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! 

 

Throwback Thursday – Hair You Go!

Hey Kids,

Sorry I haven’t posted recently, I’m a bit under the weather, but should be better soon.  Recently I came across a dealer (bulltznbracelets) on eBay who sells 8×10″s from the golden aged of TV and Movies.  They have a lot of Star Trek promotional and production stills too! These are all wig test shots from Journey to Babel.  Great to see the work and detail that went into these looks that you’d only see for a moment in the actual episode, it’s a veritable cat’s eye and wiglet fest!   If you peek in the background of these images, you can see these styles in actionhair test

#45 ‘Journey to Babel’

It’s Journey to Babel!   And well, of course a biblical reference would work here! Note Kirk and Thelev ‘falling’ off crumbling tower! The title font and desert backdrop add to the ancient reference too. I had Sarek at the top of the tower for without him, the mission would be a failure.

FArFri: Amanda and Sarek by Tafafa

Another beauty by Tafafa – this time its Amanda and Sarek.  Such regal poise; Sarek looks intense yet gentle in the way he touches Amanda’s hand.  Amanda radiates  pure love.   I’d love to see this in full color!

Speaking of Journey to Babel, be sure to check out my next Trek poster on Tuesday!

My Weekly Spock: Mother and Son

Hey Kids,

Sorry I’m late today with Weekly Spock.  I’m probably not going to post too much this week; my family and I are starting the housekeeping of my Mom’s things.  It will take a while off and on  throughout this year, but it’s good to get started. I know she’s watching over all of us –  🙂

With Mom in mind,  here’s some family time with Spock and Amanda.  I have to say, I was always glad that Jane Wyatt and Mark Lenard were still available to reprise their role in The Voyage Home.   

Here’s some Mother/Child bonding , enjoy.
