SPOCKS BRAIN - STAR TREK TOS

S is for Spocks Brain.


The games afoot on an M-class ice world in Star Treks #61 classic third season. Here we have the "Sigma Draconis Star System" where the Morgs live. Apparently, these guys live in awful stone age surface conditions, representing the ultimate specter of terror, for the lovely female Eymorgs - except here's the thing. The Eymorgs live underground and want for nothing except now their "Controller" has died!!! OH NO!!!! Oh My Gawd, imagine the poor dumb lovely Eymorgs living topside with the beastly MORGS!!!! LOL

So when a mysterious beautiful woman from this technologically advanced society beams aboards Captain Kirk's USS Enterprise NCC 1701, Is anyone able to stop her? No, of course. She supposed to be "mindless" and yet you decide.....I hate to be he one to break the news. LOL Okay I'm 50 years too late but even still. C'mon seriously, stealing  Spocks brain and vanishing leaving the poor dude behind? So now, the USS Enterprise crew are stumped with a real "who done it" mystery to solve.


ARTWORK: LONEANIMATOR























ARTWORK:HAMEED


QUESTIONS:

What parallel similarities do you see in H G Wells Morlachs and Eloi compared to Star Trek's Lee Cromonin Morgs and Eyemorgs?

Who has your vote, H G Wells or Star Trek?

Naughty Nightingale Women.

N is for Naughty Nightingale Women. These trek babies bringing forth memories from Star Trek's classic original series. Definitely, a wow moment, just look at their sexy Science and Engineering uniforms! The Vulcan princess in red is holding her fallen comrade with purple hair and obviously calling for immediate backup.



Curiously our shaken friend appears have "Trill" features on her face, which is fascinating! I'm thinking time travel perhaps? I'm jumping to this conclusion because -  the Trill were not members of the Federation in the 23rd century until the 24th DS9 era..... unless there's another reason?

Nightingale Women is a poem which reads, "My love has wings, slender feathered things with grace and upswept curve and tapered tip."

STAR TREKS MEDICAL MIRACLES AND MY SCI FI EXPOSE

I'm featured on Alex J. Cavanaugh's Blog today, way to go Alex, I'm soaring through the stars...

On a trekker note "Medical Miracles" has become a fascinating set of buzz words in science, engineering and sci-fi. I introduced this concept here at Star Trek Sci Fi Blog eleven years ago and then wowsers! NASA's David Allen Batchelor shares further insight on "the Science of Star Trek" at the NASA Website. You read right trekker, just remember Spacerguy broke the news right here, FIRST.



 My subject at the time was simple and remains popular even now. I chose "Dr McCoys Medical Miracles" as the subject title for my thesis in 2006 and wrote about McCoys "Medical Miracles". NASA's physicist David Batchelor gives his informed opinion on Star Trek's "Medical Miracles" revealing fantastic things about Star Trek's futuristic features. For instance are android positronic brains (imagined by Isaac Asimov) the real or unreal deal?

In Star Trek's universe. He points out whether 1.) Technologies work. 2.) Technologies/ certain stories plots in star trek are scientifically accurate or not. He also highlights mistakes from a fun physics perspective. What works and what doesn't work is no laughing matter.... get it???? but I believe I can boldly up the ante on NASA's Maestro of Physics, hehe. I plan on writing a piece on Dr Crusher's Medical Miracles to energize some TNG fun in our trekverse.

 So whats my trekkie ace on NASA's Star Trek physics expert, David Allen Batchelor?

No biggie really,




During my trek voyages, I've discovered new evidence coming from science fiction into reality! Star Treks Tricorder now officially exists but does it work? Apparently, the "Qualcomm Tricorder X-Prize Foundation" started a global competition which Final Frontier Medical Devices won and received $2.5 million bucks.

 What can it actually do?

The device can diagnose 34 health conditions long before 24 hours elapses using a custom built AI. The beauty of this thing are the non-invasive sensors providing a final analysis on the patient while cross referencing all available medical data on medical conditions.




The Roddenberry Foundation has added $1.6 million for the development of these tricorders where they will eventually reach patients in hospitals across the world.


Can you see a Star Trek tricorder diagnosing your health years from now?


Isn't Alex J Cavanaugh the coolest for giving me a shout out?


What do you think of David Allen Batchelor article "the Science of Star of Star Trek"?


I coined Dr McCoys Medical Miracles in 2006 but  I'm a trekker not database!

STAR TREK TNG - Ship In A Bottle

H is for Holodeck but what is it? Three dimensional projections of light and sound simulating locations, characters and scenarios like this one.

