(written from a Production point of view)
I am a Star Trek fan from early age on. My prior interest are all the "unknown faces" in the Star Trek productions, including the background performers, stand-ins, stunt performers, day players, body doubles, bit players, under 5's, production staff members, and and and...
My aim is to identify them and tell the community who they are. In the last years I have had help from so many Star Trek stars, who provided me with information, background stories, call sheet information, pictures, links, and contacts. Without their help most of these information probably would never reach the fans.
I would like to thank for their patience, time, contributions, and help : Spice Williams-Crosby, Dennis Madalone, Linda L.C. Madalone, Mark Chadwick, Scott Leva, Lauro Chartrand, Joe Murphy, Chuck Borden, Thom Williams, Steve Rizzo, Dyanna Lynn, John Alden, Glenn Goldstein, Shawn Crowder, Brian Demonbreun, Cathy DeBuono, Tyana Parr, Marti Matulis, Jim Wilkey, Tom Morga, Leslie Hoffman, Christopher Doyle, Lena Banks, Randall Bosley, Loretta Gordon, Bill Blair, Carl David Burks, Vince Deadrick, Jr., Paige Brooks, Fernando Chien, J. Suzanne Rampe, Carey Scott, Jon Braver, Shepard Ross, Uriah Carr, Dennis Tracy, Pam Blackwell, Macarena Lovemore, Cynthia Uhrich, Sue Henley & Keith Rayve, Larry Barnhart, Melissa Vinicor, Lisa Vanasco, Patricia Tallman, Guy Vardaman, and Ian Spelling

I'm proud of... Edit
...this article. Katja Rieckermann was born in Lübeck, my hometown.
Katja Rieckermann (born 24 February 1966; age 49) is a professional saxophone player who appeared as a wedding band member in Star Trek Nemesis. She received no on-screen credit for her appearence and was identified by the name tag of her costume which was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay, where she was misspelled as "Katja Rieckereon".
Rieckermann was born in Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, in Germany. In her early years she felt in love with the jazz music and saw her brother Ralph Rieckermann, guitarist for the german group "The Scorpions", playing the guitar at home. At the age of sixteen she saw saxophonist David Sanborn on a concert and knew the saxophone is her instrument. Rieckermann studied a year in France, alto saxophone at the Yamaha Music School in Hamburg, and at the Berkelee College of Music in Germany before she moved to Los Angeles and expanded her expierences.
After appearances with "The Scorpions" in 1997 and the canadian band "Saga", she also performed with Branscombe Richmond and his Renegade posse on his tour in 2000/2001 and occasionally with actors Jeff Goldblum and Peter Weller since 1999. After a recurring appearance as a musician in several episodes of David E. Kelley's television series Ally McBeal (2000-2001) she met Carmine Rojas, the musical director for Rod Stewart and got the part as saxophonist for Stewart. Since 2001 she is the saxophonist for Rod Stewart on his concerts, tours, world tours, and television appearances such as in the talk show Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She has also shown her skills on several DVD's and music albums and has released her first solo album in 2007, titled "Katja Rieckermann". Currently she is on tour through Europe with Rod Stewart.
