…Star Trek debuted on NBC.
Still one of my favorite shows of all time….my introduction to the series (in the early 70s syndication runs) by my Grandmother and Uncles pretty much set me on the path that I’m on now.
I still long for the days when there was only one Trek, doing classic seat-of-your-pants exploratory space opera in a naval setting, and the property hadn’t disappeared up its own ass with convoluted continuity references and the latex-foreheaded-alien-of-the-week. There are some times when I have to strongly fight the urge to start up a classic-Trek RPG campaign….about the only thing that stops me is the knowledge that I’d have a hard time finding players.
Anyway — happy 40th anniversary!
