Immerse Yourself in Star Trek
Star Trek is a science fiction media franchise that made its debut in 1966 as a television series written by Gene Roddenberry.
Its storyline took place in the 23rd Century and centered around the crew of a Federation starship, the “USS Enterprise”, and its captain, James T. Kirk.
Their mission was to “explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no man had gone before”.
Despite Star Trek’s popularity in the first season, its ratings declined during season two and it was canceled after season three.
Paramount then leased reruns of Star Trek to 150 domestic and 60 international broadcast TV stations and it was that syndication that dramatically increased its fan base.
As Star Trek gained millions of followers, various Star Trek spin-offs were produced, including an animated series and several TV shows, motions pictures, and video games.
The show was ahead of its time with respect to technology. And although it took place in the future, it addressed important present-day issues such as diversity, war, and peace.
