Steady As She Goes! Shatner, Koenig, and Takei on the Bridge Again!

This is all kinds of wonderful.  Just a few days ago at the the Destination: Star Trek Convention in Birmingham, England, the stars the many Trek incarnations as well as special guests posed on a lovely recreation of the Enterprise bridge! But most importantly, Captain Kirk, Mr. Chekov and Mr. Sulu were back at their stations!

This picture got me a little emotional!  Seeing William Shatner, Walter Koenig and George Takei sitting so fine just made my heart swell (and break just a little)!  Unfortunately, Nichelle Nichols couldn’t make it, but I’m sure she was there in spirit.  And as beautiful as this is, it made me miss the crew now watching from above: Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, Majel Barrett, and Grace Lee Whitney  ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Fortunately, the legendary three here had plenty of support in their Trek family.  Most notable is Leonard’s son,  Adam Nimoy, standing in for his beloved father.  As much as I wish that Leonard was still here, I’m so thankful that Adam was there for him.

I also LOVE that George Takei wore a black shirt with a bright yellow sweater, mimicking his original uniform, and look how proudly his sits back at his helm! Steady as she goes!

Now enjoy this moment of Star Trek Awesomeness!

Happy 50th Star Trek! (My Tribute Poster!)

Sorry this is a day late, but it is no less sincere!  It took longer than I imagined,   probably from colorizing the uniforms!)   For this celebration, everyone’s a captain! And special halos for our beloveds watching from above ❤

What a dull world it would have been without Star Trek.  Aren’t we lucky? Thanks to all who made and make this dream come true, and may the message of Trek’s human harmony Live Long and Prosper!  Love, Therese xo50

 

My Weekly Spock: That First Trek:TMP Press Conference (1978) (Gallery)

136740475And the band got back together! As the latest Trek movie was released the other week, I thought it would be fun to look back on the first press conference for the movie that started the series way back in March of 1978.  Here’s Leonard and company looking splendid on that happy day.  He looks so genuinely thrilled at this impromptu nearly-10 year reunion! Love that velvet blazer! Bless them All!

My Weekly Spock: Convention Time!

 I found some pictures taken at a Trek convention in the early 70’s – (1973 or ’74?) Good old days! (And the blue Denim suit that keeps on giving!)

My Weekly Spock: Leonard and George

As George Takei’s labor of love Allegiance goes to Broadway this fall, it seemed a great time to remember  what good friend George was with Leonard. I found some wonderful pictures, not just from their TOS days, but though ST:IV and in 2012 when Leonard went to see the pre-Broadway version of Allegiance.  I’m so glad Leonard got to see his friend George’s wonderful musical, and I hope I’ll see it too!  The final picture was taken in 2014.  I’m sure George misses his friend.  ❤

Also note the wonderful picture here on the ST:IV set, where the little boy (Sulu’s great-great-great-great… grandfather in the story) is shyly standing in front of Leonard.    Sorry that scene of Sulu and his distant relative was never filmed, but the idea of it was was sweet.
