Here’s today’s flashback: As I continued to gather any little tidbit I found in magazines related to Trek, there were ads for locally syndicated episodes and in fan magazines, there were often ads for Star Trek posters, like the ones you see here on the bottom of these two pages. On the first page, you see a collage of Kirk, Spock, and I actually owned this poster, in full color. It wasn’t the best Trek collage posted, but it nicely accentuated the Spock poster my brother let me use, and I had Trek all over my bedroom, just like Nurse Chapel in this StarTreKomic I created for this site. You also see Shatner and company’s names here, probably from an ad for an upcoming convention.
Also, there’s new speculation on the status of the return of Star Trek on television. Called Star Trek II, I remember being disheartened when I read this little blurb from TV Guide that mentioned that Leonard Nimoy would NOT be coming back. And he’d be replaced by some “bald lady” who was incredibly “sensuous”? Whaaaa?
Fortunately, Nimoy did come back for the eventual first movie, and Ilea (the late Persis Khambatta) was a very beautiful lady. Too bad the movie itself was such a snore!!!
