Lee ArrivesLee Arrives

Lee Shackleford is a writer for stage, screen, and radio with more than 150 produced scripts to his credit. His best-known works are in the deathless realm on Sherlock Holmes: he wrote and starred in the off-Broadway hit HOLMES & WATSON, then was the writer responsible for getting Data back into a deerstalker hat on STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, and most recently created the webseries pilot HERLOCK.

But for all the time Lee has devoted to Sherlock Holmes, science fiction is his first love. Thanks to the proliferations of fanzines in the 1970s, Lee was a widely-published writer and illustrator of STAR TREK fan fiction. (He still dresses up like TREK characters from time to time.) His first professional sales as a screenwriter were all science-fiction movies. All of these are, alas, as yet unproduced -- but Lee's modern adaptation of Karel Čapek's groundbreaking play R.U.R. (ROSSUM'S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS) was produced off-Broadway in 2013, and has become the most widely-produced version of the Čapek play.

James Naughton

Host, 2005-2011

James Naughton has been a sci-fi fan for as long as he can remember. Growing up in the UK, he spent most of his early years cowering behind the sofa to the Daleks.

Always interested in technology, in early 2005 he started his own podcast, about everything and anything. This lead to involvement in various other shows, such as Rough, Ready and Raw and Doctor Who: Podshock. These days though, he prefers to invest his time podcasting solely about science fiction.

Louis Trapani

Louis Trapani founded the Gallifreyan Embassy (GE) in June of 1985 to serve the growing fandom centered around Doctor Who and other British science fiction during the mid-80s in the US. Originally a local organization with local meetings, today it is international, serving the global community.

In 1989, Louis graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York where he majored in the media arts department.
