    The Federation is mentioned for the first time in the episode “Arena” of The Original Series, but it remained ill-defined for a long time. Episodes in Season 2 would make reference to an Earth Federation (“Friday’s Child”) and a Federation of Planets (“A Piece of the Action”). The full name, United Federation of Planets, was […]

    Artist Bob Larkin has been responsible for many. many memorable covers of the magazines that I collected when young; Planet of the Apes, Marvel's monster magazines, Crazy, DC comics covers, Trek novel covers, and many many more. I have just created a Facebook group devoted to collecting his art in one place, so if you, like me, love his art and have good memories of it, come join us! It's at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/boblarkinappreciationgroup
    A true Trek fan himself, here we see Bob in a photo from his blog commemorating the 50th anniversary of the show! Visit his blog here: http://boblarkin.blogspot.com/

    In 1974 I sent off for my first Lincoln Enterprises catalog (see some of the other posts about them here), and in 1983 I was still getting them in the mail. By then, they were getting bigger and fancier, with color photos of much of the material within. Whereas the original ones from the 70's were in a newspaper format (which was fun to read then, but hard to scan now), the newer ones were in magazine format, though still on newsprint paper. This issue from 1983 included material from both ST:TMP and The Wrath of Khan. However, it still contained older material from their earliest catalogs, like Kung Fu, Search, and Gene's several made-for-tv pilots. This post contains the first half of the catalog, the second half will be posted soon.

    The painting prints offered below were unusual considering how they mingled characters from the films with figures like Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and even The Great Gonzo Muppet!
    Bonus: Below, the cover of the soft-cover "Make-Your-Own Costume Book" for ST:TMP. Published for kids, it surely wasn't made for accuracy. However, I think it would be a fun retro-cosplay for some fan to recreate one of these now!

    From a mid-70's fan magazine, title unknown since my copy is missing the first few pages. However, I didn't want this to prevent me from presenting an article in what remained, concerning a set visit during the filming of the third season episode "Day Of The Dove." If any fans reading this recognize the fanzine, please comment and tell me the title.

    From the back cover, great art depicting a couple of the lovely guest characters, Nona and Vina.
    BONUS: Below, a rare photo of Shatner with one of his daughters, from a movie magazine published during the series production.

    On September 25, 2019, Profiles in History will be offering a rare Original Series Type 2 Phaser Pistol, originally from the collection of Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols and with outstanding provenance associating it with the famous 3rd season episode "Plato's Stepchildren" (first airdate: November 22, 1968), as Lot 295 in their Icons & Legends of Hollywood Auction, with a pre-sale bid estimate of $100,000 - $150,000.

    The precise Profiles auction description is presented as follows:
    295. Original Type-2 Phaser Pistol from the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Plato's Stepchildren" - from the collection of Nichelle Nichols. (Paramount, 1966-1969) The Type-2 Phaser pistol is the most iconic and sought-after hand prop from the original Star Trek series - it is also the most difficult to obtain. This Phaser has extraordinary provenance: Star Trek producer Fred Freiberger gifted the Phaser to actress Nichelle Nichols, who played "Lt. Uhura", the iconic communications officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. Accompanying the Phaser is a signed letter from Freiberger, dated March 6, 1972, stating (in part): "I ran into Jerome Stanley [NBC Program Executive] last week (remember him?) He actually apologized for his "handing" of the "kiss issue" and admitted that he was wrong. I am still most proud of "Plato's Stepchildren" and kept a few mementos from the episode including a phaser. I thought you might like to have it. I have great memories of our work together and will never forget your support or the change we brought about ..." This Phaser is constructed of fiberglass, resin, turned aluminum and acrylic and measures 8.5 in. long x 5.5 in. tall x 2 in. wide. Exhibits expected wear to paint and scuffing to metallic surfaces. To many science fiction fans around the world, an Original Series Phaser pistol transcends its mere association with an outstanding television series; it represents one of the defining icons of American pop culture. In all of our years of business, this is only the third fiberglass Type-2 Phaser pistol we have handled and this example has impeccable provenance, being tied to the historic, groundbreaking episode. Provenance: From the collection of Producer Fred Freiberger and gifted to actress Nichelle Nichols in 1972. Accompanied with the original Freiberger letter gifting the Phaser to Ms. Nichols, plus a signed letter of provenance by Nichelle and a video of her discussing this Phaser. $100,000 - $150,000

    This site is pleased to present the following set of high resolution photos to document the design and construction details of this rare prop. These photos were taken earlier this month while the phaser was on exhibit at the Creation Official 2019 Star Trek Las Vegas Convention from July 31 - August 4 at the Rio Suites Hotel & Casino in Nevada. Special thanks to Brad Teplitsky of RareMemorabilia.com for his kindness in graciously permitting the photo session and the publication of these images ...

    Immediately below is an image of the original provenance letter, dated March 6, 1972, from Star Trek Producer Fred Freiberger to Nichelle Nichols that gifts the actress this phaser ...

    The following video features Nichelle Nichols discussing her acquisition of two Phaser Pistol props from TOS. While the "Plato's Stepchildren" phaser has been consigned to Profiles September 2019 Icons & Legends of Hollywood Auction, the second phaser, which has been attributed to the 3rd season episode "The Cloud Minders", is currently on exhibit at the MoPOP Museum in Seattle, Washington ...
