I wonder: has anyone ever gotten hooked on Trek as an adult, or did we all catch the bug when we were kids?
I was probably seven when I first caught "Mantrap" on NBC. Been a Trekkie ever since . . ..
Well, I don't want to make you feel old (even though I'm an old man now....) but the answer to your question in my case is "yes". I was born a little less than four years after that first airing of "The Man Trap", and the original NBC run of TOS is the only part of of Star Trek that I was not there for when it was new.
