Joseph "Joe" B. Bauer (born 29 July 1971; age 44) is a visual effects (VFX) coordinator and supervisor. Starting his motion picture industry career in late 1993, he worked, teamed up as VFX coordinator with David Stipes, on three seasons of the Star Trek television franchise, which included the final season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the first two seasons of Star Trek: Voyager. Bauer was given the opportunity to hone his skills by serving as a VFX supervisor on two episodes, The Next Generation's "Preemptive Strike" and Voyager's "Resolutions" (coincidentally also his last work for the franchise), without ever being permanently elevated into the position. Along with the rest of the VFX team, Bauer won an Emmy Award for Star Trek: Voyager's pilot episode "Caretaker" in 1995. For that episode, Bauer made a noticeable contribution when he built the enlarged forward section of the Kazon Predator-class vessel, that was used for the climatic ramming scene in the last act. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 105, p. 59) Aside from this he has tactical operations officer Joe Bauer named after him.
