Do you believe in Teleportation?

Teleportation events date back as far as 1593, October 24th. The phenomenon itself fascinated earthers of the time. It was Charles Fort who coined the phrase "teleportation." which described the transportation of a person or object from one place to another.

So what happened on that October day in 1593? Seriously, does anyone have a real clue?

One particular noteworthy case occurred involving witnesses and a uniformed imperial guard appearing in Plaza Mayor in Mexico City. It was all very mysterious indeed.

The person was recognised as a palace guard for the Governor in the Philippines capital, Manila, whom people recall looked dazed and confused. He materialized out of no-where in the bright light of day looking like something out of Star Trek. When the villagers asked him who he was, he identified himself as Gil Perez. However he explained, he didn't understand how he ended up where he was. All was not what it seemed. Well well, rumours spread fast, "have we got a deserter, here?"

Gil Perez recounted his teleportation experience which began when the Governor, Gomez Perez Demarinas gave the order to have his head taken off! Why? cried the villagers in disbelief. "I spoke ill words of the Governor, I'm was so sorry. There can be no forgiveness, he said!" The Governor was not someone to be crossed. it was game over for me!. The villagers gasped horrified.


The blood from previous executions stained the wooden deck upon which numerous headless victims got split craniums and fell, gushing before blood thirsty spectators visiting the castle by invitation of the Governor. Perez felt weak at his knees and sick to the stomach. He rubbed his neck before being forced to place his head on the block.

 "No, way never, how can this be happening to be?" cried Perez begging for forgiveness. The block smelt awful. As a final insult to the condemned, the governor ordered the hooded executioner (who was a green alien with pointy ears) to use a blunt blade on Perez which added to the immense pain and suffering inflicted on victims. Perez screwed his eyes shut and hoped the axeman wouldn't botch the job as the blade cut through the air....

Later the Governor himself suffered an ill fate. Suffice to say no-one believed Gil Perez's story when he re-energized like Captain Kirk beaming down from the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 several days later in Plaza Mayor in Mexico City. But what really happened and who was the alien with pointy ears? No, instead Perez was arrested and chucked in jail as a deserter for abandoning his duty.


However upon close scrutiny his story actually held up. Years have passed but Records dating back to 1698 documenting this highly unlikely case were written by a religious historian. More witnesses testified that yes, Gil Perez was seen on duty as a palace guard the day before his mysterious appearance in Mexico.

 Why Governor Demarinas hated this guard isn't known. Gil Perez was sent back to Manila to retake his position as a palace guard and lived a seemingly uneventful life ever after. Believe it or not actually. These occurrences are actual real life events!  with elements of Star Trek but even still facts are facts!

Maybe somebody is having a laugh but one thing is clear. The records while contentious are indisputable. I've tried to give an accurate account of teleportation in 1593 which transpired in Mexico City. Did the Starship Enterprise save Gil Perez' neck by travelling back in time?

Would you have believed Gil Perez "Beam me down,Scotty story?"

Star Trek TNG The Best of Both Worlds
Writer Michael Piller
Director: Cliff Bole
Creator: Gene Roddenberry

A battle leads to all out war at Wolf 359. In Star Treks TNG cliffhanger episode the Borg take on the Federations flagship USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D! The United Federation of Planets is paralysed with the annihilation of 40 ships including Klingon, remember? Captain Picard now kidnapped and transformed by Borg automatons speaks for them. "I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is futile, your life as it has been is over - from this time forward you will service us!"

The Borg appear to have one collective mission on their hive minds. Get the Picard and wipe out the Federation. It's a magnificent stratagem for the Borg who beam aboard the Enterprise-D and swipe Picard by complete surprise. In beautiful precision these automatons execute their daring plan, stunning Starfleet's sharpest trained bridge-crew in the fleet.

 I was gob smacked in 1992 when Star Trek's Best of Both Worlds aired in Ireland. Tapping into one of the Federations brightest minds walking past Starfleet defenses using his knowledge... Pure genius wasn't it? but....... No way! I thought in 1992 as I went into complete denial, the Borg learned all about Federation tactical defenses strengths and weaknesses by getting at Picard. It was game-over man!

No, Never, Never! I cried as reality sunk in despair and had to accept grim facts. This was pure defeat.

 Worf said it best. "He is a Borg" when the rescue failed. Picard becomes Locutus, the new voice for the Borg. Any trekker who watches Star Trek's The Best of Both Worlds, Part I+2 even today will get an adrenalin rush with this chiller thriller.

 The unbelievable scheming of both sides sets the pulses racing as Commander Riker vs Borg Picard now "Locutus" battle it out for supremacy during this lead up to Battle of Wolf 359. Its really a no-win scenario in this epic action assault of firepower and wits until....Yes, Riker fires on Picard's Borg Cube!

Believe it. Mr Worf..... Fire!

How many lives were lost at the Borg vs Federation firefight at Wolf 359?


Who do you blame for the loss of Benjamin Sisko's(DS9) wife?

Admiral Hanson
Captain Picard
The Borg

Cadets have enrolled in Starfleet over the years making their dreams come true by turning scores of Doctors, Scientists and Engineers into future leaders. These guys are our protectors... Over 2019 we've been hearing a lot about them and it fair to say newcomers Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora are shooting the Trek with Star Trek Picard as we speak.


Now I Know what your thinking. All we have to do is watch Star Trek and put on our listening ears.....but questions remain. Is there an equivalent to Game of Thrones Sandor "The Hound" Clegane or Arya Stark ? These characters while set to fight civil wars in medieval times are interesting and fun to watch.


So who do you think was the ladies man? Kirk or Picard?  James T. Kirk had many conquests one being Dr Helen Noel (Dagger of the Mind) played by Marianna Hill. Jean Luc Picard scored big with Dr Beverly Crusher - Gates McFadden in (STTNG Attached)

So where will Star Trek Picard lead us in the future as the admiral time-treks on his mission through the 24th century?

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers
