Two versions: The "original" and the version sung by me, which I translated into Vulcan.

Mesukh Vuhlkansu Panu T'Spock - Spock's World Vulcan Translation
Mask
t_laina
Diane Duane's novel, "Spock's World", is one of my all-time favorites. Not only it a great story involving Spock, Sarek, and Amanda (and the rest of the Enterprise crew), but through alternating chapters the reader also gains insight into Vulcan history - from the planet's conception to the life of Surak.

I felt that the sixth "Vulcan" chapter - depicting the life of Surak - deserved to be translated into Vulcan. I have spent last while translating the first part of the chapter...

While I was at Comic Con, I came across a table that was selling Playmates figures - four for twenty dollars. After running around trying to find an ATM, I was finally able to get the very four that I had wanted. I took some pictures of the details:

I found these Star Trek mugs at a thrift store a while ago, but I couldn't get them and they were in terrible shape:

They will be mine. One day, they will be mine.

My name is T'Laina and I run the blog Vibrant Oxymoron. I started vlogging, and I talk about Star Trek a lot.

If you want to see something on my vlog, have any suggestions, or want me to answer a question (Star Trek related... or Doctor Who), just leave me a message or comment - either here or on my blog.

Vlog #1
Where I talk about TOS: the Galileo Seven and Introduce myself
Vlog #2
Where I answer some basic Trekkie questions and have mice running around on my shoulders.

C4 Comic Con - William Shatner - Photos and Video
Mask
t_laina
One of my favorite parts of Comic Con was seeing William Shatner again. I got in line right away, so I could get as close to the front as I could - fortunately, there was an empty seat in the first row. We had to sit the room for an hour before the show, so I conversed with some of the people I was sitting with. We talked about Star Trek and Doctor Who, and watched Night Court (with Brent Spiner as Bob Wheeler) on somebody's iPhone.

Aaaanyways, he finally came on and I took a TON of video and some pics, which you may view here:

Jonathan Frakes at C4 Comic Con!
Mask
t_laina
One of the special guests at the Central Canadian Comic Con (C4) was Jonathan Frakes, best known by Sci-Fi fans as Commander William T. Riker of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I took a lot of pictures, but as there was no video allowed, I had to depend on my terrible note-taking skills for quotes.

Pics and quotes here:

Video and Pics from the Shatner Show!

A couple of days ago I had the privilege of seeing William Shatner's show, "How Time Flies", from the ninth row. As soon as he walked out onto the stage, I swear my heart stopped. I could feel it. The show lasted about three hours, and was absolutely amazing.
