1. Love that Riker shot. I'd have gone for Nemesis-era too, although at a stretch is it possible it's Insurrection-era.
I'm wondering if maybe, just maybe, it's something unique. Something perhaps Frakes had done himself at some point between the two films? I'm sure he either had, or could have gotten a uniform if he wanted. The reason I theorize this is that, it really doesn't look like either time period. It looks unique, and in the middle. Also, it doesn't fit the scheme of any other publicity photos. It's setting is totally unique. Someday, when I meet Jonathan again, I'll have to ask him about the photo - I have an 8x10 of it.

It was Kelsey Grammer who was the avid ST fan. The whole skit was done for him, so he could be involved in the ST special. At the last minute he became gravely ill, a relapse of his fight against alcoholism(?) and he was shunted off to a clinic. Kate Mulgrew stepped in at the last minute, to say the scripted lines of "the captain", so the skit could go ahead as planned. They'd be official costumes in the pic, from the Paramount wardrobe department.
I never knew that before. Poor Kelsey. I mean, not just for the relapse, but to loose out on the opportunity to do that? That's one of those things you kick yourself about years later.

I've had that shot on my hd for years. I used to know where it came from. It's part of a set that comes with this one:



It is an "off duty" shot (its the actor, not the character). In both of these stills, Frakes is wearing his wedding ring. At the time they were both unique in that there were no other posed shots with Frakes wearning a wedding ring in uniform. I think it may have come from a dvd magazine and the issue was about him directing. I'm afraid I can't remember more (old age...)

ETA: Where is that shot of Marina/Troi from? The one with the dinner setting? Is it from the outtake scene from Nemesis when she and Riker are having dinner with Worf?

I love that shot of Picard and Riker! it really captures the atmosphere of TNG when it first aired. There were a lot of "staring into the distance" images in those days.

ETA2. This shot, differes slightly from the one posted at Trek Core. You can see a Borg in this one, cropped from the other. (actually, it isn't cropped now I come to check. It's a different shot).



The date this was first modified onto my hard drive was 1998. So, it's pretty old now. Is that post FC?

Re: Rare Star Trek Photos for September 2008

Well, I think WillsBabe just answered some questions about the photo, while likewise presenting us with a few more questions!

It would seem the time frame from the photo is even older than thought, then. Sometime between FC (1996) and INS (1998) or around the time of INS (1998) at the latest.

Now I'm even more curious. And I really want a larger copy of that other Riker photo!

To answer your Q, yes, that photo of Troi is from the cut scene where they where eating in the Mess Hall.

Re: Rare Star Trek Photos for September 2008

^ Which one do you want the larger copy of? The one with the Borg or the "sun" orange one? I don't have a larger copy of the Borg one but I'm happy to send you a larger copy of the other one.

I think this photo shoot was about the time of FC. I think that this shot of Frakes



was taken at the same time. I'm basing this on the face that his appearance is very similar and that could be the same Borg in the background. I know that this was taken at the time of FC.

Re: Rare Star Trek Photos for September 2008

Thank you so much for sharing all of these, they're wonderful. I always wonder how many there'll be I haven't seen, and you always manage to produce so many that are new to me.

And as far as I'm concerned, the more Voyager, the better!

Thanks again,
Mad

I really love doing it. It's become a hobby of mine, and a bit of a passion. Preserving Star Trek's history is important. It's a part of who we are, what we love, and it should not just be forgotten or lost. Star Trek is very unique, as is it's impact on pop culture. Keeping as much of it's past alive and around is an important thing, and something we can all actually do just by little things like this. The more we share the rare things we have, the more they become secure for the future. People save them, use them later, re-upload them, re-distribute them, and while always being rare, they become known rarities, rather than things we forgot or never even knew existed.

So if you've got something you think might be rare, make sure to PM me here with it! I'm always open for submissions, and it will help ensure it's survival and that everyone can enjoy it. After all, what good is having a rare thing if no one else knows about it?

I'm actually curious; how many of you save even just one image you see from these Rare Photos? Has anyone ever re-used any of it elsewhere? Avatar, another website, a project of your own? Part of why I go to the lengths I do to put it out there is to make sure it's enjoyed and goes on beyond just being shown to you once, here. If you guys had any idea how much money I've spent on this project, LOL, you'd call me insane! So make good use of my insanity!

I've been saving a few, yeah, like these Riker ones (particularly that one in the gallery we've been debating because it is a lovely, lovely photo).

I always look forward to all the rare photos you find, most of 'em I've never seen before, and they're all quite cool! You really do a great job.

I've been considering using that Riker image as a new av.

Re: Rare Star Trek Photos for September 2008

Just put up the first installment of "Ultimately Human" -- a much better name than 'Casual Crew' if I do say so myself!

Check it out: http://trekcore.com/specials/thumbnails.php?album=27

Yes, I know, a little lady-centric, but the simple fact is there are about 10 times as many pictures of the various ladies of Star Trek than their are of the gents. I'm trying to locate materials, but finding both good quality and good resolution is a massive problem. I can find many great SMALL photos of the male actors of Trek, but barely a thing more than 300 pixels. Any help would be appreciated on that front.

Expect Jeri Ryan and Jolene Blalock to appear often. I've literally got so many high-res, high-quality photos of them I could do a WEEKLY special on each one individually!

Also, on the Rare Photos front, I've come to one definitive realization: Jonathan Frakes is an absolute CAMERA WHORE! I swear, I have more photos featuring Jonathan Frakes than any other individual in all of Star Trek. You would think Shatner or Nimoy would be dominant, or even Stewart, but no... time and again, Frakes, Frakes, Frakes! It's like "Where's Waldo?" in a way - he's in every damned picture it seems like! LOL

Peeps:

I noticed that a couple of the pics, like the DSN cast pic and the ENT partial cast pic, look like Polaroid shots. They don't appear to have been shot by a professional photographer. Other than that, the other pics are cool, esp. the Borg drones shot. Thanks, Frontier!

I'm slightly confused why it would matter if it's professional or not. Heh. It's about rarity, after all. Not professional or amateur. Some of the best of this rare stuff is amateur.

Fantastic! I especially love the publicity shots of Jeffrey Hunter and DeForest Kelley - I've seen very few shots of De Kelley looking that young, and it's always a treat.

And there would be NOTHING wrong with that.

The funny thing about that is that I remember the first convention at which I ever saw Frakes - it was between the first two seasons of TNG, and we were told quite explicitly that he didn't like to be photographed offstage!

I really like this feature! I've got a couple pictures from TNG; if you want I can ask the person I got them from if it's okay if I send them to you.
