Silly Texas man who likes Star Trek, Batman, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and 50s schlock. I'm also a big fan of Bettie Page, Elvis, old Hollywood glamor, and most retro. I'm easily distracted by bright shiny things. Or boobs. Or bright shiny boobs.

 

DON’T DO THIS. Orci is bad for the franchise. The fans do not like him. You will be giving the series to a man who has no fan support and who is not particularly good at this stuff and who has never directed a motion picture. This is Star Trek's big 50th anniversary. Do it right. Make a movie that respects the series and that honors the memory of Gene Roddenberry and his ambitious, positive vision for humanity. 

I’m also going over your head, Paramount. I’m going right to my good friend and occasional drinking buddy, Jesus. 

Jesus: listen, dude. I know you don’t like to get too involved. But I need you to step in this time. This is actually important. This is fucking Star Trek, man. I need you to take an active hand in this. Nothing drastic, just appear to a Paramount exec on toast or something. Do a Saul on the road to Damascus thing, let them see the light. In return I’ll lay off the Creationists for a week. Deal?

Guys, we may be looking at a personal fandom crisis point for me. Should I get my Star Trek tattoo removed?

Did anyone else notice how Superman is drawn entirely in coded masculine “dominant/strong” poses and Supergirl and Wonder Woman are drawn mostly in coded feminine “flirty/girly/fashiony” poses? They’re really well done illustrations and I don’t think it was intentional on the artist’s part, it’s just very indicative of how we’re taught to depict men vs. women in art.

No.

"I was not trying to be shocking, or to be a pioneer. I wasn`t trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time. I didn`t think of myself as liberated, and I don`t believe that I did anything important. I was just myself. I didn`t know any other way to be, or any other way to live…"

Happy Birthday Bettie! ♥

A publicity photo featuring Joan Collins in costume as Edith Keeler from “City On The Edge of Forever.”
While her 1985 autobiography’s recollection of this episode is rife with errors —  her belief that the script called for her character “Edith Cleaver” to tell the world that Hitler was a nice guy, for example— she did say a very nice thing for TV Guide's 30th-anniversary celebration of the franchise.
To this day, people still want to talk about that episode – some remember me for that more than anything else I’ve done. I am amazed at the enduring popularity of Star Trek and particularly of that episode. At the time none of us would have predicted the longevity of the show. I couldn’t be more pleased – or more honored – to be part of Star Trek history.
