The Second Coming of Star Trek


Well, it didn't come on a cloud in great glory to judge the living and the dead, or to usher in a new age of peace and righteousness, but it did usher in a new age of good reviews and happiness in the lives of Trekkers everywhere.

Posted this time from the old scrapbook is an article on "The Wrath of Khan" from the Rolling Stone magazine, published in July of 1982. It was so much more rewarding reading the reviews of this movie than those of the last, ST:TMP.

As an aside, you may have noticed a slowdown on posts here and on my other blogs. I've been devoting myself to finishing a personal project, and now that it's done, I'm going to try to get back to a fairly regular schedule of posting again. Thanks for sticking around!

Below, another in the aborted 1967 Leaf card series.

Even back during the series original run, Bill and George had their problems.

Good to hear all is well!

Thanks for the kind welcomes, it's nice to know one was missed! Sometimes real life intrudes, this time all was well, just busy. Thanks for coming back!

Did you know that John de Lancie who played "Q", is in a new Christmas Special? The title is "Christmas the Horse" John plays Santa Clause. Here is the link to a clip of the Special

I'm sooo happy that that article described Ricardo Montalban's portrayal of Khan as being "Sexy"! I've always found Khan to be quite the hottie!
