    Stop the presses! Here's a photo of Nichelle, taken either during the filming of Trek or just before, that has come to light... one that I have never seen before. I had to share it with you immediately! (Click on the images to see full-size, as always.)

    Bonus: Below, a fake "vintage" ad that I created using an actual photo of Shatner taking a dramatic smoke break. The professional lighting and look of Bill in the shot seemed to suggest an ad, so I put it in the framework of an existing ad from the 60's. This is not endorsing smoking, but is making the best use of a photo that was perfect for the ad!

    Bonus #2: amazing artwork depicting many, if not most, of the characters seen in episodes of the original series! See how many you can find or identify! (Click to enlarge.)

    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!

    Following the successful launch of Season 2 of the series in early March, Star Trek: Picard Production Designer Dave Blass released a breathtaking collection of concept art via his personal social media accounts, that focused on the design of the Sagan Class Starship U.S.S. Stargazer which was unveiled in the first episode of the season, that was so appropriately titled "The Star Gazer". As Mr. Blass commented on facebook, "Designing the newest starship in the Federation Fleet takes a lot of visualization and PREVISUALIZATION. A new Starfleet ship has not been seen fully in over 20 years, so this was a monumental task. The coordination between lighting, cinematography, visual effects, playback technology and the Art Department is key, so getting it done in the computer BEFORE we start spending tons of money, is key. I love big foamcore white models, but during covid, it was all Email and digital. Great work by Igor Vidyashev for the previs and his designs, James Addink did the heavy lifting for the Set Design team Sean Hargreaves, Scott Schneider, Tim Earls, James Chung, Daren Dochterman, Kevin Cross, Kyle Courter, Rob Johnson, Karl Martin, Alan Farkas and as always John Eaves and Doug Drexler contributed to details and layout and were all integral to the overall look of the U.S.S. Stargazer." Mr. Blass additionally credited "Blast shield Matthew Cunningham, Art Direction Mark Zuelzke, William Eliscu, Jann Engel, Dylan Bocanegra, Set Decoration by Tim Stepeck, Playback Todd Marks, Ben Betts, Larry Markart, Andrew Jarvis and Twisted Media. Graphic Design by Geoffrey Mandel and LCARS Upgrade by Michael Okuda". A selection of the stunning concept art imagery is reproduced below, with special thanks to Dave Blass and congratulations to the entire team on their exceptional work ...

    Presented below are some detailed photos of a Christina Chong screen worn La'an Noonien-Singh Pilot Style Starfleet Duty Uniform from the new Star Trek: Strange New Worlds television series, the 8th live action adventure series in the history of the franchise, which is set to premiere on Thursday, May 5, 2022 on Paramount+. This costume was recently on display in a special Strange New Worlds exhibit at Star Trek: Mission Chicago, a ViacomCBS sponsored fan convention that took place from April 8 - 10, 2022 at the massive McCormick Place center in Chicago, Illinois. This attractive design is highly reminiscent of the female two-piece Starfleet uniforms that were seen in the initial pilot episodes of Star Trek TOS - "The Cage" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before" - which featured a colored tunic matched with black pants as the standard female duty uniform prior to the introduction of the famous TOS miniskirt design at the start of filming of the regular season episodes. Not only does this new design feature the two piece, black pants style of the pilot; but the tunic design is also characterized by long seam lines running down the left and right torso at the front of the costume - to replicate that feature of "The Cage" design. Similar to the other new Strange New Worlds uniforms, this costume is infused with some delightful intricate new details, such as a subtle repeating decorative pattern that utilizes the well known TOS symbols of the crewmember's assigned starfleet division - Command, Sciences, Engineering or Medical - actually incorporated into sections of the uniform's fabric that runs along the length of the arms and shoulder areas of the garment. All of the Starfleet uniforms in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds are the creations of Costume Designers Bernadette Cross and Gersha Phillips in the ST:SNW Costume Department.

    Special thanks to my friend and fellow Star Trek fan T.J. Babinetz, who attended the Star Trek: Mission Chicago convention, for his very gracious permission to display his detailed photography of this costume in this article. Just click on any of the images below to view an enlarged version ...

    Note the bands of straight edged rank braid, similar to the style featured in the first Star Trek pilot The Cage, which is different from the scalloped edge style that was instituted during the filming of the regular season episodes of TOS. Also, as observed throughout these recent photostudies, the color of the rank braid on the Strange New Worlds costumes will change based on Starfleet division: Command uniforms feature Gold rank braid, Science uniforms feature Blue rank braid, Engineering uniforms feature Red rank braid, and Medical uniforms feature Silver rank braid ...

    Note the near identical placement of the long seam lines running down the left and right sides on the front of the Strange New Worlds and TOS Cage female tunic designs ...

    Presented below are some detailed photos of a Christina Chong screen worn La'an Noonien-Singh elaborate gown from the new Star Trek: Strange New Worlds television series, the 8th live action adventure series in the history of the franchise, which is set to premiere on Thursday, May 5, 2022 on Paramount+. This costume was recently on display in a special Strange New Worlds exhibit at Star Trek: Mission Chicago, a ViacomCBS sponsored fan convention that took place from April 8 - 10, 2022 at the massive McCormick Place center in Chicago, Illinois. It is a beautiful design for an intriguing new character to the Star Trek universe, whose surname suggests that she is a descendant of the famous Khan Noonien Singh, the genetically-engineered "superman" who became the absolute ruler of more than one-quarter of Earth's population and was so masterfully portrayed by actor Ricardo Montalban in the iconic 1st season TOS episode "Space Seed" (first airdate: Feb. 16, 1967) as well as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).

    Special thanks to my friends and fellow Star Trek fans T.J. Babinetz and Andy Holt, who attended the Star Trek: Mission Chicago convention, for their very gracious permission to display their detailed photography of this costume in this article. Just click on any of the images below to view an enlarged version ...
