Mr. Spock found lying on curb in Culver City




I have been a Star Trek fan since day one. Through the decades I have loved all the variations and spinoffs of the show, some less than others.

One glorious moment of my life that I will never forget was sitting in Captain Kirk’s chair on the bridge of the Enterprise at Paramount Studios. I probably said something really original like, “Warp speed ahead, Mr. Sulu!”

Since the very first episode of the original series I have had a big crush on Mr. Spock. Not Leonard Nimoy, but the character he played. This has carried over to the “new” Mr. Spock on the latest reboot of the franchise.

So, a couple of weeks ago on one of my walks around the neighborhood I noticed these images stenciled on the sidewalk. Could it be? Yes, Mr. Spock himself.

And with the 2013 version of Star Trek being released in the US in just a couple of days (I can hardly contain my excitement at the thought of seeing Mr. Spock in 3D!) I thought I should share my find…

This stencil looks more like Zachary Quinto than Leonard Nimoy so I will go with that.

Maybe this isn’t even intended to be that famous Vulcan. Maybe it’s some random portrait, and to another passerby it would have an entirely different connotation.

But as far as I am concerned, Mr. Spock is lying on the curb in Culver City.

Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. Spock on the Curb ……reports on our Radio are of police being called to stop a fight between Sat Trek and Doctor Who fans at a Star Trek convention, so maybe Spock ended up in the gutter not just on the curb!!


  2. That is a shame…. people taking things so seriously… surely there are more weighty issues in the world to fight over (if fighting is indeed necessary) than fictional characters and worlds! People need to get real lives…. maybe they should try blogging!!!!!


  3. I’m a Star Trek fan myself! Right now I’m halfway season 5 from the Start Trek Voyager DVD Box set. Looking forward to the new Star Trek movie this summer…


    • I’m doing my best not to read reviews of the Star Trek movie as I have other things to do this weekend… I hope to see it Monday afternoon. BTW, many years ago I had the privilege of meeting Data’s cat from The Next Generation!
