Star Trek TOS with ‘FaceApp’ (My Gallery of 45 pictures)

Note: Caturday with Spock will be back next week 🙂 In the meantime…

You might have noticed ads or images from the new Facebook App called FaceApp. This App was created a few years ago, but recently got a new boost with images featuring famous TV and movie characters. I bet a lot of you saw these of our TOS pals. The big fun is switching sexes of famous characters or making them old!

Well I couldn’t resist, and I put the app on my phone then played with a WHOLE mess of images from TOS! I gotta say, sometimes it’s astonishing how great some of our friends look here as the opposite sex – especially Bill Shatner, who said of one of his doctored images “I’d do me!” Enjoy!

Let’s start with gender-switching:

I gotta say, Bill has a great face for drag!

“I’d like to see the Manager, please…”
“Okay, so mullets still don’t work in the 23rd century”
“Did ya miss me?”
Oh Doctor Baby Blues!
Adorbs!
Spock already had makeup, so he just needed a wig!
Could Mr. DeSalle be Captain Janeway’s Grandfather?
Of course Jim’s worst nightmare! Bill, you could have pulled it off! (But think the application made the top of his head a little too short!)
Sulu is magnificent!
Just when you thought Chekov couldn’t get any cuter…
And Walter was already wearing extra eye liner in The Way to Eden so yeah, this works!
Holy Cow Scotty! you look like SNL comedienne Cecily Strong!!
Spock makes a great Cher!
Or Agent 99!
Nurse Chapel could be Owen Wilson…
Uhura makes a gorgeous guy!
Nurse Chapel as David Hasslehoff!
Kyle looks a bit dazed.
Kirk is the ultimate Breck girl.

How about some guest stars?

Tyree already had the hair, just needed some extensions!
Meanwhile, Nona becomes even more no-nonsense!
Trelane becomes Louis XIV!
Korob could rival Divine.
Dr Jan Lester.
Dr Sevrin found a way to cover those cauliflower ears!
I’m beginning to wonder if David Hasslehof WAS the template for the ‘male’ face!
Kirk always said that Nancy was a handsome woman…
I think Proconsul Marcus is ready for her Vegas act, or as someone off of Real Houswives
Meanwhile Merrick is ready for Vogue
Apollo looks like my gorgeous niece!
OH NO! OH DONNA!!!

Okay, enough gender-swaps! Another feature is playing with facial hair and aging, and some of the results were quite surprising!

Somehow I couldn’t get enough of the beard application…

Isok was born to wear a beard.
As was Kirk!
Aaand I went a little nuts with Patterns of Force
Yep…
Of Course…
Just one more.

And now some nerdy college professor types…

Jim teaches Advanced Relationships…
Korob is in College Admissions, good luck getting past him.
Spock’s the Sexy Archive Librarian…

Then when we get into Aging, whoa!

So if Kirk and Co. hadn’t got to Miri on time. Poor Kid.
This made me laugh because he reminds me of a family friend!
If Severin lived, he’d make a cool Grandpa!
And most astonishing of all, when I aged the photo of Michael Forest as Apollo, the real Michael Forest in Star Trek Continues episode Pilgrim of Eternity looks almost the same if not better! (He’s wonderful! ❤ )

FaceApp made a pretty good estimate of the real aged Spock too!

Well, I think I freaked you our enough today…One thing is for sure. We are all beautiful in our own way, male, female, young, old, nerdy, cool, and so on. We are more than what makes up our shell. May you find your way as pleasant! Happy Fourth of July, please stay safe and healthy!

Today’s Toon: Evil Spock Facial Fur Fails…

Hey Kids,

Of course the producers of Mirror,Mirror took a while to decide the best evil look for Spock… They eventually decided on a modified Heisenburg; after all, he is the evil!  😉 My first Toon with my new computer, enjoy, Therese 🙂

My Weekly Spock– Nimoy in Marco Polo (1982)

The late 1970’s and 80’s were a prime time on TV for the miniseries. With the success of  Shogun there was a rush of other grand adventures created. Here is Marco Polo from 1982.  An all star cast included Leonard Nimoy as Lord Achmed –  who is sort of good and evil, a bit conniving.  (Well, of course he’s evil, look at that beard!) He did well with a moderate part, although he first comes off as a bit…Shatner-esque?  (A bit breathless with lots of pauses in his speeches) But by the time his character dies we at least get a feeling for some of his personal traits! Nimoy never got the girl in these movies, and was again relegated to a ‘heavy’ – but hey, he got a free trip to China!
