Clint Eastwood visits the set of Star Trek: The Motion Picture with his children Kyle and Alison. The crew was shooting the “Memory Wall” sequence, a complex, effects heavy scene that was cut from the film after Robert Wise rejected it in favor of Spock’s spacewalk through V’Ger.

Contents Under Pressure

I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

It’s easy and lazy and a terrible internet cliché to say “this.”

But THIS.

My life is made immeasurably better by women who share the same interests and passions I do. I find their viewpoints and opinions helpful, especially when they differ from mine.

Gatekeepers: stop being juvenile. Stop acting like they’re taking anything away from you and realize what they’re giving you by sharing what they love. With their help, you might finally be able to haul your head out of your ass and see some daylight.

Okay, there.

A publicity photo featuring Joan Collins in costume as Edith Keeler from “City On The Edge of Forever.”
While her 1985 autobiography’s recollection of this episode is rife with errors —  her belief that the script called for her character “Edith Cleaver” to tell the world that Hitler was a nice guy, for example— she did say a very nice thing for TV Guide's 30th-anniversary celebration of the franchise.
To this day, people still want to talk about that episode – some remember me for that more than anything else I’ve done. I am amazed at the enduring popularity of Star Trek and particularly of that episode. At the time none of us would have predicted the longevity of the show. I couldn’t be more pleased – or more honored – to be part of Star Trek history.

Front Cover: Star Wars/Star Trek And The 21st Century Christians

Published in 1978 (and primarily focused on Star Wars despite Spock and the Enterprise featuring prominently on the cover), this book was published by Bible Voice in an effort to get the youth of America interested in what Jesus has to offer. New Zealander Winkie Pratney’s…odd phrasing throughout is summed up wonderfully by the back cover blurb:
"Trust the Force, Luke!"
Wouldn’t it be wonderful
If there really was a Force?
Something of great and awesome power
Available to anyone anywhere at any time!
Who would pay the price to learn of its ways and surrender to its direction?
Long, long ago, of a galaxy not far away,
It was written
“The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by Force”
Will you dare to lay aside your limits
And trust your life and destiny to the wisdom that holds together the stars?
“May the Force be with you.”

I apologize.

Vulcan girls really knock me out /
They leave Terra behind /
Klingon girls make me sing and shout /
Orion’s always on my-my-my-my-my mind
