Leonard Nimoy Stuns Trekkies



Star Trek the real World Premiere took place in Austin, Texas at the Alamo Draft House theater three hours ahead of Austraila's Trek Premiere! On Monday 6th April 2009 Leonard Nimoy beamed in out of the cosmos and received a rapturous explosion of cheering from surprised Trekkies who were delighted to see him. I was gobsmacked to see "MR SPOCK" materializing before my eyes on....ahem youtube. The Trekkie flames of passion engulfed me and a huge smile lit up my face. I was totally amped. I don't know how but the curvature of the space time continuum was being altered to allow star trek fans in texas (and I wished I could have just been there), the movie writers and Leonard Nimoy to make contact without causing a rupture in space time! It was happening before my eyes on youtube. Trekkies were energized with excitement, and were busy high fiving, while others cryed and laughed for joy. I have no doubt they will treasure this moment forever.



Fans were originally invited to a screening of the 1982 film "The Wrath of Khan" and a ten minute preview of the new star trek movie. Robert Orci, Alec Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof voiced concerns about taking on trek because of its mythic significance. "Thats another reason why we came down here, so that you could kill us if you hate the ten minutes initially." But surprise...surprise.... the camera focuses on a guy wearing a black baseball cap joining them onstage. Its Leonard Nimoy! I noticed Trekkie hands giving the Live Long and Prosper greeting shooting up from the audience in response to Leonards famous vulcan salute.





"What happened to the film?" queried Leonard. Someone responded "It went on fire." I can picture De Forrest Kelley looking down from above and saying "Sounds like sabbotage to me." Leonards talking to the audience now. "Tonight three hours from now, in Australia they're running the Star Trek Premiere for the new movie. Would'nt you rather be there?" It must have been weird to have all those expectant trekkie eyes staring at him right after the time when the film for "The Wrath of Khan" turned to ashes. What did the trekkies say? Watch and find out.

It turned out Tim League of Alamo was on a secret mission to thrill and the whole show was prepared in advance. The event organisers even played the films opening credits for "The Wrath of Khan" which melted and burned away apparently. Everyone was psyched out. Trully Awesome!

Live Long and Prosper!

Where No Man Has gone Before

Remember the nice but smart Dr Elizabeth Dehner played by Sally Kellerman who appears on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 bridge in the episode "Where No Man has gone before?." Its Stardate 1312.4. Dehner introduces her role to Captain Kirk's bridge officers as ship's Psychiatrist studying the crews reactions to emergency conditions. Dr.Dehner even has time to calmly put Lt Commander Mitchel in his place when he was only cracking a joke with her. Still, Mitchel evens the score by calling her a walking freezer unit. Hehehe... The look on Dehner's face is priceless. Scotty's "Engineering Division" is ready as always and "Human Life Signs" not Dr McCoy's Sickbay is represented by an elderly Dr Piper. All the department heads report in at Kirk's request. Its fun to discover dialogue gremlins in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" because it captures humanity at its best with our favourite Star Trek TOS characters and shares that experience with viewers.

Image Creator/Owner: Paramount Pictures or CBS Pictures.

Dr Dehner's purpose aboard the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 is soon put to the test when the Enterprise collides with a mysterious energy barrier at the edge of the galaxy. Unhappily Captain Kirk is just beginning his five year mission when a number of his crew members are killed and rendered unconscious by the ship's energy collision which also affects Lt Gary Mitchel and Dr Dehner who exhibit unusual signs of superiority after wards. The good Dr Dehner is cut down and rendered unconscious and mutates into a Godlike being. Gary and Elizabeth share a gradual transformation into omnipotent humanoids which coincides with the appearance of the energy barrier and the pairs high ESP abilities are no coincidence.

"Where No Man Has Gone Before" is the second pilot episode for the Star Trek TOS. Spock identifies Mitchel absorbing Sickbay's library files at a phenomenal rate which was a sure sign Mitchel was mutating fast and becoming more powerful. Time was running out for the Enterprise. Captain Kirk knew Gary's amusement with the Enterprise would soon wear off leading to boredom placing the Enterprise crew in grave danger. How would Gary react when he could no longer tolerate to look at humans or even play with them? The real question was, when were Mitchel's psychic abilities and powers going to threaten the Enterprise? Kirk's loyalty was torn between his duty to his ship and his friend which meant the Enterprise always came first. He wasn't about to sweat it out in a deadly game of cat and mouse and let her be destroyed.

After agonising about his friend, Captain Kirk decides to take action and save his crew from the dangerous mutating Lt Commander Gary Mitchel. Marooning Mitchel on the planetoid Delta Vega would be no easy task but soon backfires when the omnipotent Lt Commander breaks free of his confinement. Dr Elizabeth Dehner joins Mitchel on the planet and creates a paradise setting in an effort to distract Gary and win over his compassion but this fails also. Kirk finally comes to terms with what hes dealing with and realises his former friend turned deluded psycho killer had to be overpowered at all costs. Dehner helps Kirk defeat the zany Mitchel by using her powers and the Captains phaser rifle against him. It was a totally awesome fight to the death scenario which cost the heroic doctor her life. Elizabeth Dehner's dying words to Captain Kirk are, "You can't know what its like to be almost a god."
