From The Archives: Star Trek Publicity Photos

These were stowed away in a random folder buried in my backup files. Apparently Past Chris had decided to write an article about them, but left no clues as to his thought process. I have to assume that the previous me was waiting for inspiration that never came. Well, Past Chris, your wait is over. Let’s get these published.

Leonard, by William Shatner

One year ago today we lost one hell of a guy.

Just reading this makes me proud to be a Star Trek fan.
