Joe Menosky

Joe Menosky is a writer and producer who started his Star Trek career as Executive Story Editor during the fourth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Beside writing scripts for The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, he also worked as co-producer on TNG and as producer, supervising producer, and co.executive producer on Star Trek: Voyager.

During his time with the franchise, he moved to Europe for three years. There, he wrote and developed television pilots for studio Gaumont in France, while continuing to write scripts for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and then Star Trek: Voyager, on a freelance basis. When he came back to the United States, Menosky joined Star Trek: Voyager in its third season as a writer and producer. Menosky is probably best known as the writer who started inserting the number 47 into his scripts, a tradition carried on by Braga, Ronald D. Moore and others. He is also well known for writing "high-concept" scripts. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion 2nd ed., p. 295)

In addition to Star Trek, Menosky recently sold a feature screenplay co-authored with Brannon Braga to director James Cameron called "Real Time".

Menosky had been a journalist before working in film and television. He used to be science editor and reporter for National Public Radio's All Things Considered and Morning Edition. Articles and essays of his have been re-printed numerous times in The Economist, The Washington Post, and MIT's Technology Review, among others.

He joined the writing staff of The Dead Zone, a science fiction series from Michael Piller starring Nicole de Boer and worked on the series as executive consultant until 2003. He also wrote the stories for three episodes in 2002 and 2003.
