Big Hero 6

IMG_0057.JPG We just saw Big Hero 6. There is a little Star Trek in everything. Zefram Cochrane himself, James Cromwell played Robert Callaghan. Also Alan Tudyk was in it too. Very good story and great 3D. Check it out.

Starship Farragut

A must watch…

from …

STAR TREK began its voyage into the final frontier over forty years ago. Starship Farragut continues Gene Roddenberry’s legacy with llive-action, animated, and comic book adventures. We have assembled Star Trek alum and key entertainment industry professionals to help us provide quality, Classic Trek…NOW!

Principal cast for Starship Farragut includes John Broughton, Michael Bednar, and Holly Bednar. Hollywood entertainment professionals who have guest starring roles include Chris Doohan, Chase Masterson, Tim Russ, Vic Mignogna, Todd Haberkorn, Kurt Carley, Gina Hernandez and Cheralyn Lambeth. Together with a dedicated, professional crew staff, we continue to produce original stories based on the frame work of The Original Series of Star Trek. Damn the Torpedoes, Warp Speed Ahead!

Phaser Blast from the past

The first few Star Trek movies and some episodes were put out in this format. Capacitance Electronic Disc or CED.
The Capacitance Electronic Disc (CED) is an analog video disc playback system developed by RCA, in which video and audio could be played back on a TV set using a special needle and high-density groove system similar to phonograph records.
Yes a movie on an LP basically.
As for quality, think the worst VHS tape quality plus it skips. But evolution has to start somewhere.





We went to dinner at The Outback in Fort Myers FL and while we were waiting, another couple had two sons and we noticed one of them was named Riker, Heather and I looked at each other and said that would be cool if he was named after William Riker. The kids were introducing themselves and heather introduced our daughter as Serenity, and the dad said “oh your daughter is in the cool names club too…” And that brought of the topic of cool Sci-Fi inspired names. Riker is a cool name.

DAY 15: My Star Trek Friends Are Joining Our Mission!



Df8d376b1cc8d3fdd321191f7e32637b h264 high


Good morning, y’all!

We’ve had two amazing weeks so far, and we’re on the way to reaching our first stretch goal of $5,000,000. But now, we’re getting to the hard part. Together, we met our first goal so fast that a lot of people think this project is already over!

But you know, and I know, that it isn’t true! Our cause matters as much as any project that’s ever been on Kickstarter. Between now and July 2, we still have the chance to help so many more children discover a love of reading.

For over thirty years, I’ve loved sharing stories with children and meeting families. That’s why our pledge rewards already include the chance to attend a few special live storytime events that we’re calling Reading Rainbow Live!

But if you grew up with Reading Rainbow, you might remember that I didn’t read most of the books on the television show: on each episode, a special guest joined me to read a book.

To keep us moving toward our next goal, I’ve enlisted some friends to join us.

READING RAINBOW LIVE… with the cast of Star Trek!

Starting today, at 2 PM PST, we’ll be adding new pledge rewards for four special Reading Rainbow Live! events, where I’d like you and your child to join me and some special guests:

Reading Rainbow Live! is a series of one-time-only events where I’m inviting you to bring your child and join us for a few hours. My friends and I will read from a few children’s books. We’ll all watch a classic episode of Reading Rainbow together, and everyone will go home with some special goodies. And afterward, there will also be a smaller Meet & Greet reception where a small number of families can join us to take photos, sign autographs and talk!

These are going to be truly special events, so I hope you and your child will come out and join us. (And remember, we’ll be reading childrens’ books — so please use at least one of your three tickets to bring a child along!)

We’ll release tickets in three rounds, starting with a few “Early Bird” discount tickets this afternoon at 2 PM PST. More will be available tomorrow at 11 AM PST, and a final round will be available on Friday at 1 PM PST.


That’s all for now. I’ll see you next time — and I hope to see you at Reading Rainbow Live!
