Space: the final frontier.

In color!

"Ably assisted"? (Team Spock, here. Boston represent!)

Can you spot the discrepancy here?

Will never not be creepy...

One of my favorite parts of this series is its cultural diversity. I recognize that pikkewyntjie posted the Ebony cover with Nichelle Nichols a couple months ago, but I really wish I could have gotten to it first!

A most fascinating source.

I think in those days the very idea of a man having hair that was combed forward with a fringe was outrageous, and the only people in pop culture who had hair worn that way were the Beatles, as I recall. You look at any photo of men in the 50s, early 60s and the hair was uniformly combed back from the face.

Chekov most certainly had proper young-person Beatle hair.
Good point, suzycat! I had not thought of it that way. Sort of like calling any man with long hair a "hippie." (Heck, I still know people who do that!)
My man has super long hair, wears Berkies and enjoys the green. But he's applying to law school and he's so not crunchy so he's not lol
Shatner's hair was a perfect example of the hair of the time. As for Chekov, you are 100% correct. Interesting!
