I wasn't even a thought.


Wow, it wasn't too long ago that they were talking about the 40th Anniversary somewhere.

I was 7 when Star Trek first aired.  I remember begging to stay up to watch it.  And then in the early 70's, I joined S.T.A.R.  I've been a loyal fan ever since.  Happy Anniversary to all the wonderful and talented people that have put so much of them selves into all of the Star Trek series over the years, but especially to Mr Roddenberry and the Pioneers that got the ball rolling.

Was it today? Yesterday I mean?


Difficult to say when it all began. I'm re-reading Stephen E. Whitfield's book The Making of Star Trek. This discusses Gene's first thoughts on it back in 1960 and how he started to develop these ideas until actual production started in 1964 on The Cage. Of course the final screen debut was in Autumn 1966 but there are so many possible anniversaries. 


If you can get hold of this book it is well worth it.


It even contains Roddenberry's original storyline for The Cage featuring one Captain Robert April.

It's been an amazing ride.  I just wish the next driver would get in and take us further down the road.

I agree 100%, but I think all of us know that the idea of Star Trek will never die.  but it does help if we have a reincarnation.
