My Weekly Spock: Leonard on Charlie Rose 1995

Here’s a WONDERFUL interview with Leonard on Charlie Rose from 1995!  This’ll make you smile! ❤

 

Happy Birthday DC Fontanta! (March 25th)

A very Happy (if slightly late) Birthday Wish for the marvelous Dorothy C. Fontana (March 25) who penned many of the original Trek episodes that deepened Spock’s history and culture, and made him the beloved Vulcan he became!  (Amok Time, Journey to Babel),  You can read all about wonderful and inspiring D.C Fontana here.  (Thanks Corylea for the reminder!)

Hope you had a great day Dorothy! You are an inspiration to writers (especially women) everywhere! ❤

 

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!

My Weekly Spock – As the Snow Flies…

Hi Kids,

As I write this we are at 2+ feet of snow outside my door!  (I live in NYS)  This is a whopper of a storm, so naturally I thought I should feature Spock and company in a snowy backdrop today!  Stay warm my fellow storm-bearers!

Poor Sulu. Apparently in The Enemy Within, The Enterprise forgot it had shuttlecrafts!

Spock kisses the howling wind in All Our Yesterdays.

You know it’s cold when your extremities turn white!

Happy Valentines Day!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while –  I’ve been sick for a couple of weeks but mostly well now!  Wishing you a very  Valen-Trek Day!  ❤

Movie Monsters Mag from the 70’s “The Star Trek Phenomenon”

Just came across this great article from the 1975 magazine
Movie Monsters.  The magazine had printed a scathing, negative letter to the editor about Trek in its issue of Dec. 1974  (You can see that one here). And Trek fans were so incensed they protested mightily.  The magazine responded with this very positive article about the best Trek had to offer as opposed to  Lost In Space among others.  It’s fun to see how the article  addressed the growing popularity of a canceled TV show as it began its resurrection.  I’m sure at this point they never would have thought that Roddenberry’s ‘oddball creation’ would become the rich franchise it is 50 years on!

There are some funny mistakes here too, like incorrectly identifying Michael Ansara (Kang) as Steve Ihnat (Garth) (and they spelled Ihnat wrong with an extra ‘t’) !  Also, why is a space station with no connection to Trek on the front page?
