Happy 46th Anniversary Star Trek!
On September 8th, 1966, a little low-budget space opera aired for the first time on NBC. It didn't do so well in ratings, was considered a pariah by executives, and was ultimately cancelled after three short seasons. Still, Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek has crafted an enduring legacy, one that has rippled through all of SF since. Its spin-offs have been equally impactful, and together the shows have created an epic mythos with a dedicated fan following.
Trek has shaped my experience and interpretation of SF and dominated my fandom participation. My love for the series is permanently written on my body. So today, the anniversary of all things Trek, I present a smattering of Trek love for my fellow Trekkies.
