And you thought I was joking didn't you?

Twelve days - Twelve events!

Friends I'm up to my neck in work right now - we're behind by 12 hours! - but this is the biggest buzz of my life ... >ouch!< well besides getting married ... ok, and the birth of my kids ... Just finished the Content for Day 3 and sent it off to TrekUnited!

Cheers

I saw the first two days yesterday. Everything looks great! That bridge model is really cool. I e-mailed the url to my family (almost my whole family are trekkies).

Mega-Cheers, Kirok!

The First Trek Day of Christmas

15 December 2007 - On the first day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me… a Hako Enterprise Bridge! Our first present to Star Trek fans is a scale card model of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 bridge, Kirk's Enterprise from the Original Series, designed by Ron Caudillo and hosted by Jon Leslie on his LHVCC website. These have been designed as 6-8 modules that can be made individually or joined together to make a complete bridge set scaled to be used by Hako Clones. Don't know what a Hako Clone is?

The Second Trek Day of Christmas

16 December 2007 - On the second day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me… two fanzines! Christmas should be a time when you can sit back and enjoy some light holiday reading. Fanzines - literally fan-made magazines - have been around since the 1930's and for the most part have survived the leap from paper to the internet age. Today I will feature two fanzines, Imaginations Unlimited, a member's project of Starfleet International, and Acrux, a new Blogzine that this month focuses on the Twelve Trek Days of Christmas.

The Third Trek Day of Christmas

17 December 2007 - Star Trek was the first serious science fiction aimed at the mainstream public and Gene Roddenberry set the tone for the series by getting real science fiction writers to write for him. Today we introduce three wise men. I make no claim that they are the wisest of men but each has had something to say during the year, using Star Trek as their vehicle, that I have found either profoundly inspiring or profoundly challenging, and isn't that what science fiction is supposed to be about?

The Fifth Trek Day of Christmas

23 December 2007 - Sorry about the long delay we've had here - we'd rather it be correct and late than poor and on-time.

On the fifth day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me... Five Fan Films! Fan films are by far the highest form of fan production around today but who are they, where did they come from and how do they relate to each other? Consider Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, Star Trek: Intrepid, Star Trek: New Voyages, Starship Exeter, and Star Wreck. Kirok of L'Stok has taken his reporting on the five major fan films producing today and turned it into a chronology that we wager you'll find interesting and illuminating.

The Sixth Trek Day of Christmas

23 December 2007 - Filk is a tradition as old as Sci Fi conventions, and a subset of this tradition is Star Trek parodies of Christmas carols which are traditionally sung by trek fans to celebrate the season of goodwill to the accompaniment of much revelry and the imbibing of your drink of choice! The USS Joan of Arc, a Starfleet International Star Trek fan club of Corpus Christi, Texas, quite often gets the whole restaurant singing along with them at their Christmas parties! After the break you can download the songsheets for six of their original Filk Christmas carols.

The Seventh Trek Day of Christmas

24 December 2007 - On the seventh day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me... Seven Music Vid's! The internet is full of witty, entertaining and moving videos - mostly on YouTube, which has cornered the market as the defacto distribution network. I've scoured cyberspace for links to seven of the best Star Trek music videos and in the process met some interesting people and ended up in some strange places! It is by no means a definitive list think of this as the House of L'Stok's Playlist.

The Ninth Trek Day of Christmas

On the ninth day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me... Nine Gamers, Gaming! A Christmas stocking would be pretty bare without some games so, to fill your stocking to overflowing, here is information and resources of nine types of games. We have everything from Tridimensional Chess to online multiplayer gaming, from eBooks to free give-aways by licensed gaming companies!

The Tenth Trek Day of Christmas

On the tenth day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me... a ten page Star Trek comic! Over the twelve days of Christmas we have many fan productions created and brought to you by their owners, this could be the one you remember the most - a ten page comic brought to you by a new talent to the Star trek fan scene. Of course you're not going to get away with collecting your present without getting an article from the House of L'Stok surveying the current status of professional and fan Star Trek comics and some New year philsophising.

The Eleventh Trek Day of Christmas

On the eleventh day of Christmas, Star Trek gave to me... Eleven Hako Clones! The Hako Enterprise Bridge that was given away on the first Trek Day of Christmas has proven to be very popular but of what use is a diarama without the figures to place in it? It's like a doll house without dolls! Reaching down into the bottom of the present sack I find that we have eleven Hakos, hacking ... Or whatever it is that they do when noone is looking! Ranging from heroes and villains to monsters and men, these free downloads include a full Original Series crew of articulated Hakos that have seven moveable joints!

Cheers
