Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

These images are from an old magazine that documented the visit of Peggye (who added the 'e' to her name in high school "just to be different") Vickers to the set of Star Trek. She was a 27-year-old from Garland, Texas that Leonard Nimoy invited to the set and to his home. He even sent her a plane ticket! Pretty cool stuff. Images 7 and 8 are from the same shot but were put on two different pages of the magazine, so a small amount was lost in the crease. This material is from an old scrapbook that I bought about ten years ago and the magazines were not taken apart all that carefully by whoever made the scrapbook, but at least the images have survived. In the transporter platform shot, notice how strong Nimoy's resemblance is to Quinto.

Great pics, thanks. Any captions to identify some of the behind the scenes folks in the pics. I recognized Shatner, of course, but not some of the others.

These are fantastic! (I don't see Shatner, though, contrary to the comment above.) Dig that groovy bandana around Nimoy's neck!

I thought that was Shatner casually standing at Nimoy's table, chatting with themin one of the pics.

Re: Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

These are great! -- I love the pic of the Nimoy, the girl, and the Mitchell BNCR camera. That is the camera they used to shoot Trek! An amazing machine. It can shoot prestine 35mm film even today!

Re: Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

Can anyone identify the episode they are working on (in the Joe Pevney pic)? I'm wondering if this set tour happened around the time that Nimoy was promoting his record album in 1967. He toured many US universities as I recall.

I can't imagine Nimoy actually paid for the ticket, etc, so the record promo thing sounds good - remember that Nimoy's albums were on Desilu's in-house record label, Dot.

Was this in 16 magazine, Tiger Beat, or another one of those kinds of mags? 16 was all over Trek in the day - first for Nimoy, then for Koenig. my sister was 11/12/13/14 when Trek was running and had a subscription to 16.

Hi Sir Rhosis,

I believe these pictures are from the January 1968 TV Radio Mirror magazine. If so, then the person in the tenth photo from the top, standing next to Nimoy, is Dack Rambo.

At any rate, starting from the top picture, here's who I recognize:

1. Person on Nimoy's left is Sandy Nimoy.
4. Teresa Victor (Nimoy's Assistant) is to Nimoy's left.
11. Person seated behind and between Nimoy and Peggye is Jerry Finnerman. As already mentioned, Pevney is to Peggye's left.
12. L to R: Peggye, Nimoy and Sandy.

BTW, Peggye Vickers was one of the presidents of the Leonard Nimoy Association of Fans (http://fanlore.org/wiki/Leonard_Nimo...iation_of_Fans). Leonard was (and still is) very gracious to his clubs.

Regards,

Dave

Re: Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

Dack Rambo would have been around. He was doing a show at Desilu/Paramount called The Guns of Will Sonnett. If memory serves, it was on an adjacent soundstage. It may also have used some of the 40 Acres backlot at Desilu as well.
