no reason why i'm posting these, but then i probably don't need a reason.

"a conversation with scott bakula" a nerd HQ 2016 (some thing zachary levi from chuck does)

scott on CBS sunday morning talking about NCIS: NOLA

scott at the 50th anniversary trek creation con in vegas

he sang just a little bit of a song from hamilton & if i didn't internally squee, i certainly squeaked because just a couple of days ago i posted a thing about a NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion.

he mentioned that if ENT had gone on longer the might have been a musical episode. so now, there needs to be a musical episode of NCIS: NOLA

archersangel: (like the movies)
and during one mission he opened a container & it had tow items, i forget wht the first one was, but the second was a tribble. he said: "i'm not taking that. the tribble can go fu** itself." he paused and added; "actually i think that's how they reproduce."

it's a "free to play" thing he's doing through the internet via the PS4 & dispite this game having been out for years, it has issues.

the game has a lot of things for the trek fan to pick up on; p'jem, orion syndicate, gorn, the aforementioned tribbles & the enterprise-d among others.

you can customize the hell out of your character. he's playing as a human, but i'm sure there's a boat-load of options for the klingon & romulan too.

1. Where were you on September 8, 1966? Did you watch the first episode of Star Trek that evening? If you are too young -- did your parents watch it?
i was too young. i don't think my parents did.

2. Who is your favorite Star Trek captain, and why?
probably janeway. i think she did ballanced the leader role with being a regular person better.

3. Who is your favorite Star Trek character of all time, and why?
i don't think i have one. but mccoy (TOS & i hate that was have to specify) is pretty close.

4. Which Star Trek series is your favorite, and why?
possibly voyager for daring to have a female captain as well as being set in the delta quadrant & not relying on the usual star trek aliens.

5. Which Star Trek movie is your favorite, and why?
either the voyage home or first contact. no particular reasons why.

On the same day CBS went on the defensive about the lack of diversity on its fall schedule, "Star Trek: Discovery" executive producer Bryan Fuller made clear that his new series will not have that problem.
Fuller announced Wednesday that the new show will feature a female lead character and honor the franchise's history of inclusion.

"'Star Trek' started with a wonderful expression of diversity in its cast. You had a Russian with a black woman and an Asian man amongst a Vulcan, which is a different kind of diversity," Fuller told reporters at a panel for the show at the Television Critics Association press tour. "We're absolutely continuing that tradition."
Fuller also said the new series will "absolutely" have a gay character.

i had a star trek dream (of sorts) the other day.

i was at some sort of sci-fi convention at a star trek panel, but couldn't make out who the actors were. someone from the audience during the Q & A part said that they were glad that star trek existed. the person on the panel replied with something like how they (the actors) wouldn't be there if on for the fans.
it turned into a mutual appreciation society with people in the audience raising their hands in a salute. with others doing the vlucan hand greeting (of course) and a few people looked like they were doing the hunger games salute.
then a song started playing. i think it might have been i'll stand by you by the pretenders, i just know it seemed familiar. then i saw gates mcfadden in the audience (where i was) complaining to marina sirtis that it was a over-used song & the other telling her that she liked it.

and that's when i woke up.

archersangel: (entertainment)

last year i posted about lenard nimoy's son doing a spock documentary. it premiered at the tribeca film festival earlier this year and will be opening in theaters and VOD on Sept. 9, one day after the anniversary of the sep. 8, 1966 premiere of the first-ever star trek episode.
you can pre-order at the official site & there's a trailer for it too.

MAC cosmetics with have a trek-themed line for TOS' 50th anniversary.

MAC Cosmetics has announced a Star Trek-themed line celebrating the film and TV franchise’s 50th anniversary. And resistance, as they say, is futile.

Set to hit stores Sept. 1 and go online Aug. 25, the collection will make its debut at San Diego Comic-Con as part of an exclusive one-day presale July 21 at the MAC Cosmetics store in the Gaslamp district.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomenon whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,” says MAC creative director James Gager of the beauty brand’s decision to launch the line. “For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.

i found it via [tumblr.com profile] captainofthenx02 where every day in january is a different topic. well, i'm no good at posting stuff like this daily so i'll do a couple when i remember now & then. see this post for the topics & consider posting your own answers on the journal site of your choice.

January 1: Favorite Trek Series (Television, Motion Film)
i guess they mean pick from either one? it's hard because i go back & forth on this, but if i have to pick i'd say probably VOY.


