For their 44th issue, the official Star Trek magazine decided to have a bit of fun.  They created cover that pays tribute to the Gold Key “Star Trek” comics.  But it pays tribute not merely to those comics in general.  But to a very specific issue.

Vulcan Pub Needs Spock to Live Long and Prosper!

Posted in Movies, Television, Weird News with tags , , , , , , on May 15, 2009 by ghostradioworld


From Wales Online:

ENTERPRISING Vulcan pub campaigners are boldly going where no drinkers have gone before by calling on Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy to save their bar.

More than 100 people have signed a letter to the 78-year-old Mr Spock star asking him to beam the pub from the clutches of developers who want to knock down the Victorian building next month and replace it with a car park as part of the St David’s 2 development.

The Echo has also made several attempts to reach Mr Nimoy. A letter has also been sent to Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the new Star Trek film.

Each reads: “If you would put your name to our campaign it might help save our beloved bar. Please help!”

Brian Smart runs The Vulcan with his wife, landlady Elizabeth Smart.

Paraphrasing Vulcan greeting “Live long and prosper”, he said from behind the bar of the Adam Street alehouse: “Any form of outside help would be good. He is a celebrity and connected with Vulcans so it’s a good theme. I’m not a Trekkie, but I have seen everyone do the thing with their hands. And I’d tell him ‘Drink long and prosper’. I don’t know what I’d say to him if he came in though. I’d give him a free pint on the house.”

Celebrities James Dean Bradfield, Rhys Ifans, Neil Kinnock and Howard Marks have all backed calls for the pub to be saved. More than 6,000 people have signed a petition to get it listed.

Royal Mail manager Steve O’Connell is a regular at the pub, which was this week named Cardiff pub of the Year by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).

The 55-year-old, from Llanrumney, said: “It is a local that has got character. I have always enjoyed coming here. You are always made to feel welcome, it has got a great atmosphere. It’s a landmark in Cardiff and one of the few remaining traditional drinking pubs left. I think Leonard would like it here. I think he would call it ‘a quaint British pub’. I would say to him, ‘Save our heritage’.”

His wife, retired teaching aide Linda O’Connell, said: “I think if he were to support it financially he is going to have to pay a lot of money. They are not going to give it up easily.”

And so far they’re pretty damn good!

Cole Abius of Cinema Rejects says that “[Star Trek] showcases the brilliance of science fiction: building a universe that is different from our own and filling it with people that are just like us.”

Full review here.

While Neil Miller also of Cinema Rejects says, “…when it all comes down to it, the average moviegoer in America just wants to see a movie that is a shitload of fun — and that’s exactly what you’ll get with Star Trek.”

Full Review here.

Urban Cinefile says:  “The overall effect is sensational and the film is fully satisfying as a major entertainment.”

Timeout London says:  “But perhaps the best summary of the film comes from James T Kirk himself, dying on the side of a rock many decades later: ‘It was… fun’.”

Full review here.

And IGN UK says:  “This is simply a fantastic achievement from Abrams and Co.”

Full review here.

The reviews aren’t as nice about the villian or the film’s climax, but other than that they’re raves.