DATA AND GEORDI ON HOLODECK


 Ship in a Bottle begins with Data and Geordi running a Sherlock Holmes 3A programme which "demonstrates some very curious anomalies" on the Holodeck of USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D. Its funny listening to Data spout on with his lines all learned off by rote, chapter and verse. Just when the killer in about to get nailed in his "Sherlockian Holmes" Holo-adventure - soongs brilliant progeny cocks it all up. Kaazam, the bad guy turns out to be right handed, not left. Something is definitely afoot! You'd better Believe it. The Holodeck's computer is seriously confused.

GEORDI DATA AND REG

 So now the plot thickens leaving Geordi's Engineering sidekick Reginald Barclay running a level4 diagnostic on anomalistic sequences. Amazingly the computer (voiced by Majel Barett) informs Reg that all files conforms to specified parameters except those contained in protected memory!!! Poor dumb dumb Reg... if only he knew what happened in "Elementary, Dear Data" episode.

REGINALD BARCLAY UNLOCKS MORIARTY


 What does he do? He unlocks the holodeck sequence imprisoning Sherlock Holmes arch-enemy!!!! The famous adversary James Moriarty (Daniel Davis) presents himself live in the flesh! Moriarty tells Regs hes a real sentient lifeform not a simulation and given the right technology by Captain Picard of course he will leave the Holodeck, which stuns Reg into total denial but he'll find the Captain...

 MORIARTY AND PICARD ON HOLODECK


 So now we know Professor Moriarty is programmed to be as smart as Data, which results in him becoming self aware. The fun begins when Captain Picard enters 221 B bakers street. After pleasantries are exchanged the question remains, what now? Mind over matter. Cogito ergo sum. Brilliant reasoning no?

 Moriarty walks out into the Enterprise-D corridor, and doesn't vanish into thin air!!!! How is this possible???
 Moriarty: "I think therefore I am." 
PROFESSOR MORIARTY WALKS FREE FROM HOLODECK


At this point Moriarty's re-programmes the Holodeck and finds a way to motivate the rest of the amazed USS Enterprise bridge crew NCC 1701-D. So on the one hand, the only USS Enterprise-D we know to be true crew walking out of the Holodeck on 221 B Baker Street are: Captain Picard, Commander Data and Reginald Barclay only.

USS ENTERPRISE -D HELPLESS WHILE GAS PLANETS MERGE



 Meanwhile, two giant gas planets are about to fuse in the Detrian system and the Enterprise-D is stuck powerless. What does this ruthless Moriarty want? Countess Regina Bartholomew (Stephanie Beacham) and freedom to enter into the real world. You bet Riker is motivated to get moving fast!!!

PICARD, REG AND DATA WATCHING MORIARTY


The thing is Picard, Data and  Barclay are still on the Holodeck!! What would you do to get your ship back from your nemesis?  Using a ruse Captain Picard had to trick Moriarty to release control of the USS Enterprise-D.


COUNTESS REGINA AND MORIARTY THINK OF FREEDOM
BUT PICARD TRICKED THEM!!



Have you ever heard of Heisenberg Compensators? Uncoupling the transporter engineering thing was genius to fool these two love birds eh?  All you need is love? Well long story short it worked.
Professor Moriarty and the Countess Regina flew free to roam the galaxy in their shuttle, ahhh shucks how romantic!!!

COMMANDER RIKER SEES THEM OFF INTO A NEW HOLOWORLD



Live Long and Prosper !


Who was first to realise that the tricked USS Enterprise-D crew (Picard, Data and Geordi) were still on the holodeck? Wasn't it cool the way Picard tells the doppelganger Geordi to excuse Data and Picard for a moment?


WILL THEY EVER FIND OUT THEY'RE EXPLORING A HOLO-UNIVERSE?

ARTWORK CREDIT: Silver7854



KHAN: There she is! There she is! ...Not so wounded as we were led to believe. So much the better.

E is for Enterprise and Excelsior Engaging the Enemy

Remember when Star Trek's Excelsior and USS Enterprise engaged the enemy. Duh what?

 The U.S.S. Excelsior, NCC-2000 came to the rescue in Star Trek VI with General Chang's Bird of prey ready to swoop in for the kill, could Kirk's USS Enterprise NCC 1701 have survived on its own?


'Tickle us, do we not laugh? Prick us, do we not bleed? Wrong us, shall we not revenge?'





BY SILVER 7854 DEVIANT ART


 The plan was simple. Enterprise and Excelsior had to blow the living bejeebers out of Chang's Klingon bird of Prey.


