Today is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek beginning the premiere of Star Trek: The Original Series episode of The Man Trap on September 8th, 1966. 50 years later, the Star Trek franchise continues on. There have been a lot of firsts that this franchise has done to change the course of history in TV: racial diversity and the first interracial kiss on TV. The franchise has been doomed three times because of three bad movies (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier, and Star Trek: Nemesis) and one bad TV show: Star Trek: Enterprise. The franchise was resurrected by the reboot Star Trek (2009) movie. Overlooking the failures, Star Trek franchise has been very successful spawning five TV series with the 6th series on the way, Star Trek Discovery, and thirteen feature films. The Klingons, a race featured in the Star Trek universe, has it’s own constructed language that has been featured in numerous TV shows, movies, and books.
Star Trek franchise has left a permanent mark on my life as I grew up as a kid with Star Trek: The Next Generation on TV and seeing Star Trek: The Original Series in syndication. My knowledge of the Star Trek universe has helped me explain a lot of things to casual Star Trek fans who love the Kelvin Timeline, which is Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond. Live Long and Prosper.
