Bill's Trek To The Top

(Click on images to enlarge.)

From the collection cabinets comes a magazine article from 1968, reprinted in a late 70's issue of the fanzine "Enterprise Incidents." Not sure of the movie/TV magazine it came from.

Below, another of Ralph Fowler's awesome drawings from the same magazine. I have word that Ralph has visited the blog, and I hope to hear from him soon. If I do, I'll let you know! Ralph, if you read this, please consider doing a blog of your own featuring your artwork on Trek and other genre subjects. I'd love to see it!

"Hello.... anybody home? Hello...?"

Bonus: magazine ad for the new "Official Star Trek Poster Magazine" that came out in 1976. I managed to get all of them, and they are a treasured part of my collection.

Whoopee! "My Star Trek Scrapbook" has been posted as one of the Top 5 Trek blogs over on Film Fresh's own blog. Check it out!

Oh wow, now this from De Kelley and I would be the happiest person in the world. :D

Btw. you have so many Bill Shatner and Len Nimoy articles, and I`m still in the beginning of collecting, so I`d like to ask if you always was more a fan of these two or didn`t they publish many articles of the other guys?

Thanks for commenting! I clipped and collected every article I found regardless of who or what the article was about, as long as Trek was the focus. So the preponderance of articles on Shatner and Nimoy indicate that they were the ones most interviewed. Articles on Kelley are rare, but I have posted some itmes and will post more as I continue to go through the collection. Hope you enjoy all!
