Editor’s Note: I had scheduled this for this past Saturday (8/25) but for some reason it didn’t come up!! Here you go and NEXT week’s puzzle WILL be on Saturday, September 1st! Sorry about that! -Therese
Here’s this week’s edition of Name That Episode!
But first, last week’s answers:
- Spock’s penetrating gaze in The Omega Glory (well, that was an easy one!)
- Kirk’s face palm in The Immunity Syndrome (I was surprised this was so easy)
- McCoy looking around in The Squire of Gothos (this stumped many of you!)
And now this weeks stills — answers next Saturday!
By the way, as you read this I am at TreKonderga in Ticonderoga, NY! Watch for a post and pictures next week! LLAP All! Therese ❤ \\\///
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! (When I found this old vintage ad, I couldn’t resist! )
They got Kirk’s hair right…
Ever since Star Trek premiered in ’66, the merchandisers have been there to get their cut. Here’s a few examples of some of the more ‘fascinating’ examples of Halloween costumes! The details are hilariously bizarre – characters always wear their likenesses on their uniforms! Lots of bad color choices in both the costumes and art (although the cover likenesses are pretty good. I suspect the actors rarely if ever got and percentage of these, don’t know if they’d want it either! Lots of cheap plastic here; most illogical!
But not the uniform!
Kirk wears pink on his off days; McCoy plays captain, and they both shift their insignias! How about that Yellow Submarine Shuttle?
A real Klingon would probably kill you if he had to wear this! Those masks got smelly after a while.
Original 60s Spock Costume
With extra eye shadow and lipstick for evening wear!
And Spock always wears The Enterprise on his shirt so he can be returned if lost!
Even the Enterprise is yellow!
Hi Everyone! It’s been a couple of crazy weeks for me, for I went through an awful bout of pneumonia! Happy to report that I am well recovered now, and just happy to be back to my normal silly self again!
Tomorrow here in the USA, it’s Thanksgiving. I’m baking some pies today and will make some nice turkey and fixings on Thursday. But in the meantime I thought it would be fun to recall five things about Star Trek TOS that I’m grateful for. Any of your favorites here? Be sure to add yours in the comment section. And for all our friends celebrating, Have a Happy And Safe Thanksgiving! ❤
- #5: Gene Roddenberry’s Vision. Where it all began. In the fertile mind of Gene Roddenberry, the beginnings of a world where Earth lives in peace, harmony, and diversity. A dream we all still strive for and will ever hope to achieve. Maybe someday.
- 4: Dr. McCoy’s Baby Blues
- If ever I was sick in TOS Universe, nothing would calm me better than the warm blue eyes and calm bedside manner of dear ol’ Bones.
- 3: Bill Theiss’s remarkable fashion design
Who knew the future would be so colorful? The glorious designs of William Ware Theiss not only implied a brighter future, but were often just bits of fabric pinned together! Theiss was a genius who inspires many to this day. (Me too; I make doll clothes!)
- 2: Kirk standing up for Humanity.
Kirk was well aware of Humanity’s flaws, but that never let that stop him from defending (and saving) the Human race from total destruction. Kirk has faith in the good of Humanity, and will always fight for it. May we all be examples of best in Humanity; Love, Respect, and Caring. And finally…
- 1: Just Spock, Wonderful Spock.
- Of course, you know I’m a fool for that Vulcan. But Spock so much more than just a cool character. To me, Spock is so much of what Star Trek is about. the outsider trying to fit in. How many of us grew up identifying with Spock because we often felt the misfits in our world? Spock showed us that we could and would manage well if we just stayed true to ourselves, but also be caring and loyal to our family and friends. Every Trek series has an outsider/Spock character in it, but this Vulcan was the first, and probably the most beloved.
“Hello, I’m Spock! I’ll be your entertainment for the evening. May I start with Vulcan love sonnet?” Great promo shot from ’66
