Shatner and Nimoy look at Mad Magazine

William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy on location in full costume before or between scenes look at Mad Magazine issue #115 from December 1967. This issue contained the parody of TOS Star Trek entitled "Star Blecch." The term would be used repeatedly in following Mad parodies (i.e.,Star Blecch III The Search for Plot, Star Blecch The Next Degradation, Star Blecch Voyeur, Star Blecch Worst Contact, and so on). It has been suggested this shot was taken during the filming of "A Private Little War."

    "Friday's Child" is another possibility. As you no doubt know, a lot of other pics were taken of location shooting at Vasquez Rocks for that episode, much like this pic.

    Robert Justman & Herb Solow's book Inside Star Trek: The Real Story, has this same photo. There, they indicate it was taken during shooting for Friday's Child.

    Ahhh the Arc lamp behind them. the most powerful lamp at the time. note the huge duct atop to remove heat. that thing took massive amounts of power but it gave you pure daylight. one had to be trained on it and someone always had to be near these lamps when they were struck (lit).
