JEREMY HAWKINS TRIBUTE RIP - 'warp speed mr. sulu...'

 Hi Trekkers, Heres a JUNE 2012 Report To The Transporter Room comments thread I'm re- posting in honor of Jeremy Hawkins who died in January. He was our blog buddy who stopped by to say Hi over the years. Its always a shock when COVID strikes, so stay safe people. Jeremy was good at co-hosting with A to Z and it won't be the same anymore.

 His graphic blog artistry illustrates happiness delivered by a gifted mind he shared with whomever asked. thanks Jeremy. When you get the time hop over to amazon and buy something, book or t-shirt to support the family. Mine is arriving on the 17th of February.  

Report to the Transporter Room Comments

  1. Congrats Spacerguy! You got me with Spiner. LOL

  2. i am here at the transporter... do i use a key to turn it on. hehe!

  3. Spiners good at telling these yarns maurice, he does a classic Picard impersonation too.

    Totally Jeremy. You'll find the transporter key beside the retro toys.

  4. i just went to the local comic book store where they have a collection of toys.. they had the galoob's 1988 star trek next gen figures... for like four bucks each. i almost got a few, but i had no money... but the original [more recent] classic set of the bridge that includes figures... was worth half, i think it is time to play with my set. warp speed mr. sulu... you play the theme in your head, like i am.

    damn you economy!

  5. I love these retro toys especially the ships! I've warped around the galaxy with them too, hehe. Its really tough cheese missing the Galoob bargains, Jeremy. These retro toys are sooo cool 'cos well when TNG got huge we were big kids, so the toys took off ahead warp fact 9, hehe.

    I suppose the nerd in me loved building and painting AMT's model ships too, (the ones with really cool sound effects and flashing lights) but you couldn't really play with those. My Enterprise is on the shelf crying out for me. It was more fun being the engineer and putting her together. I thought all the instructions and wiring would melt my head but instead I got off building USS Enterprise NCC 1701 and it taught me something. Perservere to the end. It was really worth it. Scotty would have been proud. I felt like an accomplished Starfleet engineer, just kidding but you know what I mean.

  6. Too much Star Trek info, my head is about to explode.

  7. Then you know exactly how Security Officer Mitens feels, hehe.

  8. Who’s the absolute most terrible, awful blogger on the planet? Me!!! :-o

    My sincere apologies for taking so long to get over here, Spacerguy. Would you believe me if I told you the transporter malfunctioned and sent me to another far off galaxy and it’s taken me this long to get back? No...I didn’t think so.

    I’m running so far behind on everything, including commenting on blogs, it’s ridiculous. I truly am so pleased and honored that you thought of me (because I love your blog & I love Star Trek) and hope you’ll forgive my inexcusable tardiness. (Congrats on your awards!)

  9. No worries Susan, pesky transporters! Do you want me to send my engineer over? hehe

I have two of his t-shirts.

Liz A. said...

What a nice way to remember him.

SpacerGuy said...

Thanks Liz

Truedessa said...

This is a wonderful tribute post.

Birgit said...

What a wonderful way to remember this man and I am sure he appreciates it.

SpacerGuy said...

They must be fun to show

SpacerGuy said...

Jeremy passing was so unexpected

SpacerGuy said...

My understanding is Jeremy never asked for payment. He designed graphic artwork to help people, writers, authors bloggers and more. I never knew about this until now, Birgit.

Weaver said...

We keep thinking it over and then we sadly learn it's not. *hugs*

Weaver said...

Lovely tribute. <3

SpacerGuy said...

Hi Weaver I got Jeremys Retro - Zombie: Art and Words in the post.

SpacerGuy said...

Jeremys sci-fi stamp is evident "There's no earthly way of knowing.
Which direction we are going!" is another he's left on Peggs priority One - under Star Trek Movies Weaver.
