40 Years of Star Trek
It was 40 years ago today that Star Trek made its first appearance on television and began a cult like following despite poor ratings. The show was only on for three years, yet it spun off a number of other shows, movies, and items. There are also a variety of Star Trek books available for children of all ages. Even though it was Captain Kirk who said if I remember from those summer days of watching the repeats “...to boldly go where no man has gone before...” or something like that, I seriously doubt anyone envisioned such a phenomenon would have transpired. In my opinion, science fiction literature has benefited notably since Star Trek took flight. No matter your preference of genre you have to appreciate to some degree the influence a television show can have on reading and authors.
However, in other news I am sure you would all agree that Blogger could really benefit for some time with Scotty and his ability to tinker with the engines to achieve warp drive. It could be me, but of late I can’t seem to get Blogger to move past turtle speed.
