"John Doe" and "Jane Doe" are multiple-use names that are used when the true name of a person is unknown or is being intentionally concealed. In the context of law enforcement in the United States, such names are used to refer to a corpse whose identity is unknown or unconfirmed. Secondly, such names are often used to refer to a hypothetical "everyman" in other contexts, in a manner similar to "John Q. Public" or "Joe Public". There are many variants to the above names, including "John Roe", "Richard Roe", "Jane Roe" and "Baby Doe", "Janie Doe" or "Johnny Doe". In other English-speaking countries, unique placeholder names, numbers or codenames have become more used in the context of police investigations; this has included the United Kingdom. However, the legal term John Doe injunction or John Doe order has survived in English law and other legal systems influenced by it. Other names such as "Joe Bloggs" or "John Smith" have sometimes been informally used as placeholders for an everyman in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Well-known legal cases named after placeholders include: the landmark 1973 US Supreme Court decision regarding abortion: Roe v. Wade and. John Hurrell Luscombe v Yates and Mudge 5 B. & Ald. 544, McKeogh v. John Doe and Uber Technologies, Inc. v. Doe I. Use of "John Doe" in the sense of an everyman, includes: the 1941 film Meet John Doe and. Use of "Jane Doe" in the sense of an unidentified corpse, includes: the 2016 film The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Under the legal terminology of Ancient Rome, the names "Numerius Negidius" and "Aulus Agerius" were used in relation to hypothetical defendants and plaintiffs; the name "John Doe", "Richard Roe," along with "John Roe", were invoked in English legal instruments to satisfy technical requirements governing standing and jurisdiction, beginning as early as the reign of England's King Edward III. Though the rationale behind the choice of Doe and Roe are still unknown with many suggested folk etymologies. Other fictitious names for a person involved in litigation in medieval English law were "John Noakes" and "John-a-Stiles".
The Oxford English Dictionary states that John Doe is "the name given to the fictitious lessee of the plaintiff, in the mixed action of ejectment, the fictitious defendant being called Richard Roe". This usage is mocked in the 1834 English song "John Doe and Richard Roe": This particular use became obsolete in the UK in 1852: As is well known, the device of involving real people as notional lessees and ejectors was used to enable freeholders to sue the real ejectors; these were replaced by the fictional characters John Doe and Richard Roe. The medieval remedies were abolished by the Real Property Limitation Act of 1833. Secretary of State for Environment and Rural Affairs v Meier and another and others and another and another. In the UK, usage of "John Doe" survives in the form of John Doe Injunction or John Doe Order.8.02 If an unknown person has possession of the confidential personal information and is threatening to disclose it, a'John Doe' injunction may be sought against that person. The first time this form of injunction was used since 1852 in the United Kingdom was in 2005 when lawyers acting for JK Rowling and her publishers obtained an interim order against an unidentified person who had offered to sell chapters of a stolen copy of an unpublished Harry Potter novel to the media.
Unlike the United States, the name "John Doe" does not appear in the formal name of the case, for example: X & Y v Persons Unknown HRLR 4. Well-known cases of unidentified corpses include "Cali Doe" and "Princess Doe"; the baby victim in a 2001 murder case in Kansas City, was referred to as Precious Doe. In 2009, the New York Times reported the difficulties and unwanted attention experienced by a man named John Doe, suspected of using a pseudonym, he had been questioned by airport security staff. Another man named John Doe was suspected of being an incognito celebrity. In cases where a large number of unidentified individuals are mentioned, numbers may be appended, such as "Doe #2" or "Doe II". Operation Delego, which targeted an international child sexual abuse ring, cited 21 numbered "John Does", as well as other people known by the surnames "Doe", "Roe", "Poe". "John Stiles", "Richard Miles" have been used for the fourth participants in an action. "Mary Major" has been used in some federal cases in the US.
