    Thank goodness NBC didn't have the last word on that!

    Mr. mm told me an interesting factoid about DesiLu the other day. The NBC execs rejected the original Star Trek pilot The Cage (which was later made into a 2-part episode), but Lucille Ball was so sure it would be a hit that she offered to personally pay for all the production costs. NBC let Rodenberry make a second pilot with a mostly new cast. And the rest, as they say, is history.

    I only learned about that myself very recently, via all the 50th Anniversary Tweets on Twitter. With Lucy's tremendous knowledge and experience in television and television audiences, she obviously saw something potentially special about STAR TREK -- and the rest is, indeed, history. I also heard the interesting fact that with I LOVE LUCY having been broadcast worldwide continuously since the 1950s, Lucy's face has been seen by more people in the world than the face of any other woman in history. Maybe any other person in history. A remarkable woman.

    C.S.Forester based his character Captain Horatio Hornblower ( the books and the original movie with gregory peck are best) on Admiral Lord Nelson and his defeat of the Spanish (and French) armada at Trafalger. One of Britain's greatest sea victories. Gene Roddenberry based Kirk on Hornblower. Been a Trekker since the beginning. I suppose Cons were my warm-ups to being a MKFer and going to Nationals and following the tour all over the country. I have the pictures and the autographs from OST and STNG to prove it! If you haven't read the Hornblower books, check them out.

    I've never been to an conventions, but my niece has an autographed picture of Nichelle Nichols as Lieutenant Uhura that she got at Comicon in her dining room. I'm so jealous. I love her story about how Dr. Martin Luther King persuaded her to stay on the series when she was thinking about quitting.
