Trekiversary #39


The first episode of Star Trek aired on September, 8, 1966.
I watched it with my Dad and we became instant fans.

Can you name the creature in the picture?

Nope, not an early Klingon. But thank you for bothering to comment. It seems like interest in Star Trek is at an all-time low.

I don't know, but I know I just watched the first half of Trekkies 2 and then turned it off because I found it sad and depressing. I thought the first Trekkies was funny, but the 2nd one lost me.

I have never watched Star Trek, but most of the guys I have ever dated loved it.

Wendy: I've never seen Trekkies 1 or 2 so I can't say much about them.

I like trek because of the great stories it tells. It's that simple.

And I am living proof that not all obsessed fans are pathetic losers who live in their parents' basements ... no really... some of us have lives!

The funny thing is, there is no correct answer to the question.

I've generally referred to it as "the salt creature," because it feeds off the salt of humans and other creatures.

The creature took on the form and identity of a human woman in the episode (whose name I forget), but that woman's name is not the creature's name. She was already dead by the time things got started.

There is a more specific answer than the salt vampire or the salt creature who took the form of Nancy Crater & other humans... Guess again.

I have CSR, but in trying to rack my brain I come up with Antropoid Ape?

No, wait, wrong episode (See, I do have CSR), M-113 creature. Yes I am a Star Trek nut. I love SCI-FI! Both Stargate series and the new Battlestar Galactica are awesome.

Wade, you are correct sir! M113 creature is the right answer.

BTW I like Stargate & BSG, but I don't know what CSR is... perhaps you can explain.

Boy did I flub that up! It was supposed to be CRS, Can't Remember S***. I guess I'm dyslexic too!
