It seemed the logical thing to do at the time*

Star date 9.10.11: On September 8, 1966, the first regular episode of Gene Roddenberry’s TV series Star Trek aired, launching one of the greatest sci-fi franchises in TV and film history.

For true Trekkies who know most everything about Star Trek, there are few surprises in space.com’s infographic that details the series’ first 45 years. But the all-inclusive graphic does show the franchise details in relation to real space travel, and suggests how real life influenced fiction.

Logical.

    Fascinating. . . . really. The original Star Trek was such a groundbreaking series, but still, at heart, a basic morality tale. Probably why it worked. All these years later, I still enjoy watching so many of the original episodes when the opportunity presents itself and, of course, appreciate the many quotes that the show generated. For devotees of the Star Trek series, the film Galaxy Quest is a must-see.
