About the Author

Michael Jan Friedman is the author of nearly sixty books of fiction and nonfiction, more than half of which bear the name "Star Trek" or some variation thereof. Ten of his titles have appeared on the "New York Times" bestseller list. He has also written for network and cable television, radio, and comic books, the "Star Trek: Voyager?" episode "Resistance" prominent among his credits. On those rare occasions when he visits the real world, Friedman lives on Long Island with his wife and two sons.

He continues to advise readers that no matter how many Friedmans they know, the vast probability is that none of them are related to him.
