Welcome to my User Page. I am long time veteran of Wikipedia on many battle fronts and also a tremendous fan of Star Trek. I am looking forward to helping out with Memory Alpha. -FleetCaptain 11:01, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

World War II

Real world information: I am a military historian with the United States National Archives, specializing in the U.S. armed forces military service records. I hold a BA in History with a World War II emphasis from Virginia Tech. I presently reside in St. Charles, Missouri, married with no children.

USS Enterprise (CVN-65), 1986

The Navy

Military service: I have been a member of the United States Navy since August of 1995 and presently hold the rank of Lieutenant Commander in the United States Naval Reserve. My active duty years were spent on a frigate in Japan and my reserve time has been spent mostly in Korea. I did a one year call-up to the Middle East as part of the War on Terrorism and performed duty off the Hormuz Straights. I presently serve as a reserve officer attached to the headquarters of Naval Personnel Command in Millington, Tennessee.


"General Trelane...retired"

Interest in Star Trek: My first vague memory of Star Trek was in 1982 where I saw what I think must have been part of Star Trek: The Motion Picture on The Movie Channel. I was 6 and half years old at the time. In 1983, I saw the last few scenes of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on HBO but didnt really understand what I was watching. I then remember seeing movie posters advertising the release of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The first Star Trek episode I ever saw in its entirety was "The Squire of Gothos" in 1984. In 1986, my family went and saw Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; that same year I was first exposed to Star Trek: The Animated Series when it briefly ran on Nickelodeon. By 1987 I was watching Star Trek full time to include the season premiere of Star Trek: The Next Generation which I first watched on WDCA Channel 20. I was also present at the opening of the Star Trek Smithsonian Exhibit in 1992.

Since then, I've been an avid fan and followed Star Trek: Voyager and Deep Space Nine through college and continued to watch these shows during my first years in the Navy. I also watched the full run of Star Trek: Enterprise upon moving to Missouri and, since the release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, I've seen every Star Trek movie when it released in the theater. I presently own the DVD season sets of every Star Trek series (including the newly released Animated Series) as well as every Star Trek film.

Patrick Barritt Borg ST8

The Borg

Writing credits: In 1991, at the age of sixteen, I wrote a short story about the Borg which was published in a local magazine out of Omaha. It was called "Borg Origin" and focused on the very early days of the Borg and how they came into existence and expanded out from their homeworld. In my first years of college, I attempted to write a Star Trek novel, but never got it to sell to Pocket Books due to both my own inexperience as a writer and an inability to find a literary agent.

Nazi Kapitan

The SS

The novel dealt with a scientist from the far future who, in an effort to destroy the Federation, pulled all six Enterprises out of time in an effort to disrupt the timeline. An interesting tie-in was that the time warp procedure didnt work for the Enterprise-C, pulling it forward in time only two decades, which explained the apperance in "Yesterday's Enterprise". The novel was also writen prior to Star Trek: First Contact and thus had a completely different Enterprise-E with Commodore Wesley Crusher in command.

Apart from Memory Alpha, I once contributed to an online database of Star Trek articles of which one article can still be found here. Okay, so now you know my real name if you were paying attention!

Outside of Star Trek, professional writing credits include a history journal article entitled "A History and Analysis of the SS" as well as a reference book, also published in a history journal, entitled "From Mann to Reichsführer: A collection of SS service records." I am currently working on a political thriller, set in the 2020s, detailing the War on Terrorism and the effects the prolonged conflict has had on the United States. Submissions to literary agents are in progress. Wish me luck!

The worst Star Trek episodes of all time

  1. "The Lights of Zetar" (An episode about Scotty's crush on his girlfriend...please)
  2. "Business as Usual" (Let's make a pointless episode about the Ferengi...)
  3. "The Way to Eden" (Space Hippies...enough said)
  4. "Tin Man" (An episode about a big space slug...)
  5. "Unnatural Selection" (A group of superkids who make people grow old!)
  6. "Pen Pals" (Data has a "special friend"; Wesley takes on command and puberty)
Note: This user actually thinks "Spock's Brain" is a somewhat decent episode, despite the general feeling by most Star Trek fans that this was the worst episode ever made.
