Star Trek fan from Salford gets dream job as trekologist

Help

A Salford Star Trek fan has landed his dream job as a trekologist for a TV channel.

Raules Davies has been employed by CBS Action to present facts about the science fiction series ahead of screenings of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Mr Davies told the BBC's Abbie Jones that "the word elated doesn't really quite cover it".

He was spotted by the channel while attending a fan convention in his Star Trek uniform.

Producer Andy Kidger said Mr Davies was "charismatic" and had an "encyclopaedic knowledge" of the show.
