The Concert was in Landau, Germany. The Band is the Symphonic Wind Band of Landau (Community Band).
The crafting site Etsy often has interesting home-made Star Trek items, but this one is especially impressive. Barry Shields from Tennessee is offering a coffee table shaped like the USS Enterprise C (from Star Trek: TNG’s “Yesterday’s Enterprise), carved from ash, poplar and cherry wood.
No idea why he chose to do the Enterprise-C, she was only seen in a couple episodes of TNG, and was ultimately destroyed by the Romulans…
In the Star Trek universe created by Gene Roddenberry, there are a myriad of iconic images many people remember: Green Orion slave girls, the Borg, phasers, heroes, villains, and that big-headed alien that Clint Howard pretends to be that shows up at the end of the credits of the original series, and more. But take anyone off the street, and odds are they can identify at least one incarnation of the USS Enterprise. Starships have long been one of the easily recognizable parts of Star Trek lore; while Roddenbery’s vision of the future was for the most part peaceful, with brains far exceeding brawn, not all conflict could be resolved by hugging it out.
lots of videos, and I whole heartedly disagree with #1 (and it seems like the guy at TR has no idea WHY it’s so damn powerful), but this list actually reminded me that I missed a couple dozen ENTERPRISE episodes, one of which apparently took place in the Mirror Mirror verse, which reminds me, all the trek episodes are on Netflix… though none of the movies are, wtf.
After watching the entire TNG series on Netflix, I’m actually pretty interested in this higher quality, because let’s be honest, the current offerings are horrible looking. Not sure I’d be willing to pay money for just three episodes though.
On a distant planet, Data discovers the body of Lt. Tasha Yar, a former crew-member thought to be dead. While some of the crew are happy to see their lost comrade, others remain skeptical of her intentions. The appearance of a Romulan Warbird increases panic, and the Enterprise finds itself under attack from outside and within. Impending danger evokes lustful desires, as the crew turns to each other for comfort. Data and Tasha Yar rekindle their old flame, Troi and Riker put the Holodeck to use, and Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher finally have their moment of passion.
