About Infinite Frontiers
Infinite Frontiers was started as a small sci-fi group producing paper fanzines several years ago, by Simon Plumbe. Currently in existance as a non-profit making organisation, co-ordinated by Simon Plumbe and Colin Gunn, Infinite Froniters exists to entertain and educate.
1991 saw the launch of our first major sucess, The Final Frontier. This Star Trek fanzine was a little different to most in that it was on Amiga floppy disk. The mag featured not only text, but artwork from Tobias Richter and eventually from Mark Platts & Gary Moffat plus music from the likes of Bjorn Lynne and Allister Brimble. Infinite Frontiers other Amiga based releases included the Holodeck series of Star Trek slideshows (including the worlds first high density 1.76Mb Amiga disk slideshow) , the Illusions series of sci-fi & fantasy slideshows, and CD World.
More recently, while we carry on developing the floppy based work we have branched back out into paper-based 'zine publishing. Current releases include, The Final Frontier Phase 2 (Star Trek), Visions (general sci-fi & fantasy), The Continuing Voyages (Star Trek fiction), and The Cybertronian Times (Transformers). Several other titles are in development.
The Amiga has gone hand in hand with Infinite Frontiers providing us with the tools we have needed to create our productions. The Amiga is absolutely vital to our paper publications (we use both Wordworth and Final Writer for layout plus ProText, DPaint V, Personal Paint 7.1 and other packages). The Amiga also played a very important part in the convention for fans of Star Trek we held in Birmingham, England during August of 1996.
Amiga Energy is a way we hope to give something back. We have plans for Amiga Energy and hope it will compliment the two current UK produced Amiga magazines, and, we hope, come some way to fill the gaps left by the cancellation of the Amiga magazines we have lost in the last couple of years. As part of our thankyou, instead of just 1 disk on the coverdisk version of the magazine (which will be the normal situation), issue 1 will have covermounted our licenseware 2 disk release, Holodeck 10.
Thank you for your attention,
