Welcome To The Archive for "David Bischoff"!

David F. Bischoff was an American science fiction and television writer.

Bischoff worked on various television series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, where he coauthored the episodes “Tin Man” (with Dennis Putman Bailey) and “First Contact” (with Dennis Russell Bailey and Joe Menosky & Ronald D. Moore and Michael Piller) (not to be confused with the film Star Trek: First Contact). He also wrote the Star Trek tie-in novel Grounded, which spent time on the bestseller list.

Other TV work included Dinosaucers (with Ted Pedersen) produced by DIC Entertainment. His interest in dinosaurs led him to write the second of 24 books in the Time Machine series, Search for Dinosaurs, which is actually about finding Archaeopteryx, the first bird.

In addition to some seventy-five original novels, Bischoff wrote tie-in novels for well-known movies and TV series such as Aliens, Alien Versus Predator, Farscape, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Space Precinct, SeaQuest DSV, and Jonny Quest. He also wrote show-business related nonfiction under a variety of pen names.

In 2000, the Washington Post called him the “greatest living wrestling writer” for his work as “Winchell Dredge” at Wild Rampage Wrestling magazine.
