A sci-fi TV junkie since the first season of the original “Star Trek,” K. Stoddard Hayes finally validated her addiction when she sold her first article to Babylon 5 magazine. Since then, she has written about many genre series, including “Stargate: SG-1,” “Buffy” and “Angel,” “Star Trek” and, of course, “Farscape.” She is also the author of Xena, Warrior Princess: The Complete Illustrated Companion. She recently contributed five articles on classic television series to The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy, including the “Farscape” entry. When not programming her VCR to catch the latest episodes of current TV series, she likes to take her family to the beach or the movies, read comic books and plot to overthrow the male domination of screenwriting.
