The original "Star Trek" TV series turns 45

I would be remise if I didn't acknowledge the 45th Anniversary of the very first "Star Trek" episode which aired tonight in 1966 on NBC. SO MUCH has happened since then and there's certainly been a fair share of "Trek" movies and TV shows...good ("The Wrath of Khan", "The Voyage Home" and YES..."The Search For Spock"!) and bad (I know...don't get me started on the BAD!!)

No matter...

The original cast, the original ship, the original show; to this day, that's what it's all about! Gene Roddenberry's western trail to the stars is an icon among icons and I seriously need to pull up some of my favorite episodes online and take in the adventures of Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise the way I enjoyed them as a kid.
