Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Although he failed to finish a novel before his 21st birthday, as he had hoped to do, future screenwriter and producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe soon found that writing for television suited him a lot better. He attended UCLA, where he earned a Master's in screenwriting, and took second place at the Goldwyn Awards for his first completed screenplay, entitled "Paper Dragons." Wolfe used the prize money to buy his first computer, with the intention of writing his way into a career in television. His big break came in 1992 when he sold a script to the science fiction series "Star Trek: The Next Generation." That script, entitled "A Fistful of Datas," secured Wolfe a spot on the writing staff of the spin-off series "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." Wolfe would go on to write or co-write over 30 episodes of the show throughout its entire seven-season run. His next great success came in 2000, when he developed the science fiction series "Andromeda." Wolfe left the show in 2001 due to creative differences, and has since written scripts for science fiction/fantasy shows "The Dresden Files "and "The 4400."
