Star Trek was a television series back in the 1960's, which ran for 3 years. It was a science fiction series with a cast including William Shatner, who starred at Captain James T. Kirk. The cast also included Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock. He was the only officer who was not from the Planet Earth. Then they had DeForest Kelley as Doctor McCoy. His nickname was 'Bones'. Next came James Doohan who was chief engineer Montgomery Scott. In addition there was Nichelle Nichols as Lt. Uhura, the communications officer, George Takei as Lt. Sulu, the helmsman, and Walter Konig as Chekov.
All the aforementioned cast appeared as the crew of the United Star Ship Enterprise. They were all officers in Star Fleet Command, the military protectors of Earth and numerous other planets. The series followed their adventures, as they followed the orders of Star Fleet Headquarters. It became known, through the many episodes, that all officers had to go through Star Fleet Academy for several years, before they were qualified for duty.
Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy were shown to be very close friends, as well as military representatives of Star Fleet. There was always some kind of friendly friction between Dr. McCoy and Mr. Spock, due to Mr. Spock's steadfast dedication to logic. His seeming lack of emotions were a major help and hindrance to every episode.
The series was broadcast for three years, ending original showing in 1969. It is the only series in television history, to go into syndication until the present day. It also spawned many motion pictures, which were more popular than the original series. The original series did receive good ratings at first, but they did not keep up.
The original star of the series was going to be Jeffrey Hunter starring as Capt. Pike, but NBC failed to approve the pilot episode. The series had been cancelled after its first season. However, there was a very strong fan base, and a nationwide letter writing campaign convinced NBC to resurrect the series.

Abrams sat down with Empire to talk about the direction of where "Star Wars: Episode VII" will head, and why he first rejected the idea of taking on the project.
If there's one thing you can say about William Shatner, it's that he's totally willing to toss his "Star Trek" legacy aside and do just about anything to get a laugh, especially if it involves making fun of himself. Which is what this incredibly strange video is all about. Watch Captain Kirk himself cover "Bohemian Rhapsody."
Netflix CEO and co-founder Reed Hastings delivered a Sept. 19 email to all subscribers both apologizing for and explaining his company's controversial move to separate DVD-rental-by-mail and streaming-video services into two separate plans.
People get engaged amid wacky circumstances all the time. Sometimes it's accidental, sometimes it's planned. This time, it's just...plain...awesome. The gent got down on bended knee at the Wizard World Comic Con in Chicago recently. Luckily, his girlfriend said yes, but just to make the whole thing right, the pair received the most prestigious blessing a couple love-struck Trekkie could get. Do you really think I'm saying here who it is? Watch the video.
