...or being Kirks girl friend.
--- Good point Steve212000. This magazine does have a list of 10 very good-looking ladies ( and photos ). The girls are from the Star Trek movies and all of the TV series as well. There is a picture of Kirk with the one and only Joan Collins ( from The City on the Edge of Forever ).
Thanks for the photo Steve212000.
Calgary Alberta had their Stampede Parade today and Captain Kirk was the parade marshal ( yep a Bill Shatner sighting lol ).
Thanks for the post Steve212000.
Getting back to the young ladies in TOS Kirk was not the only one to find romace among the stars. In " The Cloud Minders " episode a very cute young lady ( played by Diana Ewing ) is quite interested in Mister Spock. This is the episode that takes place in the city that is way up in the clouds.
Thanks for the photo Steve212000. That is an episode that I like very much, mind you I liked most of the shows from TOS.
Thanks for the post Steve21200. That is quite a unusual item, a rotating Mister Spock cube, very nice.
Well we seem to have lost the guy who was leaving a lot of photos here. All of his posts were removed so he must have been a rather bad actor.
On the good news side I just obtained a copy of a " CBS Watch " special magazine on the first Star Trek series. This publication includes a number of older black & white photos from the early days of Star Trek productions.
Yes, steve21200 closed his account.
Thanks for the info CaptainPike, yes all of his posts are gone too so I guess that he is not coming back.
Well here we are on Feb 27th of 2015 and we have lost our own " Dear Mister Spock " with the passing of Leonard Nimoy at age 83. When I signed onto Chess.com just a few minutes at 5:15 PM local time I was glad to see that several people had started threads to mark this sad event. I guess that I can just add one item for any Star Trek fans that may visit here " Live Long And Prosper ! "
There is a cute little item in the Dec 8th - 21st ( of 2014 ) issue of TV Guide that I wanted to mention as it involved Leonard Nimoy. It was in their flash-back section and is entitled: " Mr Spock Tangles With a Hooker ". It goes back to Dec of 1982 when William Shatner was doing the TJ Hooker TV series and Nimoy did a guest apperance on that Show.
I just happened to come across my DVD of Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home. This film has Leonard Nimoy as Spock of course however he also directed this film and is listed as one of the writers as well. I will truly enjoy watching this movie again today ( " Captain there be whales here " ).
Just wanted to mention that there is a nice video-clip of Nimoy visiting Vulcan ( the town in Alberta ) over on YouTube. He made a personal appearance at their Star Trek museum back in April of 2010. If one types in " Nimoy in Alberta " the clip will come up ( it runs 4 min 10 sec ).
For those Star Trek fans who are looking for a collectors item Re Leonard Nimoy I see that CBS has put out a special 99 page magazine on his life.
Just had the chance to watch " Star Trek V - The Final Frontier " again, not a bad film, quite interesting. I still like " The Wrath Of Khan " best, followed by " The Voyage Home " ( " Can you tell me where the nuclear vessels are ? " cute that ).
--- Thanks for the post CapainPike. I had not Watched Star Trek V in some time as I had misplaced my old vhs copy of that film. However recently I had the chance to buy some Star Trek movies on CD's including flms V and VI and I also had the chance to view Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country recently. Christopher Plummer was a great choice to play one of the bad Klingons and I quite like this film as well.
I recently came across an old magazine here entitled " Media Spotlight " published back in 1977 ( Boy some of the old stuff that I've got packed away lol ). I've got the 3rd issue of this magazine here and all three are dedicated to the Star Trek TV show including also most of the ads. For example back in 1977 you could buy a 3D Chess set for only $ 12.98, not bad. Or you could get a 2 foot by 3 foot poster featuring the crew and their ship for only $ 2.50. These items must be worth a bit of cash today on the collectors market.
We seem to have hit a bit of a lull here in this thread so let me just post an item from Mr Spock: " LLAP ".
Well how many " Real " Star Trek fans do we have ? CBS Watch has just put out a beautiful special edition entitled: Star Trek - Heroes and Villians ( this is Volume 1 of their 50 Years Legacy Edition ). So how many visitors here have bought this very nice book ? Volume 2 will be out in September so don't be shy, step right up and buy these items ( if you like Star Trek that is lol ).
Well I must say that I am shocked at this time as there are no REAL Star Trek fans here at this site ! Nobody is willing to pony up a few dollars and buy a very special publication about Star Trek ? Beam me up Scotty because the loonies are taking over down here.
"Melik & Me! with GM Melik Khachiyan and Gerard Le-Marechal"
