Before the day ends, just to let you all know that today is our friend Celeste Yarnall’s Birthday!

A Treasure Trove of On-Set photos from Amok Time

Came across these on eBay the other day — a dealer had purchased original negatives from a photographer who took on-the-set photos of the Star Trek cast during the filming of Amok Time (among others).  These outtakes are quite a treasure trove! I suspect it was common to have photographers on set to take pictures for publicity, but unlike regular publicity photos, these are not staged, but taken during the actual rehearsals and filming.  I’ll be watching out for more!

A Smidgen of Extra Footage from “The Galileo Seven” (deleted bits)

Any time deleted footage from TOS is found, I’m like a kid on Christmas morning!  There’s only two lines of extra dialogue, but it adds to the drama!

Been a While! How’s Your Summer?

Hey Kids,

Sorry I haven’t posted for a while, but I’ve been working on many projects at home, plus work,  as well as having a great trip to NYC this past weekend! I will be posting more Trek stuff soon and I just wanted to let you know I’m still here!

While in NY, I visited the Modern Museum of Art (MOMA) and if you ever get the chance to see it, it’s wonderful! Here I am with Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World; a painting that has fascinated me since childhood.

Hope you’re having a nice summer, what have you been up to? 🙂
