The site itself is being reworked by the net design team at Funny Garbage out of New York City...a little worried because the samples you can see of their work show a lot of BIG and WOW kind of sites, IMHO what you don't need for startrek.com. Many people felt the site as it is should have been repaired/reworked/updated...maybe they did keep it on a lower key. We'll know fairly soon.
It's likely the new boards will be in the Prospero format like many other CBS boards...not my favorite. I've even gotten to like these vBulletin boards better than Prospero.
