"Star Trek" is 50 years old.

Post by bindeweede » Thu Sep 08, 2016 11:05 pm

Dreamed up by writer and former Air Force pilot Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek began life as a humanistic science fiction TV show on September 8, 1966. Though The Original Series, as it was later dubbed, was canceled after only three seasons, it would turn out to have unprecedented cultural influence.
An affectionate view for "non-Trekkies", apparently.

Excellent. Hadn't realised that the subsequent series had so many more episodes than the original.

My favourite episode - The Man Trap coincidentally the first episode broadcast.
