My Weekly Spock: Seventies Man

I always love seeing Nimoy in his 1970’s mode!  Mister Cool!   Here’s a few from personal appearances.  Of course, the media still wouldn’t let Spock go at this point, as the caption to the last picture dictates “Spock, Where are your ears?” Oy!

I think that’s the Shat-Man in the background.

FArFri: Women of Star Trek by Jason Potratz

Sorry I’m a little late this week — for this week’s Fan Art, here’s three lovely representations of  Nurse Chapel, Lt. Uhura, and Yeoman Rand by artist Jason Potratz.  Nice to see Yeoman Rand, who isn’t often seen in Fan Art, and I also like Uhura’s expression; as if she’s really about to give someone what for!

Wideo Wednesday” Leonard Nimoy in Bonanza Under Attack (1995)

On Monday I featured photos of Leonard in Catlow and Bonanza Under Attack (1995)  I found the video of the Bonanza movie!    So glad he got to do another western at this stage in his career :-).  Enjoy!

My Weekly Spock: Western Wulcan

Seemed like a good time to bring out some Western shots of Leonard in two of his best westerns, Catlow (1971) as bounty hunter Miller, and the NBC movie, Bonanza: Under Attack (1995)  where Leonard played  reformed outlaw Frank James who helps the progeny of the Cartwright family fight an unscrupulous Pinkerton detective.   I’ve seen Catlow, but never the Bonanza one, hope to find it soon.

FArF: Uhura by Pocketuti

In honor of Women’s History Month, I can’t think of a better way to start than with this First Lady of Star Trek — Uhura!  I love this pen work by pocketuti!  Her eyes, the serene smile, perfection! ❤ (and pen is hard to draw with)  The artist does many wonderful face portraits, check her out here.

Wideo Wednesday: Andy Griffith meets Star Trek (MeTV)

I love this promo for The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek for MeTV!  (Unfortunately I don’t get that channel!)

But I can’t quite tell what Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) is saying–Anyone?

Woody, Buzz, and Memorial Oscar Tribute to Leonard

If you stayed up late enough to see the Memorials on this years Oscars, I’m sure you were pleased to see Leonard featured there, and they saved him for last  🙂 .   It was a quiet tribute with David Grohl playing a beautiful acoustic version of “BlackBird”.  They chose one of my favorite pictures of Leonard, too.  You can see the video here.

However, this wasn’t the only  nod to Nimoy in the broadcast; when best animated feature was ‘announced’ by Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, the pre-created animation for the segment had Woody giving the Vulcan Peace Sign as he mocked Buzz. It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but I caught it on freeze-frame!  Nice touch.
