Space… the final frontier. These are the ongoing voyages of the starship… Enterprise. It’s continuing mission, explore strange new worlds that will most likely destroy us. To seek out new life and new diseases that will probably kill us. To boldly go where no sane person would ever fucking go…………… But, considering the results of this years election… I’m willing to take that chance. Please, beam me up Scotty!!!!! There is no intelligent life in my government!!!
Star Trek debuted on this day in 1966— 50 whole years ago!
44 episodes later, the world was introduced to these fluffy little alien
creatures in “The Troubles with Tribbles.” This tribble, a recent addition to our collection, was used in that 1967
“[W]e just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation.” – Simon Pegg on writing Star Trek 3
