Talosians 12.11.64

Clapper scene start up of the Talosians under the surface of Talos IV from the filming of the first pilot The Cage for Star Trek. Later reworked in part into the TOS episodes The Menagerie Pts. 1 and 2.

Romulan Empire and Neutral Zone

The original filmed backlit panel of the neutral zone chart. This map was shown optically superimposed on the Enterprise bridge viewing screen in the TOS episode Balance of Terror and introduced the Trek world to the Romulan race, a group whose impact has touched Star Trek stories all the way forward (or is it backward?) to the new movie.

Knobs

Sherry Jackson as the android Andrea in the famous Bill Theiss costume, and the late Ted Cassidy as Ruk, from the TOS episode What Are Little Girls Made Of? A partial answer to that somewhat rhetorical question is pretty visible in Sherry's outfit in this beautifully posed shot. I guess the question answered in the picture may be more correctly stated as - what are big girls made of?

Taurus II Humanoid from Galileo Seven, Unshown View | Flickr

Taurus II Humanoid from Galileo Seven, Unshown View

On Taurus II, the Spock led crew of the shuttle craft debate the meritis of burying casualties versus making repairs to attempt an escape from the planet surface and the hostile giants that inhabit it. A Lost in Space type adventure with some Vulcan logic versus human emotion thrown in to the plot. This film clip scan is from an unshown head shot of the large humanoids that threatened and attacked the shuttle craft crew. From the TOS episode Galileo Seven.

Salt Vampire Attacks Kirk 6.24.66

The final climax of the TOS episode The Man Trap where the M-113 creature attacks Kirk and McCoy must phaser it (his hand holding the phaser is the out of focus object in the lower right portion of the shot). A clapper from the third take of this scene, set in Kirk's quarters.

The Obelisk 6.12.68

The asteroid deflector which opened at the sound of Kirk speaking into his communicator and triggered his loss of memory and marriage to a local on the planet inhabited by Native American type people in the TOS episode The Paradise Syndrome. OK, I know a lot of people did not like this one....but the obelisk is kind of cool, this is a clapper, and Nimoy is looking down finding his mark for filming the scene. The asteroid is coming....

Kara Does Belly Dance on Argelius II (unshown take)

Tanya Lemani, an Iranian born Russian who moved to the US and began a dancing career in Las Vegas that led her eventually to Hollywood, played the Argelius belly dancer Kara. Her dance is from the opening teaser of the TOS episode Wolf In the Fold. Though her character was stabbed and dead before the theme and credits, Tanya's appearance in this single episode is memorable for TOS fans. William Shatner is quoted as having said to Tanya, "you dance as if you are having an orgasm." There were…

The Creator and The Talosians

A 1964 on set picture of Gene Roddenberry and three Talosians including the Keeper (center), played by the late Meg Wyllie. The casting of smaller women and then the deep voicing of their characters by men was meant to lend an unworldy quality to the Talosians. The difference between Gene's 6 foot height and the three ladies' average less than 5 foot height is obvious in this shot. This shot was taken in December 1964 during filming of the first pilot, The Cage. The Talosians were shown in…

Romulan Kiss ? (unshown shot)

Joanne Linville, shown on the bridge of the Enterprise in the role of the Romulan Commander from the TOS episode The Enterprise Incident. This is a discarded, possibly blooper shot of Joanne puckering up on the bridge, maybe a kiss off to Spock before she knew he would escort her to her quarters? We may never know, but as the first female Romulan Joanne did a great job and had beautiful .... ears.

