Jamie Bamber
Star Trek vs. the New Battlestar Galactica
Jamie stars as Major Lee "Apollo" Adama on the Sci-Fi Channel television program Battlestar Galactica.
        Jamie St. John Bamber Griffith was born in London to an American father, Ralph, and a Northern Irish mother, Liz.  He spent his early school years in Paris, where his father worked as a management consultant.  His mother had trained and worked as an actress in London before starting a family and moving to France.  Jamie is one of seven siblings, having a younger brother and a younger sister as well as four older half-brothers from his father's first marriage, all of whom were raised as a single family.  It was Jamie's mother who first awakened his love of drama while she ran a children's theater group at the American Cathedral in Paris; his first role was as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz, cast by his mother, who as yet lacked a daughter.
        It was as a child that Jamie did his first paid acting work, dubbing a French film into English while in Paris and then doing the odd TV commercial after moving back to the U.K. at the age of 7.  At St. Paul's School in London, he developed his love for the theater and for all things athletic.  He became School Captain in his final year, before going to Cambridge University to study French and Italian literature.  While there, he played university rugby and performed in many theatrical productions.  He also spent a study year in Pavia, Italy, before graduating with first-class honors.
        While Jamie has always wanted to act, his acceptance to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art marked the decision to make it his career.  Still at LAMDA, he was cast in his first professional role, as Archie Kennedy in TV's Horatio Hornblower miniseries.  His recent credits include Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' HBO miniseries, Band of Brothers, as well as Daniel Deronda for the BBC.  Jamie was a series regular on the ITV shows Peak Practice and Ultimate Force, and most recently portrayed the role of Price Hal in Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, at the Bristol Old Vic.
        Jamie has since worked steadily in TV, film and radio in Europe and the United States.

        Ann's most famous genre work was writing the 1984 novelization of the television miniseries V.  She went on to collaborate on two more books in the V series, East Coast Crisis with Howard Weinstein and Death Tide with Deborah Marshall.
        Ann and noted fantasy author Andre Norton wrote two Witch World novels together.  Both Gryphon's Eyrie and Songsmith are still in print from Tor Books.  Andre Norton's recent passing has brought increasing demand for her works.  Ann and Andre were friends for nearly 30 years.  Andre Norton was the first woman to be declared a Grand Master in the field of science fiction and fantasy by Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

        Ann has not confined herself to writing media-related fiction.  Half her work is in her own original universes.  Her major science fiction undertaking was the StarBridge series for Berkley/Putnam.  These books, written solo or in collaboration with gifted new talents, centered around a school for young diplomats, translators and explorers, both alien and human, located on an asteroid far from Earth.  Series titles are StarBridge, Silent Dances, Shadow World, Serpent's Gift, Silent Songs, Voices of Chaos and Ancestor's World.
        StarBridge Book One was placed on the American Library Association's Young Adult Services Division's list of Best Books of 1991, and Silent Dances (Book Two, co-authored with Kathleen O'Malley) made the 1991 Preliminary ballot for the Nebula, the award given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.  Serpent's Gift (Book Four, with Deborah A.

John de Lancie
Star Trek Guest Stars
The 2007 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
TrekTrak Presents: Data, The Doctor and Q

