Star Trek NutWelcome, .
Living so long in an unpopular arm of the galaxy (ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha) and to make matters worse, without digital television in an age when sci-fi was becoming really popular again, I pounced on every episode of any kind of sci fi I could find and devoured it completely. The result left me addicted to sci-fi trivia, so much that at university I was banned for life from the sci fi quizes for always winning. As a consequence I was the perfect candidate for the role of quiz master, writing and presenting the annual sci-fi quiz. In the spirit of competition (we wanted to win) I was allowed back on the team for the inter-university sci-fi quiz.

If you're waiting for me to reply to a posting, don't worry. I usually have a few entries on the go at a time.
Got a question? Check out my FAQ page.
Current Main projects
I'm currently starting a community project called Star Trek - The Project. There isn't much on Star Trek in H2G2, so I thought I'd add one. It is based losely on the principles of The Cathederal of Terry Pratchett.
I've also added a few resources for prospective contributors to take advantage of. Check out the main page for more details.
Current Sub projects
Nothing at the moment but I am now more active in The Cathedral of Terry Pratchett.
Last Main project
My Computers in Science Fiction project is finally complete! Phew, what a rollercoaster. It includes the entries on: TV, Movies, Books, Contemporary movies, androids, robots and cyborgs. Each has it's own entry. It took ages. It's not a definitive guide to the computers, just an exploration of their evolution.
My guide to Temporal Mechanics is finally in the EG! Queue much celebration and asprin (you'll understand when you read it!).