"James Doe" and "Judy Doe" are among other common variants. Less other surnames ending in -oe have been used when more than two unknown or unidentified persons are named in U. S. court proceedings, e.g. Poe v. Snyder, 834 F. Supp.2d 721, whose full style is Jane Poe, John Doe, Richard Roe, Robert Roe, Mark Moe, Larry Loe, Degage Ministries, Mel Trotter Ministries, Plaintiffs, v. Rick Snyder, Governor of the State of Michigan, Bill Schuette, Attorney General of the State of Michigan, Kriste Etue, Director of the Michigan State Police, William Forsyth, Kent County Prosecutor, in their official capacities, Defendants and. 87-3758, unpublished disposition, 850 F.2d 689 (4th Cir
Miles O'Brien (Star Trek)
Miles Edward O'Brien is a character in the fictional Star Trek franchise. He appears sporadically in all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and is a main cast member of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. O'Brien was the transporter chief of the USS Enterprise-D, he was promoted to Chief of Operations of Deep Space Nine. O'Brien is the only major Star Trek character described as both ethnically Irish and born in Ireland. O'Brien is portrayed by actor Colm Meaney. According to Colm Meaney, at first O'Brien "was just there, not established as a character, that went on for a bit." He can be seen as the battle bridge's conn operator in the first TNG episode, "Encounter at Farpoint." Appearing on and off in more TNG episodes, it wasn't until the second season episode "Unnatural Selection" that Meaney's character was named, the second episode of season 4, "Family," before the character was given a first name. However, Meaney came to like the arrangement of being hired on an episode-by-episode basis, was hesitant to sign on as a regular on DS9.
Along with Worf, Miles O'Brien is one of the two characters that moved from TNG to be a main character on DS9. They are reunited in "The Way of the Warrior" and O'Brien meets him as he comes in from the DS9 docking port airlock, he claims descent from the famous Ard Rí, or High King of Ireland. His father, Michael O'Brien, wanted him to play the cello, so he pursued this and was accepted into the Aldebaran Music Academy. However, a few days before he was scheduled to start classes there, he enlisted in Starfleet. O'Brien can be seen playing the cello as part of Data's string quartet early in the TNG episode "The Ensigns of Command". In the DS9 episode "Invasive Procedures", it is revealed; the TNG episode "The Wounded" establishes that O'Brien served as tactical officer aboard the USS Rutledge during the Cardassian War and that he was scarred by the Cardassians' massacre of hundreds of civilians on Setlik III. O'Brien does not remember. In that episode, it is clear that the classic Irish tune "The Minstrel Boy" plays a major part of his journey as a character: an innocent man thrown into the destructive nature of war.
He sings the song in this episode, much in the final episode of DS9 "What You Leave Behind". "The Minstrel Boy" is the first musical theme to be heard in the flashback sequence. In the DS9 episode "Bar Association", O'Brien jokingly claims to be a direct descendant of real-life Irish High King Brian Boru, he speaks more of fictional ancestor Sean Aloysius O'Brien, a major player in one of the first United States workers' unions, who participated in the Coal Strike of 1902 in Pennsylvania and was shot dumped into the Allegheny River. In the episode "Rules of Engagement", it is revealed that during O'Brien's 22 years in Starfleet, he had fought in 235 separate battles and had been decorated by Starfleet on 15 occasions, was considered to be an expert in starship combat. O'Brien's first appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation as the battle bridge flight controller in The Next Generation premiere episode "Encounter at Farpoint", with his only other appearance in the first season being as a security guard in the episode "Lonely Among Us".
Starting with the second season premiere, "The Child", O'Brien began his regular role as the ship's transporter operator, a position, filled by the since-departed Tasha Yar in the first season. In the following episode, "Where Silence Has Lease", when Riker and Worf prepare to beam to the USS Yamato, Riker refers to him as a lieutenant and the character is wearing lieutenant collar pips, he still wears lieutenant pips in "Sarek", but in episodes, the collar symbol has changed and O'Brien is referred to as Chief.. In 2367, he confronted Capt. Benjamin Maxwell, his former commanding officer on the USS Rutledge, when Maxwell attacked Cardassian ships and outposts without authorisation and threatened the peace between the Federation and the Cardassian Union. During the Klingon Civil War, O'Brien is assigned to the bridge as tactical officer due to Worf's resignation from Starfleet and the temporary reassignment of officers to other ships in a fleet led by Capt. Picard. O'Brien marries Keiko Ishikawa aboard the USS Enterprise-D in the TNG episode "Data's Day".
