Star Trek: TOS
If you're in the Orlando Florida area this weekend you have chance to see Leonard Nimoy and Jonathan Frakes at the 20th Anniversary FX Show International.
Billed as the coolest show on earth, the FX show is pop culture convention featuring stars from comics, sc-fi, horror, and sports genres. The show is expected to bring 20,000 fans from all over the country to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
As reported on Everything USB, A new VoIP USB TOS communicator (set phasers to acronyms) is in the works. Scheduled for launch this month, the device will support VoIP / Skype and include TOS sound bites.
In the youtube video shown below, William Shatner talks about performing TV's first interracial kiss with Nichelle Nichols. It's interesting that The Shat talks about this being the first interracial kiss here but, in his book 'Star Trek Memories' describes how the censors required him and Nichelle to turn their heads blocking the kiss from view. Even though we don't see it, the kiss from TOS episode "Plato's Stepchildren" is still recorded as the first interracial kiss.
