53 TOS Images for Star Trek’s 53rd Anniversary!

Yesterday, September 8th was the 53rd Anniversary of Star Trek, and aren’t we lucky to have had this happyplace in our lives? Wishing Happy Anniversary to the surviving cast of The Original Series, William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Walter Koenig, and happy memories of our beloved other cast members, Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, Majel Barret, Grace Lee Whitney, and of course the creator, Gene Roddenberry. The dream of a better future lives on with Star Trek in all of it’s incarnations! May its vision of a peaceful and caring society truly live long and prosper!

One thing I loved about the original series is that even though not all characters had equal time, there were countless little moments where we’d see the human (or otherwise) nature of characters that would give us a peek into their personalities. Little quirks anyone could understand. In honor of 53 years of Star Trek, here are 53 moments of my favorite TOS episodes, 🙂

Also, more coverage of my visit to TreKonderoga in August coming this week!

Happy 86th Birthday Bill Shatner!

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!

#62 “Is There in Truth, No Beauty?”

Here’s my latest — A study in unconventional love. Definitely one of the better third season episodes.  I was careful not to give away her secret, hence the eye reference.   Someday I’m gonna make a Miranda costume!

Spock is thinking “I am the logical choice.”

Poor Larry is sweating ” I LOVE YOU, MIRANDA!”

Sulu is just “Uh, Why am I here?”

And Ambassador Kollos knows he has it in the bag!