January 2: Favorite Novel/Pocket Book and/or Comic book and/or Comic strip and/or FanFiction
there's several that i like but i think i have to pick spock's world by diane duane. i was one of the first trek novels that i read & from what i recall of it, it was a great look at the (possible) history of a fictional planet. see this post on other trek novels i like.

As part of next year’s celebrations honoring the 50th anniversary of the original series of Star Trek, the United States Postal Service will be offering up four Trek themed postage stamps.

The USPS is known for honoring important moments and people in history on their stamps. It’s quite an honor to have one’s image emblazoned upon the official USPS stickies. In 2016, the USPS honors Star Trek in it’s 50th year with a set of four pretty cool looking stamps for you to decorate the corners of your envelopes.

Star Trek, Jim Kirk, terrible chat up lines  )
archersangel: (blue fairy)


Always wanted to tell your own Star Trek story about Kirk, Spock, Janeway, Picard, Uhura, Sisko, Major Kira, Archer, Tom Paris, Hoshi and/or the Borg, U.S.S. Enterprise, etc.? Well, your timing is coming, as Simon & Schuster, as part of its celebration of Star Trek's upcoming 50th anniversary, will bring back its popular Star Trek: Strange New Worlds fan fiction writing contest. The orignal Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was a yearly collection of Trek short stories published between 1998 and 2007, with the amateur writers' works chosen via an open submissions process. The new contest for 2106 will result in 10 grand prize winners who will have their stories published in the print and eBook formats as part of an all-new and official anthology from Simon & Schuster. Additionally, the two first prize winners will receive a free self-publishing package from Archway Publishing.

A deadline of January 15, 2016 has been set for submissions by U.S. residents only, and the winners will be announced on March 31, 2016, with the winning stories selected by a panel (to be named in the near future). And, to make the 2016 Star Trek: Strange New Worlds a fully fan-created package, fans will soon be asked to submit their artwork for cover consideration. Visit www.startrekbooks.com for additional details.

i found it in a round-about way through another tumbler & just spent the last hour reading like a year or so of posts.

in a previous post i mentioned that several star trek people provided voices for batman: TAS. in another trek/batman: tas connection, one of the episodes we viewed tonight, the strange secrete of bruce wayne, was written by judith & garfield reeves-stevens .

they wrote several star trek novels, including the "shatnerverse" novels with william shatner. they were also brought in during ENT's last season to try to revitalize the series.

....shatner rules: your guide to understanding the shatnerverse and the world at large by william shatner with chris regan and found out some interesting things;
  • that "william shatner" or just "shatner" is different than bill shatner. the first is a loud, egotistical over actor & the second is calmer, kinder & just wants to spend time with his horses, dogs, wife, children & grand-children. not necessarily in that order.
  • he is tired of people yelling "beam me up scotty!" at him.
  • he started to take star trek more seriously when he saw that patrick stewart did.
  • he really doesn't understand why the rest of the cast (other than nimoy & kelly) hate(d) him so much. they accused him of stealing the spotlight, but he says that every series has a star & that star naturally gets to be center stage.
  • he was a vegetarian for a brief time.
  • he regrets doing the comedy central roast.

every time it rains here we get a lot of slugs. if i could open a ferengi snack bar i'd make a fortune .

the star trek novel universe is so much more diverse than the shows, but of course you can describe just about anything in print & it's cheaper than make-up or special effects. of course the shows had the horta, excalbians, sheliak & the aliens in encounter at farpoint.
the novels had beings that were mostly tentacles. everyone wondered if they had teeth & found out for sure when the ship was invaded by hostiles & it bit one. the giant slug species that sits in saucer-shaped chairs, but because of their slime, always get stuck in them. the first of the species to become captain said she only did so so she could a fancy chair that was cloth-lined. the six-legged rino sized ones, that i hink were the same ones that rarely hurried because they lived for 500 years, so what's the rush? the federation is not, as azetbur said in star trek: 6, "a homo sapiens only club."

in non-trek thoughts: in NCIS: NOLA ATF agent percy (is she going to be a regular next season?) commented that they have a lot perrier in the refrigerator at their headquarters. so i was wondering: who's responsible for having it? my first thought was brody, it's hinted that she comes from money (possibly old money). then i thought maybe it's pride's, he something of a food aficionado, so that wold fit. unless the writers throw a curve-ball & make it lasalle's who developed a taste for it because a woman he was dating had lousy tap water (it was ok to cook & wash with, but had a chlorine taste) & that's what she had to drink.

and since the new orleans NCIS office handles cases from the mississippi river to the texas panhandle, are they ever going to have a case outside of their "backyard" of NOLA?
