From the Winter Annual special sci-fi-oriented "Rona Barrett's Hollywood" magazine, comes this article about the new movie, which was still a year away. While most of the write-ups were in the "gossip-tabloid" style, focusing on the cast friction of the various shows and such, the Trek article was pretty straight-forward with accurate facts. Not enough was known about the friction between certain cast members at the time to make for juicy gossip like we get now.
Bonus: scanned from the 1997 ST:TOS calendar.
"Well, Spock... lots of kids wet their bed when under stress. It's nothing to be ashamed of now."
Since around 1971, when I was first bitten by the Star Trek bug, I have been collecting all sorts of items for my scrapbooks; photos, articles, ads, and more. I hope you join me often on this fun and nostalgic look back, as I share them with you, one at a time. It's a "phaser blast from the past!"

Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
