Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek Icon Gone But Never Forgotten #StarTrek #NichelleNichols

Nichelle Nichols who played the iconic role of Uhura in the original Star Trek series passed away at age 89. She was a trailblazer on TV and in life by her working with NASA to recruit people of color and women to go into the Astronaut program. I believe she was one of the most important people on TV during the time of the original Trek series. Without her, science fiction wouldn’t be as diverse as it is today.

Thank you for sending your hailing calls to a world that needed them, Nichelle. Well done. Rest in power.

Geek Thursday – Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and The Orville: New Horizons #StarTrek #TheOrville

Science Fiction is awesome and tonight is a double feature of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and the season premiere of The Orville: New Horizons. The Orville is a loving satire of Star Trek. Strange New Worlds is a prequel to the original Star Trek series. Going into space albeit via television is fun.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – It’s Fantastic #StarTrek

Tonight the first episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds dropped for streaming on Paramount Plus (in the USA) and I thought it was fantastic. This series takes place on the USS Enterprise featuring Captain Christopher Pike who was in command prior to Captain James T. Kirk. This new series will remind you of the original series that aired in the 1960s. Familiar characters such as Spock, Uhura, and Nurse Chappel come together with new faces to make this show special.

I highly recommend this to every science fiction fan. Boldly go to see it soon.

Celebrating Star Trek First Contact Day #StarTrek

First Contact Day is celebrated on April 5. It is the day when the Vulcans first make contact with humans on April 5, 2063. The site of the ‘First Contact’ is near the town of Boseman, Montana. It is my hope this comes to pass but Earth has to get its stuff together in order to be worthy of first contact. Thank you Gene Roddenberry for giving us the dreams to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Quote Of The Day

In a very real sense, we are all aliens on a strange planet. We spend most of our lives reaching out and trying to communicate. If during our whole lifetime, we could reach out and really communicate with just two people, we are indeed very fortunate..

Happy Star Trek Day #StarTrek #StarTrekDay

Give me the future that Gene Roddenberry dreamed of. Where humanity, science, and diversity are a way of life. Where new lives and new civilizations are not scary things. That’s the world I want to see. Live long and prosper. Boldly go. Happy Star Trek Day!

Quote Of The Day

Diversity contains as many treasures as those waiting for us on other worlds. We will find it impossible to fear diversity and to enter the future at the same time.
