40 years ago something amazing started on TV. So amazing that after 40 years it its fame is still growing. Something that enriched millions of lifes, created its own universe with a story deeper than anything else every conceived by mankind.
Hell yeah, I am speaking of Star Trek and the nerd in me is crying tears now. On September 9th 1966 the first Episode of Star Trek aired. I’d like to send a big thankyou to Gene Roddenberry for one of the greatest sci-fi stories I ever experienced.
Today Star Trek is by far the biggest Sci-Fi universe with thousands of unique characters, stories, technologies and fans. And although I’d like to punish Kate Mulgrew (Cpt. Kathryn Janeway) for ruining the entire storyline of the U.S.S. Voyager, I can definitely say that Star Trek was and still is one the best things if not in deed THE BEST thing that ever happened to TV in general.
Update: I just found out that William Shatner is too afraid to travel to space. Nice.
