Timothy Wyckoff Lynch (born February 7, 1970) is one of the earliest Internet television critics (posting reviews to Usenet as early as 1988), mostly reviewing Star Trek series (including the movies and some books). He attended Cornell University and the California Institute of Technology. He currently teaches physics and astronomy classes at Montclair Kimberley Academy in Montclair, New Jersey.
He is known both for his reviews, especially those of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and for "giving up" on Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise due to perceived lack of quality. In total, he has contributed more than 450 episode reviews and season wrap ups for the various shows.
In addition to his online work, Lynch was also a regular book reviewer for the British magazine TV Zone, from 1998 to 2003. He also wrote the foreword to the book Net Trek by Michael Wolff and was a writer for the trivia video game Star Trek: The Game Show, released by Sound Source Interactive.
