Trek Fan Boldly Goes Where Gene & Jimmy Have Gone Before

On April 21, 1997, a capsule was launched into orbit aboard a Pegasus XL rocket from near the Canary Islands.  The little spacecraft carried partial remains of Gene Roddenberry and several others into low earth orbit and eventually deteriorated and it disintegrated in the atmosphere.  Then on April 28, 2007, a SpaceLoft XL rocket launched a portion of James Doohan's remains into a four-minute suborbital flight before parachuting to earth.  Both flights were operated by Celestis, a Houston, Texas-based aerospace company and a leader in public participation spaceflight.

Starfleet's Next Communicator: The Saga Unfolds

It appears that the next gen communicator prototype was indeed lost at the bar on K7.  A Starfleet communications engineer named Ensign Freeman was there to enjoy some much needed shore leave when a huge brawl broke out between federation officers and Klingon soldiers.  He unfortunately lost the communicator in the scuffle and has been looking for it's return ever since.

Here's a shot from station security of Ensign Freeman during the fight.  We received this image from an unnamed source aboard K7.

Leonard Nimoy was recently awarded the 2010 Douglas S. Morrow Public Outreach Award at the 26th National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  During his acceptance speech Leonard revealed that he's a big fan of real-world spaceflight, as well as the fictionalized version.

He also expressed his feelings about the recent release of the Obama administration space policy, "I do believe that President Obama means it when he says that he is 100 percent interested in space," Nimoy told reporters. "I know for sure he's a Star Trek fan," he said, because the first time the two men met, President Obama made Spock's traditional V-shaped finger spread.

The Fandom Interview Archive: A Treasure Trove Of Trek Star Interviews

The Fandom Interview Archive: A Treasure Trove Of Trek Star Interviews

We first heard of an interview series called "The Fandom" in the spring of 2005, right around the time "Enterprise" was drawing to a close. Also, during the mad fan rush to save the show and drum up support for a fifth season.  Unfortunately that never happened, and Captain Archer and crew sailed off for their final show that year.

The interview series, hosted by Chase Masterson, was a intimate glimpse into the lives of Trek stars and series crew.  What was particularly interesting at the time, was hearing the "Enterprise" crew reaction to being canceled as well as their reaction to the unyielding fan support.
