Happy 50th Birthday Star Trek

The first episode of the original series aired September 8, 1966.

Wired tries to imagine the counterfactual world without it.

And Paramount has a video.

Gene Roddenberry went around showing a blooper reel and answering questions about the show in the late 60s after the original series had been cancelled. My dad, an engineer who subscribed to Galaxy and Analog magazines while I was growing up, took me to see his show at the Seattle Coliseum. Geek memories.
