#60 “And the Children Shall Lead”

Hi All!   Now that the Trek Core TOS gallery is back on line — I was able to finish my most recent poster — And the Children Shall Lead.

It wasn’t the greatest of episodes; the producers basically wanted to  recreate the atmosphere of the  the much better Miri, but Melvin Belli? Really??  Creating the poster my first thought was how to portray the little brats darlings and a deceptively angelic approach seemed appropriate.  Note, the backdrop is actually the Friendly Angel’s robe. Meanwhile, Kirk and Sulu are freaking out, Uhura is devastated and Spock just wants to meditate himself out of there!

Separated at Birth? Star Trek Lookalikes

While watching old episodes of Trek, I’ve always thought that Majel Barrett (No. 1, Nurse Christine Chapel) could have been a twin, or at least a sister to the great comic actress Eve Arden(Our Miss Brooks, Mildred Pierce, Grease). Both women had similar speech delivery and mannerisms.  Check out any of Ms. Arden’s movies and you’ll see what I mean. With this in mind, I gathered up a bunch of other celebrity lookalikes in the Star Trek Universe.  Let me know if you can think of any more!

The Daily Scrapbook 7/12/13 –(12/4/1979) The Stardates have been kind to Mr. Sulu

Here’s Today’s Flashback:  From December 4, 1979, a local review of George Takei’s visit to BInghamton at Broome Community College.  Funny when you thing that as promotion tours go, it’s surprising how often we had Trek stars come to our little upstate haven.  Why Bingamton and nearby areas?  My theory is that at the time, it was still an IBM town, and Paramount had a targeted audience with all the computer geeks there!
