Rare post TOS pic...
 
I came across this while googling something else. I've never seen it before and it was on a site called geektyrant.

Sept. 17th, 1976---almost exactly thirty-seven years ago.

Nimoy seems to be evoking Spock Disdain at the photographer.

Deforest Kelley looks like he's thinking: "What kind of fuckin' shoes is this guy wearing?" :lol:

Very cool picture. I thought that the entire crew was there for the launch like Shatner, etc?

Well you are right: the et ceteras like Shatner were all there; only Shatner himself wasn't.

That picture would have been much better suited for the already existing thread here, but I understand if you felt the thread title to be too offensive (though it is true). ;)

True. Was the reason he didn't attend ever given? I've always wondered why he didn't show up.

Perhaps Shatner was trying to distance himself from the Kirk role at that time, so that he wouldn't be typecast? Or maybe he just woke up late that morning and missed his plane.

The well-known press photo taken in front of the shuttle shows all of the main seven less Shatner, plus Gene Roddenberry, all dressed in some really hideous clothing.

FWIR, Shatner was doing what he did pretty much every day that decade, working. Probably KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS or a game show.

loved Doohan with the beard, it's almost Connery-esque.
