Nerdist presents Quentin Tarantino’s “Star Trek”.
Trekkie Guy has an online memorial to the numerous actors and other contributors to the original Star Trek series who have died.
Given that the show aired half a century ago, there’s no particular reason to be surprised by the number of entries. But for some reason it’s still a bit unnerving to see pictures of young guest stars whom you vividly remember and then to read they died a few years ago in their 80s.

“Son, Starfleet’s not buyin’ what you’re sellin’.”
It’s finally here, folks. The final episode of “Star Trek Continues” can be found in the links below. Part II of “To Boldly Go” serves as a proper series finale to Star Trek TOS and it connects the Original Series to “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” (1979). There’s a subtle nod to “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and an even subtler nod to “Star Trek Discovery”.
This is a really well done episode with amazing visuals and great performances. If you’re a TOS fan, this is the final episode we’ve wanted for decades instead of the dreadful “Turnabout Intruder”.
The fandom owes a debt to Vic Mignogna, Todd Haberkorn, Chuck Huber, Chris Doohan, Kim Stinger, Grant Imahara, Wyatt Lenhart, Michele Specht, Steven Dengler and the small army of talented actors and production crew who put both tremendous effort and a lot of love for the franchise into the 11 episodes that are effectively season 4 of Star Trek.
I love these pictures of Desilu staffer Bill McGovern slating scene after scene of Star Trek with a nonchalance bordering on apathy. Some of the greatest scenes and most iconic characters in sci fi TV history, and McGovern, clapboard in hand, looks like he couldn’t care less if his life depended on it.
