Kenneth Biller

Kenneth P. Biller (born 23 December 1964; age 57) is a long-time writer, producer, and (occasional) director of Star Trek: Voyager episodes. He joined the series as an Executive Story Editor with the first season episode "Parallax".

Beginning with the second season episode, "Dreadnought", Biller became a Co-Producer on the series. He was named Producer by season four and Supervising Producer at the start of season five. He was fired from the show by Rick Berman after season five, to make room for Ronald D. Moore, who joined the writing staff at the beginning of the sixth season. However, Moore's tenure on Voyager turned out short and Biller was brought back after his departure, promoted to Co-Executive Producer.

For the seventh and final season, Biller was made showrunner and an Executive Producer on the series, taking over from Brannon Braga who felt burned out and was busy developing the next spin-off, Star Trek: Enterprise. (The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years)

Biller also co-wrote the Klingon Encounter ride for Star Trek: The Experience with René Echevarria. A call sheet for the Voyager episode "Flesh and Blood", 30 August 2000, the 4th of 8 days, featured a note that Biller and his wife Hope became parents of a baby girl, Sophia Rose, on 29 August 2000 at 7:42 a.m.

Prior to Voyager, Biller was a writer and executive story editor on the popular series Beverly Hills, 90210. During his tenure on this series, Biller, in collaboration with Chris Brancato, penned the episode "Wild Horses", which guest-starred Alice Krige. Biller also co-wrote the 1993 X-Files episode "Eve" and wrote the 1999 television science fiction movie The Last Man on Planet Earth for director Les Landau. The film starred Tamlyn Tomita, Elizabeth Dennehy, Martha Hackett, Nancy Hower, Cliff DeYoung, and Azalea Davila.

After Voyager, Biller became Co-Executive Producer, Writer and Director on the television shows Dark Angel, Smallville, and North Shore. He also executive produced, wrote and directed for the NBC series E-Ring. In 2008, Biller directed an episode of Smallville that featured Voyager regular Robert Picardo.

More recently, Biller executive produced the short-lived series Six Degrees with J.J. Abrams, the director and producer of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. He also was an executive producer on Legend of the Seeker, a syndicated series based on Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth series of novels that ran for two seasons from 2008 to 2010.
