Your_Huckleberry: Mugato: For such an apparent pervert, Roddenberry was pretty pissed off when Kim Catrall (yes, she was hot at some point) did a nude photo shoot on the bridge.

I thought it was Nimoy who caught her doing the shoot and read her the riot act.....


Roddenberry would have probably been more bothered by the militaristic aspects of The Undiscovered Country. the fact that he was dying


Fixed.

Please tell me that this 1980 show is one of those "It's so awful i1980t's good" shows.

To quote one of the best episodes of DS9

"In the old days, operations officers wore red, command officers wore gold..."
"...and women wore less."
"I think I'm going to like history."

No, UFO was not from 1984 - it was set in 1984. It aired in 1970-71. It was the brainchild of Gerry Anderson, his wife Sylvia Anderson, and Reg Hill - the team who had previously made the children;s "supermarionation" series, The Thunderbirds, Supercar, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Stingray, and the later science fiction series, Space: 1999 (which was set in 1999 but aired in 1975-77). UFO was the Andersons' first series for grown-ups, but still featured their magnificent work with miniatures which would continue with Space: 1999.

UFO was awesome. Not only were the visuals well beyond their time, but so was the storytelling. Episodes didn't necessaries have a happy ending. Characters were flawed and had multiple facets. There weren't "good guys" and "bad guys", and characters had to make hard decisions that had consequences.

Damn, I just discovered that Gerry Anderson died today. By that I mean, today, 26 December 2012, was the day he died, not just that I discovered today that he had died.

This!

And this is from?

You're 12, aren't you?

Heh. Probably doesn't appreciate the finer things in life because they are "old".

lol

I might as well be 12 when it comes to most sci-fi. I haven't been big into straight science fiction pretty much ever. I just dable here and there. Grew up on Fantasy Books, Anime and Video games for my geekiness.

I *am* on the home stretch of a complete runthrough of all the Start Trek TV series though. TOS, TNG, DS9, WOY and now am about 7 episodes into Enterprise. This is by far, the most pure "Sci-Fi" geekiness I have shown. I am told I should next run through the Dr. Who episodes also available on Netflix.

/you people sound old :)
//Who's the chick with the big boobs?


That is Sylvia Howell (played by Georgina Moon) one of the Operators of SkyDiver, a jet-airplane-launching submarine - one of the vehicles SHADO uses to defend us from yoo-foes.

Indeed, they even had green haired warrior slave chick from Gamesters of Triskelion right at the top of the page. Trashy hotness achieved!

(much respect would have been given for Orion Slave Girl Marta/Batgirl/Yvonne Craig too)

Never noticed before how much he looks like Ray Liotta.


Back in the 90s I was obsessed with getting Liotta cast as Pike, but alas they wouldn't relaunch shiat until a decade later and Liotta had put on some weight. And the dude they cast as the new Pike doesn't look a thing/act a thing like the old one.

Yeoman Colt, just because

You'd think with a name like "Yeoman Colt" there'd be a Pony version of her, but no dice. I did find this, though ...

That is actually pretty cool.

Is her name Nichelle Nickers?

/sorry

ID rather her name be Michelle NoNickers, if you know what I mean, and I think you do...

Fixed.


Or both, at least according to this from Memory Alpha, the self described "Star Trek Wiki":

■Gene Roddenberry saw the movie three days before he died. According to William Shatner's Star Trek Movie Memories, Roddenberry, after seeing the film, gave thumbs up all around, and then went back and phoned his lawyer, angrily demanding a full quarter-hour of the film's more militaristic moments be removed from the film, but Gene died before his lawyer could present his demands to the studio.

DjangoStonereaver: Mega Steve: Mugato: For such an apparent pervert, Roddenberry was pretty pissed off when Kim Catrall (yes, she was hot at some point) did a nude photo shoot on the bridge.

Roddenberry used to pull in the tail like nobody's business. Maybe he made a move on Catrall, she turned him down, and his poor ego was bruised

Between the end of TOS and the beginning of TNG, Roddenberry started believing that he was some
sort of prophet and that STAR TREK was more than just a sci fi adventure show.

However, according to Wikipedia:

Cinefantastique reported that during filming, Cattrall participated in a photo shoot on the empty Enterprise bridge, where she wore nothing but her Vulcan ears. The story claimed Nimoy personally ripped up all of the photographs and negatives when he learned about the unauthorized photo session, because he feared harm to the franchise if it ever came to light.

Though not specifically stated, it must have been Nimoy taking the pictures, as he came out with a book
of nude photography a couple of years ago.


It was supposedly Cattrall's own photographer whom she allowed to trespass on the set. Nimoy was executive producer on that film and in that situation of destroying the photos acted in the capacity of responsible adult with temporary guardianship of the franchise.

Roddenberry, after he produced the first film, was reduced to "executive consultant" which kept him informed about the films and let him make suggestions, but he didn't have creative control and couldn't fire anybody, so he wouldn't have had anything to do with this.
