Apparently, archery is something William Shatner did while not needed on the set.

The day that TOMB OF DRACULA and STAR TREK crossed the streams. Dig how it’s the Gene Colan version with the cape and pencil moustache. Unsurprising since Marv Wolfman wrote both that one and this one.

    Happy Birthday, Dr. Mae Jemison! (October 17)

    Mae Jemison was the first black woman to travel in space, part of the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 1992. Jemison has always had a connection to the arts, particularly dance and theatre, but of course she’s most noted for her scientific career.

    Jemison entered Stanford at age 16, where she studied chemical engineering. Of her time there, Jemison has observed:

    Some professors would just pretend I wasn’t there. I would ask a question and a professor would act as if it was just so dumb, the dumbest question he had ever heard. Then, when a white guy would ask the same question, the professor would say, “That’s a very astute observation.’”

    She received her doctorate of medicine from Cornell in 1981 and served as a Peace Corps Medical Officer from 1983 to 1985. She was admitted into the astronaut training program in 1987 and finally went into space in 1992.

    After leaving NASA in 1993 to found her own technology company, she got a chance to appear on Star Trek: The Next Generation’s “Second Chances” as Ensign Palmer. She was contacted by a mutual friend of hers and LeVar Burton’s, who told him about how much Jemison loved the show.

    This made her the first real astronaut to appear on Trek, but it wasn’t her first interaction with Trek stars. Before going on the Endeavour in 1992 she called Nichelle Nichols to thank her for inspiring her as a child, and she promised that, in tribute, she would begin each shift by saying, “Hailing frequencies open.”

    She got a chance to meet Nichelle again on the set of TNG (pictured above).

    In 1996 she was interviewed in Stanford Today and said she feels responsibility to help pass on the kind of inspiration she got from role models like Nichelle Nichols/Uhura:

    “Public figures can be images..Images of what other folks can be or how they might live their lives.”

    Nichelle Nichols on meeting Martin Luther King jr. 

    "I said "I’m going to leave Star Trek because (I was going to say ‘because  I have an offer to star in) …I never got that far”  

    He said "You cannot - you cannot"

    and I felt like that little boy Willis "What you talkin’ about dr. king"

    (laughs) "But you know I didn’t say that"  

    "But I was taken aback, and I didn’t say anything, I just looked at him"

    He said "Don’t you know understand what this man [Gene] has achieved?"

    "I just looked at him" and he saidFor the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen every day – as intelligent, quality, beautiful people who can sing, dance, but who can also go into space, who can be lawyers, who can be teachers, who can be professors - who ARE on this day, and yet you don’t see it on television – until now…

    "and he went on and I could say nothing, I just stood there, realizing every word that he was saying was the truth"

    "and he said, “Gene Roddenberry has opened a door for the world to see us. If you leave that door can be closed. You see your role is not a black role, and it’s not a female role, he can fill it with anything - including an alien"

    "And in that moment the world tilted for me, and I knew then, that I was something else, that the world was not the same. That’s all I could think of, what dr. king said ‘the world sees us as we should be seen’ “and i remember being angry come sunday. “Why me? Why should I have to?…

    "Whatever happened come monday morning I went to Gene, and I’m not sure to this day what I was going to say. He’s sitting behind that same dang desk and he had whoever he was talking to leave because I went there first. And I said “Gene, and I told him what happened" and I told him “If you still want me to stay, I’ll stay - I have to" and he opened his drawer and said “God bless dr. martin luther king, somebody knows where I’m coming from" and he took out my resignation — that was torn into a hundred pieces  and handed me the pile, and we just stood there looking at each other, and I finally said “Thank you, Gene, and he said “Thank you, Nichelle"

    "And my life’s never been the  same since, I’ve never looked back, I’ve never regretted it. Because I understood the universe had somehow put me there, and we have choices - are we gonna walk down this road? are we gonna walk the other..and it was the right road for me"
