Author has written 34 stories for CSI, M*A*S*H, Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica: 2003, StarTrek: Voyager, Star Trek: Picard, and StarTrek: The Next Generation.

one of my favorite moments in Star Trek is when Captain Kirk looks out over the vast cosmos and says, "the three most beautiful words in any language are-", and of course your heart sinks because you think it's going to be 'I love you' or something. and he says, "please help me." what a fantastic idea, that vulnerability and need is a beautiful thing.
