Yeah, I mean it's far more convenient and current and up to date. Back in the day, Star Trek Encyclopedia was the thing to look at, but ever since it's last update in 1999, pretty much anything other than DS9 is old.

So, yeah pretty much DS9 is the only thing that is up to date. So, I just mainly use the encyclopedia as a quick reference guide. But Memory Alpha is the place I always go to.