Oh now, be honest, Captain. Warrior to warrior...You do prefer it this way, don't you? No peace in our time. 'Once more unto the breach, dear friends. Fire!

Which side were you rooting for? The Klingon Bird of prey, or Earth's Starfleet Federation? 


Was it really a fair fight?

D is for DEEP SPACE NINES DAX

D is for Dax . Everyone knows Jadzia Dax  from DS9. Actress Terry Farrell is a smash hit at Star Trek conventions and still looks great. Take a good look because Terry is everywhere. Jadzia regularly starred in Deep Space Nine as a Starfleet Science Officer . Her backstory is she worked very hard and underwent Symbiosis by joining with Curzon "Dax" who died but transferred his memories. How I hear you cry, well lets just say it involved a creature, lol.

 Jadzia is a brilliant scientist and serving as a "host" for "Dax" is the greatest honour a Trill can give.




What would you say to Terry Farrell at a Star Trek convention?

CASSADAWN ON AMAZON



So heres the low down trekkers. Astronauts on the space station discover life in a dirt sample from Mars. Deep space scares ensue. Wowsers, makes you think huh? It seems Byron is the top gun and Arenth is his cosbolt navigator sidekick. So what on Mars is going on and where do the cosbolt fighters fit in?



 Can Byron and Arenth determinate how to terminate the exterminators?

Braggadocious Harry Mudd

B is for Braggadocious but have you got the sci-fi hubris to answer this question? What crafty cunning Star Trek character with enough con-man bluff actually enjoys boasting but belongs behind bars? ...... Answer: Why Harry Mudd of course!

HARRY MUDD, ANDROID WIFE STELLA, CAPTAIN KIRK


You'll be glad to know then that Mudd's career of fast deals is being re- energized by Rain Wilson in Star Trek Discovery. Wilson co-starred in Galaxy Quest as one of the Aliens (Lahnk) and was awesome but what of Roger C. Carmel's character? Mudd starred in only two classic episodes which gives Discovery producers plenty of scope to play around with the prequel timeline.


STAR TREK DISCOVERY 'HARRY MUDD' RAIN WILSON

The secret here is to move mountains and create new Star Trek friendships. Times change, people change but not Harry, same ol Harry, hehe. He's still up to his ol tricks.....or is he?

Hmmmm Harry's new bag of tricks...

Andorian Alien Assassins

A is for Andorians but what do we know about these Alien unknowns? In 2161, the cold, icy planet of Andoria took part in talks to form a coalition with the UFP. So lets get down to brass tacks, trekkers.

Some say Andorians are loving sky blue passionate creatures but I hate to break the tragic news to you folks, history records our blue skinned friends as being passionate and violent! The baddest, Thelev murders Tellarite Gav in Star Trek's Classic "Journey to Babel." So he had attitude for sure!


SAREK OF VULCAN, CAPTAIN KIRK, TELLARITE AMBASSADOR GAV, ANDORIAN , TELLARITE DELEGATE


But it could be worse,  Bad enough, Thelev is a cold blooded murderer, well maybe not the cold bit. But the guy actually stabs Captain James T. Kirk in the back and hes the dude hosting the Babel conference on Starship USS Enterprise 1701!!! I know. You'd better believe it.

So now for the good news. Turns out Thelev is really an Orion spy in Andorian disguise! Haha... had you going, didn't I?

WHO MURDERED GAV? But heres the kicker can you identify the assassin?

Captain Lorca Commands the Uss Discovery Ncc 1031

Jason Isaacs is Captain Lorca but who is he? At Pinewood Toronto Studios, the CBS crew is boldly exploring the Prime universe with the leader of USS Discovery NCC 1031. CBS is keeping Discovery's new crew, new villains, new heroes, and “new worlds” curiously under wraps.

Isaacs played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter sequels also starring in the blockbuster movie "Fury" yielding 211 million at the Box office. So here's a fun photo of Discoveries cast celebrating James Frain’s birthday.

JASON ISAACS (Captain Lorca), MICHELLE YEOH (the U.S.S. Shenzhou’s Capt. Georgiou), CHRIS OBI (T’Kuvma), SONEQUA MARTIN GREEN (Lt. Commander Rainsford), (GREENS HUSBAND KENRIC) DOUG JONES (Lt. Saru), JAMES FRAIN (Sarek), AND SHAZAD LATIF (Kol). IMAGE CREDIT INSTAGRAM: CHRIS OBI


Speculation over Discoveries star lead will have us guessing this year. Who's in charge? Isaac or Sonequa Martin-Green or Michelle Yeoh? - Captain Lorca or Lieutenant Rainsford or Capt Georgiou? Exciting and beautiful, Rainsford is trek's first female, African-American lead for a Star Trek series.

