Tribble Me Timbers
Today I ran across this old Tom Synder broadcast with a few of the actors (Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, and Walter Koenig) that played as the crew members on Star Trek, along with writer Harlan Ellison. This segment of The Tomorrow Show was evidently taped back in 1976 and evidently came off someone's VHS from back in the day, so it has problems, but for the most part it's watchable. If anything else it just a reminder of what VHS was like back then.
Tom Synder used to be a late night host that was interesting. His show, The Tomorrow Show came on after The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, so it was on extra late. Unlike today's current crop of (more or less) politically correct host who all have a pat scripted program, back then things were more free style. I remember Synder used to have rock musicians, writers, actors, and assortment of other guest. I always remember his constant chain smoking on air too.
Anyway I ran across this old five-part interview with Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, Walter Koenig, and Harlan Ellison who were at a convention.
Go over to Youtube and you can find the other links to this as well. While on the topic of Trek, I ran across a news item where they plan on making a new Star Trek series for 2017. If you are interested about that you can follow and read more about it here.
Quite frankly I'm already curious and looking forward to it.
Speaking of space, Virgin Galactic have unveiled the new SpaceShip Two, Unity for space tourism.
The other day I ran across one Youtuber's post about visiting Florida's NASA Kennedy Space Center. I thought it was pretty cool, so I thought I'd share. I've never been to Florida, but looked like something I'd want to check out if I'm ever there.
