Fascinating Fans First


F is for Fascinating, Frequencies, Fans and First. In Star Treks classic 'The Corbinate Maneuver' Uhura appears providing actress Nichelle Nichols with her signature line 'Hailing Frequencies Open' which she says seven times during the episode. Theres little doubt that the popularity of Star Trek characters has gone from strength to strength in the eyes of the fans.

Several of Star Trek's characters have signature lines of dialogue. The guy with the ears, Mr Spock regularly says 'Fascinating.' Dr McCoy's legendary quips include 'Hes dead, Jim' and Chekov the Ships Navigator, screams 'Aaaaaagggghhhhhhhh! The fact is many of the first season episodes were cast out of shooting order, a fact easily discernible by the characters uniforms. Which characters geekspeak is your favorite?

Hail Long and Prosper, trekkies and trekkers!

I'd have to jump to the next series and say 'Engage!'

Okay, "Aaaaaagggghhhhhhhh" made me laugh out loud, but you forgot about the "nuclear wessels!"

Then there's Scotty's "I'm givin' you all she's got, Cap't." Or some such equivalent.

I'm a doctor not a bricklayer!

Yeah, love the Star Trek 4 scene with Chekhov on the streets of San Francisco (or is it L.A.?) at the height of the Cold War saying: "I am looking for the nuclear wessels!"

This concept was pioneered by Russians.

A message coming through, Captain. On the screen.

That's the closest Spock ever got to an LOL.

Love many things Star trek. Can you believe there may be an episode or two I haven't seen? Must address that.
thanks for visiting my little blog.

My favorite McCoy-ism is, of course, "I'm a doctor, not a [fill in the blank]!"

And I've always loved Scotty's excuses as to why he couldn't do something that was absolutely without a doubt a not-a-chance-in-the-world impossible thing...and then five minutes later, he's done it.
