A very Happy (if slightly late) Birthday Wish for the marvelous Dorothy C. Fontana (March 25) who penned many of the original Trek episodes that deepened Spock’s history and culture, and made him the beloved Vulcan he became! (Amok Time, Journey to Babel), You can read all about wonderful and inspiring D.C Fontana here. (Thanks Corylea for the reminder!)
Hope you had a great day Dorothy! You are an inspiration to writers (especially women) everywhere! <3
Hey Captain! Our Captain hits 86 today! Happy Birthday Bill! God bless you with another beautiful year and many many more!
BTW, Guess who I got my picture taken with last June at Star Trek: Mission New York? — I was wearing my Dr. Miranda Jones costume and had Bill hold a faux red rose with me, just like in the episode! (Silly me!) He looks perfectly flummoxed here, but it was totally worth it!
I’ll write more about my convention experiences from last year soon; very busy lately with my two jobs and also rehearsing for local production of Jesus Christ Superstar!
Imagine 50 years ago this month, TV Guide printed its first cover article on Star Trek, and although it featured both Bill an Leonard on the cover, the main article centered on that interesting young actor who had to wear those pointy ears… Enjoy this piece on the popular, but humble Mr. Nimoy. <3 (Thanks Bobbie Reno for the scans!)
