Star Trek - 45 Years Ago

Sept. 8, 1966 Star Trek Premiered on NBC.

The first of 79 episodes of the TV series "Star Trek" was aired on the NBC network. Although the science fiction show set in the future lasted only a few seasons, it has remained enormously popular in syndication. It has been given new life through many motion pictures, a cartoon series and the spin-off shows. It has consistently ranked among the biggest titles in the motion picture, television home video and licensing divisions of Paramount Pictures.

I grew up watching Star Trek on afternoon re-runs. It was a great show for a young mind.
