Data, Lt Natasha Yar (RIP) and Cousellor Deanna Troi. I loved every minute of it. Star Trek: The Next Generation was joined by Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. TNG & DS9 were a trekkies dream come true. My favourites on DS9 were Major Kira Nerys and Jadzia Dax. I had been writing Star Trek fiction for a long time and with the advent of DS9, I had eleven of my DS9 fanfics printed in various issues of Eridani Fanzine (long before the Fan fiction Archive we know and love today). Along with Star Trek: TNG, DS9 and then Voyager (my favourites was Seven of Nine) it was NIRVANA. Since the end of those shows, my interests lay elsewhere towards Xena (that’s where the X in AUSXIP comes from) until the announcement that Sir Patrick Stewart was coming back to Trek as Jean Luc Picard.
One of the very first sites I created at the dawn of the internet was my Star Trek site and then my Babylon 5 site and then…Xena Warrior Princess. It’s been quite a journey.
I’m back where I began…with a Star Trek site and this time it’s dedicated to Star Trek: Picard. Isn’t life funny sometimes.
