Here’s some great rare shots of Leonard as Spock in a green jumpsuit! I’m guessing he’s in front of his trailer. Most likely during the filming of This Side of Paradise. Who else could make a jumpsuit look this good? Makes me smile!
How the week flies by! Here’s today’s Fan Art — the very clever Sorry Guy’s, Time to Run! by artist Worgue. I like that he included Yeoman Rand along wit Chekov, even though they didn’t work together on TOS. And of course, Spock is Kirk’s first priority! At the time Worgue had created this, he hadn’t seen much of the original series yet; here’s hoping he’ll make more! 🙂
It’s always fun to find promo and behind the scenes pics from TOS! I’d love to have been a fly on the wall for some of these! If you come across any, feel free to send them to me here at email@example.com
Going through some publicity and promo shots — Let’s have a little love for Walter Koenig (Chekov) — the ‘Davy Jones’ of TOS! I love the last one with the fan and fan magazine against the Mission: Impossible backdrop (Both series filmed on the same lot). What a fine young man!
As George Takei’s labor of love Allegiance goes to Broadway this fall, it seemed a great time to remember what good friend George was with Leonard. I found some wonderful pictures, not just from their TOS days, but though ST:IV and in 2012 when Leonard went to see the pre-Broadway version of Allegiance. I’m so glad Leonard got to see his friend George’s wonderful musical, and I hope I’ll see it too! The final picture was taken in 2014. I’m sure George misses his friend. <3
Also note the wonderful picture here on the ST:IV set, where the little boy (Sulu’s great-great-great-great… grandfather in the story) is shyly standing in front of Leonard. Sorry that scene of Sulu and his distant relative was never filmed, but the idea of it was was sweet.
I’ve always been fascinated by the beautiful use of light and color on the Original Series. Those colored gels on what were really just grey walls gave the series a magical, yet cozy feel. For a sci-fi show on a tight budget, it gave the whole series a special nuance of calm; like stained glass windows in a church.
Inspired by this lighting magic, I started playing around with images on Photoshop the other night and created these ‘stained-glass’ images. I kept the faces clear of lines so as not to distract from their beauty.
I bet I’ll do a lot of these! (I’m even giving them their own category).Here’s Spock from Whom Gods Destroy and Uhura from The Tholian Web.
Enjoy the serenity, Therese <3
Have you seen this one? Wonderful Metal renditions of the TOS and Next Generation Themes! By Guitar maestro, Eric Calderone!
I especially like the ripping toward the end — so spacey!
You know, these might just make a pretty funny Pixar movie! From artist Phil Postma. These are really quite brilliant (although I think Spock could have been a bit handsomer) — Kirk definitely has a Mr. Incredible vibe, and McCoy looks like Bob Parr’s nasty boss Gilbert Huph. Uhura and the Green Orion are definitely in the Mirage mode! The Romulan looks so bored, I love these — Hey Pixar, THIS is you’re next movie (after Incredibles 2, of course!) You can find these at Minion Factory. Bravo!
