Happy Anniversary Star Trek!

Forty-four years ago yesterday, a legend was born! Star Trek aired it's first episode on Sept 8th 1966. That episode began the original series that (get this) lasted for ONLY 3 seasons. By today's standards, that is NOTHING.Even my fave SciFi show Stargate Atlantis lasted for 5 seasons (and Stargate's original TV series lasted for 10!). That being said, Star Trek had a huge cult following that developed into many successful films and other TV series including (my favorite of the franchise) Star Trek: The Next Generation. Also at the top of my list, the new Star Trek films. Talk about a great re-imagining of the franchise! I loved that movie- and so did all of you! :)

I never had a crush on Jean-Luc. This was a myth perpetuated by your father, who thinks Trekkies are strange characters with big ears and small brains. I've tried to convince him they are the beautiful, brainy people, but he just doesn't get it!
