Remembering Leonard Nimoy


"Diligent practise and self denial" is what Leonard Nimoy used to say. It being Monday, I arrived cheerily into work greeted by Bruno Mars Lazy song was on the radio. "Today I don't feel like doing anything" which is exactly how I felt but then I realised.......



Its Leonard's Birthday... I have to admit, I was emotional because I felt double crap to be alive and hes not. Millions of honorary "grandchildren" probably were too. In 2014 Leonard Nimoy offered to adopt us into his clan and many came in droves.

Are you one of them? How are you doing today?

 Live Long and prosper

Name a Drink that does not have the letter E

Heres one I found on Facebook which is good but then what self respecting trekkie doesn't like to get totally wasted once and a while?


Maybe you're into Star Trek, Rugby, Coors or cars but whatever your religion lets get the ball rolling (yes, I know I'm ripping off someone elses coor idea, :)

So being a Star Trek Nerd heres what I posted to Old Photos Dublin...


Name a Drink that does not have the letter "E" in it!

Anton Yelchin - Happy Birthday


Hello world and Friends, trekkers and trekkies. Its been two years since Anton Yelchin died on Sunday 19t June 2016. You'll remember he played Pavel Chekov, the USS Enterprise's navigator.

 "I can do zat" he yells while rushing down to the USS Enterprise's transporter to perform his miracle beam up trick (STID.) What a fun moment, I laughed because I have to admit, he was such a champion with that Russian voice and a hard act to follow.


Heres a happy snapshot of friends Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin with Zachary Quinto looking on I believe. I can't see Chris Pine. Anyway, here they are captured in a happy moment with Anton as Star Trek's cast hanging out together.

 

Zoe Saldana sums this moment up best.

Happy birthday Anton- in our hearts forever.

Star Trek Discovery Going Badly or Boldly?


1 Star Trek: The Original Series
2 Star Trek: The animated Series
3 Star Trek: The Next Generation
4 Star Trek: Voyager
5 Star Trek: DS9
6 Star Trek: Enterprise
7 Star Trek: Discovery


Heres a list of deep space, high tech, Star Trek TV shows, warping through space with our fab trek crews high fiving space monsters, I mean to see our heroes battling chaos in the galaxy is an absolute buzz but lets get serious. I won't take long. I promise. At least 7 of these battle cruisers were commissioned on Earth with Starfleet picking up the tab since the Federations charter in 2161. Impressive aren't they?



 So lets do some historic starship searching. Trekkers recognise creators Matt Jefferies and Andrew Probert seen here with the show's founding creator Gene Roddenberry....




 but let's not forget Bryan Fuller who some say went completely mad after co-creating Star Trek Discovery, poor chap. Oh well, nevermind, The USS Enterprise represented true hope, vast technology, and service to humankind.... which leads me to one last thing. Awards.

and here they are...

1 Emmy Award
2 Hugo Awards
3 Saturn Award
4 TV Land Awards
5 Television Critics Association Awards
6 Writers Guild of America
7 Oscars
8 Golden Globes

Star Trek has won many awards over the years because so much is right about it. Star Trek is such a cool catchy brand too with a neat ring to it. In fact I love Star Trek and wowsers now we have Star Trek Discovery.




So now heres the greatest battle of them all. Star Trek vs Discovery. Deciding which one has one has won the most Awards is just a click away, unless you already know.

How do you think Star Trek Discovery did at the Golden Globes? Going Badly or Boldly?

Live long and Prosper