John de Lancie, whose portrayal of the mercurial character "Q" in Star Trek: The Next Generation has made him internationally (if not intergalactically) famous, was not always an omnipotent being descended from the Q Continuum.  In fact, he comes from Philadelphia.
        At 14, John played the part of Henry the Fifth in a school play.  To everyone's astonishment, he was good.  His father suggested to his son that he become an actor. John went on to Kent State University, where he immersed himself in the drama program.  After Kent came the Juilliard Drama School, and after Juilliard, John joined the American Shakespeare Festival at Stratford.  At the close of the season, he was offered a contract with Universal Studios in California.  For two years, he worked at Universal on over 35 shows, including the acclaimed miniseries Black Beauty, Little Women, The Thornbirds and The Captains and Kings.  In 1980, John went back to the theater as a member of the Seattle Repertory Company.  A year later, he returned to Los Angeles and created the very successful character of Eugene Bedford for the daytime series Days of Our Lives.  What ensued can only be described as a three-year "romp" that broke the mold of daytime TV and garnered John two People's Choice awards, as well as a reputation for creative eccentricity.
        John's unique twist on nearly all the characters he's played continued into his next major role as the omnipotent "Q" on Star Trek: The Next Generation.  The cult popularity of this character is so widespread that John's likeness has appeared in countless merchandising and promotional products.  He has been the subject of hundreds of articles in newspapers and magazines and has won, time after time, the popular votes for "Best Villain," "Best Recurring" and "Best Loved" character in this vastly popular franchise.  Independent television stations throughout North America, Australia and England have hosted "John 'Q' Week," airing all his episodes together.
        John's feature film roles include The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, The Fisher King, Bad Influence, The Onion Field, Taking Care of Business, Arcade, Deep Red, Fearless, Evolver and Multiplicity.  He has appeared in over a hundred television shows, including Legend, L.A. Law, Picket Fences, Civil Wars, Thornbirds, The Practice and Touched by an Angel.
        John's most memorable stage roles include Jack Tanner in Man and Superman and Humphrey in The Common Pursuit.  He has performed with Kurt Masur and the New York Philharmonic, Esa Peka Salonen Orchestra and Montreal Symphony, Charles Dutoit with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Montreal Symphony, Andreas Delps and the Milwaukee Symphony and David Zinman and Lawrence Foster and the Aspen Music Festival Orchestra.  He has also performed at the Kennedy Center.  His repertoire includes Peer Gynt, King David, The Bourgeois Gentleman, The Lincoln Portrait, St. Joan, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Young People's Guide to the Orchestra and of course, Peter and the Wolf.
        John held the position of Associate Artistic Director of L.A. Theater Works, the producing arm of KCRW-FM and National Public Radio, where the series The Play's the Thing originates.  He has directed such plays as Fallen Angel with Annette Bening, Judith Ivey and Joe Mantegna; The Waldorf Conference with Edward Asner, Ron Rifkin, Shelley Berman and John Randolph and the nationwide Halloween National Public Radio broadcast of Invasion from Mars with Leonard Nimoy.  John has performed in many radio shows, the most memorable being Cassius on the BBC Radio Production of Julius Caesar, co-starring Stacy Keach and Richard Dreyfuss.
        John is co-owner, with Leonard Nimoy, of Alien Voices, a production company devoted to the dramatization of classic science fiction.  Alien Voices has produced for Simon & Schuster Audio two-hour dramatizations of The Time Machine, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Lost World, The Invisible Man and First Men in the Moon.  Alien Voices has also produced for The Sci-Fi Channel three one-hour live specials: The First Men in the Moon, The Lost World and a Halloween tribute to Poe, Wilde and Kipling.
        John is married to actress-singer Marnie Mosiman, with whom he has two sons.

Brian Holloway
Star Trek: New Voyages
TrekTrak Presents: "World Enough and Time"
Professional Star Trek Costume-Building
Brian began his theater career at the ripe old age of 7 when he appeared in a regional theatrical production of Fiddler on the Roof with his father.  Since then, the acting bug has hit hard and became a full-time commitment.  Although he dabbled in the medical field for a short time, he could not be kept long from the bright lights and appeal of the stage.  After receiving his BFA in Performance Arts, he toured nationally with several theater organizations for about seven years and could be seen headlining in productions ranging from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Henry IV, Parts I and II to musicals like Big River, Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me, Kate and Jekyll & Hyde, to name a few.
        Brian got into science fiction when he was still in high school in Utah and has been and avid and regular convention attendee since he was 15.  He has also received theater degrees in costume and makeup design and has won national and regional awards for his design work.  He even had costume designs for an original theatrical piece, HOTLINE!, displayed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.  While in Utah, he was fortunate to befriend Paula Crist, an actress and stuntwoman for productions like Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Battlestar Galactica and the TV series Planet of the Apes.  Paula got him connected to the film industry and he has been fortunate enough to land limited work in such productions as The Patriot, Last of the Mohicans, Domestic Disturbance, Doctor Who: The Movie, Highlander: The Series, Shallow Hal and Star Trek (an extra in the background in The Motion Picture and in the Voyager episode "Nemesis").
        Brian now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has had the great fortune to meet such wonderful people here and has learned much from local celebrities and fellow con-goers such as Cheralyn Lambeth, the 501st Squadron and the SCA Wardrobe Guild.

