45th Anniversary of Star Trek

On September 8, 1966 at 8:30pm TV audiences were introduced to Star Trek.  NBC aired the first episode on this date that was titled “The Man Trap.”  Most viewers were watching it on television sets that were only black and white.  Now we can dust off the old VCR tapes, put in the trusty DVD (original or new high-def) and even stream the episodes online through Netflix or from a variety of websites.  This streaming even allows us to watch Star Trek over our smart phones and tablet devices.   In a few more years, who knows what new technology will allow us to enjoy episodes of our favorite Science Fiction series.

So the questions we have today are, what are your favorite memories of the original Star Trek series?  What will you do to celebrate the anniversary?  Let us know by posting in the comments section below.  We would love to hear your ideas.
