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 glamour, and most retro. I'm easily distracted by bright shiny things. Or boobs. Or bright shiny boobs.

As the Eagle, the Apollo 11 lunar module, lands on the Moon with just 17 seconds of fuel left, and Neil Armstrong says “Engine stop,” CAPCOM Charlie Duke in Mission Control is clearly relieved.  Everyone cheers, then Deke Slayton tells them to calm down.

The Joker by Scott Christian Sava

This was my first Joker and, I don’t remember it, but my mom told me I was scared of him. I do remember his crazy laugh so I guess that’s what scared me.

In the briefing room scene near the end of the first act of “Assignment Earth,” Spock says: "There will be an important assassination today, an equally dangerous government coup in Asia, and, this could be highly critical, the launching of an orbital nuclear warhead platform by the United States, countering a similar launch by other powers."

"Assignment Earth" was first aired on March 29, 1968. Six days later, Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated by James Earl Ray. On that same day (April 4, 1968), NASA launched the unmanned Apollo 6 rocket, which suffered a serious mishap in flight and flew wildly off-course, just like the Saturn V featured in the episode.
