Losira sure had a bum deal — when you look past the silliness of how she’d appear and disappear, it’s really a tragic story. I made the title appear to be trying to lift itself up. But at least beauty did survive.
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!
For this (and next) week’s fan art, I’ve found some wonderfully rich portraits of the TOS cast by artist Jason Cheeseman Mayer (jason cm) on DeviantArt. This week we have Sulu and Uhura. I love the poses he chose and how beautiful he makes the eyes. More next week!
This is a marvelous series of Fan Art is by artist Ayumi Lemura on Deviant Art. Kind of like what the whole main crew of the Enterprise in Assignment: Earth again, but this time in the 21st Century! Heck, I want to see this episode! Each character’s ‘cover’ works so well with their personalities. Great Job!
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!
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!
Here’s today’s flashback: From November of 1979, a quick blurb about the Star Trek comic coming soon to our daily newspaper and an ad announcing a visit at my local community college by Mr. Sulu himself, George Takei! (I was a new student at BCC at the time, and my enthusiasm for Trek hadn’t dimmed)
