To boldy go...

September 8,1966 marked the beginning of a journey that continues 50 years later. Funny enough, while the original Star Trek series lasted only three seasons, it built a large enough following through syndication to produce several more related TV series and multiple movies over the next 50 years. People flock to conventions and themed cruises and they actively talk about all things Trek on social media. They still buy into Gene Roddenberry's vision of a future filled with hope.
