They've Lived Long and Prospered

William Shatner at ComicCon in Calgary, June 2011

Leonard Nimoy in Vulcan, Alberta, April 2010
Star Trek premiered 45 years ago today, September 8, 1966.
It's my favourite show ever, and it was more real to me then than anything I ever saw on the news.
Full confession, it still is.
Thank you, Mr. Roddenberry.

It changed how we viewed what the future can be, didn't it?

It certainly did, Messymimi.

I loved that show. Still do. Messymimi has it right, it gave us hope for the future even if it was still a bit sexist.

Hope for the future seen through the lens of the sixties, Reb.

I was/am a big fan. I still prefer those 79 episodes to all that followed.

David, me too.