Keela & Katkith's Klingon Karaoke

Keela and Katkith, who both love to sing, debuted their version of Klingon Karaoke at Spartacon in November 2002.  It was well received and they were very excited.  The next stop was ConCarolinas in 2003, where it was also enjoyed.  Writer Stephen Euin Cobb had this to say about his experience to convention planners: "I also had a startlingly good time at the 'Klingon Karaoke' and the live performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but that's a different story."  Since then, Klingon Karaoke has been a regular part of the ConCarolinas' programming and this year was no exception with a Friday night performance and, thanks to a fan petition, Saturday night as well!  Klingon Karaoke has also been performed at Beach Bash 2003, Stellarcon 2005 and Starfleet's Region 1 Summit 2005.  Keela and Katkith are scheduled to return in 2006 for both Stellarcon and ConCarolinas.  
        Keela & Katkith debuted their Klingon Karaoke at TrekTrak in 2005 to an enormously enthusiastic audience and are delighted to return in 2006 for their second year.  All the songs are in the huMan tongue, as normal Karaoke is; it's just that the venue is Karaoke with a Klingon twist.  TODAY is a GOOD day to SING!

Cheralyn L. Lambeth
Professional Star Trek Costume-Building
Cheralyn began creating her own costumes and creatures at an early age, when her mother finally refused to make any more odd costumes for her at Halloween.  She carried this obsession with her into college at UNC-Chapel Hill where, after having failed miserably as an Air Force Reservist, she decided to major in something much more useful such as Dramatic Arts and Radio/TV/Motion Pictures.  Shortly after graduation, Cheralyn relocated to New York to study costumes, wigs and make-up at the Juilliard School, and earned her first fifteen minutes of fame performing Off-Broadway with John Leguizamo in Mambo Mouth.  She then moved to Minneapolis to help create Muppet costumes for Sesame Street Live! (as well as a large purple bunny for the film The Net), and returned to New York a year later to work with Jim Henson Productions on the TV series Dinosaurs! and the film The Muppet Christmas Carol.
        After her time at Henson, Cheralyn worked with Paramount Production Services, creating costumes and props for Paramount properties such as The Star Trek Earth Tour, Titanic: The Movie on Tour, and Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hiilton.  Some of her other credits include work (both in front of and behind the camera) on Mel Gibson's The Patriot, and costuming work on the Park Service historical film Manassas: End of Innocence, directed by Star Wars sound specialist Ben Burtt.  In addition to her costume work, Cheralyn has served as playtester for the Star Wars RPG Mission to Lianna, and has written articles for such genre-related periodicals as Bjo Trimble's Sci-Fi Spotlight and Con-Tour Magazine.
        Most recently, Cheralyn completed work on the New Line Cinema feature film The New World, starring Colin Farrell, which is scheduled for release this November.  She also appeared in the History Channel docudrama Isaac's Storm, and can occasionally be seen in various commercials.  Currently, Cheralyn works as a freelance puppet builder/performer in Charlotte NC, and is putting the finishing touches on her first book, The Well-Dressed Puppet, scheduled for release by Grey Seal Puppets later this year.

