The Debut of STAR TREK!

Today is the anniversary of the first airing of the first episode of some little science fiction drama, STAR TREK, which made its debut on September 8, 1966.

The rest, as they say, is history. 

Famously, the debut episode was not the first episode made, but the fifth. "MAN TRAP" about the Enterprise coming across a salt vampire, starred William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. At this point, DeForest Kelley was only a co-star. The other featured players were James Doohan, George Takei, and Nichelle Nichols. Ensign Chekov and Nurse Chapel did not appear.

Here's a fan-made re-do of the opening and closing's awesome!
