My Weekly Spock-Behind the Scenes

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 trekkerscrapbook@gmail.comtumblr_nxybynZMVU1qz5q5oo1_1280

A Little Chekov Love

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! keonig_chekov01

#72 – The Mark of Gideon

Another episode whose plot was so silly that I couldn’t take this poster too seriously!   I found Odona and her father especially grating!   At least Spock had some good scenes.  Only 7 more episodes in this series!

My Weekly Spock: Leonard and George

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.  ❤

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.

FArF: Stained Glass Trek (by Me!)

Hey Kids,

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 ❤

Metal Trek!

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!

Bravo, Sir!

#70 ‘Let That Be Your Last Battlefield’

Unfortunately, too many cooks can’t save these cookies from burning. A sweet and mildly humorous take on a sad episode.  And modern chefs dress like Starfleet officers–Who Knew?

(Nine posters left to go!)

FArF: Star Trek ala Pixar! by Phil Postma

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!

#68 ‘Wink of an Eye’

Here’s my latest!  The Scalosians certainly were pests, weren’t they?  I cheated here and used the Spock image from another episode (who can guess?) but it worked so well here! Note that I also slightly blurred the Scalosians — but not poor Compton!  Enjoy! -Therese

#66 The Day of the Dove

I admit, growing up this wasn’t one of my favorite episodes, but watching it now, it has a delicious darkness about it.  Michael Ansara’s Kang is a sympathetic Klingon, and ever so cool.   I still think the end is kind of goofy, but in reality, wouldn’t it be nice if we could laugh away all our war and destruction?   Here’s to the pursuit of Peace.
