Nielco van den Bosch.
Why do you consider yourself a Star Trek fan?
I am an executive producer of the fanseries Star Trek: Batavia and Star Trek: Dark Armada, where I play the part of Lt. Cmdr. Jack Dagger. And I’m also a member of the Dutch Star Trek fanclub “The Flying Dutch”.
Which Star Trek series do you like most and why? Star Trek: The Next Generation,I may have seen an episode of The Original Series as a small child but Star Trek: The Next Generation introduced me to Star Trek. The first Next Generation episode I watched was “Tin Man” and it made me a fan. From that day I was hooked. The diversity of the stories is just so wonderful and I really like that.

I don’t recall ever giving such a gift to someone.

Yes, my sister once gave me a beautiful Enterprise lamp.

Old and new friends.
If you had one whish for mankind, what would that be?
I am a straight forward and practical guy.
I believe in equality for everyone on all levels. That would solve a lot of our problems.
