Finding the Future in the Past
Happy anniversary to the original Star Trek series! That “Wagon Train to the stars,” as creator Gene Roddenberry described it, debuted as part of NBC-TV’s prime-time schedule on September 8, 1966--46 years ago today. Google celebrates this occasion with a special homepage doodle, while Steven Thompson breaks out some Star Trek memorabilia to herald the show’s cultural impact.
