Initially my project was to keep track of THE OFFICIAL STAR TREK FACT FILES card number by part number to check where the gaps were occurring. At part number 192, which was originally scheduled to be the last part, five cards were missing. These were 5.29, 31.10, 42.8, 59,16 and 66.1C. These were issued with part 213. Subsequently I decided to cross-reference the Fact Files to THE STAR TREK ENCYCLOPEDIA. This has been done to the third edition, dated 1999 for all 304 parts. If there is another edition I will check and update the entries for "Once More unto the Breach" [DS9] and "Timeless" [VGR] onwards. I hope there is a fourth edition; this magnum opus deserves to be completed to cover the 23rd and 24th centuries of Star Trek. However Michael Okuda in an interview with STAR TREK Monthly number 99 is quoted as saying "The 'Star Trek Encyclopedia' was actually an outgrowth of 'The Star Trek Chronology'... We thought 'Okay, we'll do it.' not realising of course that as soon as you finish doing one, people would say, "Well, where's the update?" We can only hope! Maybe someday somebody will then pick up the torch for 'Enterprise' and the 22nd (and 31st) centuries. In 2016 it was announced that the Okudas had picked up the torch to include up to Star Trek (2009). Unfortunately it does not include The Animated Series, SEE: The Animated Series Encyclopedia, and "It's Only a Paper Moon." [DS9] episode summary is missing.
