We all had a life before Star Trek. Do you remember what it was like? I was just reflecting on this. For me it's long, long before the internet and being able to discuss the latest projects and news with people all over the world. For me it was the 1960s and I wouldn't encounter Star Trek until 1970 when it was already out of production and well into syndicated reruns. The only vague memory I have before that was my mother switching channels (no remote) and she stopped ever so briefly at the scene of an odd looking spaceship orbiting a planet and the next scene of a group of characters in some unusual control room. And it was in b&w. Before Star Trek for me there was The Adventures Of Superman, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon and Zorro on The Commander Tom Show broadcast out of Buffalo. There was the Adam West Batman series (I loved that as a 7 year old, but I was a kid so what did I know? ) There was also Lost In Space, Land Of The Giants, Time Tunnel, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. There was animated Superman and Batman and other characters, most particularly the animated Spider-Man series. My space adventure of choice then was Space Ghost. It was also a time when I was just being introduced to comics. I read numerous characters then, but Batman and The Amazing Spider-Man loom most largely in memory of that time. I also recall when DC started to make Batman more serious again--it was like a light went on and I could never look at the Adam West or the animated series the same ever again. Before Star Trek for me superheroes loomed largest. After finding Star Trek superheroes took a back seat to a different collection of heroes. Anyone else?
