    From a 1967 movie magazine comes this article with 40 intimate things you always wanted to know about Leonard Nimoy!

    (Click on the images to view full-size. Once open, you may have to click again to enlarge.)
    Bonus #1: A rare publicity photo of Shatner and guest star Celeste Yarnell from "The Apple." I have no clue what odd kind of alien plant he's using to impress her with his knowledge of...

    "Why waste time with Chekov over there? Let's show the natives how it's really done."
    Bonus #2: Rare publicity photo of Joan Collins as Edith Keeler.

    "Oh, Mr. Kirk... would you help me with the dreadfully heavy doily?"

    From a movie/TV magazine in around 1967 comes this article about Shatner that still seems to be relevant to the way he lives his life!
    (Click on images to enlarge. Once open, you may have to click again to view full-size.)
    Bonus #1: A 1967 article about the emotion-filled Leonard Nimoy. Note the half-shaved eyebrows that he had to endure for the whole series!
     

    Bonus #3: Below, a rare publicity picture of Nimoy and Jill Ireland.

    Bonus #4: Rare image of Jeff Hunter with a laser pistol prop! Note the industrial-strength tinfoil that was used for the cave walls and the rock formations on Talos IV. Very effective at creating rock-like surfaces! But I think a coat of matte-textured spray paint would have been more effective at making the reflective tinfoil surface look less metallic.

    William McCullar's IDIC Page, sadly defunct now, made available this very rare image of Majel Barrett (M. Leigh Hudec at the time) when she was screen-testing the makeup for the Green Orion Slave Girl.

    The “green girl” was the creation of Fred Phillips who also made Spock’s Vulcan look for the original Star Trek television series. Stephen E. Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry recalled in The Making of Star Trek (1968) how Phillips grew increasingly frustrated as three consecutive makeup screen tests, in which Roddenberry’s future wife Majel Barrett had been painted green, came back negative. "Now, Fred Phillips is an exceptionally fine makeup artist and recognized as a top pro in the business. He did a thorough job with the makeup and was quite satisfied with the results. Imagine everyone’s surprise, upon viewing the developed film the next day, to find the actress’ face just as normally pink skinned as ever! There was no trace of green." Gene’s orders to Fred Phillips: “Paint her greener!” The following day the test film again showed her as pink skinned as ever. Even Fred was dumbfounded. Recalling the incident, he says, “We did this three days in a row. We had her so green you couldn’t believe it and she kept coming back pink! Finally we figured out what was happening. The technician over at the film lab would receive the film every day and run it through the development solution. As the image formed on the film, he kept saying to himself, ‘My God, this woman is green!’ And so he kept correcting the film developing process in order to turn her back to normal skin color again!”

    Bonus: Below, a rare photo of Shatner and Whitney, made after the second pilot, but before the first filmed episode. The uniform worn by Shatner was only ever seen in these promo photos and never in an episode.
    "See, you adjust this satellite dish and you can get hundreds of channels for only dollars a day!"
    Bonus: A cartoon from the fanzine "Enterprise Incidents" that echoes the MAD Magazine depiction on a similar occurrence, referenced below it.

    Presented below are some images of several screen used Starfleet Insignia Badges from the new Star Trek: Discovery television series, which were fabricated in Toronto, Canada from silicon bronze poured into plaster molds and then polished and plated by a jeweler to create the desired custom colors which are representative of their associated Starfleet divisions: command (gold), sciences and medical (silver), and operations (copper). These attractive badges were part of a special Discovery-themed prop and costume exhibit at the recent Creation Official 2017 Star Trek Las Vegas Convention that took place from August 2 - 6 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Nevada. Star Trek: Discovery will make it's world premiere today, September 24th, with a simultaneous broadcast of the episode entitled "The Vulcan Hello" on CBS television and the CBS All Access streaming video on demand service.

It has been over 12 years and 4 months since the last episode of Star Trek: Enterprise was broadcast on May 13, 2005; making tonight's world premiere a most welcome and historic return of the Star Trek franchise to network television ...

    As seen in the following four images, these new insignia badges feature pips near the bottom left-hand corner of the design to denote the rank of commissioned officers within Starfleet ...
