    Most of the time, this blog is publishing items in my collection. But sometimes, when something extraordinary from Trek's past shows up, I will feature it, like the time the original Phaser Rifle turned up. Today, I saw a post shared by Trek contributor Doug Drexler that came from one Edward Barocela that revealed a wonderful story of a visit to the Star Trek soundstages and a photo not seen since.

    Here is the photo:

    And the story behind the photo:

    Edward Barocela‎ posted to the group STAR TREK - The Original and ONLY Timeline:

    "Nearly 49 years ago, my father Edward Sr., a motion picture engineer, was hired by Film Effects of Hollywood to work on upgrading the optical printers. One Saturday, my brother and I were out with Dad as he ran some errands. He stopped off at work and left us in the lobby of the building as he went inside to do something. Presently, a man walked by and noticed us by ourselves, bored and fidgeting. He said, "Hey, kids, do want to see a real spaceship?" Naturally we said yes, and he gave us directions to a set of double doors. We went through the doors and found ourselves on a small soundstage. And there she was: the Starship Enterprise. They let us work the control console to turn the big model's lights on and off, and to run the engine dome rotors at different speeds. They also let us handle the shuttlecraft and Romulan ship models. Needless to say, this experience made huge impression on me. I was 10 years old. Years later, my mother sent me this photo. I didn't even remember that anyone had taken pictures at the time."

    Too cool!

    At this time, I am very pleased to announce the release of "To Boldy Go - Rare Photos from the TOS Soundstage: Season Three", the final volume in my trilogy of Original Series rare, behind-the-scenes photography books. The foreword to this brand new publication has been authored by the master filmmaker Adam Nimoy, who so recently touched the hearts of Star Trek fans around the world with his exceptional documentary For The Love of Spock - a profoundly moving celebration of the life and most famous role of his father Leonard. It is truly so exciting and a great honor for me to include Adam's wonderful composition as part of this three book series; and I am so grateful to not only Marc Cushman, Doug Drexler, and Adam Nimoy for their extraordinary kindnesses, but also to so many others for their friendship and outstanding support.

    The "To Boldly Go" third season book is a 226 page, full-color interior, softcover that contains well over 350 rare photos - the majority in vivid color - on large 8.5" x 11" pages, displayed in a similar format to the first and second season editions. When one considers all three of the books together as a complete set: a total of just over 1,100 rare, behind-the-scenes production shots, NBC publicity images and candid stills from the making of all 79 episodes (including the pilots) of TOS are presented over a total of 676 pages!

    As was the practice for the first two books, I personally digitally restored all of the rare images that appear in this edition, with the specific goal of recreating the bold and vivid colors that were present in the original episode broadcasts. These rare photos, which originate from my personal collection that is over four decades in the making - beginning in the early '70s with the purchase of about 700 to 800 film clips from Gene Roddenberry's Lincoln Enterprises TOS fan mail order store - have been arranged into individual chapters for each episode; and are accompanied by usually brief but sometimes quite extensive descriptions about the filming or history of the related scene. The following article, which I wrote in January of 2014 at the time that about 70% of these images appeared in smaller and entirely black-and-white format in the outstanding Saturn Award winning Jacobs/Brown Press books "These Are The Voyages - TOS" by Marc Cushman, still provides a good overview and introduction to my rare Star Trek image collection:
    http://www.startrekpropauthority.com/2014/01/special-report-behind-scenes-look-at.html

    Presented below are some samples of the interior pages of "To Boldly Go - Rare Photos from the TOS Soundstage: Season Three" (just click on any of the following pictures to enlarge them).

    The book is available for immediate purchase at this Createspace store link (where you can save $6 off the purchase price and obtain it for $34.95 instead of its regular price of $40.95 by using the Discount Code 5BG395PJ when you check out):

    https://www.createspace.com/7022028

    Additionally, this volume will appear on sale at Amazon.com (and international Amazon websites) sometime in the next few days at its full list price (but will likely be subject to free or discounted Amazon member shipping services or other offers). Please Note: The above Discount Code will not work at Amazon.com and is just a special incentive to make the purchase at Createspace, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amazon.

    As I've said in the past, it is my hope that my fellow Star Trek fans who decide to obtain a copy of any of the volumes will be pleased with the presentation of, ideally, a number of rare TOS images that they have not previously seen, and that they will consider their "To Boldly Go" books to be an enjoyable addition to their personal libraries!

    Kindest Regards,

    Gerald

    4/29 UPDATE: The Season Three volume of "To Boldly Go" is now available on Amazon.com at this link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0692865462/

    Presented below are some detailed photos of the highly memorable costume worn by Alice Rawlings as Jame Finney in the 1st season TOS episode "Court Martial" (first airdate: Feb. 2, 1967); featuring a design that appears to have been inspired by vintage US navy / sailor style clothing. Some screen captures of this dress as seen in "Court Martial" are included after the modern day imagery ...
