@karen is really started to get into research in earnest on the book, after having made many great contacts in the Trek publishing world in Vegas. We’ll be taking a trip to LA in November to meet up with various people involved in production on TNG and the TOS-era films, including HMS and hopefully Maggie Schpak who made much of the beautiful Vulcan beautiful jewelry. We also plan to meet up with the Rodd.com folks, etc. Kitty Swink, Denise Crosby, and TNG writer David Kemper were also very enthusiastic about the project, so Karen is looking forward to hopefully having their support and encouragement.
Can anybody brainstorm some ideas for Karen on places to start looking for research, or people whom she should contact? Does anybody have any leads on how to get in touch with collectors who may own screen-used jewelry? Any other people to contact, or even just a list of instances of jewelry you can think of in the shows? Any and all help is most welcome and would be greatly appreciated. If you have info you’d rather not post publicly, you can PM @karen directly or PM me.
Thanks in advance!
