Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

I started a thread exactly like this last night, not realizing this one existed.

I'll repost mine.

After watching an episode of the original series, I noticed one of the producers of the show was Edward K. Milkis -- who went on to be part of the production team of Miller Boyett. They were later responsible for such shows as Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Mork and Mindy, and most of those TGIF series my generation grew up with on ABC throughout the 90s.

Isn't it that Brent Spiner is left handed? I don't recall TNG ever addressing Data being left handed, and in fact given his android abilities it would be illogical for him to be anything other than ambidextrous.

When the borg speak, it's all the drones talking at once.
All the drones on the Borg vessel, but not across the entire continuum.

That the body for the TOS Communicator was actually fashioned from a grade school pencil box.

I think one of the episodes when he was playing Sherlock he mentioned being left handed. But I just always figured that was him playing a character.

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

One thing that I have known for a little while is the origin of the Vulcan Salute: Leonard Nimoy created the famous Vulcan salute based on a blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim, representing the Hebrew letter Shin (ש), similar to the position of the thumb and fingers in the salute.

The accompanying spoken blessing is "Live long and prosper." The lesser-known reply is "Peace and long life." This is similar to a common Hebrew greeting, Shalom aleichem, meaning "peace be upon you", and its reply, "upon you be peace" (aliekhem shalom).

Being Jewish, and totally into Star Trek, I thought this was pretty cool. I think my next tattoo might be the image in the link below, but with "Live Long and Prosper" underneath it, in Vulcan. *Yes, I am a reform Jew with a different view on tattoos, and have several (including a a Jew-punk star of David)*

Holy Crap! I had one of those as a little kid around 1970. I think the shape was just an inspiration. It was too long and too narrow. And made out of squishy plastic.

If you click on the link they show how the box was used to form the bucks which then the kydex was used to fashion the comm body.

We always knew it was somewhere in San Francisco, but a sign in Star Trek Into Darkness specifies that Starfleet Headquarters is located on 2nd Street.

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

In the last scene of the Voyager opening titles the ship is missing the textures from it's underside. I never realised till I started to research the studio models.
