Growing up in the 1960s, I never missed an episode of Star Trek, the original series. In retrospect, I was certainly influenced as a child by this wonderful series, created by Gene Rodenberry, a man with a great vision. I am thankful for all of these people and the wonderful memories they gave me and millions of other people around the world. Today, I am still every bit the Trekkie and watch Star Trek on BBC America each day during the weekdays. Thank you, Gene.

Star Trek, the original series, was great. Our generation can’t forget it, Mister Spock was my favorite, his attitude to all surprises, good or bad, was something I wanted to learn, no drama, just ” interesting”.
I think a Vulcan would make a good leader in many countries! 😂
I always heard “A trekkie wears the costumes (including Spock’s ears) and a trekker just loves the show. I never wanted to meet Shatner (I heard about the full of himself stuff before) but still love the old episodes!
I’ve never worn the costumes but have seen many do it on TV. I had no idea that Sgatner is a narcissist…
A great show for sure!
I am also a Trek fan. Gene sparked many ideas to real physicists. I hope one day, warp drive will come true.
Hi, that’s great! We need a warp drive system to reach these stars that would take millions or thousands of years to reach otherwise. It may never happen though. I want Giordi Laforge in the engine room!
I saw Shatner at a comic con (boy was he full of himself) and spoke to Nichols at one. She was a sweetie.
Lucky you! I would love to meet them. I follow them both on Instagram. Full of himself, eh?
Oh yeah! It was him talking and he mostly talked about his dogs. I forgot! Then Q showed up on stage… can’t remember much about what they said.
Oh, John D’Lancie. He’s on BBC America right now with Captain Picard!
Didn’t we all love Star Trek 🙂
I think so since the franchise has gone worldwide! Thanks, Rudi.
