Character from Star Trek played by Eric Menyuk. Humanoid from the distant planet Tai Alpha C.

The Traveler possesses the ability to manipulate a previously unsuspected relationship between space, time and thought, serving as a lens, focusing the energies of thought in himself and others.

Those energies could be translated into reality, although 24th-century science has yet to grasp there principles.

Ah ha! That white thing parked outside the house is now named 'Traveler'. (In the process of coming to terms with the fact I now have a car again, and THIS IS STILL NOT MY HOUSE!)

For those of you who are not familiar with the expression 'Traveler', they are a widely spread band or even mafia of Irish that cover an area the size of,I don't know, the world? There have been reports of them in Europe, of course, North America, South America, and Australia. Okay, not quite the world. Their endeavors include extortion, racketeering, money laundering, and damn near anything else you can think of. Where does the money go? To their families and to aid 'the cause' in Ulster. I'm not here to judge, just to state some facts.
