OuroborosCobra is 22 years old, and has been a Trek fan that entire time. This was helped by encouragement from his parents, both of whom were fans and watched starting with The Original Series. From the age of three years old he was known to play with my food by making "phasers" out of bread, or pretending that when driving through tunnels he was traveling through a wormhole.
OuroborosCobra is just as much of a fan today as he was then, if not more. He is especially interested in technology of Star Trek. He have often spent hours thinking about warp drive and other things. He loves learning about all of the classes of ships seen.
If you want to contact me, you can often find me on the MA IRC channel, where I am usually signed on as OuroborosCobra, or Cobra|"something" (like Cobra|Editing, or Cobra|Sleeping). If I'm not around, or if I don't respond, leave a note for me on my User talk page.
I really like the Klingons. For information on this, and other opinions and conjecture of mine on Star Trek, see my subpage. It is still under construction, so be warned. Also, no Ferengi allowed (except for Quark).
On Wikipedia he is also known as OuroborosCobra, although he has not made many contributions there yet.

Stuff On My Radar
Occasionally, I will run into an article where I think something is wrong, but I am not entirely sure, and I have no way on my own to confirm it. Examples of these are background notes for episodes where people say something is based off of Monty Python, but then do not give a reference, or an attribute being given to a species, etc. Rather than immediately remove the error myself, I put a question into the talk page, and wait a few days. If no one responds with further evidence, or no one simply fixes the error themselves, then I will eventually take action. Once I have made a fix, I will leave the item here (marked fixed) for a few days, until the fix is either accepted, or a better one comes along. Here is what is currently on my radar:
Images I Have Contributed
Where My Name Comes From
My name is actually two parts, Ouroboros and Cobra:
I am a college student working towards a chemistry major. I love chemistry. I love learning about the world around me, and how it works. I love working in a lab. I love research, discovery. I love... etc. What does Ouroboros have to do with this? Ouroboros a symbol for infinite, a snake biting its own tail. In chemistry, it is known for its role in the story of the discovery of the structure of benzene, one of the most important structures in organic chemistry. It is said that Friedrich August Kekulé von Stradonitz, a 19th century chemist, went to sleep one night while working on determining the structure for benzene. That night, he had a dream with snakes biting their own tails, Ouroboros. He woke up, and realized that was the answer.
I wanted something related to chemistry that also sounded cool. Ouroboros was it.
Cobra is from the other half of my life. Since I was 12 years old, I have been a member of something called Civil Air Patrol, the Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. I joined as a cadet, and have achieved a great deal. Maybe I will go into more details into my achievements in a future edit. Back when I first joined, when I was a Cadet Basic in rank, I was part of a Basic Flight (flight is a small organizational group). My flight was about 13 cadets. A few weeks into our basic training, we were given the opportunity to name our flight. We decided on the name "Cobra." Since then, that has been a special name for me. Eight and a half years on, and I am the only one left from that flight. I am the last of Cobra.
