    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!

    Presented below are some detailed auction house photos and the catalog description associated with Lot 66 in the upcoming The Prop Block September 26, 2020 Entertainment Icons Auction, for an extremely rare female Starfleet Command Tunic worn by Majel Barrett in her role as "Number One" in the first Star Trek pilot production "The Cage". It is believed that this is the only identified Barrett "Number One" tunic ever to appear at public auction.

    The complete auction catalog description is as follows:

    Star Trek: TOS Majel Barrett “Number One” Starfleet Command Tunic from “The Cage”

    An exceptionally rare and possibly unique female Starfleet command tunic worn by actress Majel Barrett in her co-starring role as “Number One” in the first filmed Star Trek pilot episode “The Cage”, which underwent principal photography during the months of November and December, 1964. The main tunic is comprised of gold velour fabric fitted with a black cotton collar and features clear indentations on the sleeves where gold rank braid was once mounted (currently not present). As Majel Barrett was the only actress in “The Cage” to feature rank braid on her Starfleet tunic, the evidence of past braid on this costume is a key element in identifying the tunic as being worn by Barrett. Additionally, both the location of the braid indentations fairly well up from the end of the sleeves, as well as the noticeably left-side shifted, off-center placement of the full body-length Velcro strip closure on the back of this tunic stunningly matches the characteristics of the costume seen on Majel Barrett in the opening scenes of the “The Cage”. (Please view the attached screenshot imagery and costume photos.) The black collar on this tunic is a modification that was made by the production team after the filming of the pilot was completed, in order that the costume might be used in regular season episodes. It is noted that a female tunic which appears to have this same configuration can be discerned in a background corridor scene during the 1st season TOS episode “The Corbomite Maneuver”, being worn by an actress that might possibly be Majel Barrett herself in a brief cameo appearance. (Please view the attached screenshot.) While lacking its original Starfleet chest insignia, this historic garment is in very fine production used condition and worthy of the finest Star Trek memorabilia collections. This is the first time we are aware of an identified Majel Barrett “Number One” costume ever being offered at auction.

    The September 26, 2020 sale features a total of 21 different lots of Star Trek franchise memorabilia. Interested bidders may register to participate in the auction directly on the icollector.com website at this link: https://www.icollector.com/The-Prop-Block-Entertainment-Icons-Auction_as67692?ps=100

    Presented below are some detailed images of various certificates, trophies and awards presented to Admiral Picard over the course of his Starfleet career, as displayed in the "Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty" exhibit at the Creation Official 2019 Star Trek Las Vegas Convention, which took place from July 31 - Aug 4 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Nevada. While these props have not been visually seen on-screen to date in any TNG episode or feature film, it is possible that some may have been used in the production of the new Star Trek: Picard television series, which is set to premiere on Thursday, January 23, 2020 on CBS All Access. A familiar award displayed below is the Grankite Order of Tactics, originally mentioned in the Original Series 1st Season episode "Court Martial" amongst other honors received by Captain James T. Kirk.
