How many of that original crew line up are still alive?

Only three: Captain Kirk (William Shatner); Chief Communications Officer, Lt. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols); and helmsman, Lt. Sulu (George Takei).

Blue Witch said...

Gosh. Did you know that are did you have to look it up?

la peregrina said...

I knew Shanter, Nichols and Takei were alive but had to check on the others.

Shanter does TV commericals:

Nichols just flew in sub-space

And Takei is big on facebook with 9,011,606 likes:

You can't have your 'I'm a Star Trekkie' badge quite yet then :)

Ah, the future after Star Trek.

Walter Koenig (Chekov) is still alive too!

[Hi--we haven't met--I'm just a fan of Star Trek (and many other things) leapfrogging around Blogger.)

P.S. Oh, yes---and I walked to Santiago too (twice, actually---in 2001 and 2011). Ultreia!

Hi, Fresca, I did not know Walter Koenig was alive. I guess I haven't earned my Star Trek badge. ;)

Congratulations on walking the Camino twice. I was there in 2001, too, and I envy you since I dream of going back.
