RIP Sally Kellerman

It’s sad to see yet another person who contributed to Star Trek pass away. Sure, most of you cool kids know her as the original Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan in MASH the film but Sally played Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the second Star Trek … Continue reading

RIP Douglas Trumbull

Douglas was a huge pioneer in special effects, namely with Science Fiction. He cut his teeth with Kubrick via 2001 because the prickly director liked his work on a documentary for the World’s Fair about going to the Moon. This led … Continue reading

Painfully true with many fan boys

I’ve never understood the “political” accusation. A gay couple kissing on TV has little to do with politics since there are gay men with horrendous Right-Wing politics: Roy Cohn, Peter Thiel and we all know even if he doesn’t…Lindsey Graham. … Continue reading

Best obscure Star Trek costume-reference EVER!

The fan who did this one was a genius! Even though the alien was only shown once and on a rather lame and early episode…”The Corbomite Maneuver,” (sad I know it), which also had Cliff Howard as the guest star…its … Continue reading

Happy 6000th Post and Star Trek Day!

One of my favorite TV shows and shared universes celebrates being on the air for 55 years! It’s amazing it ever existed given how much NBC behaved like they never wanted the darned thing. Then history repeated itself with Next Generation … Continue reading

Shaka-laka-boom

I need to watch this episode yet again because I still don’t get it. I tuned it out when it first aired despite the great Paul Winfield returning to the franchise. I have no recollection of it when I tried … Continue reading

The only logical boy band to listen to

Works for me. Most Boy Bands and Training-Bra Pop stars are Deep Fakes from the start.

Join Starfleet! It’s not just an adventure…it’s a job!

I know this is just a set worker cleaning the bridge but it reminded me of a rare, funny SNL fake ad mocking the US Navy’s campaign to get people to join with their new catchphrase, it’s not just a job…it’s an adventure. … Continue reading

RIP Christopher Plummer

To the world, he was immortalized as Captain von Trapp from The Sound of Music yet he appeared in a ka-jillion things, most recently he was the cunning author who baffled his family, police and a silly detective in Knives Out. I … Continue reading

Picard: one season

It took JJ Abrams’ cabal of mediocrity to get Patrick Stewart to play one Jean-Luc Picard again. They surprisingly pulled it off too by utilizing the power of streaming as per Discovery: more violence and swearing than allowed on the broadcast … Continue reading

RIP René Auberjonois

Sad to hear this great character actor passing away but he brought scores of great memories for his comedic and dramatic acting. On the comedic side, my generation mostly knew him for being the foil on Benson, the guy advising the … Continue reading

RIP D.C. Fontana

Growing up with reruns of Star Trek like most of Gen X, you’d see D.C.’s name often in the credits. What you didn’t often know was that D.C. was a woman which was a rarity with TV writing, especially it was Sci-Fi! … Continue reading

RIP Aron Eisenberg

Saw the sad news this morning on IMDB and a couple Twitter accounts of Star Trek actors. I had no idea he was around my age but then again, he was rather short like all the people cast to play Ferengi. … Continue reading

A mash-up of THREE things!

First funny shirt spotted this weekend at Brick Fiesta Austin. It’s so hilarious at numerous levels given how sweet LeVar Burton/Geordi LaForge are.

Doug Jones

My final GACC Brush that I’m finally getting done because I’m going to Wizard World next week and I really, really don’t need the backlog in this department. I did save the best for last, Doug Jones! You won’t recognize him … Continue reading
