The Star Trek Fan Website

Dan Leckie

Webmaster of WarpFactorTrek, Dan is an avid Star Trek fan who lives in Aberdeen, Scotland. Also known as “The Scotch Trekker”, he discovered Star Trek in 1992 when, at the age of nine, he found a VHS tape that had been left in a VCR machine his family had bought; much to his delight, it featured the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Defector”. Dan worked as an administrator, for six years, on the encyclopedic Star Trek website Memory Alpha, which involved studying the making of the various series and films. He has been mentioned in the official Star Trek Magazine and has recently qualified from a Star Trek course run at Glasgow Clyde College. Nowadays, he helps run The Scotch Trekker YouTube channel, which regularly features live interviews with the cast and crew of Star Trek.

Rick Padwick

A forty-year-old Star Trek fan, who has spent a lifetime imagining himself travelling among the stars ever since he first heard the words, “Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise, its continuing mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no-one has gone before.” With a collection of more than 250 Star Trek books, Rick hopes one day to write one himself, even if it is never published.