BarBara Luna
Star Trek Guest Stars
BarBara Luna was born in Manhattan and virtually grew up on Broadway.  Rodgers & Hammerstein cast her in the Broadway hit musical South Pacific to create the role of Ezio Pinza’s daughter Ngana.  When she outgrew her sarong, Luna, as she prefers to be called, was cast again by Rodgers & Hammerstein to appear in The King & I as one of the Siamese children.  By the time the show was closing, she had advanced to “swing girl” of the company.  With only several months left before graduating high school and not wanting to go on tour with the show, Luna decided to audition for the understudy role of Lotus Blossom in Teahouse of the August Moon.  Not only was she hired, eight months later, Luna was given the starring role in the first national touring company for three years.  This role was spoken entirely in Japanese.
        While she was appearing with Teahouse in Los Angeles, Luna was discovered by director Mervyn Leroy to portray the blind girl, Camille, and love interest to Frank Sinatra in The Devil at 4 O'Clock, also starring Spencer Tracy.  This led to other films such as Firecreek with James Stewart and Henry Fonda.  Working under the direction of Stanley Kramer in Ship of Fools with international legends Vivian Leigh, Simone Signoret, Oskar Werner and Lee Marvin was not only challenging, but one of the highlights in Luna’s career.  Portraying Cat, queen bee of the prison in The Concrete Jungle, which is now considered a cult film, was an even greater challenge.  After all, how often does one get to portray a drug-pushing lesbian killer?  Irwin Allen’s Five Weeks in a Balloon, starring Red Buttons, Fabian and Barbara Eden, gave Luna another chance to work with several other film legends: Peter Lorre, Sir Cedric Hardwicke and Herbert Marshall.
        Her versatile and timeless look, along with her talent, has afforded Luna the opportunity to have a lengthy television career as well.  Luna feels honored to be so well remembered for her portrayal of Marlena Moreau in the classic episode “Mirror, Mirror” from the original Star Trek series.  She has guest-starred on nearly five hundred television shows.  Some of her favorites are Walt Disney’s Zorro, The Big Valley, Hawaii Five-O, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and The Outer Limits.
        Luna continued to keep one foot on Broadway.  In-between film commitments, she appeared in five companies of West Side Story in the role of Anita, including a revival at Lincoln Center in New York City.  Her last Broadway show was A Chorus Line in the role of Morales, in which she sang the beautiful Marvin Hamlish tune “What I Did for Love."  This inspired the multitalented Luna to meet with Hairspray Tony award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman to prepare a nightclub act for her... and that they did: “An Evening with BarBara Luna.”  A review was noticed by an agent at the William Morris office, who booked Luna to open for Bill Cosby at Caesars Palace in Atlantic City.
        Luna was offered the world of soap opera.  After a six-month stint of creating the role of Anna Ryder on Search for Tomorrow, she was then given a two-year contract to portray Maria Roberts on One Life to Live.  This character very quickly became notorious and extremely popular as “The bitch everyone loved to hate."
        Traveling around the world to attend Star Trek conventions and sometimes performing her club act has been very rewarding.  Meeting the fans has been heart-warming, informative and loads of fun, and for this she is grateful.

Prior to joining the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987, Gates worked extensively on the New York stage, both acting and directing.  Her roles include leads in the New York productions of To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday, How to Say Goodbye, Cloud 9 and Emerald City.
        During the third season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gates was seen in Beyond the Groove, a British television production, written and starring the late actor David Rappaport.  Other roles included the lead in the world premiere stage production of Derek Walcott's Viva Detroit in Los Angeles, the one-hour drama Marker during UPN's debut season, and the feature films Taking Care of Business and The Hunt for Red October.  Gates also appeared in The Muppets Take Manhattan.  After that, she continued to work with Jim Henson for several years, serving as director of choreography and puppet movement on the film Labyrinth.
        Raised in Ohio, Gates served on the faculties of several theater arts training programs around the country including New York University Graduate School of the Arts, Brandeis University and the University of Pittsburgh.  She earned her B.A. cum laude in Theater Arts from Brandeis University and studied with Jacques LeCoq in Paris for several years.  In 1991, prior to filming the fifth season of TNG, Gates gave birth to a next generation of her own, James Cleveland Gates-Talbot.

Jack Moore
Star Trek vs. Stargate
Jack was once asked what his earliest memories of science fiction were, and he refused to answer on the grounds of self-incrimination.  He was once noted as saying about his favorite celebrity, "the guy made a lot of money in television, film and theater.  I was right there with him, sitting on my butt, watching him make it the whole way."  Such qualifies Jack as a member of the unique subculture known as fandom.
        If only he had stopped there, he might not be what he is today: the Commander of Stargate Atlanta, the largest Stargate fan group in the city, if not the southeast.  He is also a director of the up-and-coming convention known as Timegate.  When not engrossed in the world of fantasy, he sidelines as an officer of the law---so well, that he has been paid to do it fulltime for the past twenty years.  He even still finds time to write and draw on occasion while fulfilling his lifelong dream of committing slow and painful suicide by raising a teenager on his own.


