Here’s today’s flashback: From March of 1978, the official confirmation article form the beloved Starlog Magazine (the ultimate geek periodical of the time giving us the final rundown of the press conference for the upcoming Star Trek: The Motion Picture. (that was an awful title, wasn’t it? They should have called it V’Ger Unleashed or something else!) Anyway, Nimoy explains here that his long awaited casting as Spock was delayed because the communication “between Paramount and Vulcan was very slow” 😉 , and Shatner, when asked it if will be hard to recreate Kirk after 9 years, paraphrases the great Spencer Tracy* “You take a deep breath and say the words.”
Trekkies could always rely on Starlog to bring them the latest news. This piece was written by Susan Sackett, a writer and associate to Gene Roddenberry well known to Trek fans (I think I have a letter from her someplace).
*Shatner was blessed to work with Spencer Tracy in Judgment at Nuremburg

4/18/13 — I was viewing costumes on a website that shows where the costume was first seen and then also lists other shows & Actors/Actresses who have worn the same costume in other movies or TV shows and happened upon the Mudd’s Women pic and click on your trekkerscrapbook.com link — this is great – I love all the old pics – I have been a fan of the show since High School – the years the show originally was shown…….. and still am. It’s a joy to meet other ST fans – I have loved all the series and most of the movies….. and I still watch the re-runs too. Thanks for the great memories and all your pics and scrapbook pages – I scrapbook also and did most of my scrapbooking with pics from the Star Trek Communicator magazine while it was still being published. Later! P.S. Are you on facebook? Please let me know. Thanks!
Hello Catherine! Yes, I’m on Facebook and you can link here:
Also, have you seen this post I wrote about costume recycling:
Enjoy — and what was that other site? I think I’ve seen it before too, but I can’t find it in my bookmarks. Thanks! And Thanks for reading and enjoying by Trek blog!
My little boy is 3 and he’s going to be a scarecrow…I’m
just dressing him in overalls, a flannel shirt, and a straw hat we already have
and putting some make-up on him.
