Did everybody hear that Walter Koenig recently got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?


You can watch his ceremony and speech on Youtube.  Nimoy, Nichols, and Takei were there, too.


Pretty cool, huh?

I have another interesting bit of trivia... and observation... for those TOS fans, did you know the device Nomad (The Changling) and the Romulan cloaking device (The Enterprise Incident) and the M4 device used by Flint (Requiem for Methusielah) all used the same parts.  And, the bottom of the cloaking device was also one of the recepticles Sargon and his two fellow beings stayed in waiting for the chance to be human again (Return to Tomorrow).

To Switherdawna:


Yes, one of Gene Roddenberry's many talents was re-cycling props.  I understand that he mentioned this idea in his pitch to the networks for Star Trek:  that he would save production costs by re-using props and costumes.


The M-5, the atavachron, and Gary Seven's computer where all the same prop. that computer wiith a big, round screen and the alternating, flashing long-shaped lights.

I appreciate that Vulcan lady... but I always had the impression that was TOS's downfall... they used many things over and over again, like some visual sequences of the Enterprise flying through space, explosions, and I believe even some fight sequences. Since the TOS episodes have been re-edited, new animated sequences have been injected in the newer, digitised episodes. Is that a good thing, or is that tampering with an old artform? I like the episodes being 'upgraded'... you?


 


BTW, today I'm watching an old movie White Feather (1955)... and who plays an interesting part in it but Jeffrey Hunter (Captain Pike - "The Cage" / The Menagerie.)

A classic movie is advertised on TV... 'To Kill a Mockingbird'... and who stars in it but another popular Trek alumni.


Brock Peters (July 2, 1927 – August 23, 2005) was an American actor, best known for playing the role of Tom Robinson in the 1962 film To Kill a Mockingbird. He also gained recognition among Star Trek fans for his portrayals of Fleet Admiral Cartwright in two of the Star Trek feature films and Joseph Sisko, father of Benjamin Sisko, in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He is also remembered for his role as Hatcher in Soylent Green. He was also seen on an episode of Battlestar Gallactica as a prosecutor. He also sang back up vocals for Harry Belafonte in 1956 for the popular "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)."  For a number of years, he also played Detective Frank Lewis on 'The Young and the Restless.'

I've seen that a few times while watching football.  I noticed that it's from one of the early seasons.

Whoa, guys.  The BEST new ad is George Takei in a brand new Old Navy commercial.


The young models are even wearing the Star Trek shirt colors and it looks like a tribble is floating in space!


Funniest of all, instead of George saying his trademark "Oh, my!" he says "We're all going to BUY !!!!" with a big grin.


Check it out on youtube if you haven't causht it on TV yet. (this commercial is on TV frequently, though!)    


It's a big, current "thumbs up" to Star Trek!

Just saw two more Star Trek stars on Mission Impossible this morning (besides Leonard Nimoy).  


It was the episode The Falcon with guest stars Lee Meriwether and Logan Ramsey


In Star Trek, Lee Meriwether had played Losira in "That Which Survives" and Logan Ramsey was Cladius Marcus in "Bread and Circuses".

Again, this morning, Mission Impossible had another Star Trek actor guest star.


Episode was "Chico", and actor was Percy Rodrigues.


He was Commodore Stone on Star Trek.
