2016 47c Starship & Vulcan Salute
 
In 1964, writer and producer Gene Roddenberry had an idea for a new science fiction show.  It combined the action of a Western with the adventure of space. He called it a “wagon train to the stars,” which nearly became the name of the show.

Inspired by the Horatio Hornblower novels and Gulliver’s Travels, Roddenberry envisioned Star Trek as more than just science fiction.  He believed it was an example of what humanity could become if it learned from its past mistakes and put an end to violence. 

Premiering on September 8, 1966, Star Trek was ahead of its time.  In the midst of the Civil Rights Movement and tensions with communist nations, the multi-racial cast included African Americans, Asians, and Soviets – which was unheard of at the time.  Though set in space and on alien planets, the storylines directly reflected events of the time – war and peace, imperialism, class warfare, and human rights.

Star Trek
also introduced seemingly impossible technologies.  Some became reality – cell phones and tablet computers – while others have not.

Though the original Star Trek lasted just three seasons, renewed interest over the years sparked five additional series, 13 movies, comics, games, books, and more.  This ensures there will be new generations of Star Trek fans, or “Trekkies,” for years to come.
