Top o’ the Lot: The Invaluable Wisdom of Mr. Spock

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

We’re still mourning the loss of the great Leonard Nimoy here at Outright Geekery, and it’s been a tough week. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I simply would not be the same geek I am today without his influence, and I think it’s safe to say that there are many geeks around the globe who share those feelings. I wasn’t sure at first exactly how to go about honoring such a legend with a post. Star_Trek_TOS_logo.svgIt’s impossible to sum up such a meaningful life in a single article. After giving it some thought, however, I decided that the most appropriate way for me to honor a man who was so very important to me is to write about the very thing that made him so important. His role as the unemotional Vulcan, Spock, had a defining influence on my life due to the character’s unwavering logic. This logic encompassed the character of Spock, and that Vulcan has taught me many Spock6lessons. He’s been an example for me as far back as I can remember, and there’s no better way to celebrate the logical wisdom of Spock than by using his own words. So, without further ado, there is no logic in crying, emotions are illogical, and “thank you so much, sir”, as we celebrate the man in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: The Invaluable Wisdom of Mr. Spock.

Live Long And Prosper

Leonard Nimoy

Mr. Spock

March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015

So, hello to all and please bear with me as I take a moment to gain my bearings, and please forgive any errors as I am still processing and learning. I had intended to begin my first blogs to intro an exploration of the women of the comic universe, but alas, there is a sadness that begs me to speak on another topic for this first blog. The loss of a legend, Leonard Nimoy. Continue reading Live Long And Prosper

Eaglemoss Shows Off New Additions to ‘Star Trek’ Starships Collection

I’m a big fan of these replica Star Trek Starships from Eaglemoss. I started with the Enterprise-D last year, and Eaglemoss has unveiled the 40th-48th installment of the Official Starships Collection though their official blog, Herocollector. There’s a couple of head-scratchers, some must-haves, and a surprise or two that I just cannot wait to get my hands on. See the entire Starship collection from Eaglemoss. More after the fold, ENGAGE!

Review: Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive #1

What seemed like a joke when it was announced at SDCC 2014, finally debuted this week, as Kirk and the Enterprise crew of Star Trek: TOS crossover with Cornelius, Dr. Zaius, and “Take your paws off me” himself George Taylor of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes film in the team-up that no one expected. While there’s a few things that simply baffle me about even the notion of this crossover, it makes pretty good sense when you really think about, is a solid precedent for more great mash-ups, and issue #1 of the series turned out to be a surprisingly well delivered story with solid art.

Star_Trek_TOS_logo.svgFollowing up on last week’s holiday wish list of Star Wars LEGO sets, I decided to stick with toys and stay in space with this week’s list, but instead of a Galaxy Far Far Away we’re Boldly Going Where No One Has Gone Before. So, without further ado, it’s games, models, statues, and more, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot:
