Welcome to my User page. Between 1 May 2005 and 14 July 2011, I was an administrator on this wiki. I am still active on Memory Alpha but have been stripped of my admin privileges and responsibilities due to a misunderstood joke, once. I still enjoy making edits to the site, though, and do my best to keep up-to-date with the site's policies and guidelines.
Much of my work on Memory Alpha has been on episode articles and my use of Teaser/Acts sections revolutionized episode summaries on this site. Although some users argued that the method of using Teaser and Acts sections is not an improvement, a lot of the episode summaries found on MA use the method and the first use can be seen here. I also made a systematic effort to upgrade the background info on the episode articles for both Voyager (unfortunately, I only got to Season 5) and TAS. I've recently been concentrating on the non-episode bg info parts of this site, particularly for recurring aspects.
Some of my all-time favorite Star Trek productions are TNG: "The Defector" (the first Trek I ever saw; I was hooked from that moment on!) and the series of original Star Trek films (which I pretty much grew up watching). There's no Trek series or movie which I don't like, though it took me a long time to start finding DS9 enjoyable and the relatively outdated original series is now probably my least favourite (though it was good for its time and still has some great stories).
For years before trying to upgrade the Voyager episode pages, I hadn't much liked Voyager as a series, finding Neelix a bit annoying and the Borg to have been severely over-used in the later seasons of the show. Even as I began the work on the Voyager episode articles, I still felt the same way about the later seasons. As I researched the episodes and worked on the articles about them, however, I developed more of an appreciation for the entire series from a production perspective.
