Abstract: \starcat, the Space Telescope ARchive and CATalogue user interface, has been around for a number of years already. During this time it has been enhanced and augmented in a number of different areas. This paper is about a new capability allowing geographically distributed \starcat\ interfaces to connect to geographically distributed data servers. Moving towards a window-based \starcat\ is another goal being pursued: a graphic/image server, a help/doc server and a cross-correlation tool are currently being added to it. They should further enhance the functionality, ease of use and access transparency.
