Happy 50th Anniversary to Star Trek!
The original Star Trek series was a constant in my life growing up. There was almost no time when it wasn't playing in re-runs, so my family basically watched an episode a day for years and years and years. Sure we'd skip the ones we didn't like, but more often than not, when time for it to start rolled around (I recall it aired at 5 pm weekdays, for years), we'd flip stations and settle in to watch. I can't imagine life without Star Trek somewhere in it.
So Happy Anniversary and a huge thank you to all involved who made this show possible, and then kept it going through some great movies, and onto new television series.
My favorite Original Series eps:
1. Bread and Circuses
2. Mirror Mirror
3. Shore Leave
4. City on the Edge of Forever
7. Balance of Terror
8. Journey to Babel
5. Errand of Mercy
6. Enterprise Incident
9. Day of the Dove
10. The Trouble with Tribbles
Favorite movies with the original cast:
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
