You can ask me everything you want to know about the Startrek series. I don`t know a lot about The Original Series, but if you have a question about TOS you can always try me. I`m a huge Startrek fan for over 12 years. I have a large collection of Startrek books (my hobby is collecting books about Startrek), so I have a lot of resources to use.

Past/Present Clients

I have answerd questions about Startrek on the forum at I've also seen almost every Startrek episode.

What do you like about this subject?

The thing I like most are the technical issues.
