FArFri: Celebrating 50 Artists, 50 years of Star Trek

bkax93kveedubytaa4muHere’s a great piece created by artist Joshua Budich.  It’s part of an upcoming exhibit celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, titled Star Trek 50 Artists, 50 Years  Surprisingly, Spock has the biggest head in the picture (instead of Kirk), and you don’t even see his ears!  This works for me! I feel Spock was Star Trek, or at least a good portion of what if was all about.

This  exhibit features artists from around the world and will be displayed (so far) in Canada, California, Las Vegas the United Kingdom. (Usually as part of conventions)  You can see more info here.

startrek.com is  revealing the pieces bit by bit on their site (what a tease!) You can see more here

My Weekly Spock: Trailer Spock

Here’s some great rare shots of Leonard as Spock in a green jumpsuit! I’m guessing he’s in front of his trailer. Most likely  during the filming of This Side of Paradise. Who else could make a jumpsuit look this good?  Makes me smile!

Trailer for New ‘Trek” on CBS (for 2017)

dont know

I see a brief trailer has been released for the new TV version of Star Trek.  It’s just fancy CGI, dramatic music, exploding planets and asteroids, but at the end we hear the first familiar chords of the classic Trek fanfare.  It promises “New Crews, New Villians, New Heroes, New Worlds”.

Then, for a moment, it gave me a ray of hope, stating:

“Premiering January 2017 on CBS.”

What’s this?  Have The Powers That Be finally decided to air the new Trek for all to see on Broadcast Network TV?        But wait, no…

“And coming to CBS All Access”.

Crap! Apparently the network will only give us one episode and soak us for the rest.  I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of Trek fans being fleeced whenever a new Trek project arises.

There’s a petition on Care2 petitions that demands that CBS make Trek free for all, and I agree.  It’s only a little over halfway to it’s goal of 1000, let’s take it over the top!

In the meantime, let’s hope this one will be true to Gene’s vision.

My Weekly Spock: Father and Son

This week, my oldest son Steve is turning 19!  So proud of him and thankful for my beautiful son!  It got me in mind to post these of Leonard and his son Adam. 🙂

Wideo Wednesday: Nimoy as Sherlock in “The Interior Motive” (1975)

Leonard made this little gem of a scientific educational video for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in 1975 for the series The Universe and I.   The acting’s a bit exaggerated, but it’s all in good fun, as it was used  in closed circuit TV in Kentucky public schools. They were filmed in Kentucky. Fun to see Nimoy in his Sherlock Holmes character, and a good science lesson too!
