They Boldly Went is a tumblr dedicated to Star Trek: The Original Series, featuring photos, videos, art, books, reference material, comics and very (very) occasional looks at the reimagining helmed by J.J. Abrams and company. We welcome questions and do our best to answer them.

It is maintained by Kevin Church, who writes comics, occasionally talks about other people's work, takes pictures and does internet marketing for hire.

He is on Twitter (and Facebook, but he doesn't particularly like it, so don't stalk him.)

In addition to They Boldly Went, Kevin also maintains the Agreeable Comics tumblr, which acts as an adjunct to his small publishing concern and Disco Potential, which focuses on disco, house and synthpop music.

If you enjoy this blog, you may wish to check out Boldly Gone, an irregularly-updated Star Trek webcomic, written by Kevin and drawn by Bruce McCorkindale.

(Yes, Kevin likes talking about himself in the third person.)

The first installment of the short-lived Star Trek newspaper strip, 1979.

(I received the entire run courtesy of Rich Handley a few years ago. It’s not brilliant, but it’s  competent enough and certainly more enjoyable than Marvel’s comics that started at about the same time.)

Seeking New Life And New 3D Renderings.

If any of the followers of this tumblr understand 3D rendering and can create a series of stock starship shots for Boldly Gone, this author’s biweekly Star Trek webcomic (with art by Ming Doyle) that comes back to life next week, please get in touch soonest: kevin@agreeablecomics.com.

It’s not a standard Constitution-class starship, but we do have blueprints and other reference handy. We’d also not need much in the way of shading/detail: we want an animated series looks to the backgrounds and ships. Thank you!

This tumblr’s author, along with his friend and collaborator Ming Doyle, has a Star Trek webcomic entitled Boldly Gone. It is not about Kirk and Spock and all of those fine folk: it’s about a starship captain that is forced to live in their shadow. Please to read, share and enjoy. Thank you.
