George Merhoff, the gaffer for most of TOS’ run, delivers fascinating details about lighting the sets.
It’s big. It’s pricey. It’s gorgeous.
No. Well, maybe
My favourite Star Trek character lives in a museum in Washington.
I love this little Cheinco trash can. It says so much about Star Trek collecting in the ’70s.
Mego’s bridge playset was a big miss on accuracy but a big hit for playability.
Knowing the Enterprise’s class was a point of honour for young me, a bit of trivia that set me apart from kids who only liked Star Trek. It’s unfortunate young me had it wrong.
If I had a time machine, I would return to August 1966 and pay AMT to make me a Galileo. And I wouldn’t need to bring much cash.
The Omega Glory is the worst episode of the original series, but the View-Master version is magical. Step back to the 3D world of your childhood.
Gene Roddenberry’s 1964 pitch for his new show is arguably the most important Star Trek document ever. The pitch, usually referred to as Star Trek is…, was designed to sell the show to network executives and it’s an interesting look at Roddenberry’s earliest creative ideas.
The Franklin Mint 25th anniversary Enterprise is one of the most beautiful models ever produced, and I took a bunch of really nice photos of it.
I love the Enterprise. Its design is both beautiful and functional, and importantly it looks great on camera from any angle. I own a number of exquisitely detailed and highly accurate Enterprise models. This is not one of those, but I like it a lot anyway.
