My Weekly Spock: Siblings!

This past Monday (4/10) was National Siblings Day, so what better time to remember wee Leonard and his big brother Melvin?

 

 

 

 

Not to mention those two men who loved him like a brother; Bill Shatner and DeForest Kelley ❤

Happy 86th Birthday Bill Shatner!

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!

Steady As She Goes! Shatner, Koenig, and Takei on the Bridge Again!

This is all kinds of wonderful.  Just a few days ago at the the Destination: Star Trek Convention in Birmingham, England, the stars the many Trek incarnations as well as special guests posed on a lovely recreation of the Enterprise bridge! But most importantly, Captain Kirk, Mr. Chekov and Mr. Sulu were back at their stations!

This picture got me a little emotional!  Seeing William Shatner, Walter Koenig and George Takei sitting so fine just made my heart swell (and break just a little)!  Unfortunately, Nichelle Nichols couldn’t make it, but I’m sure she was there in spirit.  And as beautiful as this is, it made me miss the crew now watching from above: Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, Majel Barrett, and Grace Lee Whitney  ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Fortunately, the legendary three here had plenty of support in their Trek family.  Most notable is Leonard’s son,  Adam Nimoy, standing in for his beloved father.  As much as I wish that Leonard was still here, I’m so thankful that Adam was there for him.

I also LOVE that George Takei wore a black shirt with a bright yellow sweater, mimicking his original uniform, and look how proudly his sits back at his helm! Steady as she goes!

Now enjoy this moment of Star Trek Awesomeness!

Happy 50th Star Trek! (My Tribute Poster!)

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 xo50

 

My Weekly Spock: That First Trek:TMP Press Conference (1978) (Gallery)

136740475And the band got back together! As the latest Trek movie was released the other week, I thought it would be fun to look back on the first press conference for the movie that started the series way back in March of 1978.  Here’s Leonard and company looking splendid on that happy day.  He looks so genuinely thrilled at this impromptu nearly-10 year reunion! Love that velvet blazer! Bless them All!

Video — 1979 Star Trek TMP Premiere!

A fair quality video with lots of good stuff here – Gorgeous Leonard Nimoy appears @ 8:00 (and a bit later) — poor Sandra looks terrified through most of this.  Poor woman, I think she never got used to the publicity. (a fan gives Leonard a gift)  Great to see our old friends here — Dig Majel Barret’s ‘spiderweb neckline!  And Sweet De Kelley!

 

Happy 85th Birthday William Shatner!

Happy Birthday Bill! Have Fun and LLAP! – I’d scream if I was 85 too!              Love, Therese  🙂

Happy 85 Bill
