This is the Eaglemoss XL size model of the Klingon Bird of Prey
Some pics of the Eaglemoss NX-01 Enterprise model.
This is an Eaglemoss model of the Viper Mark I starfighter from the original Battlestar Galactica TV series. When I was a kid, I doodled this spaceship countless times in the margins of my notebooks. Now I have a faithful reproduction of it sitting on my shelf.
A series of pictures from the Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty exhibit at the 2019 Star Trek convention in Las Vegas, as part of the promotional push for the upcoming Star Trek: Picard show. The exhibit’s conceit is that these are items curated by Starfleet celebrating Admiral Picard’s career.
While most of the props are reproductions (the originals lost or auctioned off years ago), the uniforms on display were all costumes worn on screen by Patrick Stewart.

For the past few years, we’ve gone to Vegas for vacation, which just happens to coincide with the big Star Trek convention held annually at the Rio. Shortly after William Shatner’s panel on Saturday, the host advised that everyone would want to stay in the room for a big announcement. Alex Kurtzman emerged soon after, and after a brief preamble about Trek’s future on TV, he announced a new show focused on Captain Picard starring Patrick Stewart. Stewart emerged, and well, here you go…
A Juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) at the Upland Hills Country Club golf course. Taken at the pond near the 4th tee box area.
Though these birds are common around wetland areas in North America, this is the first one I’ve seen in our neck of the woods. I’m not sure where this juvenile came from, as there were no signs of any others in the area. He disappeared the next day.
B-25J 43-28204 “Pacific Princess” — This beautiful and well-maintained aircraft only saw wartime action in the movies (Catch-22, 1941, Pearl Harbor), but served as a firefighting aircraft in the 1950s. She also launched from the deck of the USS Carl Vinson in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of WWII’s end.
