Fifty years ago yesterday (Sept. 8, 1966), Star Trek beamed onto our TV screens for the first time with its debut episode, “The Man Trap,” where we were first introduced to strange new worlds and new civilizations alongside Capt. James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the crew of the Enterprise.
Over the course of 50 years, Star Trek saw five series (The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise) — with a sixth one from showrunner Bryan Fuller on the way titled Star Trek: Discovery — and 13 movies.
Yesterday, a new trailer celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek was released by Paramount Pictures, featuring a montage of scenes from the various movies, starting with 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture up to this year’s Star Trek Beyond, accompanied by Michael Giacchino's Star Trek score (from the J.J. Abrams Kelvin Timeline).
How did you guys celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary? Any marathon viewing plans for this weekend? What was your favorite Star Trek memory/series/movie/character?
