Amazing Grace: Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

Happy 80th Birthday, Leonard Nimoy of #StarTrek! These photos I took 25 years ago of him in NYC

The anxiously anticipated day started off very exciting. I was with my good friend, Chase Graff, though at that time he went by the name Charlie and we were sitting on a sidewalk patiently waiting on this early June day. It was the fourth of June thirty-three years ago… the year was 1982. We were first in line for the long awaited sequel to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In hindsight, it is hard to believe that it was less than three years that had passed since the original Star Trek movie then. We were there before the theater opened  for business that day waiting. When the puzzled manager came to the theater, he was surprised to find us there so early waiting. He asked what we were waiting for and we jokingly said Das Boot, which was the other film playing at this cinema at that time. Long waits didn’t bother us because we were able to talk about everything under the sun. Though on this day, I imagined the topic was mostly on Star Trek perhaps and the rumors surrounding this particular movie. There was this talk that the character Spock would die in this movie. This couldn’t be so, we thought. Spock was our favorite character, after all. What would Star Trek be without Mr. Spock?

35 Years Ago, The Human Adventure Continued on the Big Screen with Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

It was 35 years ago today on a chilly night not unlike tonight (well, perhaps not as cold) when Star Trek: The Motion Picture opened in the theaters in the U.S. I remember vividly going to see it for the first time. After watching Star Trek all my life on television, we were finally seeing it on the big screen. Big it was, as it captured the scale and majesty of the refitted Enterprise and more like television never could at that time.

Standing on the Bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise [VIDEO]

Enterprise D and Bird of Prey

There's nothing quite like it. It was August 2008, just two weeks before the closing of the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas, NV and there I was standing on the bridge of the starship Enterprise. It's an incredible feeling for a life-long Star Trek fan. Now this was the bridge of the Galaxy Class starship Enterprise NCC-1701-D as featured on Star Trek: The Next Generation, not the original bridge from the original series, but it was no less exciting at the time. 21 years after we first saw Captain Picard command from it, relaunching Star Trek back on television, there I was standing on what seemed to be an exact replica of the television set.

Star Trek 45 Years Later, Enterprise Feels Like a House with all the Children Gone.

The Man Trap. The first episode of #StarTrek aired 45 years ago today (September 8, 1966), titled 'The Man Trap' on NBC. It was not the first episode made, nor was it a pilot episode, but the suits at NBC wanted a

Today marks 45 years since the very first episode of Star Trek aired. It was September 8, 1966 when NBC aired 'The Man Trap' to an unsuspecting audience. It is not the "birthday" of Star Trek... die-hard fans ('Trekkers') know that the series had two pilot episodes commissioned. The first pilot, 'The Cage' dates back to 1964, and the follow-up pilot, 'Where No Man Has Gone Before,' to 1965. The first episode to air was not meant to go out first, but the suits at NBC wanted an episode with a "monster" in it (they felt it had to compete with Lost in Space at the time), 'The Man Trap' had a monster and therefore it was selected to air first.

This anniversary is bittersweet for me. It comes just a couple weeks after loosing a long time friend who had been a great Star Trek fan. It was an unexpected loss and therefore I have to say even now, I am still in shock and disbelief about it.
