Welcome to my User page. Between 1 May 2005 and 14 July 2011, I was an administrator on this wiki. I am still active on Memory Alpha but have been stripped of my admin capabilities and responsibilities due to a misunderstood joke, once. I definitely still enjoy making edits to the site, though, and do my best to keep up-to-date with the site's policies and guidelines.

If you like/dislike my contributions, or have any issues you'd like to bring to my attention, etc., feel free to leave a message on my Talk page. Also, all my contributions can be found here.

I'm the founder of The X-Files Wiki. If you're a fan of both the Star Trek universe and the X-Files Universe (including The Lone Gunmen and Millennium), just drop on by and help to build the site.

I also created one of the internet's most complete archives of log entries - Star Trek: Captain's Logs.

Much of my work on Memory Alpha has been on episode articles and my use of Teaser/Acts sections revolutionized episode summaries on this site. Although some users argued that the method of using Teaser and Acts sections is not an improvement, a lot of the episode summaries found on MA use the method and the first use can be seen here. I also made a systematic effort to upgrade the background info on the episode articles for both Voyager (unfortunately, I only got to Season 5) and TAS. I've recently been concentrating on the non-episode bg info parts of this site, particularly for recurring aspects.

Favourite ProductionsEdit

Some of my all-time favorite Star Trek productions are TNG: "The Defector" (the first Trek I ever saw; I was hooked from that moment on!) and the series of original Star Trek films (which I pretty much grew up watching). There's no Trek series or movie which I don't like, though it took me a long time to start finding DS9 enjoyable and the relatively outdated original series is now probably my least favourite (though it was certainly good for its time and still has some great stories).

For years before trying to upgrade the Voyager episode pages, I hadn't much liked Voyager as a series, finding Neelix a bit annoying and the Borg to have been severely over-used in the later seasons of the show. Even as I began the work on the Voyager episode articles, I still felt the same way about the later seasons. As I researched the episodes and worked on the articles about them, however, I developed more of an appreciation for the entire series from a production perspective.


I thought it might be interesting/useful for myself and others to be able to see, at a glance (sort of) which Star Trek scripts I have access to, any of which can be consulted on request. A huge thanks firstly to all the amazing writers on the multiple Star Trek series. Many thanks also to the Star Trek insiders who have helped me collect these scripts, especially Larry Nemecek (whose website is here) and Suzie Raney (whose website is here). They're both great sources of insider content, including much more than scripts. A listing of the scripts I have access to follow (unless otherwise stated, each script is from my personal collection and is a final draft script):
