(written from a Production point of view)

This category is for people that worked on Star Trek episodes and films in the function of production associate, also frequently referred to as "production assistant" and on occasion as "production coordinator". The title "visual effects associate" was utilized in modern Star Trek for those staffers, specifically assigned to the visual effects department in a similar function.

Considered an entry level contracted studio position, their responsibilities typically entail activities to free up as much time as possible for their direct superiors for them to spend their time on their specialized jobs, exemplified in industry parlance by the term "gofer", contraction idiom for "go fer this and go fer that".

These production assistants are similar to personal assistants who serve a single person directly as opposed to the production as a whole. Confusingly sometimes, both functions are in everyday parlance often abbreviated to "PA".
