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!

Nichelle Just Got Tribbled!

I LOVE this picture that Nichelle Nichols posted recently!  Maybe this is the Tribble version of The Tonight Show’s ‘Pup Quiz’ except when you get the answer right you get a Tribble!  I hope I can meet her someday — I did see her at the Star Trek Bi-Centennial 10 Convention in 1976, but of course I was out of film by then!!!  Love you Girl! That looks like a designer leopard tribble! ❤

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!)

From Nichelle’s Facebook page:

Update #2 10:15am June 5, 2016

The MRI showed that Nichelle Nichols had a MINOR stroke. She will start therapy this morning to evaluate how much damage was done, and try to determine her chances for a full or partial recovery. The therapists will test her hand at writing and legs to see if she can stand and walk on her own. Last night Nichelle remained alert, and cheerful.

When we told her about the love and support coming in from around the world she smiled and asked to see the posts on her facebook.

Thank you again for all of your kind words. Keep them coming because Nichelle is reading them.

Feel free to post your pictures with Nichelle and a story about when you met her.

FArF: Stained Glass Trek (by Me!)

Hey Kids,

I’ve always been fascinated by the beautiful use of light and color on the Original Series.  Those colored gels on what were really just grey walls gave the series a magical, yet cozy feel.  For a sci-fi show on a tight budget, it gave the whole series a special nuance of calm; like stained glass windows in a church.

Inspired by this lighting magic, I started playing around with images on Photoshop the other night and created these ‘stained-glass’ images. I kept the faces clear of lines so as not to distract from their beauty.

I bet I’ll do a lot of these! (I’m even giving them their own category).Here’s Spock from Whom Gods Destroy and Uhura from The Tholian Web.

Enjoy the serenity, Therese ❤

Our love and prayers are with you Nichelle.

UPDATE: As of 6:25 PM EST: “Nichelle Nichols has had both a CAT scan and an MRI today. The CAT scan came back negative and we are awaiting the results from the MRI. Currently she is awake, eating, in good spirits and able to have full conversations. Her right side has shown minor signs or mobility loss but she is not showing any signs of paralyses. “

FArF: Uhura by Christina Zakhozhay

Here’s a gorgeous study of our gal Uhura by Canadian artist Christina Zakhozhay.  She really captured the character’s soul here 🙂 Enjoy.

#43 The Trouble with Tribbles

I’ve been grinding out a bunch of these Trek movie posters lately!  For the next few weeks you’ll see new ones every Tuesday and Thursday!  I made a variation of Kirk in the Tribbles here; his body from one scene and his head from the moment he says “WHERE?” to Scotty. Also it seemed only right to throw Koloth into the mix.

Enjoy, and let me know how you like them!   I’m up to # 50 now!
