Clifford Bell
Star Trek: Enterprise
Star Trek: Voyager: The Final Verdict
Cliff's involvement with outer space began at a very young age, when his father, an Air Force test pilot, was one of those selected to try out for the original astronaut program.  At his mother's request his father turned it down, but the space program was followed closely by his family, as watching every launch was mandatory.  This led to his avid interest in science fiction and the dreams of colonizing space.  Cliff would spend his spare time at the base library reading the books of Jules Verne, H G Wells, Asimov, Bradbury and Sturgeon, to name a few.  In the fifth grade, he ended up in the principal's office for reading "Mysterious Island" when he was supposed to be reading the fifth grade reader.  When Star Trek first aired, Cliff was there, glued to the set for every episode, even "Spock's Brain."  After high school, he attended California State University at Long Beach and earned a BS in Marine Biology.  He then joined the Navy, where he served as a Surface Warfare Officer and became an Anti-Submarine Warfare specialist.  After leaving the Navy, he went to work for defense contractors and spent some time in Saudi Arabia.  His work led him to a career in software testing and evaluation and he now works as the Software Quality Assurance manager for Interealty Corporation, the largest provider of software solutions to the real estate industry.  This is Cliff's third year on TrekTrak.

Andrea BentonAndrea Benton

Julie Caitlin BrownJulie Caitlin Brown
Star Trek Guest Stars
Julie Caitlin Brown, a native of San Francisco, California, began her musical career at the age of twelve.  After working as a singer-guitarist, competing in vocal jazz in high school, and fronting a number of bands, Julie moved at age eighteen to the Napa Valley.  In Napa, she continued her love of blues and jazz, performing in clubs all over Northern California.  In 1983, she made her stage debut as Mary Magdalene in the Mondavi Concert Series production of Jesus Christ Superstar.  Other musicals followed, along with straight plays, including the critically acclaimed and sold-out production of A Late Snow at Theatre Rhinoceros in San Francisco.
        Nineteen eighty-eight found Julie in Florida where, over the next two years, she appeared in over sixty commercials, and was also seen in the NBC movie Roxanne -- The Prize Pulitzer, ABC's B. L. Stryker, CBS's Wolf, and the feature films Miami Blues with Alec Baldwin and Chains of Gold with John Travolta.
        Making the move to New York in 1990, Julie appeared in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum starring George Wendt, as -- who else? -- "Gymnasia," for the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival.  That show led to her audition for Tommey Tune's Tony Award-winning Grand Hotel on Broadway, where she took over the lead role of Rafaella Ottanio.  Starring opposite legendary Cyd Charisse, Julie played the role for seventeen months.
        Julie returned home to California in 1992 and immediately landed a pilot for Stephen J. Cannell and went on to guest-star in numerous TV shows. Star Trek fans will recall her performances as Ty Kajada in the 1993 Deep Space Nine episode "The Passenger" and as Vekor in the 1993 Next Generation two-part episode "Gambit," alongside Robin Curtis as Tallera.  Julie has also appeared in Raven for CBS, Dream On for HBO, and many others.  It was a phone call at home from a casting director, Mary Jo Slater, that led to her being offered the role of Na'Toth, on Babylon 5.  After the first season as G'Kar's intense attaché, she then appeared as the human lawyer Guinevere Corey in the second season episode, "There All Honor Lies."
        Recent television projects include: Renegade, Pointman, Vanishing Son and NBC's JAG, where her story as a tough Marine drill instructor, "Boot," was the highest watched episode of that show's season.  The NBC movie of the week, Murder Live, featured Julie as the network news anchor, Julia Cafferty, to great reviews.
        Back onstage, she had the extreme pleasure of originating the role of Claire in the rock opera Bare and also appeared as the first female Kromagg on Sliders, Colonel Kesh.  Julie also appeared as Bonnie Turbovic on Stephen Bochco's CBS series Brooklyn South and as Nicky on Becker with Ted Danson and the actress formerly known as Jadzia Dax, Terry Farrell.
        Julie has been performing her original style of music around the Los Angeles area for the last few years, and her first CD, Sheddin' My Shin, became available in January 1998 on her own label, Illumina.  Long awaited by her fans, the CD featured members of Suzzane Vega's band and utilized the talents of Tony Visconti.  Produced by Beth Ravin in New York, the record reflects the diverse attitudes of Julie, sometimes intimate, other times bold and always heartfelt.  She calls it "music for people who've lived."
        Julie second album, Struck by Lightning, was released in July 2000.  Capturing the feel of her live performances, she also produced this CD, which was recorded in Los Angeles.

