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 xo

And 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!

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! ❤
Nichelle Nichols posted on her Facebook page earlier today — she’s doing much better and thank all of her fans for their good wishes and support! Rock on Nichelle!
And be sure to watch Entertainment Tonight this evening (6/15) for a Nichelle update! 🙂 http://www.etonline.com/news/166183_nichelle_nichols_on_her_recovery_after_suffering_a_ stroke_i_m_feeling_the_best_i_ve_felt_a_long_time/
Much Better News from Nichelle today! 😀 Get your rest, Sweetheart!
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.
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 ❤
