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.
