    Well it's the 8th September so ST celebrates it's golden anniverary. I doubt the execs all those years ago thought it would endure and stand the test of time.

    Ah.i was wondering if there was a thread. Happy birthday, Star Trek!

    Now I am feeling old -- I am only 7 years younger than Star Trek!

    Happy Birthday Star Trek.

    Over the last few days watched a few episodes from the other shows. Tonight it shall be all TOS, with The Man Trap being first up. Yet to decide on which other episodes I'll watch.

    I'm rather surprised there appears to be no Google-doodle today...

    To be fair Star Trek would still be 50 years old even if it never made it past season one.

    Luckily we're celebrating here in New Zealand with a special pop-up channel:

    It's great! Little trivia questions here and there between episodes as well. Nothing too hardcore since I've answered them before the multi-choice pops up. 'Where No Man Has Gone Before' is on presently; many years since I've seen it. Good grief Spock enjoyed shouting earlier on! :D

    Today is also my birthday, so as a Trekker, I always found that a happy coincidence!

    I'll probably watch "The Man Trap" tonight as well, mediocre as it is. :D
