Below, a clipping from a USA Snapshot feature on Spock's appearance on ST:TNG, mentioned in the article above and around the same time.
Bonus content: Below, the cover of the ST Postcard book, a large-format publication that came out in 1977, and printed on glossy card stock. In it were 8 pages of detachable postcards, six per page, for a total of 48 different cards. Back in the day when photos from the series were hard to find, this was a great item!
Below: a cartoon scanned from a 1989 Starlog magazine that's good for a real chuckle. At least he finally did get to be a captain in ST 6 (and an episode of Voyager.)
More recognitions: I just discovered, way after the fact, that MovieSet has this blog at the number one spot on their list of top Trek blogs! Cool...
