    I give constructive criticism that helps, not hurts.   I can walk you through the parts you're having problems with, giving examples and such.  I'm patient, and quick-responding.  Honest, but not brutal.  I have great knowledge of the Voyager universe, as far as the characters and aliens go.  Technobabble is sadly past me, but I have good references for that.
    I'm good with any length story, as long as you don't give me 30 parts at once.  I can also recognize plot holes and bad characterization.  I'm also friendly, so get to emailing me already!

    Um, well, I beta a lot.  Um, and I beta for lots of people that you mighta heard of, like Paradox, Kat Hughes (bishclone), Seema (well, sometimes), and some others.  I have a lot of time on my hands, too, because I live in a hick country at the bottom of the world, so BRING IT ON! :P  I'm good with characterisation and techonobabble (I can tell you exactly how the transporter works if you want), plot holes, stuff like that.  I'll do pretty much any length, though don't expect me to do it all straight away.  If it's already been edited a little I've been known to do a 300K story in a couple of hours.  Send it on, I'll be nice.

Comments:
    Prefer het pairings outside J/C or P/T but will do those also.  Multiple het partners are okay.
    Not squeamish (actually like death stories), but will question the torturing of a character simply for the sake of torture.  Will read most types of erotica, except Scat.
    Most familiar with Voyager, but can check writing mechanics (spelling, grammar, etc.) for other series.

    While I've never officially "beta-read" before, I have helped friends with stories, assignments, etc, and it is something that I enjoy.
    I'll read just about anything, but if there is sex, I do appreciate a plot in there too, somewhere!  And poetry...while I enjoy reading it, I'm not too much help with it.  You don't want me near your poetry! ;-)

    Proofing, grammar, and punctuation are my strengths.  I prefer R and NC-17, and I love intricate plots.  Long-term mult relationships are a favorite of mine.  Het is okay as long as it's not the main focus.  Janeway is my favorite, but I also like fics that show her as not-so-nice or outright mean.  I know Highlander well, so I'll work with that crossover.

    I like (and will beta-read) any kind of ST parody/humour etc. This can range from the harmless, friendly kind of teasing of Wesley Crusher (aka, the Wuss) to severe applications of slapstick humour.  I look for consistency/continuity in the story also, from plot and characterization to grammar, spelling and general writing inconsistenties.  I'll also look at style (ie. where the writing style used is as important to the narrative as the plot.)
    I'd prefer to accept shorter length stories (1000 lines or less) than novellas.  No preference for character pairings; I'm not not particularly interested in a story where the point is the pairing over the story, but I won't hold that against the story or refuse it on that basis.  I will not deal in any kind of porn/sexual/rape situations or outright violent or sado-masochistic stuff (I know, some of my stuff is borderline; I like to hope that it still falls under slapstick.)

    I know about Star Trek, Voyager in particular, and I can usually find out what I don't know--I've answered questions for others before on continuity, character history, "the history of the future", technobabble, etc.  I know people who know people who have websites explaining this stuff!

    Iím a grammarphile, and I love editing.  Iíve got a good handle on the VOY characters (especially Janeway, Seven, and BíElanna), so I know what makes sense for each of them and what doesnít.  I prefer stories strong on character development/interaction (rather than technobabble/action).  Iím a thorough reader, and Iíll make a lot of comments.  Iíll read and return stories in a timely manner.

    I have already beta-read a long VOY P/T story for Fanfic Chick (Ashes to Ashes) and my specialties are definitely in the proof-reading area, but I do read a lot of fanfic, and watch VOY religiously, so characterisation and plot are also strengths.
    Australian/UK/NZ English is what I write in, but I am very familiar with American English spellings, and can edit, no problem, in that. :-)

    When I beta for you, I'll read through the story twice (to catch mistakes I may have missed the first read).  I'll make sure that the plot flows smoothly and the main characters act consistently.  I'll also reformat if necessary.

    A Star Trek fan for 28 years, I like all the shows, but I'm most familiar with TOS and TNG.  Not as familiar with characters/plot lines of other series but still willing to beta them.
    I write both professionally (in the scientific community) and recreationally (as a fan fiction writer).

    I enjoy both reading/writing X-Files/Voyager fanfiction.  I must warn that though I provide constructive criticism I am always very honest, sometimes brutally so (however much those two concepts may contradict!)  I edit for grammar, spelling, flow, dialogue, etc. (Continuity not so much--I believe fanfic is all about creativity, and that often demands bending the rules a little bit. :)
    I read all pairings, as well as stories without any romantic element to them.  However, I don't read smut, and though you can still send me your story if it has certain NC-17 parts to it, chances are I'll skip right over them.
