When Star Trek: The Next Generation launched in 1987, it took awhile for fans to get on board. The evolution of the show into a science fiction favorite was influenced by writer and script editor Melinda Snodgrass. Today she is known primarily as a novelist, and frequent collaborator with her friend George R.R. Martin on the WildCards series.
