Combining a life-long fascination with "Star Trek" with a passion and talent for the written word, writer and producer Ronald D. Moore became one of the most prolific and acclaimed practitioners of science fiction on television in the 1990s. After sneaking a script to Gene Roddenberry while touring the sets for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (Syndicated, 1987-1994), Moore launched a writing career that allowed him engage the characters and themes he grew up with. He spent several years on "The Next Generation," before moving on to the darker, more ambitious "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (Syndicated, 1992-99). He joined the team on "Star Trek: Voyager" (UPN, 1994-2001), only to leave a month later after meeting resistance to the concerns he had regarding the show's direction. His disenchantment led to a break with the "Star Trek" universe, which in hindsight, proved fortuitous - in 2003, he reshaped an old sci-fi favorite, "Battlestar Galactica" (Sci Fi Channel, 2004-09), turning a hokey show from 1978-79 into a dark allegory on war and terrorism, underscoring the consequences of a devastating attack on a secular democracy by fanatics. Thanks to exceptional writing and strong production values, Moore proved himself to be an auteur in a genre usually considered to be the laughingstock of entertainment.
