From around the galaxy

It's hard to see our favorite Star Trek hero characters play villains in movies and sitcoms.  2 examples are George Takei as Vice-Admiral Baron Takahashi in "Blood Oath" aka "Prisoners of The Sun" (1990)......



....and Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov) as Alfred Bestor in "Babylon 5"

I experience a similar, yet much stronger feeling when viewing Robert Young,

Robert Stack, Ward Bond, and Dan Dailey in The Mortal Storm (1940).

Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Early Color Photography 1905-1918

In other words, this appears to be similar in concept to 3-strip Technicolor, in that it also used 3 different exposures of B&W film in the camera, each receiving its own color-filtered image.

A paradigm shift in our workforce
NPR article HERE
As a younger man back in the late 70s, several friends maintained 'irregular' employment. They did piecework, usually tied to a grant of some origin. They always seemed to remain employed for 3 months.. maybe 6 to 18 months at a time even though they never knew where or when their next 'job' was.