Larry Nemececk
Loading the Canon: What Is "Real" Star Trek?
Star Trek XI: The Search for (A New) Spock?
From the wilds of untamed Oklahoma, there is fandom among the football. Larry enjoyed both, and with his theatre degree in a back pocket as well, he found himself in Los Angeles to write 1992's Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion thanks to his own reference zines.
        Now editor of the once and future glossy licensed Communicator magazine and a contributor producer to CBS' startrek.com, the longtime columnist for Titan's UK-turned-US magazine was art coordinator and advisor on Trek's UK Fact Files, project consultant for everything from the World Tour to Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas, coauthor of The Making of First Contact (Titan) and contributor to the Star Trek Star Maps (Pocket)---and with wife Janet, sold the initial story for Star Trek: Voyager's "Prophecy."
        But his roots predate those cameos in the Star Trek: New Voyages fan films: the fan skeletons go back to OKC's old SoonerCon and his own ThunderCon, along with two theatre degrees and 10+ years in newsprint.  Now in SoCal, "get a life" also means docent time at hero Will Rogers' Historic Ranch State Park and helping found the Burbank Democratic Club.  And oh, yeah, being a dad.

        Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Brent moved to New York after college, where he performed in numerous off-Broadway plays.  "The play that finally pushed me over into the serious-actor category was a public theater production of The Seagull [Anton Chekhov] for Joseph Papp," he says.  Brent eventually won roles in the Broadway musical productions of Sunday in the Park with George, The Three Musketeers and Big River, which was based on the story of Huckleberry Finn.
        After moving to Los Angeles in 1984, Brent appeared in the Westwood Playhouse production of Little Shop of Horrors.  His other credits include the Woody Allen film Stardust Memories, a cameo in the movie The Miss Firecracker Contest and guest-starring roles in such television series as Cheers, The Twilight Zone, Night Court and Hill Street Blues.  Brent has also been featured in the films Phenomenon, Independence Day, Out to Sea and the Oscar-nominated, Martin Scorcese-directed The Aviator.  He also appeared in the 2006 Hilary and Haylie Duff movie Material Girls.
        During the fourth-season hiatus of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Brent co-produced and released his first album, entitled Ol' Yellow Eyes Is Back, featuring some of the most popular classic standards ever recorded.  Included on the album is the single "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie," which has background vocals provided by the "The Sunspots," more familiar to Star Trek: The Next Generation fans as Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton and Michael Dorn.
        Following on from his Star Trek duties, Brent has performed in a variety of capacities.  His vocal talents can be heard impersonating late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien in the feature-length animated movie South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.  He also appeared in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, the movie based on the tragic life of the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Oscar (Carmen Jones, 1954), as her faithful manager, Earl Mills.  In 2000, Brent portrayed Stromboli in Disney's musical live-action version of Geppetto.  He also appeared in the 2000 mini-series A Girl Thing.  Most recently, Brent played Dr. Nigel Fenway in all 13 episodes of Brannon Braga's science fiction series, Threshold.

        Previously, he was a CG Supervisor at Zoic Studios working on the Sci-Fi Channel's miniseries and first season of Battlestar Galactica.  The miniseries was nominated for an Emmy award and won a Visual Effects Society award in 2004.  The first-season episode "33" was also nominated for a 2005 Emmy.  His other projects for Zoic have included work as a Visual Effects Artist on Firefly, which won the 2003 Emmy for special visual effects, the pilot for a new Lost in Space series, Steven Bochco's pilot for NYPD 2069, and the "Sketchernauts" commercial for Sketchers shoes.
        Lee has a broad visual effects background and his experience includes work on feature films, music videos, theme park attractions, fully animated episodic television and video games.  While at Foundation Imaging, he worked on the Robert Wise Director's Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture and spent several seasons on Star Trek: Voyager.  Additionally, he worked on Roughnecks: The Starship Trooper Chronicles and Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future.  Lee was first nominated for an Emmy in 2002 for his work on the ABC made-for-television movie Superfire.
        Prior to his career in the world of visual effects, Lee worked in IT operations and support for JP Morgan Bank in London.  He created his own company, ModelEFX, where he specialized in visual effects and web site design, and he sold television and film-related merchandise.  Lee is also a modelmaker and has created miniatures for film and television productions, including the Cartoon Network's Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
        Lee's interest in filmmaking, miniatures and effects began at an early age watching the Gerry Anderson series Thunderbirds and Space: 1999 while growing up in Great Britain.