James Doohan
An Hour with James Doohan
Beam Him Up, Scotty: He-e-e-ere's Jimmy!
TrekTrak Presents: James Doohan
Although everybody knows James Doohan as Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott on the USS Enterprise (where on countless occasions he rescued the ship), not too many people know of his true heroics.  As a captain in the Royal Canadian Army, Jimmy was wounded on D-Day.  After that, he was a pilot-observer and became known as "the craziest pilot of the Canadian Air Force."  Long before that, at 15 years of age, Jimmy started his acting career as Robin Hood at the Varieté School in Sarnia, Ontario.  In 1946, he won a scholarship at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York, where he taught over the next three years. 
        In 1953, after working on all kinds of theater, film and radio shows, Jimmy went back to Toronto to work on over 4,000 radio shows, 400 TV shows and many theatrical presentations, including Shakespeare.  Eight years later, he moved to Hollywood, where he worked on over a hundred movies and series before landing a role in 1966 that would make him the most famous ship's engineer in history: an unforgettable cruise as Scotty in Star Trek, which continued for many years in the various Trek films. 
        In 1993, Jimmy moved with his wife Wendy and two sons, Eric and Thomas, to Washington State.
    TrekTrak is proud to welcome a true legend, James Doohan, to his first-ever Dragon*Con.

Marjorie Monaghan in Star Trek: VoyagerMarjorie Monaghan
Star Trek Guest Stars
         Born in California and raised in the Midwest, Marjorie spent her early childhood moving from place to place.  Extremely quiet, she had an active imagination and loved reading, telling stories and creating adventures that she and her friends would act out for months on end.  This led her to join the drama club in high school, where she was drawn to the strong sense of community she found in theater, with everyone working hard together for a common end.  Too shy to audition at first, she started out building sets, and still loves the smell of sawdust and paint.  Her first stage role was as Snoopy in a high school production of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown.  An accomplished singer, Marjorie was also actively involved in several singing ensembles at school, and her participation in statewide competitions won her medals both as a soloist and with her groups. 
        Marjorie landed her first professional acting job in an Equity outdoor drama production of Tecumseh, based on the life of the Native American leader.  There, she was able to continue a study of stage combat and weaponry, begun in college, which she still pursues today.  After graduating cum laude from Miami University in Ohio, she headed to New York.  There, she quickly landed her first television role, as a firefighter in the short-lived series H.E.L.P. from Law and Order's Dick Wolf.  The show also starred Wesley Snipes, John Mahoney and John Spencer, and was the first of two times that Marjorie would play a firefighter (so far).
        Marjorie feels lucky to have done a lot of science fiction work, saying "The stories are often mythic, with so much texture.  Also, the women in science fiction are so much fun to play.  Strong, interesting, sexy, smart, multi-dimensional women.  And sometimes you really get to kick some ass!"  In science fiction, she has been seen starring as the fiery pilot Jojo in the series Space Rangers, and appearing as the enigmatic Number One, leader of the Mars Resistance, in Babylon 5.  She also guest-starred as Freya in the 1995 Star Trek: Voyager episode, "Heroes and Demons," as well as on shows such as The Sentinel, The Pretender, Quantum Leap and Deadly Games.  She played Jared in the first full-length cyberpunk feature, Nemesis, and has completed a science fiction film, Sorcerers, which will be at least 50% computer-generated effects.
        Marjorie has also guest-starred in such popular television series as Law and Order, Murder She Wrote, Cheers, Becker, L. A. Law and JAG.  Her most recent starring role in a series was as firefighter and paramedic Kathleen Ryan on Aaron Spelling's Rescue 77.  Marjorie has also appeared in a number of telefims and feature films, including The Bonfire of the Vanities and Regarding Henry
        Living in the Los Angeles area, Marjorie is developing a new television series and is beginning to do some writing.  She continues to sing and is currently learning to play guitar.  Always an avid reader, she enjoys studying archetypal mythology, Celtic history and many other topics esoteric and otherwise.  She practices yoga, loves to travel, and once she finalizes her dual citizenship, would love to work in Europe!

Jeffrey Sooy
Star Trek's Starships
"Ok, I admit it.  I'm one of those closet Star Trek fans.  Years ago I went to the conventions.  I've seen Gene Roddenberry showing his secret "Cage" pilot.  I've gotten most of the signatures I wanted.  Collected all of those AMT ship models in the '70s.  The stuff I have in my attic.  We collected anything that said Star Trek back then.
        "But then I got serious about some real world technology, computers.  Yes, I know all about them.
        "I stopped going to conventions for a long time...
        "I've worked for some very high-tech corporations, like Panasonic, ADP and Earthlink, and seen us getting closer and closer to Trek-like technology.
        "There are events in the last 20 years that expose to my addiction to Star Trek, like the Next Generation party we gave to celebrate the return of Star Trek to television, and again for DS9, and Voyager.  I guess we'll do it again for Enterprise.  The party's at my house!
        "In my office at work, I have a matted and framed cut-away of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D to amaze the engineers, and a painted print of Kirk, Picard and the Enterprise for the less technical side of me.   I still do some collecting and lots of reading."
