For your enjoyment today, an article scanned from Issue 47 of the sadly now-defunct Starlog, published June 1981. What were you doing in the summer of 1981?
Bonus #1: Below, a local ad in TV Guide for the weekday reruns, from June 23, 1986, clipped while I lived in Beckley, WV.
Bonus #2: Below, Shatner takes a tumble on his motorcycle... but the funny thing is how cool and collected he is doing it. It's like "hey, I actually meant to do that... to... demonstrate... the correct way... to fall from a bike." I know that the people on this blog will totally dig this picture! It's really just for them.
Since around 1971, when I was first bitten by the Star Trek bug, I have been collecting all sorts of items for my scrapbooks; photos, articles, ads, and more. I hope you join me often on this fun and nostalgic look back, as I share them with you, one at a time. It's a "phaser blast from the past!"

Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
