Wideo Wednesday Part 1 – Rare TOS Footage from The Roddenberry Vault

I can’t stop watching this! So great to see these outtakes and Leonard’s concentration on making Spock just right!  I know what I want for Christmas! I’ll have another fun video coming up soon, so stay tuned!

 

Wideo Wednesday: Building Star Trek

This was a wonderful documentary from The Smithsonian Channel that shares the excitement of restoring the original model of the Starship Enterprise for the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, as well as recreating the original bridge for a Seattle Museum, and engineers attempting to recreate some of the legendary devices of the Original Series (tractor beams, tricorders, etc.)   I got the chills seeing the original ship model here 🙂 Lots of great clips from the original series too!  Enjoy!

 

Wideo Wednesday – Original Star Trek TOS Bloopers

I might have posted these before, but this is a nice, fairly clean and bright copy of the original TOS bloopers that one could only see originally at the early Trek conventions.  Enjoy!

Video — 1979 Star Trek TMP Premiere!

A fair quality video with lots of good stuff here – Gorgeous Leonard Nimoy appears @ 8:00 (and a bit later) — poor Sandra looks terrified through most of this.  Poor woman, I think she never got used to the publicity. (a fan gives Leonard a gift)  Great to see our old friends here — Dig Majel Barret’s ‘spiderweb neckline!  And Sweet De Kelley!

 

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!

Wideo Wednesday: Rare Video of early 1970’s Trek Convention !

Here’s an old gem! Rare (very amateur)  video of an early Trek Convention  taken at the Northglenn Mall in Colorado!  Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan are there, looking Fab! Not quite sure who the dog-faced boy is supposed to be.  Pardon poor audio, cheesy organ music and very poor cinematography, but it’s a fun little trip down memory lane. I wish there was more coverage of it – I will have to investigate!  Were any of you at the early cons? (we’re talking pre-Star Wars here!)

Wideo Wednesday: Planetary Post “Boldly Go!” A Trek Musical!

Actor Robert Picardo, (whom I love) who played the Emergency Holographic Doctor on Star Trek Voyager,  presented his second monthly newsletter for the blog Planetary Society.   In addition to the regular real-space news of the month, Picardo presents a new scientist-produced Star Trek musical “Boldly Go!”.  (Picardo will cameo in it!) I wouldn’t call the music Rogers & Hammerstein worthy, but if looks like fun.  Enjoy!
