More behind-the-scenes views

I was digging through my files for material to post in another thread and I came across these images that were published in TV Star Parade magazine, August, 1968. Those old magazines are getting to be quite scarce these days, so I figured that a lot of people have never had the opportunity to see these. If the magazine retained the rights to the photos that their photographers took, and never released them to anyone else, then it's a good bet that these may not have appeared elsewhere since publication in the magazine in 1968. Enjoy!

I think I once saw a similar version of that Kelley, Nichols, and Doohan at the command chair, but never with Nimoy cracking up on the sidelines.

Re: More behind-the-scenes views

Thanks for sharing! I sent these over to my friend John Champion, who is one half of the "Mission Log" duo. He's added them to the official Mission Log facebook photo album and will gladly credit you for the find, TrickyDickie. Just PM how you'd like to be credited and I'll make sure he gets the info.

Thank You....I appreciate that. If I get time later today, I will post some more here. There is a really nice sequence from another one of these old magazines from when Leonard Nimoy invited a fan to the set and to his home. The fan even got to check out the shuttlecraft.

Great stuff! Yet some of these are begging for a caption.

Nimoy: "Who wrote this shit anyway?"

Re: More behind-the-scenes views

^ Great idea.



Nimoy: "Sh*t! What the heck's up with my hand? Honest, I had no problem doing it yesterday..."


Shatner: (thinking) Memorize... I... must... memorize... these... lines...
Deforest: "Bill, I can always whisper them to you."
Doohan: "Shhhhh! D, don't give him any guff. It'll break his concentration and we'll never get out of here at a decent hour."


Koenig: (thinking) I really hope Kelly doesn't see that I swapped a few of his lines for myself!


AD: "No Leonard, if you push that button, the doors open. Sheesh, how long have you been on this show?"
Kelly: "Oh great, now we're going to get a whole lecture on the subject."


Shatner: (thinking) I can just see that Emmy in my hand, right now.

Re: More behind-the-scenes views

Here are a few additional items I thought everyone would enjoy. This first one is from the same sequence as some of the others we've seen:



Notice the different style of chair that Nimoy is sitting in here:

That's just one of the Burke 116 chairs (with arms) instead of one of the Burke 115 chairs (without arms).

Right....I was just referring to the fact that style wasn't normally used on the bridge.

Re: More behind-the-scenes views

Yeah, because getting up quickly from the one without arms is probably less of a prop hazard. Makes a lot of sense given the kind of personnel movement that takes place on the bridge.

What I could never for the life of me figure out is why they didn't secure the chairs down with steel dowels into the floor. Any moving vessel should have chairs that are locked down. It's only sensible, no matter if you're on land, air, sea, or space.

Of course, the real reason was probably one of cost and time savings.
