Roddenberry Vault: Week 4 - Snaps of the cast

Throughout 2016 the Roddenberry Facebook page will be posting artefacts from their archives, including behind the scenes documents, production artwork, and photos. Dubbed the Roddenberry Vault, there will be new posts every day, some times multiples. To make sure you don't miss any of these insightful glimpses into the production of Star Trek, I will be posting weekly summaries.

In the fourth week's worth of posts we've been treated to a wide range of behind the scenes photos, mainly of the cast, each day from a different episode. Continue below for details of all the posts from the last full week of January.

Day twenty-two continued from the previous day, with another set of photos from The Deadly Years, this time with William Shatner, James Doohan and DeForest Kelley all larking about while in aged make-up:

Day twenty-three returned to the set of The Cage, this time with Gene Roddenberry chating with John Hoyt, aka Doctor Boyce, up a ladder on the Talos IV set.

Day twenty-four is one of the slide images, this time Doctor McCoy with sword and shield in hand, from Bread and Circuses. Day twenty-five is my favourite of the week, several shots of T’Pring, played by Arlene Martel in Amok Time.

Day twenty-six was another slide, this time the landing party sneaking up on Vaal in The Apple. While day twenty-seven followed with anothers assortment of images, this time from Journey to Babel, including Leonard Nimoy and Jane Wyatt, aka Spock and Amanda, as well as Eddie Paskey, aka Mr Leslie.

The last post of the week was another slide image, this one from Catspaw.

Make sure you follow the Roddenberry Facebook page to catch posts as they come out each day. And be sure to click through to the original posts to check out more images and join the discussions. The Roddenberry page is pretty active on other fronts too, so if you want to find your way back to previous Vault posts, then scanning back through my weekly summary articles might be a bit easier; you can find all of them under my Roddenberry Vault label.
