    Forty years ago today, the first episode of Star Trek aired. We first caught a glimpse of the Starship Enterprise, every eight year old boy wanted to be a Vulcan, Uhura wore a miniskirt on the bridge, and Bill Shatner has been annoying television audiences ever since. ;)

    Plus, a buncha Star Trek movies, four spin-off series, games, toys, etc, etc. Live long and prosper, eh? :rolleyes:

    Happy Anniversary, Star Trek!:thumbleft:

    Star Trek ruled man. Hot girls in tight outfits was not the norm on TV way back then. You have to love Klingons, they are just cool, even the Klingon chicks were strangely attractive to me.........well some of them anyways. You have to like a girl who bites mmmmmmm.

    The show really was ahead of it's time. Think about it, the 1960s, they had a Russian man, a Japanese Man and a black woman on the bridge. I am sure that raised some eyebrows in those days.

    Star Trek is awesome!

    Not only do I like the original show, I really Deep Space Nine and now Enterprise.

    The Movies especially the newer ones are really good as well.

    While we are talking about hot Star Trek characters the best was Jadzia Dax
    from Deep Space Nine. Plus the spots went all the way down!

    Yeah, Terry Ferrell is hot. I always liked the Jadzia Dax character. She was far better than the Ezri Dax character who replaced her, although Nicole de Boer was cute too. :love4:


    Since today marks the fifth anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, I thought maybe this pic. It isn't meant in poor taste, so I apologize to those who may, for whatever reason, find it offensive.

    No offense taken to that. This is a Star Trek thread.

    Yeah Jedzia Dax was awesome. I have all the Deep Space 9s on DVD. Terry Ferrel was a good actress.

    My Dad was a huge trekkie, once even driving down the Long Island Expressway at over 100mph to make it home for the show...

    Live long and prosper...

    Which beginning intro did you like the most of the Star Trek Show's.

    Personally I liked the Next Generation's intro.
