[001-068] Star Trek TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver"
[069-072] Star Trek TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver" quote icons

Um, hi? It's been almost a year since I last posted icons - or participated in fandom at all, for that matter. It seems a little strange to return with a batch from one of my least favourite episodes, but that's how these things work out sometimes.

Icons: Star Trek TOS (The Naked Time)

[001-065] Star Trek TOS: "The Naked Time"
[066-076] Star Trek TOS: "The Naked Time" quote icons

Part two of two. Next up will be one of my least favourite episodes, so I promise the batch will be much smaller ;)

Book: Star Trek: The New Voyages

The Book: Star Trek: The New Voyages, edited by Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath

The Review: This is a collection of short stories written by fans that was professionally published with a foreword by Gene Roddenberry and individual story introductions written by the TOS cast members. The quality is a bit up and down, but the better pieces are well worth a read, and not only for the enormous amounts of slashy content that made it into publication :D

The Fannish Stuff: I just can't get past how fantastic it is that the Trek folk embraced fandom and fanfiction in this way. As someone who has been involved with fandom for over a decade but who came to the Trek fandom extremely late, it's hard to believe that this precedent was set right back in the beginning and thoroughly ignored by so many copyright holders ever since. Fandom makes money, not takes money, and it's about time that this message should sink in.

Individual Stories – Spoilers IncludedCollapse )

Icons: Star Trek TOS (The Naked Time)

[001-076] Star Trek TOS: "The Naked Time"

Part one of two - I love this episode so much that I ended up with FAR too many icons *g*

Icons: Where No Man Has Gone Before

[001-064] Star Trek TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before"
[065-068] Star Trek TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" - quotes

The colouring and lighting in this episode is quite different (and rather less attractive) than that of the rest of the series. Still, I guess it makes these look appropriately 1960s ;)

(A post on the K/S comm reminded me that I'd meant to post this yonks ago.)

The Book: Star Trek Academy: Collision Course, by William Shatner with Judith Reeves-Stevens and Garfield Reeves-Stevens

The Review: I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much from this, but I ended up really enjoying it. Not so sure about the whole "Stretch" thing, but it was a believable enough take on teenage!Jim and teenage!Spock, with an interesting story to tie it all together.

The Fannish Stuff: Good exploration of a possible beginning to Kirk and Spock's friendship. There's not much slashiness here, but they are only seventeen and nineteen respectively. The key is really the development over the book of their understanding of each other, with the visible beginning of the way they'd later complement each other perfectly.
