I've just discovered two minor production contributors who appear to have worked on Star Trek but do not have articles here, probably because they were uncredited. Specifically, Eric Alba [1], who contributed to TNG, DS9, Generations and Voyager as a visual effects associate (see his resumé here), apparently working at the time under the name Frederick G. Alba; and Susan Boyd, who is credited on IMDb as having worked as a hairstylist on three episodes of TNG. I know that IMDb isn't the most reliable source; for Alba, I've got his own resumé as an additional source, but I don't have another source for Boyd.

Would it be appropriate to add articles for these two, or just for Alba? Alba has incoming links from VOY Season 1 and Memory Alpha:List of unwritten production staff articles, but Boyd is linked only from Steve LaPorte. I wasn't sure whether this was a case for "be bold" or not, so I thought I'd ask. —Josiah Rowe 07:42, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

My opinion is feel free to start the articles- as long as you have something to cite I don't see why we can't have the article to look at and evaluate the merits of its evidence. I think we should err on the side of having the information; it can always be removed later if needed, such as if it turns into another Anthony Genovese. There may be ways to confirm their involvement- I know other users here have contacts who might be able to. --31dot 09:29, July 29, 2011 (UTC)
In this case, I'm of the same opinion; I reckon it's safe enough to go ahead with creating the articles and, indeed, we can always remove them, in the future, if needs be. --Defiant 09:43, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

OK, I've created the page for Alba, based on his resumé and IMDb. I'll make a (shorter) page for Boyd later. —Josiah Rowe 05:04, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

Created a page for Boyd (well, a stub really). —Josiah Rowe 20:09, August 3, 2011 (UTC)
