Therese with the marvelous cast of Jesus Christ Superstar. (I’m the hippie with the white daisies in my hair, 2nd row 3rd from left)
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy the past couple of months as a cast member in a local production of Jesus Christ Superstar. This weekend is the last three shows, and I gotta tell you, this has be a wonderful adventure for me, and it’s a joy to get back into a little acting again! I’m in the ensemble for the piece, and I’m playing everything from a worshiper to a fish merchant to an angel!
Jesus Christ Superstar is the classic rock opera from 1970 penned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It brings to life the last week in the life of Jesus and his conflicts with the priests of the Sanhedrin and his disciple Judas. It’s a powerful musical, with classic songs like I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Gethsemane, King Herod’s Song and, of course, the title number.
Our show has been the happiest hard work I’ve ever done! It’s a joy to see it come together from audition to final piece, and I’ve made many lovely new friends.
If any of you live in the Binghamton, NY area, please come check it out! You can read a review here and get tickets here.
I’ll be back next week with Trek stuff. Thanks for your patience! 🙂 -Therese
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!
I made this earlier this month when I was inspired by the old Rosie the Riveter poster! I hope to make more, but not sure how it would work with other female Trek characters. But Uhura works wonderfully! Enjoy!
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

Well here’s a milestone I never expected; this is my 1000th post! How’d that happen?
I started this blog way back on June 11, 2011, and I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I’d write this much about this ol’ TV show, or about Mr. Nimoy, or just anything else that popped into my head. And I definitely never imagined that anyone would read my little blog, let alone have a following! At the time I had minimal experience with blogs, writing posts for the wonderful Basket of Kisses site, but I just wanted to bring to life the Star Trek Universe from my corner of the world. It’s been a fun and wonderful learning experience. Often rewarding (like helping Celeste Yarnall with her cancer fund), and just knowing I can make some people smile) and sometimes frustrating (Is anyone actually reading my full posts are just looking at the picture in the promo on Facebook?) Sometimes I regret the name I gave this site too, as it tends gets confused with delightful (and very popular) My Star Trek Scrapbook.
And now a request: Nothing would make me happier than hearing from you in regards to what you like here and what you’d like to see? I always love reading comments from you and it inspires me to create more. So please let me know:
- What’s your favorite feature?
- Do you like my Trek toons and posters?
- Is there enough Nimoy? Too much?
- What would you like to see?
- Should I change the name of this blog?
- Also, if you have a piece of TOS memorabilia, TOS production photos, candid photos of Leonard Nimoy, or an old article you’d like to share, please send me a picture of it here at:
I will credit you when it’s published. 🙂
So here’s to the next 1000, and I’ll be back tomorrow with this week’s installment of Fan Art Fridays (aka FArF). I’m especially looking forward to writing posts this year in this special golden anniversary of the original series. I have many things in mind, new videos and categories that I hope you’ll enjoy! Thank you so much for your support through good and bad, and if you know anyone who likes or is just discovering The Original Series, let them know about my little site! Share the geekness! Thanks! Therese ❤
The Author hangs with a few of her pals to celebrate 1000 posts! 😉

I’m going to be taking some time off for a little while. Hours are building up at work, but more importantly, I have a lot of projects to do at home, as well as needing to get sufficient rest and exercise to get myself in better shape. I need to lose @ 12 lbs. by the end of September, and my health is paramount. I’m down four already! 😀 It’s a start.
I don’t get as much traffic in the summer anyway, and that’s the way it should be! I urge you all to get out there and have some fun! Throw a Frisbee, play badminton, bike, hike, swim, and do all the glorious things this season blesses is with. It’s almost 1/2 over!
If you’re missing your Trek fix there’s over 900 posts on this site! Dig around!
And if you look to the left column here, you’ll see a countdown for when I come back!
I wish you a refreshing and restful summer, and I’ll see you in (late) September! Love to all and LLAP
And please don’t forget Celeste’s cancer fund — Wouldn’t it be wonderful if she reached her $50K goal by the time I come back??? Please help it become a reality; you can donate here. ❤
See you in September! – Therese 🙂
