"Can Gene Roddenberry Learn Anything From Terry Nation" by Edi Bjorklund - video
Edi Bjorklund's 20 minute academic talk - "Can Gene Roddenberry Learn Anything From Terry Nation"

Around 1987 Edi made this tape of her talk and sent it to me to illustrate with video, leaving black gaps at the time for her to use to catch up if she spoke too fast or too slow.  Over the last weeks I've filled in all the gaps and updated the images.  There was little I could do with the very old audio.  It's very pro Blakes 7 as I had just seduced her into the fandom, to the Nome editor's everlasting dismay.

Edi died in 2005, years after she suffered a massive stroke that stopped her from working or creating in fandom as Flora Poste.  I've wanted to do this forever in order to honor her, and I am just so pleased to have finally gotten it done.

I'm next going through some of my old convention tapes to see if I've got anything useful, like the original of Paul Darrow in our room sending a message to Gareth Thomas.  I can't find it right now but I have an original tape taken at the Trek crew's introduction into the NAB Hall of Fame.  Mostly scenes of them chewing, but I will search again.

Best, Mary

I'm finally putting my Star Trek fanvids up on YouTube
Realizing that the copyright holders are now monetized makes me feel much safer about putting up my music videos, so I've put Star Trek videos.  More are up on my website.  As I'm doing this, I'm saving old projects and creating best existing copies for videos that haven't been up on my site in many years.  You may find there are vids available here that you haven't seen for 30 years.  Some are blocked and if there's any blockage I take them down immediately.  Some I'm still working thru, so expect more to appear in the next few days.  Good memories.  And I'm still working in Deep Space 9.  There are a couple more new videos there.

The full YouTube channel for Star Trek videos is:

Hope you enjoy them.   Best, Mary

President Obama meets the Doctor meets Captain Kirk (multicrossover)
Today's story was inspired by President Obama talking about Star Trek recently. I thought he might want to meet his hero!
Please find some more detailed pictures and close-ups behind the cut.
