That is so fake! I believe James himself was behind that one. I think he was trying to make fun of the staff and membership of the www.trekbbs.com website. James is alive and well and makes regular contributions to a website run by a famous Star Trek Author.
It appears the memorial is for our benefit. I wonder who the "famous Trek author" is?

I dunno, but that whole thread screams fake to me. The names of the posters and the whole idolization of James Dixon makes me think that every poster in that thread is a Dixon dual.

I liked his timeline, and he put a lot of effort into it, but he also ranted quite a bit. Okuda's timeline was pretty mealy-mouthed about not wanting to nail down things, so writers could do whatever they wanted. Dixon had no trouble speaking his mind on such things and trying to set tech fandom in permacrete.

I wonder when edition 18 will come out, and how he'll try ti disguise it. Since "Christopher T" was 'trying to edit his timeline', I'm guessing he'll release it under that name. The hardest part will be for him to make the additions seem like somebody else writing them.