Angela Tebbe
Star Trek vs. Stargate
From Day One, Angela has been a sci-fi fan, cutting her teeth on reruns of Star Trek and The Twilight Zone with her parents and growing up on other adventures with Space: 1999, the original Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers, just to name a few.  She reads anything fantasy or science fiction-related and her enthusiasm for the genre continues to grow with each year.  Her first convention, while in college, was a Star Trek con featuring Marina Sirtis, and it was up, up and away from there.  Angela enjoys exploring new sci-fi genres, including Firefly and the expanding Stargate movies and shows, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.  To get a glimpse into "being there," Angela participates in roleplaying games based on these shows, which is as close as acting for most people.  Angela is affiliated with several sci-fi-related groups, including Stargate Atlanta (where she is an officer), STARFLEET, the Klingon Assault Group, Dead Pirates of Sci-Fi Fandom, SE Browncoats and Atlanta Gallifreyans.  She began attending Dragon*Con in 2000 and sees no end in sight.


The TrekTrak Filk Concert
Voltaire was born in Havana, Cuba in 1967.  He emigrated with his family to the U.S. as a child and settled in New Jersey (a fact he never stops complaining about!).
        Voltaire is a singer/songwriter whose music has its roots deeply imbedded in European folk music.  His songs speak of love and, most often, the loss thereof with the added twist of how best to seek revenge on the ones who have hurt you.  Lyrically, he explores and reveals those moments of vulnerability most would rather not discuss and exploits with childish abandon those fleeting streaks of cruelty we all feel but choose not to act upon or even mention.
        Voltaire's live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are highly theatrical---full of props and stories.  The visual quality of his performances is not surprising; Voltaire has been directing commercials and animating short films for the last ten years.  He's best known for his Hieronymous Bosch-inspired station IDs for MTV.
        Inspired by the films of Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad), Voltaire began animating at the age of ten on a Super8 camera.  At that time, he says, "no three-dimensional object was safe.  My brother's action figures, my sister's dolls, silverware, etc... If it was missing, chances were that it was in the basement in front of my camera."
        Eventually, piecing together snippets of information from fanzines, he was able to teach himself how to make foam rubber animation models and animate them with fluidity and realism.  The films of his childhood landed him his first directing job in 1988. That project was the classic MTV ID called "MTV-Bosch."  The stop-motion tour of the hellish "Garden of Earthly Delights" went on to win several awards, including a Broadcast Design Award, and helped to establish Voltaire's style of animation.
        His strange stew of Gothic darkness, baroque lushness and whimsical surrealism has been seen in a score of television commercials for clients such as Cartoon Network, USA and The Sci-Fi Channel.  His short films, which he describes as being "an opportunity for me to be as strange and demented as I care to be," have been seen at animation festivals around the world, including the sinister "Rakthavira," which toured as part of Expanded Entertainment's "Too Outrageous Animation."
        These days, Voltaire continues writing, recording and performing music, directing and animating commercials and projects for television and working on the occasional comic book.  Somewhere in there, he also teaches stop-motion animation at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
       When not writing songs about hacking up his ex-lover's lovers or offing the man upstairs, Voltaire spends a lot of time at science fiction conventions.  Usually, he is promoting his comic books and Chi-Chian animated series, but we all know he really just goes to them in the hopes of picking up a new Starfleet uniform or that hard-to-get, limited edition Tribble!  Voltaire, you see, is an avid Star Trek fan (even stating in an interview on The Sci Fi Channel show Exposure that his dream in life is to play a Vulcan!).
        One night after one of his shows at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, he was invited to sit in on a "filk" session.  Filk apparently is a convention phenomenon where musicians sing songs that have science fiction lyrics transplanted over recognizable folk melodies. He says, "There I was, hearing these songs about Star Trek, and I thought, damn!  Now, why didn't I think of this?!  My love for music and obsession with Star Trek collided, and I started to write Star Trek parody songs."  At first, he would play them in his solo acoustic shows at conventions and later recorded them and posted them on MP3.com, where they quickly rose up the comedy charts.
        Voltaire's CD Banned on Vulcan contains solo acoustic versions of four Star Trek parody songs, including the hysterical "Worf's Revenge: A Klingon Rap," which explains once and for all why Worf is the Mac Dad of the Klingon Empire.  "The USS Make Sh*t Up" is about that pivotal moment in every episode of every Star Trek series where, when finding themselves up against insurmountable odds, the crew starts "making sh*t up!"  ("Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish...!" etc.)  "The Sexy Data Tango" really crosses the line, describing what it's like having sex with Data!  (And it's written in Star Trek jargon!  Lower your shields and spread your nacelles to make room for his craft, while he thrusts his Delta Flyer into your big, fat, juicy aft!)  "Screw the Okampa (I Want to Go Home)" serves as a campfire song for disgruntled crew members on Voyager who hate Janeway for stranding them in the Delta Quadrant.  If you are fan of Star Trek and love raunchy humor, then this is the filk performance for you!

