Fast Facts

  • Became a huge fan of Star Trek as a kid during the 1970s; he watched the reruns, read its novelizations and even built an Enterprise model.
  • Watched the original Battlestar Galactica as a kid; later, he masterminded its successful remake.
  • Played quarterback on his high-school football team. 
  • Received a Navy ROTC scholarship to Cornell University, but dropped out during his senior year.
  • Sold his first script to Star Trek: Next Generation by slipping it to an assistant of Gene Roddenberry's during a tour of the set. The assistant read it, liked it and recommended it to an agent, who in turn submitted it through the proper channels---only to have it ignored. Seven months later, an executive producer read it, liked it and bought it.
  • Sold a second script to Next Generation, then joined the show's writing staff on a week-to-week contract. A few months later, he was given an actual contract and made story editor.
