The Naked City

Naked City, New York City

In the late 1950’s to the early 1960’s “The Naked City” was a TV crime drama
that focused on the detectives working in New York’s 65th Precinct.
It was not filmed in a studio but in New York City providing a gritty, realistic backdrop to the stories.

Star Trek Experience

Star Trek

I have been a Star Trek fan since the beginning. Or almost the beginning. I started watching at the 3rd episode in 1966 and haven’t stopped. I, along with some friends, were at the first, and I do mean the FIRST, Star Trek convention in New York City at the Statler Hilton Hotel in 1972. (The hotel has since changed hands and is across from Penn Station.) 500 fans were expected to show up. Over 3000 did, along with Gene Roddenberry and other notable guests.

As the years passed, I have watched hours of Trek reruns, the new spinoff shows, the movies, etc. In my heart, the original Star Trek with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy  is (and always will be) my favorite.

The photograph above was made in 2006 in the Las Vegas Hilton. For several years the “Star Trek Experience” was on display there. There were gift shops, several restaurants, two Star Trek adventures (sort of a ride), actors dressed up as characters and plenty of props and a history of Star Trek. And hanging from the ceiling were several ships. Very BIG ships. Above, on the left, is “Voyager” from the show of the same name, and the Enterprise from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Star Trek – Happy Anniversary!

Star Trek, Enterprise

It’s Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been watching this show and the movies for this long.
