If You Can Appreciate Those Things Referenced Above, I Think You'll Appreciate this Blog. For a more complete list of Those Things Without Which I Feel Life Would Not Be Worth Living, check out the fandoms link at the top of the index. The only things I post that aren't fandoms or referenced above are things I find amusing, silly, or otherwise enjoyable.

I'm a deliberate blogger who relies on his queue to maintain a steady and balanced offering. I often don't post more than a dozen or so items each day. If I re-blog something, I truly find it worthy of sharing and I hope you'll feel likewise. This can make my posts blend in or get lost in your dashboard, but I prefer it to assaulting you with a stream of spam.

Make sure to take a look at the top links for a quick "Get to Know Me" -- and if you really want to explore a wealth of epic content, then go through my Archive which goes all the way back to the end of August 2011 without interruption.

In Addition to This Blog, which is my primary, I also co-run three others. One of them being the top Star Trek blog on Tumblr, Star Trek GIFs. I also founded and serve as editor for the DS9+VGR Confessions blog and co-run one of the only active Terminator blogs on Tumblr. Finally, I'm on staff at the largest fan-run Star Trek site, TrekCore.com, where amongst other things I've helped flood the web with a multitude of rare and behind the scene photos.

George Takei as Lieutenant Sulu and Walter Koenig as Ensign Chekov in the only publicity still of just the two of them from the Original Series. 
It was also one of the first ‘buddy shots’ that convention organizers started to produce after the multitude of requests they got about such.  In the earlier days of conventions, vendors would produce such knowing the fan desire.  But in the late 1990s Paramount waged war on such ‘unlicensed’ photos and for about a decade, you could only get the handful of photos that got licensed (and usually sucked!)
I’ve always liked such photos.  Thankfully, in the past decade though, if such doesn’t exist of a specific pairing of characters, the company will make such.  Which is how it should be, damnit!  I’d like to take some credit for such, having made numerous requests during the years before they made such, but I imagine it would take more than one annoyingly persistent fan…

Captain Hikaru Sulu, U.S.S. Excelsior.
Little known factoid: Sulu’s promotion to Captain of Excelsior was originally written for “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" before ever seeing said ship.  The scene was even shot - but according to George Takei’s autobiography, Bill Shatner kept giving an even worse-than-normal (or acceptable) performance of said scene.  To that end, it eventually was simply scrapped due to time and budget.
Some might say, “oh, it’s just old colleagues being bitter” when they hear of such nonsense on Shatner’s part.  But if you’ve ever met him, you find it much more believable.  He’s funny on stage or on camera, but absent said spot-light, he’s a prima dona all the way.

The rarest variant Original Series cast photo.  All the other versions of this one where taken from off to the right, with the cast looking ahead off into nothing.  This is the only one of them straight-on on the bridge.

The cast and creators of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.  In addition to Kirk, McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, Chekov and Uhura, we’ve also got director Leonard Nimoy (who technically did not star in the film; he only appeared in the end scenes and was not in the opening credits) producer Ralph Winter, producer Harve Bennett, and Trek overall Creator Gene Roddenberry.
