Celebrating 50 years of Star Trek

Date: September 8, 1966.  The birth date of the Star Trek franchise and universe.  A tremendous date in history for a TV show that many weren't sure would bear fruit.  But, it grew and today we have several movies, four spin off series, a new TV series (Discovery), and even fan films/series being created.  It is a great day to be a Trek Fan.  Not sure Gene Roddenberry would have totally believed his show could have achieved so much, but I believe he would very happy.  Check out this amazing video tribute.  Live long and prosper...
