Star Trek is ubiquitous. It’s hard to imagine that, almost 50 years ago, it was a show that was cancelled. Twice. Now, it’s part of the fabric of science fiction history and certainly a part of American pop culture.
As we approach the 50th anniversary of the show’s premiere this September, there is little doubt that an increasing number of retrospectives and tributes will be coming our way. I await them anxiously.
I came across one this week that is really terrific. Moviepilot.com has put together a look at what really made Star Trek an international phenomenon: the movie series. This is a great read about the first three Star Trek movies.