They have a daughter, delivered by Worf in "Disaster". O'Brian appears in over 50 episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation: "Encounter at Farpoint" "Lonely Among Us" "The Child" "Where Silence Has Lease" "Loud As A Whisper" "Unnatural Selection" "A Matter Of Honor" "The Measure Of A Man" "The Dauphin" "Contagion" "The Royale" "Time Squared" "The Icarus Factor" "Pen Pals" "Q Who" "Up The Long Ladder" "Manhunt" "The Emissary" "Shades of Gray" "The Ensigns of Command" "The Bonding" "Booby Trap" "The Enemy" "The Hunted" "A Matter of Perspective" "Tin Man" "Hollow Pursuits" "The Most Toys" "Sarek" "Transfigurations" "The Best of Both Worlds" "Family" "Brothers" "Remember Me" "Legacy"
Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being, to all appearances human, from the planet Gallifrey; the Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by a number of companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes while working to save civilisations and help people in need; the show is a significant part of British popular culture, elsewhere it has gained a cult following. It has influenced generations of British television professionals, many of whom grew up watching the series; the programme ran from 1963 to 1989. There was an unsuccessful attempt to revive regular production in 1996 with a backdoor pilot, in the form of a television film titled Doctor Who; the programme was relaunched in 2005, since has been produced in-house by BBC Wales in Cardiff.
Doctor Who has spawned numerous spin-offs, including comic books, novels, audio dramas, the television series Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, K-9, Class, has been the subject of many parodies and references in popular culture. Thirteen actors have headlined the series as the Doctor; the transition from one actor to another is written into the plot of the show with the concept of regeneration into a new incarnation, a plot device in which a Time Lord "transforms" into a new body when the current one is too badly harmed to heal normally. Each actor's portrayal is unique. Together, they form a single lifetime with a single narrative; the time-travelling feature of the plot means that different incarnations of the Doctor meet. The Doctor is portrayed by Jodie Whittaker, who took on the role after Peter Capaldi's exit in the 2017 Christmas special "Twice Upon a Time". Doctor Who follows the adventures of the title character, a rogue Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who goes by the name "the Doctor".
The Doctor fled Gallifrey in a stolen TARDIS, a time machine that travels by materialising into and dematerialising out of the time vortex. The TARDIS has a vast interior but appears smaller on the outside, is equipped with a "chameleon circuit" intended to make the machine take on the appearance of local objects as a disguise. Across time and space, the Doctor's many incarnations find events that pique their curiosity and try to prevent evil forces from harming innocent people or changing history, using only ingenuity and minimal resources, such as the versatile sonic screwdriver; the Doctor travels alone and brings one or more companions to share these adventures. These companions are humans, owing to the Doctor's fascination with planet Earth, which leads to frequent collaborations with the international military task force UNIT when the Earth is threatened; the Doctor is centuries old and, as a Time Lord, has the ability to regenerate in case of mortal damage to the body, taking on a new appearance and personality.
The Doctor has gained numerous reoccurring enemies during their travels, including the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Master, another renegade Time Lord. Doctor Who first appeared on BBC TV at 17:16:20 GMT on Saturday, 23 November 1963, it was to be each episode 25 minutes of transmission length. Discussions and plans for the programme had been in progress for a year; the head of drama Sydney Newman was responsible for developing the programme, with the first format document for the series being written by Newman along with the head of the script department Donald Wilson and staff writer C. E. Webber. Writer Anthony Coburn, story editor David Whitaker and initial producer Verity Lambert heavily contributed to the development of the series; the programme was intended to appeal to a family audience as an educational programme using time travel as a means to explore scientific ideas and famous moments in history. On 31 July 1963, Whitaker commissioned Terry Nation to write a story under the title The Mutants.
As written, the Daleks and Thals were the victims of an alien neutron bomb attack but Nation dropped the aliens and made the Daleks the aggressors. When the script was presented to Newman and Wilson it was rejected as the programme was not permitted to contain any "bug-eyed monsters". According to producer Verity Lambert. We had a bit of a crisis of confidence. Had we had anything else ready we would have made that." Nation's script became the second Doctor. The serial introduced the eponymous aliens that would become the series' most popular monsters, was responsible for the BBC's first merchandising boom; the BBC drama department's serials division produced the programme for 26 seasons, broadcast on BBC 1. Falling viewing numbers, a decline in the public perception of the show and a less-prominent transmission slot saw production suspended in 1989 by Jonathan Powell, controller of BBC 1. Although it was cancelled with the decision not to commission a planned 27th season, which would have been broadcast in 1990, the BBC affirmed, over several ye
Worf, son of Mogh is a fictional character in the Star Trek franchise. He appears in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and seasons four through seven of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as well as the feature films Star Trek Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis. Worf is the first Klingon main character to appear in Star Trek, has appeared in more Star Trek franchise episodes than any other character, he is portrayed by actor Michael Dorn. Worf was not intended to be a regular character, as Gene Roddenberry wanted to avoid "retreads of characters or races featured prominently in the original Star Trek series". Accordingly, the June 1, 1987 cast portrait did not include Worf. Several "tall, black actors" auditioned for Worf before Michael Dorn came along, walking into the audition in character and not smiling. Not only did the Worf character become a regular on The Next Generation, he was continued on the Deep Space Nine series for several more years and talk of a spin-off Worf show continued into the 2010s.
