Today in History, September 8,1966

imageHappy 50th Anniversary Star Trek!  On this night in 1966 the crew of the U.S.S Enterprise began their five year mission to boldly go where no man has gone before. They did so in more ways than one by working the social issues of the sixties into their scripts and making casting decisions that were bold for the time.

Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock, Scotty, Bones, Lt. Uhura, Mr. Sulu, Mr. Chekov and many others invigorated our imaginations and made us believe anything was possible….such as the Kobayashi Maru training exercise.

This Trekkie thanks you!
