Abstract: In 1986, Ronald D. Moore received an honorable mention for his entry on Star Trek literature in Cornell University Library?s student book collection contest. Today, he is the mastermind behind the hit TV show "Battlestar Galactica" on the Sci Fi Channel. One of the first scripts Ron sold in 1989 was to the TV series "Star Trek: The Next Generation." This led to prominent role in the Star Trek universe for him and, in the decade after that, he served as a writer and producer on that series, "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager." In fact, he even co-wrote the screenplay for the film "Star Trek: Generations," in which Captain James T. Kirk dies. In this interview, Moore discusses his successful TV series, book collecting and his interest in science fiction.
