My Weekly Spock: At the Premiere of ST:TMP

This week marks the 35th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. (and let the franchise begin!)  Here’s a rare shot of Leonard and Bill at the premiere that was held in (interestingly enough) Washington D.C.!  The tuxes really reflect their personalities; Disco Bill is in his ruffles while Suave Leonard in in his traditional, fine tailored threads.  Marcy and Sandy look sweet too!

True, the movie may have not been the best, but I’m glad they had a fun night!

FArF: The Stylish World of Gary Anderson

For this weeks fan art, I found some more wonderful work by Gary Anderson (a.k.a. darkwing75) on DeviantArt.   Gary has created dozens of these stylish images of sci-fi and fantasy characters in his signature fashion plate style. (I’m guessing there’s a template he uses).  Here’s his take on some of the best Star Trek ladies from Earth and Elsewhere.  I especially like Isis from Assignment: Earth.   As I costume-fanatic, all I can say is Mr. Anderson, more please!

“Is There in Truth, No Beauty?”

Here’s my latest — A study in unconventional love. Definitely one of the better third season episodes.  I was careful not to give away her secret, hence the eye reference.   Someday I’m gonna make a Miranda costume!

My Weekly Spock: Skyping with Leonard.

Sadly, but understandably,  Mr. Nimoy doesn’t do conventions in person anymore, but isn’t it nice to know that the Trek technology has caught up with reality and now he Skypes!   Who wouldn’t want to Skype with Grandpa Leonard? Here’s some candids of him at recent events, including a shot of him enjoying his doppelganger (and trekkerscrapbook follower) Paul Spock Vegas Forest! (Hey Paul, want to do an interview? :-) )

Just like the old days, eh? :-D

FArF: Uhura by Christina Zakhozhay

Here’s a gorgeous study of our gal Uhura by Canadian artist Christina Zakhozhay.  She really captured the character’s soul here :-) Enjoy.

Hi Everybody!

Hi All! Hope all my followers in the U.S. had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday!  For all the rest of the world, I hope you take a little moment every day to count all our blessings. So many little things to be thankful for; love of family and friends, a hot meal, and just a few minutes to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

And now that the Christmas Shopping has officially begun, just remember that the greatest gift you can give is your time and friendship.  The best things in life are truly free! <3

Here, have some Turkey!