He made his debut in 1987 in Encounter at Farpoint, last appeared in character in 2002. Dorn as Worf made 282 on screen appearances, the most appearances of any actor in the Star Trek franchise to-date. Worf's family ties are revealed across several hundred episodes and the movies. An important aspect to understanding Worf is that he was adopted by Federation parents, so he has both adoptive and biological family, he has a total of two brothers each with a unique backstory, as well as two adoptive human parents, one son. Important Star Trek episodes for Worf family include "The Bonding", "Sins of the Father", "Family", "Reunion", "Homeward", "You Are Cordially Invited" The House of Mogh was a family of high social and political rank, for a time represented on the Klingon High Council. In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Colonel Worf appears as the legal advocate of Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy after they are accused of killing Chancellor Gorkon of the Klingon High Council.
He was a member of the Klingon delegation at Camp Khitomer. Although not explicitly stated, he was intended to be Worf's grandfather. Worf has a son named Alexander with a half-human half-Klingon woman named K'Ehleyr, a character introduced in "The Emissary", however she is killed in "Reunion", a "sequel" to that episode and part of the Worf story arc, leaving Worf as a single parent. Worf fathers a son with K'Ehleyr, Alexander has to live aboard Enterprise-D when K'Ehleyr is killed. After TNG ends, Worf gets moved to the Deep Space Nine space station where he marries the Trill symbiont Jadzia Dax. On DS9 Worf misses the Enterprise-D "family" that he had bemoaning the cut-rate work ethic and unfriendliness on the wayward outpost; the episode "Sins of the Father" introduces Worf's long lost brother Kurn, an orphan of the House of Mogh. His adoptive parents have Nikolai Rozhenko whom Worf grew up with. Nikolai and Worf interact in "Homeward" where it is revealed that Worf will have a nephew or niece.
In "The Bonding" Worf adopts an orphan boy into the House of Mogh. In the first Star Trek written by famous screen writer Ron Moore, the orphan Jeremy has a has a special Klingon ceremony to be adopted into Worf's family. Since Worf leaves for Martok's house taking Alexander and Kurn is brain wiped, Jeremy would have been left as the last remaining member of House of Mogh. Worf was born in 2340 on Qo'noS as the son of Mogh. Five years his parents moved to the Khitomer colony. Worf's parents were killed during a surprise attack by the Romulans on the Khitomer outpost; the colony's distress call was answered by the Federation starship USS Intrepid. Chief Petty Officer Sergey Rozhenko found Worf in the rubble and took him in after failing to find any living relatives. Rozhenko and his wife Helena raised him on a small farm colony on the planet Gault, a world of about 20,000 inhabitants all of them human. Worf has a human brother, with whom he quarreled, he spent time on Earth in his parents' native city of Minsk recommending it to Miles O'Brien as one of his favorite places on Earth.
Worf did not take the Rozhenkos' last name, preferring to be addressed by the Klingon designation "Worf, son of Mogh". However, his son Alexander Rozhenko, raised by the Rozhenkos after his mother K'Ehleyr died, did use their surname. Although Worf was raised by humans, he considered himself a Klingon at heart and studied the ways of his people; as an adult, his mannerisms and personality, as well as his innate sense of honor, became more Klingon than human. Worf's brother Kurn a year old at the time of the Khitomer attack, had been left behind on the Klingon homeworld Qo'noS by his parents. Lorgh, a friend to House of Mogh, was charged with the care of the younger son expecting Mogh's stay at the Khitomer outpost to be short-term. Lorgh adopted Kurn after the attack, but informed Klingon authorities that he had died with the rest of the family. Kurn was not revealed as being alive. In 2357, Worf entered Starfleet Academy, he graduated in 2361 and was commissioned with the rank of Ensign, becoming the first Klingon officer in Starfleet.
Although Worf took immense pride and a sense of honor from serving in Starfleet, most other Klingons shunned and belittled his choice of vocation. In 2359, he became