The TrekTrak Show
The 2007 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant

Eric first began watching the original Star Trek series in the afternoon after getting home from junior high school in the early 1970s.  As a high school sophomore, hoping to connect with other fans of the show, he bought a copy of All About Star Trek Fan Clubs in 1977 and was amazed to discover that one of the names on the magazine's pen-pal list was a fellow student in one of his very own classes!  He introduced himself to her, who then loaned him a copy of the fanzine Off the Beaten Trek, in which the lead story dealt with how Spock had to deal with the death of Captain Kirk on a landing party mission.  A lifelong friendship---and a brand new Trekkie---was born!  A year later, in 1978, he attended his very first Star Trek convention: Vul-Con, a one-day event at Greenville (S.C.) Technical College with no guests but an auditorium filled with fanzines, home-made costumes and enthusiastic fans buzzing with rumors about the possibility of Star Trek returning as a major motion picture!
       In the summer of 1980, Eric founded the United Federation of Trekkers in Columbia, S.C., of which he served as president for the next eight years.  Within three years, the UFT grew to become the largest Star Trek fan club in the state, with over one hundred dues-paying members.  As president, he was a featured guest on the daily radio talk shows on WIS-AM 56 and WSOC-FM 100, was interviewed on several occasions by The State, The Carolina Reporter and The (USC) Gamecock newspapers, and in 1983 was featured in a segment of Columbia's local edition of PM Magazine, on WIS-TV.  Eric also served as editor and publisher of the UFT's monthly newsletter, Captain's Quarters, which at one point was sold on local newsstands as a mini-fanzine, as well as the UFT's one-shot fanzine, Star Sector One.  Club activities included monthly meetings, viewings of original series episodes on 35mm film at the local planetarium, serving as costumed ushers for a science fiction-themed concert presented by the Columbia Philharmonic Orchestra, attending Star Trek motion picture premieres in costume and annual picnics and barbecues at a local park.  After eight glorious years, Eric resigned the presidency of the UFT and editorship of its newsletter in 1988 and relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta.
        In 1990, Eric joined the Atlanta in '95 WorldCon Bid Committee, a group dedicated to bringing the 1995 WorldCon to Atlanta.  During the next two years, he served the bid committee as its Volunteer Coordinator and as Central Mailer of its internal amateur press association, Atlapa.  It was during this period that he met, worked with and became friends with Ed Kramer, a founder and then-chairman of Dragon*Con.  At the 1992 WorldCon in Orlando, following the announcement of Glasgow, Scotland's successful bid for the 1995 WorldCon, Ed asked Eric to join the Dragon*Con organization and develop a track of programming devoted to Star Trek.  Nine months later, in July 1993, Eric unleashed the very first TrekTrak... and Dragon*Con has never been the same!  Fourteen years, more than three hundred programming events and many dozens of programming participants later, TrekTrak, under Eric's singular direction, has become one of Dragon*Con's most popular, well-attended and highly respected tracks of programming.  In 2002, in recognition of TrekTrak's tenth year and its many contributions and achievements that helped make Dragon*Con the twelfth largest annual convention in Atlanta, Mayor Shirley Franklin proclaimed September 2, 2002 as "TrekTrak Day" in the City of Atlanta.  In 2005 and again in 2006, TrekTrak's most popular annual event, the Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant, was recognized by America Online as one of the Top 11 Most Offbeat Beauty Pageants Across America.  The MKE pageant has also been featured in Discover magazine, Shock magazine, Spin magazine, Creative Loafing and on FoxNews.com.
