  Biography  

 other work
 Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1989)
Tormé joined the writing staff of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987 where he worked as executive story editor throughout its first season and creative consultant throughout its second. During this time he contributed five original stories and one teleplay adaptation. His most enduring contribution was the creation of the fictional detective Dixon Hill; a circa 1930s gumshoe portrayed by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in a recurring series of Holodeck simulations.

Tormé's first solo story was a season one episode entitled "The Big Goodbye". It introduces the "Dixon Hill" series of novels, and sees Picard using the holodeck to create a simulation of one. Along with other members of the Enterprise crew, he enters the holodeck and they assume the roles of fictional characters from the novel. The eponymous character would make two more appearances during the series; in the season two episode "Manhunt" and the season four episode "Clues", before reappearing on the big screen in Star Trek: First Contact; the second film to feature the Next Generation crew.

Other stories credited to Tormé include "Haven", "Conspiracy" and "The Schizoid Man". Tormé was responsible for two further episodes, although his name does not appear in the credits. "The Royale" and "Manhunt" went through such significant rewrites and treatments before being filmed that Tormé insisted he not be credited directly; using the pen names Keith Mills and Terry Devereaux respectively. Ultimately, it was the treatment of his Dixon Hill character in the episode "Manhunt" that was instrumental in Tormé leaving the Next Generation writing staff.

 personal life
His father was noted singer Mel Tormé, and he is a graduate of Beverly Hills High School.
