He is now a writer, a executive story editor and co-producer on Ronald D. Moore's Battlestar Galactica. He also wrote the Star Trek: Section 31 DS9 novel Abyss.
Weddle is a great fan of legendary director Sam Peckinpah. He was a friend of the Peckinpah family and met the famous director many times. He later wrote the biography If They Move . . .

Ira Steven Behr, a great fan of Peckinpah, read the book and arranged to meet Weddle, securing him a place on the writing staff.
