How long have you been simming?

Since the days of AOL Dial Up (circa 1996).

What was your favourite episode (from the game or Trek in general)?

I love the whole final arc of DS9, and any episode of Enterprise where Trip ends up in his underwear (because for me, that gag never gets old).

What type of music do you enjoy?

A little bit of everything.

What is your favourite sport?

Baseball, football, swimming, tennis.

Do you put you left leg in first, or right? Or do you just jump into your pants both feet first?

I like to toss things up a bit, so it depends on my mood.

Who is your favourite author?

Odi Piccoult, Muriel Spark, Philip Pullman, Mary Roach; Ed Brubaker, Brian K Vaughn, Joss Whedon

What is your favourite movie?

So many to choose from, I can't say.

What is your favourite TV show?

Currently: Supernatural (badass show), How I Met Your Mother, Lost, Battlestar Galactica /// No Longer Running: anything by Joss Whedon, the West Wing, Veronica Mars, Sex and the City, and of course, Star Trek

What is your favourite quote?

'I'm a would-be rebel. The good girl who'd like to be a bad one.' -- Helen Mirren

What was the best advice ever given to you?

Did not answer.

What was your favourite Galaxy moment?

I don't know. Really liked the final TOS arc with Karyn Dallas especially. Love anything by Grey and Krieghoff.

Who is your favourite character on the Galaxy?

Can't pick one absolute favorite if only because then I would feel awkward and stalkerish. So my top 10 in no particular order... Current: Ella Grey, Victor Krieghoff, Brian Elessidil, Tarin Iniara, Kimberly Burton, Karyn Dallas, and Robert West; TOS: Elaithin Jii, James Mitchell, Arel Smith. I also have to say that even though he's not really a central character, I'm really getting attached to M'Kantu.

What activities do you enjoy most?

I don't have a lot of free time these days, but I like going out to eat, working on my never ending novel, and vegging out in front of the tv watching sports or a show on dvd.

Have you ever had anything published?

Give me time.

Ever met any Star Trek or Science Fiction celebrities?

Joss Whedon; I've also met a lot of comic book celebrities (can comic book writers/creators be celebrities?).

What is your claim to fame?

Maybe not a claim to fame, but an interesting fact: I am certified by the State of Arizona to work with Birds of Prey.

What is your first memory of Star Trek?

My first memory is watching Star Trek 4 with my father; then, when I was in 7th grade, my best friend Liz and I got wicked into it and she got me started simming (not to mention convinced me to dress up as Counselor Troi for the school Halloween party -- if that doesn't get you labeled for the rest of your life, I don't know what will).

What other sim groups have you been a part of?

Several, but most notably USS Miranda (Kit Jordan and Slim) and Galaxy TOS (Kit Jordan).

What hobbies do you enjoy?

Writing/reading, political discussion -- though less these days as it's my day job, simming (duh), reading/collecting marvel comics.

Anything else you want to share?

I'm trying to get back into the swing of simming, so if you have an idea and want to write, give me a shout.
