REMEMBERING LEONARD NIMOY ON HIS BIRTHDAY with John Tenuto

Hey everyone.  I received a Google + invite to a tribute to Leonard Nimoy. It would appear I was one of 46 people invited to this event.  This is a public event and everyone is able to tune in.  It will be held on: Thursday March, 26 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific 5:00 p.m. Mountain 6:00 p.m. Central 7:00 p.m. Eastern Since the majority of Trek Mate listeners are in the UK, you are currently four hours ahead of Eastern, so it would be 11:00PM....

A Fistful of Mirrors -by Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

This, Q thought, should be fun. He looked around the room, admiring its functional simplicity. The long conference table, the high-backed padded chairs, the large monitor screen on the main wall, even the potted plant in the corner seemed to cry out that it was the model of Starfleet design efficiency.

Harve Bennett

It’s my sad duty to report the passing of another towering Star Trek figure, Harve Bennett. The veteran writer and producer passed away on Wednesday, March 4, at the age of 84, less than a week after the death of Leonard Nimoy, with whom his career intersected — to the everlasting benefit of both men. He retired to Oregon years ago and died there following a long illness.   Bennett, of course, produced and co-wrote the...

Presented by CineConcerts, CBS Consumer Products and Paramount Pictures, the concerts will touch on major...

Leonard Nimoy: Each according to his gifts -By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

  He was Spock. That’s what many know, and that was one of the many thoughts that people had when they heard of the death of Leonard Nimoy. By his own admission Spock was a part of him, and in turn he brought life to the alien that he played. Without his intervention the half-human, half Vulcan science officer would have been very different. The Vulcan salute, so often accompanied with the statement “Live long and prosper”,...

He admitted indecent behaviour and two counts of assault on police. The judge gave him a 12-month conditional discharge. Clinton, of...