Mary Chieffo (L'Rell), Mary Wiseman (Cadet Tilly) and Michelle Yeoh (Captain Georgiou) are terrific recent additions. How sensational will the discovery crew venture to get you hooked on the shows futurism?






Star Trek's impressive brand new space babes will do everything to catch and delight new audiences. Are you ready to hand over your cash for the newest, latest CBS All Access adventure? But, no Network TV Trekkies, however, Netflix is underwriting the entire sci-fi series.

The series will be distributed by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space Channel and CraveTV. So sci-fi fans, set your phasers on stun because we'll be warping ahead in certain parts of the world






Meanwhile, to recap, Star Trek Discovery is 10 years before Captain Kirk's five-year mission. To date, five starship captains have been our friends, our protectors, and guides through 50 years of Star Trek. Were you along for the awesome journey? Which Star Trek, Sci Fi series do you watch?

WILLIAM SHATNER, PATRICK STEWART, AVERY BROOKS, KATE MULGREW AND SCOTT BAKULA

What would you say if you met one of the five "Star Trek Captains?"

Who is your favorite character, captain or alien race?

Which Federation starship is your favorite?

Do you have CBS ALL ACCESS  or NETFLIX?

Will the CAST of the USS DISCOVERY open your hearts and wallets to watch the fun?

Who said “We are Star Trek family!

STARSHIP WARP DRIVE SPEED

Wakey, wakey, ahh ahh Nooooo, please! Who doesn't want to dream about STAR TREK?, with Earthers and Alien species exploring the universe in futuristic spaceships searching for M-class planets. It's all too fantastic to be a dream.

 I reluctantly wake up bleary-eyed, it's Monday morning, oh Gawd Nooooo... time for work.....that place... my real, get me out of here life....ugh....I drag the bed covers back over my head and grab another 5 mins aboard my starship.... But searching the stars could happen someday, right?

 So here I am... Captain of the USS Nightfall NCC 1703. While proceeding towards the most beautiful and nearest star system, Alpha Centauri, why not analyze Star Trek's unique system of warp travel. Warp One being equivalent to, The Speed of Light exactly 186,282 miles per second which is like Duh what? How does that work?

THE VOYAGE HOME SLINGSHOT EFFECT


Now pointy ears is piping up.

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER: All indications are given our current impulse speed, I estimate four years on our present course to reach the nearest star system Captain.

CAPTAIN: Come again? Is this Alice and Wonderland? Warp Speed?

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER: Non-Operational Captain. Terraforming, uninhabitable worlds under 21st-century conditions will be a feat of engineering. The Earth Federation enforces very strict regulations to protect indigenous lifeforms.

CAPTAIN: "Duh...what? Doubletalk, I want answers." I reply.

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER: At our current reduced velocity of less than the speed of light. It's looking hopeless Captain. Warpspeed is impossible.

CAPTAIN: Wonderful. Just Wonderful.

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER: It may not be possible to deliver terraformers to their designation safely. The amount of time we have to traverse the galaxy is limited. In order for me to complete the Kolinahr disciplines at the Gol temple of Vulcan purging the last of my emotions, we'd likely risk affecting the natural balance of order in the universe.

CAPTAIN: but this is supposed to be the UFP.... Screeching alarm clock.... smack...

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER: Such a journey might in fact, take many hundreds of years into the future at sublight speed..... or delve into the past if we had warp speed.

CAPTAIN: Our descendants making the same trip might not even remember why we're making the trip in the first place.

VULCAN SCIENCE OFFICER   sQuite logical Captain.


CAPTAIN: Well, I'm glad we agree on something. So that leaves the Slingshot Effect around the sun doesn't it?

ZATS DUH KLINGONS SHIP. I'VE GOT TO GET ME A BIRD OF PREY, 


So there you have it trekkers. Is this a dream with a dream?  Well, you decide! Maybe I had too much beer, lol. but you'll never guess who turned up! Our Klingon Warrior friends no less, haha!  These guys wanted to know how in blue blazes I ended up on the moon all by myself drinking beer. Anyone care enough to figure out how I drank the beer?

 So here I am offering the Klingons a Saurian_brandy instead, haha... one more for the road.....

Qapla! Where would you have photo-shopped the Klingon Bird of Prey hovering by Earth's gravity.

How would you rate this story as an entertainment piece?
