Trekkin' It Old School

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

YOU GUYS. If you're not following Leonard Nimoy on Twitter, you're missing out on goodies like this:

Hm? That noise just now? Oh, that was just me, collapsing in a fit of nerd glee.

There's also an adorable pic of Nimoy's son visiting him on set wearing Vulcan ears. Smiling Spock = happy Jen.

And while we're at it, there's a great article about one of my favorite OS Trek books, The Entropy Effect, over on io9. You should read it. (The book, I mean. You can also read the article, if you like.)

  9. Love both your blogs! I probably have the best Treky story. I am named after an episode in season 2 - Return To Tomorrow -

    My parents loved the name Thalassa, but they thought it was Elaissa (pronounced: A-lay-ssa)!

  13. I love that book! I discovered it quite by chance. I was staying with a friend years ago, and she had it. She didn't recommend it to me or anything, I just picked it up one day and read it, and couldn't put it down.

  18. I have to admit, I love all things Trek. Well, except DS9, it was never my fave. Kirk & Spock ROCK! :)

    On a total side note (tangent) I thought you should see these steampunk goodies on Etsy:

  19. Vonda McIntyre is my favorite Trek novelist. Her adaptation of Star Trek III is so good, it's better than the film; it really fleshes out the aftermath of Wrath of Khan.

  20. I remember seeing the ears-on-the-son video in an outtake reel back in the 80's... found a poor copy online: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAt7KLVdDdY (this clip is at about 1:05). They put ears on Nimoy's son and sent him out while Nimoy thought they were filming a scene for the show.

  21. Aughhhhhhhh! I didn't know Nemoy had a Twitter!!!! <3
    Definitely one of the highlights of Dragon*Con last year.

  22. What are they so happy about? I don't know, but De looks like he's ready to fall down from laughing so hard. Bill and Leonard look pretty happy too.
