B vs DEdit

Look here. It's Ronald B. Moore, not Ronald D. Moore. It's him in the photo. Weyoun 07:45, 15 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I Knew there was something wrong with that article, namely that Ronald B. Moore was said to do Special effects. But THIS article is about Ronald D. Moore [1] the exc producer / writer of several trek series. --TOSrules 20:30, 15 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, as I said, Ron B. was the visual effects co-ordinator on Enterprise and has worked his way up since TNG. As the StarTrek.com article says, he has won five Emmys during his time on Star Trek (which is five more than Ron D.), so I think it's a bit sad that very few people seem to know who he is.

When D. Moore was added back in it noted that he wrote the episode Pegasus that it was suppose to be a nod to him. So I think it is more likely a nod to the Writer of that episode not the effects artist. Heck it could be a nod to both of them, Although I think it is a nod towards D not B. --TOSrules 08:35, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)
As it's Ron B. in the photo, however, I think the current revision of the article should be kept. Now all we've got to do is clean up the issue surrounding the various Ron Moore's who are high ranking officers in Starfleet - at least according to the various dedication plaques. :-) Weyoun 11:52, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Not much clean-up needed:
  • Ronald B. Moore (Captain) was obviously named for Ronald B. Moore, and was featured on various plaques after 2357 when Cmdr Moore died -- always with his middle initial
  • Ronald D. Moore (Vice Admiral) was obviously named for Ronald D. Moore, and was featured on various plaques after 2357 when Cmdr Moore died -- usually with his middle initial.
  • Ronald Moore (Commander) was played, in photo, by Ronald B. Moore in an episode written as a homage to an episode written by Ronald D. Moore. Any of the Ron D. Moore or Ron B. Moore references in signage or dedication plaques before his 2357 death were marked with ranks higher than commander, so it probably couldn't be him -- except we wouldnt know which were trying to refer to him since we don't know his middle initial.
I think i've figured most of it out, and i'm still chugging away at completing the ;lits and linking the references to dedication plaques. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 12:12, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)
