#Fact
1One of the many screenwriters to submit a draft for the film Freddy vs. Jason (2003).
2He quit Star Trek after he got frustrated with the way Star Trek: Voyager (1995), on which he started working after the much critically aclaimed Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) ended, was being handled.
3In the pilot episode of the fifth Star Trek series, "Enterprise", a character was named after him. The farmer who shot the Klingon (Klaang) in the beginning of the episode was named Farmer "Moore". This is not only homage to Ron's reputation with klingons, but also his reputation for killing off characters.
4Has a son, Robin Copper Moore, born January 26, 1999.

#Quote
1(In 1997) I have the distinct pleasure of doing exactly what I want to do and get paid for it. It's a joy. I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure on TNG and think of it as a special time in my life, but I'm frankly having more fun doing better work on DS9. So my experiences at Trek have only gotten better over time.
