Interesting bong.

Nope, that's not a bong. It's a Graham condenser used in a distillation apparatus.

A bong would be made from an Erlenmeyer flask with a side arm, a Hirsch funnel with a glass frit, and some miscellaneous other pieces.

Re: Nimoy/Spock early promo pics

In these series of stills Kirk is holding the phaser rifle from WNMHGB -- i.e. Kirk, the action hero, Spock the scientist.

Spock continued to wear a tall black collar in "Corbomite Maneuver" and "Mudds Women" (other crewmembers' collers were somewhat different as well). http://images2.fanpop.com/images/pho...93-694-530.jpg

Then the "in-between" design has a tall black collar and straight-edged rank stripes on the cuffs. Worn only for embarrassing publicity stills.
I remember reading somewhere these shirts were from WNMHGB with the black collar sewn over top the ribbed collars.

Re: Nimoy/Spock early promo pics

Interesting, I'd never heard they just had the black sewn over. Didn't Spock also wear the tall collar for the first couple of episodes?

Personally, I like the tall collars more.

Is Spock spending his off-duty hours making moonshine in his quarters...?

I found this among my own files:


...but so far nothing on the Web. At least it's a clear look at the thing.
Wow, thanks! Yeah, it's not exactly the same pose as in the AMT box pic, but at least it's (fairly obviously) from the same shoot, with the same prop. Awesome!

Beautiful. I had forgotten about the Kirk picture also on the AMT box. Could that also be one of the promo pics with an "in between" uniform?

I've always loved the "in between" sessions. I just wish Kirk holding the 1701 was part of the session!

This is the exact box of the second Enterprise kit I built. Named it Lexington. I wanted this image bad, thank you.
And the collages you posted have some things I've never seen.

Some of the collage scans are from the Gold Key comic covers.
The b&w one where Kirk is holding up a skinny microphone makes me think Desilu found some space props and set pieces from the 1930s.
Since Star Trek's sets had already been built by the time Shatner came aboard, I wonder why they didn't use them for the publicity shots.
