Even though he is not a household name, director Allan Kroeker is well known within the science fiction community, having worked on a number of shows including three different "Star Trek" series. Kroeker didn't immediately start out solely as a director. Along with calling on-set action, his introduction to the filmmaking industry was as an editor, writer, and cinematographer on independent projects like 1979's "Tudor King" and 1982's "The Pedlar." By the time Kroeker received a Gemini-nominated Best Director nod for the 1985 Canadian drama, "Tramp at the Door," writing was his only other dramatic duty aside from giving direction. Once he had been tapped to direct episodes of the Canadian sci-fi series, "PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal," it wasn't long before the Manitoba native was getting hired to work more within that genre. Kroeker's biggest opportunity came after he got pulled into directing different parts of the "Star Trek" franchise, starting with a 1996 episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." He would later not only direct the series finale for "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," but those of "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Star Trek: Enterprise." While Kroeker has been hired to direct episodes of the Fox forensic crime drama "Bones" and the action dramedy "Chuck," he's continued working on other science fiction series including the Syfy Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" and James Cameron's "Dark Angel."
