Funny, Doohan's beard reminded me of Dr. McCoy in his first TMP scene.

Maybe that's where Roddenberry got the inspiration from ("Leonard, that thing Jimmy was wearing at the 10th anniversary of the show would really look good on you when you make your entry")

True. Was the reason he didn't attend ever given? I've always wondered why he didn't show up.
Because Takei and Doohan were there.

Nah, kidding, I'm sure he was indeed working.

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.
Of course. It was the '70s!

Re: Rare post TOS pic...

I have no idea where Mr. Shatner was on Friday, September 17, 1976, when the orbiter Enterprise was rolled out in Palmdale. But for what it's worth, Shatner wasn't really shying away from Captain Kirk and Star Trek. Back then, Shatner did a stint on The Storybook Squares (a kid version of The Hollywood Squares with fictional kid-friendly characters instead of actual stars) as Captain Kirk.

Here's a shot of "Captain Kirk" with "Old Mother Hubbard" (the late Milton Berle), "Little Miss Muffet" (Valerie Bertinelli) and "Simple Simon" (Anson Williams):



Interestingly, game shows would usually tape all five shows for the week on Friday--a marathon shooting day. (Well, five half-hour shows isn't much of a marathon.) So, it actually is possible that this is exactly where Shatner was that day--but that's just speculation.

As a side note about those goofy clothes: for an upcoming Star Trek Phase II episode, it's no secret that the Enterprise needs to go back to the "Rome" planet for one reason or another, When we last left that planet, its "modern-day" was 1967-ish looking. People wore late '60s clothes. Well, when we return, it's about 1970, so we speculated that in order to blend in, our Enterprise crew would need to be wearing the clothes that they'd be wearing on that planet at about that time (assuming it progressed about like our planet did).



(For costuming inspiration, we actually looked at stuff Shatner, Nimoy, and Kelley had been wearing back then.)

Thanks for the pics. I had never seen that show as I can't stand game shows in general.

As for the clothes I well remember wearing clothes like that in the '70s.

I'll trust your judgement about those performers, but to me they look a bit more like Lily Tomlin, Charro (as Lady Godiva, woof!) and Roddy McDowell.

Obviously, I need to get my eyes checked.

Sincerely,

Hmmm. If only there were a Wikipedia page that lists the entire cast of characters from The Storybook Squares game show.

I'm with you, except it looks to me like Joan Rivers instead of Lily Tomlin.

Spot-on. He really DOES look like that's what he is thinking.

I didn't even recognize Doohan for a moment, with that Connery beard.

The Wikipedia list isn't exhaustive, there's a more complete one here. I believe the photo shows Joan Rivers, Charo and Roddy McDowall as Pinocchio.

Yes! A better list--and far better guesses regarding who those other guests are in the picture!
