He began as a Star Trek fan consultant for Viacom Consumer Products, providing feedback and guidance for Star Trek computer game developers on various aspects of canon. Within a year, Lane had branched out to work with licensees across a wide range of Star Trek-related products, including trading cards, museum exhibits, and even Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. Lane wrote the first menu for Quark's Bar and Restaurant at the Las Vegas Hilton. Years later, Lane provided the 2D graphic LCARS animations for Borg Invasion 4D, an attraction at Star Trek: The Experience created by Threshold in Los Angeles.
Most recently, Lane has worked as a consultant with Roddenberry Productions developing Star Trek-related products. He and Adam "Mojo" Lebowitz were responsible for developing the first set of 3D lenticular starship animation prints that are currently being sold at Roddenberry.com.
Lane served as the Chief of Communications for Starfleet, the International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. from 2008 through 2010, publishing over a dozen issues of their newsletter, Starfleet Communique.
