Some details of my interview

Got a new email update from Marc Cushman on May 8th. He shared some more details about his upcoming 900 page book "These  Are The Voyages", full of surprising behind the scenes stories and pictures from every Star Trek T.O.S. episode, which commemorates the 45th Anniversary of Star Trek!



Of his interview with me, he says "You are one of the voices that walk us through the production, taking us on a tour of makeup, the trailers, the set, with a look at Bill Shatner and Marc Daniels at… Continue

Star Trek Re-Watch: "The Enterprise Incident"

Last week, I teamed up with friend and fellow writer David Mack to help relaunch the "Star Trek Re-Watch blog over at Tor.com. We took over the duties beginning with the original series' third season, and we're reviewing the season in airdate order, which means our first turn at bat was "Spock's… Continue

Star Trek 365.

So, I've had this book for a few days now after pre-ordering it from Amazon months ago. Published by Abrams Books, this hefty tome makes use of the publisher's popular 365 Days series format to present what is, essentially, a celebration of the original series.



I say this as a longtime Trekkie of the first order: If you're a fan of the original series and you don't have this book? You need to turn in your "I Grok Spock" pin, pointed ears, phaser-shaped water pistol, and your… Continue

Today's "Artifact of Nerdity."

Found this last night in the back of the closet down in "the Vault." Anybody ever seen one?







It's a type of poster they used to call "Wallbusters." This thing is monstrous: 50" x 38", and the idea is that the scene is perforated and removable from the surrounding white space, after which you stick it on your wall to give the room that whole "HOLY SHIT! They're coming to get me!" feeling. These were… Continue

Feelin' Nostalgic: the Star Trek Poster Books

It's a quiet Sunday evening here at Stately Ward Manor, and as I work my way through my Season 3 DVD set of Burn Notice in preparation for watching the 4th season premiere I've got on the DVR, I feel like gettin' bit nostalgic for some old-school Star Trek nerdity.



So, what's on the agenda tonight? A trip back to 1976, and the totally bitchin' series of Star Trek Giant Poster Books. Behold, yo!…

More original series Trek stories? Yes, please. Always.



So, I'm reading message boards this morning, and I come across a discussion started by someone commenting that they didn't want to see any more stories with the original Star Trek characters. He'd done some thinking, and figured that this one group of people had encountered far too many adventures to be credible. It wasn't realistic, apparently. To make it more interesting, he was referring only to the original series' 79 episodes, and not even the subsequent animated… Continue

Feelin' Nostalgic: Star Trek tech nerdity.

Over the weekend, TrekMovie.com posted new details about the very cool-looking U.S.S. Enterprise Manual to be published by Haynes in September.

Flipping through the Star Trek Fotonovels.

I've been doing some digging around in the Vault lately, and found myself pawing through some of my older books. Among them are these twelve little jewels...ambassadors for Star Trek from a truly bygone era.

Published in 1977 and 1978, each of these "Fotonovels" takes an episode of the original Star Trek series and retells it in a neat… Continue

Why, yes...the original Star Trek is still my favorite.

Last year, during the run-up to the premiere of the new Star Trek film, I wrote a semi-regular series of blog posts where I was "feelin' nostalgic" for the original series. The topics I covered included reminiscing about older Star Trek books, tributes to the original U.S.S. Enterprise filming model, to pleas for fans to visit the totally awesome website of fan turned pro and Academy Award-winning makeup artist Doug Drexler (who among other things is also the artist for the… Continue

October 23: On This Day In Science Fiction History

You don't more SciFi pulpy than what you get when you open the pages of a Green Lantern comic book.  The saga of Hal Jordan, the original 'guardian' of Sector 2814, finally graced the big screen in 2011's awfully tepid Green Lantern movie starring this man, Ryan Reynolds.  To his credit, Reynolds did the best he…See More

How would Star Trek interact with the city of domes?

All I know for sure is that if the original Enterprise ever encountered this kind of society, Captain Kirk would've said, "The hell with the Prime Directive! We have to put a stop to this madness!" And then blasted the place from orbit. After that, he probably would have checked into the Love Shop for an extended shore leave.See More

October 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Jeff Goldblum has always done some interesting work.  He captivated audiences as the scientist slowly losing his mind -- but not his humanity -- in David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly; and he walked us through the paces of Chaos Theory in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park.  And lest we forget to celebrate our…See More
