1976 article: Star Trek: Past, Present and Future
Bonus: below, a newspaper clipping about Bill's TV movie "Indict and Convict," from 1974. You can see the old tape that holds it in my first scrapbook, which was a school notebook.

Mad Spoof of "The Wrath Of Khan"
Speaking of Nyota sunbathing, here's a tantalising comic panel...
Want to see the whole sequence of pages from this scene? Let me know!
Update: a personal note... sometimes as I backtrack links that lead to this site, I see they come from discussion boards where they are talking about something I've posted. The comments go on for pages, sometimes. But here on the actual blog, sometimes there are no comments left at all! So, if you like a post, leave a comment! It helps me to judge how my readers are enjoying the blog. If I see no comments, I assume my visitors aren't liking it, and that doesn't give me much incentive to post more very quickly. So, if you like the post, leave a comment and let me know, and you'll get even more, and more often!

When Capt. Kirk Saved Oddjob's Life!
I've posted an article on "Impulse" before, go here to read it. To see the newspaper movie ad for this film, go here to my other blog "Held Over!"
Bonus: below, an ad that Nimoy did in the early 80's for a telescope company. Really, who better as a spokesperson for such a product? It's only logical.
And below, a beautiful piece of promotional art by artist Keith Birdsong, for the card set that he contributed to in the 90's. Excellent work!
And finally, below is another of the incredible works by Ralph Fowler, from an issue of Enterprise Incidents. Yet another example of his attention to detail and interesting alien architectural designs. Ralph often drew scenes that surpassed the TV budget of the show and took it into movie scope.

1983 Videogaming Illustrated article
Below, an introductory editorial page written by special guest Walter Koenig, aka "Screamin' Chekov."
Bonus: Below, a cartoon scanned from an issue of "Enterprise Incidents." Turns out Spock wasn't that different from a human kid, after all.

Leonard Nimoy's Life In Pictures
Same story as the last post: this article was scanned from a reprint in #4 of Enterprise Incidents, and was originally from a 1967 movie-tv fan magazine.
Bonus: Below, we see Bill tucking in his slave shirt... or is he adjusting his package for the cameras? You decide!
