@Maurice and I have been teasing our new project on the BBS for more than a year now, and we're excited to finally have something to share with everybody! We're calling our new project FACT TREK. To begin with, we've launched a Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/FactTreks) where we're sharing behind-the-scenes information, production documents, photographs, and other ephemera. (You don't need a Twitter account to read the tweets, but it's easier to follow us if you do. Follow us, won't you?) Our first series of tweets covers the mystery woman seen in very early costume and makeup tests with Leonard Nimoy. First identified as actress Cindy Robbins in the terrific book Star Trek: Lost Scenes (2018), we dug up further production documents illuminating Cindy's Star Trek involvement (she nearly got the part of Yeomen Colt) and even got Cindy on the phone to discuss her memories of Star Trek and other projects. (The tweets about Cindy start here.) But since social media is geared for immediate consumption, and bad for historical reference, after we finish a topic we'll turn the material into articles on the FACT TREK blog (link). We already have several up, including... To Baldly Show What No Fan Has Known Before (Our detailed mission statement.) Yeoman Jolt! (Why was “Cindy Robbins” in tests with Leonard Nimoy? A longtime mystery solved.) The Martian Within (Discussing similarities between "The Enemy Within" and two episodes of My Favorite Martian) Our latest tweet thread went live earlier today. It concerns a Blues Brother and a reported visit to the set of Star Trek II and will be collected into a more detailed blog post to be published next week. We're sharing this in the original series forum because most of our research will be related to that series, but we'll occasionally branch out and discuss the first six features (especially the first two), the animated series, and other aborted Star Trek projects from the 1970s.
