  • Brent Spiner's “Lt. Commander Data” Isolation suit from Star Trek: Insurrection

    11 May 2014

    This is a bright red Isolation suit with helmet worn by "Lt. Commander Data" during the thrilling opening action sequence of Star Trek: Insurrection (1998). It's a complete collection of both "hero" and "stunt double" pieces worn by actor Brent Spiner and his stunt double Brian Avery.

    The isolation suit was a type of stealth clothing used by the Federation Starfleet in the 24th century. The suit was equipped with technology that made the person wearing it practically invisible.

    This Isolation suit includes Spiner's hero helmet and boots. The helmet has internal padding and an accordion collar. Brent Spiner's gold make-up is still visible inside. The boots are made of rubber. The belt has stunt double Brian Avery's name in it.

    The red jumpsuit has a rubber neckline, a Velcro waist for the rubber belt to attach and stirrups for the feet and thumbs to hold the fabric taut. Attached to the jumpsuit on the right sleeve is a “cloaking device” that has sequential red LED lighting triggered by small buttons.

    A gray shoulder piece from the Starfleet uniform as well as the yellow tunic is under the Isolation suit. The tunic has the screen matched burnt collar. Remember the scene when Data removes the helmet and is his head "floating" in the air. You can see the the damaged collar after Data was hit by a Son'a disrupter.

  • Spock's Camping Outfit from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

    01 Jan 2014

    This is one of the two outfits, which were worn on screen by Leonard Nimoy in his role as Spock in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) during his conversation with Kirk at the mountainside in the Yosemite National Park.
    It consists of a denim jacket with fluorescent green accents and a square shaped hole created in the front for use around a harness and a purple and black Dickie with matching fabric scraps and gray colored scraps.
    For the first scenes, when Kirk (William Shatner) and Spock are talking in a side view, Nimoy stood on a moveable teeter-totter. For the further scenes, the production team installed a pole at the fake rock wall made of fiberglass, attached one end to a body suit Nimoy was wearing under the outfit and moved the pole up and down.

    About the Designer

    Nilo Rodis-Jamero was the leading artist for the costumes used in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. He worked at ILM in the 1980s. He served as a visual effects art director on The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. He is credited as the designer of the popular Klingon Bird of Prey first seen in Star Trek III.  He went on to work as a costume designer for Return of the Jedi and as an art director on Star Trek IV, V and VI.  When William Shatner saw the detail that Rodis put into his storyboards for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, he hired him as a costume designer.  He shared those duties with Dodie Shepard.
    Usually it is a lot of work, but sometimes you're just lucky and able to find enough small details for a comparison between your item and the one on screen. When I had a look at the back side of Spock's Denim jacket I was more than thrilled about all the recognizable areas of the fabric, which are absolutely unique - just like a human finger print. For a clearly screenmatch you can compare the photo of the jacket (left) with a screencap from the movie below.

  • "Prelude To Axanar" Trailer

    18 Jun 2014

    The first trailer for "Star Trek: Prelude to Axanar" is up and live. This documentary-style movie takes place a little over two decades before the original series. You'll recognize several actors from "Enterprise," "DS9," and "The Next Generation." Why, oh, WHY can't we get special made-for-TV/straight-to-DVD movies like this? WAKE UP PARAMOUNT!!! There is a larger universe out there to be mined and portrayed.

    I like the way that the ship design, photography and battles show the influence of the Abram's film, as although I may not agree with the direction of that reboot, I think that the way things looked was incredible. Emulating that here makes for exciting space scenes, and fills in the gaps in the TOS universe canon quite nicely. Also the links to Star Trek: Enterprise (like the older Soval character as portrayed by Gary Graham) help bridge the time from that show up to the original series. The effects are up to cinematic standards, and the actors, like the great Tony Todd, raise it above the level of the amateur fan-film. Here is the link to view it on Youtube, where you can see it full-size in all its HD glory!

    Below, some screen captures from the video. Click on each one to enlarge.

  • New Star Trek Continues Episode!

    18 Jun 2014

     The third episode of "Star Trek Continues" led by Vic Mignogna has been released, and what an episode it is! A direct sequel to "Mirror, Mirror," taking up literally moments later, it is one that I really, really wish had been done on the series. But, I suppose they never could have done one set in the Mirror universe only, featuring just that crew; I'm sure it would have been considered "too confusing" to people back then just tuning in. The actress portraying Marlena, Asia DeMarcos, has such an amazing resemblance to original actress Barbara Luna that one almost forgets it is a different person. Enjoy!

    Star Trek Continues E03 "Fairest of Them All" from Star Trek Continues on Vimeo.

    Bonus: A new clip posted by Daren Dochterman of his CGI ST:TMP Enterprise! Because one can never get enough of close-up passes of that beautiful lady. I for one thought that the Spacedock scene in ST:TMP was the best part of the movie, so this is more loveliness to enjoy!
