Welcome To My Second Trek Scrapbook!

If you came here from there, you are already familiar with the original "My Star Trek Scrapbook" blog, which displays material from my collection about the original series cast TV show and movies. (If you are not familiar with it, be sure to visit it soon!)

Well, by "popular demand," I have begun another blog, this time devoted to the material I've collected over the years from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and the subsequent spinoffs. I won't say that I love these shows to the same intense degree as I do the original series and cast; but I have enjoyed them greatly, TNG in particular, (being the first return of some form of Star Trek to TV as it was) and I do have quite a bit of stuff to share. Again, not as much as the TOS items, but what I have, I want you to enjoy.

The question of "why a Scrapbook 2?" has been raised by an esteemed visitor, who asked "Isn't it all Star Trek?" In answer, I explained it this way; I keep the various shows organized in separate scrapbook binders in my collection, so why not do it on the blogs that way? The original blog was so oriented to TOS, with all the graphics and such, that it would dilute the focus by bringing in all the later versions. I thought it best to feature the spinoffs in their own blog, which you are now reading.

This first post features some publicity photos from the Next Generation newspaper press kit. Hope you like all the photos, articles, and other items I plan to post in days to come!

  1. Congratulations on the start of your second blog, Frederick. I can't wait to see what you've got in your collection!

  2. Great idea doing this second blog. Even though of course, we all know that TOS rules and TNG drools ;-)

    Nonetheless I will follow both of these avidly you can be sure!

  3. Rob and Anon;
    Thanks for the comment! I'm sure it will be a more sedate and sophisticated ride than the TOS blog, but fun nevertheless!
