Star Trek 40th Anniversary

I was so busy with my own life yesterday that I totally missed the 40th anniversary of Star Trek, my absolutely all-time first ever favorite TV program.

Yes, I am a Trekkie, but I’ve never been to any conventions and I don’t own any memorabilia. Star Trek was probably into its last season before I started watching it, but I do remember as a very young child, maybe 5 or 6 years old, watching Star Trek and being thoroughly enthralled with the program. There was something mesmerizing and exciting about space travel and technology that captured my attention from an early age. I would venture to guess that I have seen every single episode of Star Trek the original series at least 10 times. Looking at the episodes today the technology and the costumes are rather hokey, but the storylines are timeless and still entertaining.

Those 40 years sure went by fast!

    Oh boy 40 years sure did go fast. 40 years ago, my son the new grandpa was 10 months old. I loved the original, the one’s the followed were great but I got bored with the same old stuff.
