I will admit that I've been admiring a plain old little yellow duck night light. Can't be a coincidence - now I must have it

William Shatner what a guy.

His own fight scenes. Watch Space Seed again and the fight with Khan in the engine room. Oh boy, the tricks our minds played on us when all we had was those small old tube TVs.

Harlan Ellison did write some creepy stuff. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. Eeeeeeee. Worms, thick & ropey. Bleech. I also recall him running with a street gang as a youth and writing about it. Been a long time. Good writer that's a improbable fit for TV. Might have to go revisit some of that.

He was the one who wrote Babylon 5 the first couple of seasons. Dark, dreary future is all he could see. I remember hearing him on an interview and he spent the whole time complaining about some stalker woman, really crazy woman did some strange things to his mail box. But he came off as a whiner, whined about his jobs etc. Not a fun interview like most sci fi authors.

I watched 2/3 of For the Love of Spock and there was an interesting explanation of the Vulcan hand gesture.
What is the origin of the Vulcan hand greeting in “Star Trek”? | Watch | The Take.

Shin (letter) - Wikipedia
Quick Answer: The famous Vulcan hand greeting in Star Trek was created by Leonard Nimoy. It is actually the physical representation of the Hebrew letter “shin,” and comes from a Jewish prayer ceremony Nimoy remembered witnessing as a child growing up in Boston with Yiddish-speaking grandparents.
