1985 Interview with Nichelle Nichols

I'm back, after a short absence from posting, due to various mundane things taking up time from the fun stuff for a little while. From issue #30 of "SF Movieland" magazine (formerly "Enterprise Incidents" after it went mainstream), published June 1985, comes this article on the fetching Nichelle Nichols. Love that sassy pose... she is rocking that miniskirt!

Bonus #1: an ad flyer from 1994 for a con featuring Nimoy.
Bonus #2: a publicity pic of Kirk and the shimmying (but ill-fated) belly-dancer Kara in "Wolf In The Fold." Her hootchie-kootchie dance was a memorable start to the episode, but to be fair some of the strength of the scene may have been due to the re-use of Vina's Orion Slave Girl dance music from "The Cage."

"How about dancing over here to my lap, gorgeous?"

Crossover Alert: Captain Kirk saves the day in the Cracked spoof of "Generations," to be found on "My Star Trek Scrapbook 2!"

This is slightly off topic, but may be of interest. Leonard Nimoy will be speaking in Rockville, Maryland on May 18th, 2011, about his life, Star Trek and more. Everyone is invited and please feel free to let your friends know about this event. Ticket prices start at $36 per person, but for $125 per person, you get better seats and a dessert reception with Mr. Nimoy where there may be an opportunity to get a book signed, shake hands, or just say hello (He'll be circulating in the crowd for a while, so no guarantees).
