But will Home Depot be selling Warp Drives by then, or will the budget limit the prototype to Impulse Engines and the speed of light?
Bulletin: Marc Cushman says that his upcoming Star Trek book, "THESE ARE THE VOYAGES" is going to be released in three volumes, one for each season. Book One, covering the making of the two pilots and the 28 additional episodes from Season One is planned for a summer release. Book Two, covering Season Two, is scheduled for early fall. Book Three, all about the Third Year of the original Star Trek, is promised to be out before Christmas.
Each 400 page book will devote ten or more pages to each episode, taking us from the pitch to the story to the script to the casting to the filming to the editing and optical effects to the first airing, with reviews from that time; Nielsen ratings, fan letters, and recollections from those involved.
At the end of this month, January 2012, Marc Cushman expects to announce a hard date for publishing THESE ARE THE VOYAGES: Vol. #1, his detailed behind the scenes, study of the making of Star Trek - TOS. His editor is contacting Paramount and negotiating for photographs and other support. So check back here at the end of January.

Fortunately for me, the TOS episode "Courtmartial" (in which I play Lt. Timothy) will be in the first volume. Stay tuned, things are breaking fast!

It's Alive!!! Pussywhipped001 lives! I got a car. Now I can get to Bill Kelly's edit studio in Burbank and we can fire up the machinery once again! It's been 7 months and 14 days since I woke to learn that two guys had plowed into my parked Beemer 2002 and destroyed it 100%, bringing our work almost to a standstill! That's the same Beemer we use in the movie also, so we have to find one just like it. Meanwhile, this $4500 VW Jetta will keep the show rolling, and Pearl White, who's been patiently waiting in the sewer (in full make-up yet!), can finally do her thing!! You'll definitely love her.
OK! Here it is folks! Marc's TARGET date for completing his manuscript. On Dec. 13th (his sister's birthday) Marc Cushman intends to complete: "The Mother of all Star Trek books" THESE ARE THE VOYAGES: An Episode-By-Episode History of The Original Star Trek. (From making the first pilot through filming the last TOS episode!) A 900 page time machine! TO BE COMPLETED DEC. 13TH! And then...
FUNDED AT LAST!
YES we got funded this week and finished the PUSSYWHIPPED 001 trailer!! Bill Kelly, the editor, posted it online last night at YouTube, windelugo.com and Vimeo. Check it out over there to the left.
“The Mother of all Star Trek books” THESE ARE THE VOYAGES: An Episode-By-Episode History of The Original Star Trek", was on hold while writer Marc Cushman fulfilled a directing commitment. He’s back now, flying at warp speed to hit his target date for completion to deliver the full manuscript in December! This 900 page book is a time machine: You will fly through hundreds of memos from the Star Trek files. Production schedules/ratings/photos and fan letters turn this book into a time machine taking the reader back to the years 1964 through 1969 (from making the first pilot through filming the last TOS episode)!
Congratulations Star Trek TOS 45th Anniversary on September 8th, 2011!!
What REALLY happened!: A friend emailed to ask if I’d lost interest my new short, PUSSYWHIPPED 001, as he saw no movement on our site. HELL NO!!! On “The First Day of Spring”, 3/20/11 at 1:00am while I was home sleeping, 2 guys speeding in the rain, spun-out and crashed into my parked car…100% destroyed!!! The classic BMW 2002 seen in my film. Very difficult to replace.
Two police officers were passing, on the way to another call, about 1 minute after the crash and asked what happened. Both men said they lost control in the rain and spun-out (they destroyed 2 other cars also). After avoiding his insurance co. for a month, he told his State Farm that “A hit and run driver struck him from behind, causing the spin out…he no longer feared the police “almost” witnesses because he learned during his month hiding from State Farm (they left several messages, because I was calling them) that “Los Angeles” officers don’t write up reports unless there is a crime or someone’s hurt in the accident. Next door in Burbank, yes reports, LA no reports. Since their car spun around and hit mine backwards, the tail end is too crumpled to tell if it was hit by another car. Brilliant!
Now he’s got his story for State Farm. Result? They didn’t give me a dime. They said they had to accept the client’s story. Convenient, and it saves them money. I checked again with the Police and they said, “He made no mention of a hit and run driver.” So; we could not move ahead on Pussywhipped until I could get a car because Bill (the editor & 2nd camera) lives in Burbank, CA and I am in Brentwood, CA. with some mountains in between.
The good news is; I’ve just acquired funding and we get rolling as soon as I get a car! Perhaps next week!?!!???
