(written from a Production point of view)
Anne Wokanovicz is a Star Trek fan and writer.
She met Ken Penders at a WishCon convention and they got into a discussion about writing in Star Trek. At the time, Penders was trying to write a Klingon story for Alan Gold at DC Comics, and he and Wokanovicz collaborated on the story, with him writing the plot, and her working in the dialogue. The story became "A True Son of Kahless" in the first TNG special.
