Space, the final frontier…
On 8 September 1966, a television series called ‘Star Trek’ aired for the first time. It succeeded only after a long struggle- what premiered was the second pilot filmed (practically unheard of at the time), and it only arrived on America’s television sets after six years of strenuous effort on the part of its creators. ‘Star Trek’ was a low budget series on a tight schedule and it defied many contemporary standards of what a television show should be. Yet what came out of such shaky beginnings was a set of characters who grew to be beloved by millions of people all over the world, an enduringly optimistic view of the future, and an impressive array of quality science fiction stories which challenged contemporary censorship by addressing issues of race, gender, and politics. All of this, and much more, contributed to the establishment of a legacy which continues even today, forty six years after the first episode aired.
