RahadyanS is so old (b. 1963), he took the SAT's writing in cuneiform on clay tablets.

Whenever I tell this self-deprecating joke, someone's bound to point out that there was no university system in those days.

I am one of those fans who wandered between FIJAGH (Fandom is Just a Hobby) and FIAWOL (Fandom is a Way of Life) over the past 35 years. Hopefully, I will stay with the former mindset for the rest of my days.

My fandom writings begin in 1973 with a tale of the USS Goliath in elementary school, then those of the superdreadnoughts USS Omega and USS Valiant III and the Third United Federation of Planets in junior high. Somewhere in there were also stories about the Constitution-class USS Yorktown under Captain Philip Francis Reichardt.

Star Trek: Shadowstar StationEdit

My brother Hartriono (b. 1969) created the original concept behind Star Trek: Shadowstar Station — a team of test pilots assigned to a space station — for our Starfleet International chapter in 1995 and I expanded a bit on it. The concept of the station grew from being fairly ragtag, almost barebones, not much bigger than the 1990s concepts for the International Space Station to a facility that could accomodate a visit from almost three dozen starships.

In the beginning, we also experimented with telling stories à la the "Which Way Adventures" tales for kids that had been popular in the early 1980's (e.g., "Through the Looking Glass"), as well as the "quilting bee" type of long story, where people from different chapters would contribute a line or a paragraph from their fictional metaphor's viewpoint. Such was the case with "Pomp and Circumstantial Evidence."

Giving credit where it's dueEdit

Some of the articles concerning events in the Star Trek: Avenger continuity were derived from Alex Rosenzweig's (AlexR} AvengerPedia. While I cite the primary source for those articles, it behooves me to cite the secondary source as well.

As well, I am indebted to the work of Chris Wallace, former director of the Advanced Starship Design Bureau of Starfleet International, and Scott A. Akers (Chunone), former historian of Starfleet International and now director of a private fan historical institute.

While I have read many of the stories published by Orion Press, some material herein was derived from a secondary source, that of the Lexicon in PDF form on the Orion Press website.

Contributor of the Month: February 2008Edit

I am quite honored to have been named the February 2008 Contributor of the Month. Thank you very much to all who nominated me. I'll work on maintaining the quality of work that such an honor entails.
