One of the most successful science fiction franchises to ever hit television and the movies is that of Star Trek. In 1966, the original Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry, first aired on TV. The Star Trek series chronicled the interplanetary adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and his crew as they traveled through space on the Starship Enterprise. The catch phrase made famous in the early episodes of Star Trek proudly acclaimed, “To boldly go where no man has gone before,” and that is what Captain Kirk and his infamous crew did, week after week.
Some of the more infamous characters to be a part of the crew of the Enterprise include Spock, the stoic and logical Vulcan that is the first officer, Leonard “Bones” McCoy as the Medical Officer, and Montgomery Scott (“Scotty”) as the Chief Engineer. The casting of Star Trek was considered to be very innovative at its inception for its great diversity and the vast depth shown in the characters that starred in the show. Alien villian’s known as Klingon’s, became the original primary protagonists for Capt. Kirk and his crew of space travelers. Eventually, much later in the series, a Klingon named Worf became a loyal crewmember of the Starship Enterprise.
The Star Trek franchise developed into six television series (The original Star Trek, The Animated Star Trek, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise.) 11 feature films were made that featured the Star Trek cast of characters having various space adventures. Countless games, books, video games and toys have made the concept surrounding Star Trek one of the most well known in the world. Even the devoted fans of Star Trek have their own designation, and proudly wear the title of “Trekkies.”
