Bernard Kyer (writer, "Enuma Elis")
Bernard's first real introduction to science fiction began in what would be a life long fascination with the film Jurassic Park. Every aspect of the film intrigued him leading to an interest in film, music, and writing. Bernard studied Viola and Violin as well as teaching himself music composition. Though he expresses himself both as a writer of stories and of music, his main focus has been on film scores. Star Wars, Star Trek: Voyager, and Battlestar Galactica have all been of great interest along with his favourite writer, Michael Crichton. His favourite films include A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Star Wars: Episode I, Twister, Jurassic Park, and Gone With the Wind. His favourite television shows are Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined), CAPRICA, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: The Next Generation, X-Files, and all cartoons. He is also Beginning of Line's resident composer.
D. Shipway (writer, "Assassin Nation")
_D Shipway is composed of 70% water. The rest is a mixture of film snobbery and TV nerditude, but mostly #GeekDadPride. He hasn’t been writing enough on FLIMgeeks.com for a very long time (eons in Internets years) and is working on the next stack of papers he calls a novel. He resides in Canada with his wife and twin sons (‘The Monsters’) when not vacationing in intergalactic, pan-dimensional, modal realities.

Radak (artist, "Enuma Elis")
Radak is a 27-year-old fan artist from Russia. In addition to Caprica, she loves BSG, Babylon 5, and Star Trek: Voyager. Radak has a huge amount of fan art for a wide variety of shows over at her LJ, which you should definitely check out.
Dóra Kecskés (artist, Capri-Tours ad)
Dora is a 21-year-old Caprica fan from Szeged, Hungary.
Yes, that is her shoe. :) Pretty much describes who she is, as she loves discovering the footprints of others who went before her as well as leaving her own on the long road.
Her first sci-fi memory is a quartet of names: John
Sheridan - Delenn - Kosh - Londo. That was pretty much what she remembered about Babylon 5. It took her over a decade to rediscover the series, with RDM's Battlestar Galactica soon
following. I also like Star Trek (particularly TNG) and Star Wars. Concerning the latter, she was involved in writing a story with friends a couple of years ago, the thing that ultimately set her on her path, making her interested in writing - both
for entertainment and to become speech-writer.
She's an avid fan of self-expression. She enjoys reading, writing, and listening to music. She can play the piano but her life-long dream has to do with learning how to play the guitar
(still on her "to do" list!). Among her favorite artists - there's a lot so she won't bother listing them all because it would
sound eerily like an Oscar-speech - you can find people from all over the world: Henning Mankell, J.R.R. Tolkien, JK Rowling, Bear McCreary, John Williams, Yo-Yo Ma, Bujdosó-Vajdovich-Németh trio, Bjørn Berge, Åge Aleksandersen, Gunnar Pedersen...
Otherwise she is studying political science in her hometown's university --- with a semester spent abroad at the University of Tromsø in the northern part of Norway. For pictures, see the Capri-Tours / Picon ad and you'll kind of get an idea of why she wants to go back there – and NOT just as a tourist!
