Happy Birthday, Star Trek!
50 years filled with hours upon hours of going where no one has gone before and exploring humanity through science fiction, following wonderful crews and captains and always pushing boundaries.
Whether you came to the franchise through any of the tv shows, the old movies, the new movies or haven’t started yet (what an adventure you have ahead of you then! It’s never too late!), Star Trek has inspired so many and left its mark on the world and on you and me too.
(Personally I started with TNG. I watched it a lot as a kid, and I remember complaining that I recognized plot points they had borrowed from Stargate. Of course, I realized later that the borrowing was the other way around.)
Nowadays it is so common to imagine the future as bleak and dystopian. Don’t get me wrong, I have my fair share of love for those too, but Star Trek shows a future where (to borrow a recurring theme in the most recent movie, Star Trek Beyond), “there’s strength in unity”. A positive outlook. That was the core of it from the start. A show in the 60s, in the middle of the Cold War, to have a bridge crew with the diversity that Star Trek had, imagine that!
There’s a reason it’s stuck around, and part of that, I believe, is because it is always relevant. Whether its on the small or big screen, or in any other form of media. I’m so glad that it’s coming back as a tv show, with Star Trek Discovery (headed by Bryan Fuller. Hype!) coming out next year.
Keep pushing boundaries, Star Trek. Keep doing what you’re best at. Here’s to another fifty.
