Space, the final frontier....

ST:TOS: I salute you.
Tonight is the 45th anniversary of the first Star Trek episode, The Man Trap. It may not mean much to those of you not in the science fiction/fantasy community, but because so many young people grew up to take jobs at NASA and elsewhere because they were inspired by Star Trek--and have said so--we owe the series a great deal.

Thank you James Doohan, DeForest Kelly, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Leonard Nimoy, Gene Roddenberry, William Shatner, George Takei, and last but not least, the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 for boldly going where no one had gone before.
