KIRK: What I don’t understand is how were you able to identify our counterparts so quickly? SPOCK: It was far easier for you as civilised men to behave like barbarians, than it was for them to behave like civilised men. I assume they returned to their Enterprise at the same time you appeared here. KIRK: Probably. However, that Jim Kirk will find a few changes, if I read my Spocks correctly. MCCOY: Jim, I think I liked him with a beard better. It gave him character. Of course almost any change would be a distinct improvement. KIRK: What worries me is the easy way his counterpart fitted into that other universe. I always thought Spock was a bit of a pirate at heart. SPOCK: Indeed, gentlemen. May I point out that I had an opportunity to observe your counterparts here quite closely. They were brutal, savage, unprincipled, uncivilised, treacherous, In every way, splendid examples of homo sapiens, the very flower of humanity. I found them quite refreshing. KIRK: I’m not sure, but I think we’ve been insulted. MCCOY: I’m sure.

Kirk and Spock playing 3-Dimensional chess in Where No Man Has Gone Before. I sort of wish that they’d kept the costume designs from this, because then the women would actually have practical wardrobe options like pants.

The culmination of two of my biggest dork worlds. LOVE.

I’m a terrible person… It has Leonard Nimoy in it, though, so it still counts as Star Trek related… right?

Finally! With weeks of anticipation, Walls 360 unveils their Star Trek series of wall art! (animated gif on the top right of the website showcasing a few of my photos)
I conducted a photo shoot at the Hotel Des Arts in December for the Star Trek Walls 360 release with a very good friend of &THEM, Yiying Lu!(Twitter’s “Fail Whale”, Conan O’Brien Presents: Team Coco, Maybelline New York) 
The next couple of days, I’ll be posting photos from the Walls 360 x Star Trek (CBS) x Yiying Lu photoshoot from the Hotel Des Arts.
Also, find my photographs from the shoot on Yiying Lu’s facebook, Walls 360 facebook, and the Walls 360 blog.
It was a fun experience. I’m excited to show off these images along side the release of the Walls 360 Star Trek wall art.
A special thanks to Yiying Lu, John Doffing, Hotel Des Arts staff and my &THEM family for helping me out with this. It’s a big deal to me and I’m happy to have been a part of a project like this.

The Slavic Inferno: Read the first draft of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek pitch, starring "Captain April" and the "S.S. Yorktown"(I find this...

slavicinferno:

On March 11, 1964, Gene Roddenberry handed in the first draft of his Star Trek proposal to NBC. The cast is almost entirely different, but the gist of the show is intact — truly a fascinating “what if.”