        In 2003, Eric published Star Sector Two, a 72-page Star Trek fanzine set entirely in the Original Series universe.  In addition to his service aboard the USS Republic, he is also a member of the IKAV Nemesis, the IKV Blackfire and an honorary lifetime member of the Klingon Imperial Embassy.  Eric was honored to be selected as the Fan Guest of Honor at Sci-Fi Summer Con in Atlanta in June 2004.
        In September 2006, Eric served as a production assistant on the upstate New York set of Star Trek: New Voyages during the filming of the episode "World Enough and Time," featuring George Takei as Lt. Sulu.  In October 2006, Eric was interviewed by CNN's Hong Kong news anchor Hugh Riminton about Star Trek's 40th anniversary in a segment on CNN Today, broadcast live around the world on CNN International.  Later the same month, he appeared in Star Trek costume in an episode of CNN's Future Summit program featuring "iconic sci-fi forms of travel."
Eric joined the USS Republic NCC-1371, a chapter of STARFLEET International, in 2003 and was elected Commanding Officer in May 2006.  After establishing an all-new Internet presence for the chapter, creating a successful Member Benefits program for the membership, coordinating a busy schedule of chapter activities and nearly tripling the membership roster in his first six months, Commander Watts was promoted to Captain by STARFLEET International in December 2006.  In March 2007, Captain Watts received the STARFLEET Region 2 Commanding Officer of the Year Award at the 2007 Region 2 Summit in Columbus, Georgia, and in August 2007, he was awarded the STARFLEET International Commanding Officer of the Year at the STARFLEET International Conference in Denver, Colorado.
        Eric created and was the editor and publisher of The New Moon Directory, an annual index to amateur press associations, from 1988 to 1997.  He was a member of the amateur press association Imaginapa from 1980 to 2002 and served as its elected Central Mailer for 14 of its 23 years.  He is also a former member of several other amateur press associations, including Apa Enterprise, Talking of Trek, GAPS, Atlapa and Dragon*Citings.
        Eric is currently performing in his twelfth season as a member of the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus.  Since 1993, he has served that organization at various times as newsletter editor, web site administrator, marketing committee chairman, office manager and a two-year term on its Board of Directors, and he currently serves on the archives and marketing committees.  He is also a member of Atlanta Prime Timers and Georgia Right to Life, and a former longtime member of Southern Bears, for whom he also served a one-year term on its Board of Directors and briefly as newsletter editor.
        Eric started performing stand-up comedy in 2000 and has performed at The Comedy House in Kennesaw, Eddie's Attic in Decatur and The Kudzoo Cantina in Bowdon.  In May 2000, he placed as a finalist in WB36's Late Nite Laff-Off competition at Dave & Buster's in Duluth, and was a featured performer at Eddie's Attic's Third Annual Gay Comedy Festival in June 2001.
        An avid karaoke fan, Eric took first place in a local karaoke competition associated with the Karaoke World Contest USA organization in February 2006.  He then advanced to the Georgia state finals, where he took third place in March 2006.  That led him to the Region 6 semifinals (GA, AL, TN, NC, SC, FL), held in Pell City, Alabama, in May 2006, where he competed against 26 excellent vocalists and where he says he "had fun."

        Eric is Dragon*Con's longest-tenured track director and is honored to serve this, his fifteenth year, as Dragon*Con's Director of Star Trek Programming.
