H2O #129: In Which We Discuss STAR TREK’s 50th Anniversary


“Space. The final frontier…”

Those words are indelibly imprinted on the minds of generations of fans. Trekkers, Trekkies… doesn’t matter which label you claim. And whether your favorite show is The Next GenerationVoyagerDeep Space NineEnterprise, the animated series, or the Original… they are all Star Trek.

But we wouldn’t have the spinoff series, the movies, the books, the video games, the comic books, and the wealth of merchandise without the original Wagon Train to the Stars that grew out of Gene Roddenberry’s musings about the future. The show’s influence on technology, the commentary about our culture, the inspiration for so many who became astronauts and engineers and scientists… it all came from a show that dared show us a hopeful future in which we’d finally gotten our act together and learned to get along.

Here, then, is our discussion about Star Trek.
