Data Feed: Shatner On History Channel's "American Pickers"

We're not exactly sure how this slipped passed our radar, but it would seem that The Shat was on last night's episode of "American Pickers". Not familiar with the show? "American Pickers" follows the exploits of Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. If you think the antique business is all about upscale boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind--and teach you a thing or two about American history along the way.

Data Feed: Captain Picard Visits From The Future To Order A Filet O'Fish

Spending time on Youtube has become an unfortunate pastime for us lately. We say unfortunate, but occasionally you find a few diamonds in the rough. For instance, Captain Jean Luc Picard visits the 21st century to satiate his hunger for greasy fast food.

"The second drive-thru window; the first portal to a new dimension. One greater, one more wondrous than our own." - Captain Jean Luc Picard

In all seriousness though, this video started off kinda slow, but we actually laughed out loud, or LOL'd as the kids like to call it. Check out the embedded video below.

Data Feed: Happy Birthday To Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Aron Eisenberg

We’d like to wish Aron Eisenberg a very Happy Birthday today, as he turns 42. All of you reading this remember him as Nog, everyone’s favorite teenage Ferengi on Deep Space Nine. Without Aron, one of our favorite DS9 episodes, It’s Only a Paper Moon, wouldn’t exist. Anytime we’re feeling down (and even sometimes when we’re not) we watch that episode and it cheers us right up. So we here at Subspace Communique are especially grateful that Aron shared his talent with all of us while on DS9.

Currently he’s the owner of Reel Life Pictures a photography and videography company in Southern California that specializes in weddings and events productions. If you’re able, take a moment and visit his site. The images are beautiful.

Happy Birthday Aron! Thanks so much for entertaining us and lifting our spirits on Deep Space Nine.

Data Feed: Happy Birthday To Star Trek's Own Nichelle Nichols

It would seem that December is rife with Star Trek birthdays. Today is the birthday of our lovely Lt. Uhura, Star Trek's own Nichelle Nichols. Before joining the crew of the Enterprise in 1966, Nichelle was an accomplished theatrical actress and singer, touring with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton. As we reported earlier this year, she originally saw "Star Trek" as a way to further her career on Broadway.

"It was rather interesting to me to be cast on the show, because I came up in musical theater," Nichelle said. "And somehow I was, like, really on my way to break through and do all of the things that I really wanted to do on Broadway. And I took 'Star Trek' because I thought it would be a nice adjunct to my resume and I'd get to Broadway quicker and as a star. And, I still think that way, but 'Star Trek' interrupted my career."

"I kind of got stuck there," She said. "As a matter of fact, I even tried to leave after the first season, because I thought, 'Oh, this is going nowhere for me."

It seems that all you need is an air compressor, sliding door accessories, pneumatic tubes and hoses, and some know-how and you're set. So, maybe you'll need a few more things than that, but still amazingly cool and trek-tastic none-the-less.