Melkotian Head: Production Shot

The studio shot of the multi-color illuminated, shining eyed Melkotian head ( in fact a stuffed rubber skin like a Halloween mask). This shot was superimposed into the star field for the Melkotian talking in space effect. The head was also shot in smoke for another appearance in the show. From the TOS episode Spectre of the Gun

Vina's Sensuous Dance (unshown pose)

An unshown part of the Orion slave dance illusion from The Cage pilot. This pose and sequence was neither shown in the pilot reel nor the subsequent portions shown in The Menagerie. They involved a series of sensual, almost animal like crouching moves emphasizing the wilder side of the character. Note the long nails! Some have drawn parallels between the dance sequence and the movements of a cat (indeed in the original Rodenberry scrip Vina snarls at the servants and has to be controlled by…

Original Second Pilot Title Shot: Where No Man Has Gone Before (unshown in episode)

This is the title from the original second pilot reel as presented by Gene Roddenberry to NBC. When an edited version of this story was later incorporated as a first season episode the title was changed to the traditional yellow text and shown over a shot of the Enterprise in space. Also several other scenes were deleted to shorten the episode. The use of this phrase, where no man has gone before, was as yet not contemplated as an introduction to the series, which had not yet been sold.

Test Shot of Fully Lit Guardian of Forever on Soundstage

This shot shows the soundstage with the Guardian of Forever from the TOS episode City On the Edge of Forever. Visible are all of the lights in the guardian, the forced perspective showing the small, close though meant to look far away columned structure in the back, the roof of the soundstage on the upper left, and considerrable detail on the surface of the guardian itself including the small red splatter dots on the left and right side which I always thought were image defects but clearly…

Just Watch the Nails, Honey!

Another unused shot from the various sensuous dance moves executed by Susan Oliver as Vina for the illusion sequence from the original filming of the first pilot, The Cage. In this shot the band and instruments can be seen in the background, and most obvious here are the long and (of course) green nails both shadowed and reflected in the stairs and floor below.

Makeup Being Applied to Disfigured Pike

Sean Kenney has makeup applied to his face in order to portray the disfigured and paralyzed Captain Pike for the "wrap" story The Menagerie used in the first season of Star Trek TOS. Could this be the hand of Fred Phillips applying the makeup?

The Fencing Referee

Three stagehands prepare the actors, Klingon and Federation alike, for swordplay in the third season TOS episode Day of the Dove.

United Colors of Beaming: An Unused Pilot Transporter Effect

Many visual effects were evaluated before deciding on the final shimmer asssoicated with the transporter beaming process. This was the most colorful, showing what ultimately was a discarded effect using multiple, different color fills for each person within a red outline being "beamed" out or in via a shimmering column. This shot is the surface of Talos IV and the scene is the original beam down moment for Pike and landing party from the Enterprise. This effect was judged too garish and…

The World is Black, The World is White

Bele and Lokai battle on the bridge towards the end of their journey to Cheron in the TOS episode Let That Be Your Last Battlefield. A relatively simple plot inteded to underscore the absurdity of race relations and the potential for conflict taken to extreme to annihilate a world. This special effect, drawn in after the filming of the scene, is similar though a bit different than the final optical effect used in the actual show.

Materializing on Rigel XII

A shot from the transporter beaming optical effect from the TOS episode Mudd's Women with an original etched note in the film. In this shot the ceiling of the soundstage is visible, and etched into the film at the left side are arrows facing each other (in addiiton to the letters 503AH), perhaps indicating that the field would have to be reduced to avoid seeing the ceiling.

Eve Plays Double Jack 6.10.66

The late Karen Steele playing the role of Eve McHuron in the TOS episode Mudd's Women. This scene shows round playing cards which actually appeared multiple times in the series. Here Eve is playing in Ben Childress' hut on the surface of Rigel XII. Mudd's Women was one of the three stories written for consideration as the second pilot along with The Omega Glory and the selected Where No Man Has Gone Before. Counsel given to Roddenberry at the time, after the rejection of the exotic first…

Vina in Orion Dance Illusion 12.4.64

A clapper from the filming of the first piloit setting up Vina's dance. Susan Oliver's expression, nails, and one of the band members make this an interesting and historical shot from one of the iconic early TOS moments. From The Cage.

Dehner and Mitchell with New Powers

Sally Kellerman and Gary Lockwood wearing the sparkling contact lenses. The eyes indicated their special powers resulting from their high ESP ratings being catalyzed at the energy barrier at the edge of the galaxy. From the TOS second pilot Where No Man Has Gone Before.
