Web Page building ala ST: Computer Interface

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to do a WEB PAGE that looks and functions like the Computers on the Enterprise E?

MS Paint, Irfanview, Notepad... My website ca. 2003

If you're not doing flash, it can be pretty easy. Nowadays I'd use AJAX rather than iframes though.

Mr. B, just shifting through your site: I don't think text/xhtml is a valid MIME type. Although the server seems to be serving it as text/html anyway.

You can do such site very easily with Flash.

Re: Web Page building ala ST: Computer Interface

Alas, your site suffers from a bad case of "mystery meat" navigation, and it's not particularly accessible. I mean, just to scroll up and down I have to use the buttons. No scroll bar, no mouse wheel. I suppose it's ok to have such an all Flash site for personal purposes, but not suitable for the general WWW audience.

Thanks for the heads up, apparently text/xhtml wasn't removed from the specification as my page was still validating.

Well, it is a site that mimics the LCARS system seen in the shows as close as possible. That was the idea behind it, and your original question. There are no mouse wheels on the Enterprise E.

If you're making it a standard navigation site with LCARS graphics, that's fine, but what's the point? You'll just board an already crowded ship, and you'll never top the ones that alredy exist. Therefore, why not just make a site with non-Trek design, like for instance this?
