Happy Birthday to Star Trek TAS that also premiered this day forty years ago. Whatever reservations I might have about TAS there is still a lot of cool stuff in it. The first episode I recall seeing was "Beyond The Farthest Star." Back then at the age of 14 it blew me away. It was everything I hoped to see in new Star Trek. Ot was soon followed by another standout episode, "Yesteryear." And other of episodes still stand out (for me): "Jihad," "Pirates Of Orion," "Slaver Weapon" and "Albatross."
