Good Morning, San Diego!


My personal tribute to the beautiful city of San Diego (California, USA), where I’ve had the pleasure to live for almost 15 years. All the scenes in this video were captured around sunrise over a period of four months, from August to November of 2014.

Shot entirely using a GoPro HERO3 Black Edition camera (1080p, 60fps, Medium FOV) mounted on a DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-3D 3-axis gimbal. Edited using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

This video was made solely for hobby and recreational purposes. Filming locations were researched and selected in July 2014 taking into account recreational flight safety guidelines reported in the news at the time.

More succinct guidelines were widely publicized later that year, including the “Know Before You Fly” educational campaign at that started in December 2014. Visit for the latest U.S. Federal regulations on unmanned aircraft systems. Please fly safely.

One of many Star Wars registration cards.

If you’ve ever watched The Big Bang Theory, you know that the guys are obsessed with Star Wars.

In one episode, Leonard suggests a Star Wars marathon weekend to Sheldon, who replies with “Movies or video games? Or board games? Or trading card games? Or Legos? Or dress up? Or comic books? Or dramatic readings of novelizations? Yes to all!”

They settle on the online game. The scene just scratches the surface of all the Star Wars derivative works, many of which I owned “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . . ” (or, more accurately, forty-some years ago in Pittsburgh).

So, just how many hits do you think searching “Star Wars” gets in the Copyright Public Records System? On this Star Wars Day, I got more than 8,400.

Searching “Star Wars” in the Copyright Public Records System found more than 8,400 results.

Now, not all of them are related to the first Star Wars movie, registered by Twentieth Century-Fox in 1977—for example, some are about the star wars defense system from the 1980s.

But most are on topic, and several can be seen in the Find Yourself in Copyright exhibit.

How do I find myself in Star Wars? I’m an old-school fan—the original trilogy was a huge part of my childhood. I know I’m not alone, given that all three original movies have been added to the National Film Registry. I remember seeing the films in the theater, and I remember how big of a deal it was when Star Wars was on TV for the first time. But even greater are my memories of the creative works that came from the movies.

Travel Log: ‘Star Trek: The Cruise’ Is Voyage Worth Taking –

By Aaron Bossig, April 24, 2022

Last month the fifth official Star Trek Cruise returned to port, after a seven-day voyage.

Onboard to document the experience was a TrekMovie contributor and host of the Hungry Trilobyte podcast, Aaron Bossig who is a cruising regular.

More than a floating Trek convention

Star Trek: The Cruise V left out of Port Canaveral, FL on February 26, 2022.  The event was set on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas vessel, a Voyager-class cruise ship in service since 2003.  The itinerary held three ports of call: Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.

Unlike other times when the Mariner left Florida, this day all of its 1,600 cabins were filled with Star Trek fans. The staff was wearing Starfleet uniforms.  The wall art had been changed to portray Starfleet captains.  The elevators had been redressed to resemble turbolifts. Sailing toward the horizon, the ship’s sound system played Star Trek themes by Jay Chattaway and Jerry Goldsmith.
