Happy Birthday Star Trek, may you live long and prosper.
I can still remember reading about the show in the newspaper. they had a picture in there of the entire crew and a story saying that the "five year mission" was coming to British TV soon.
I loved it, but Ifind some of those early episodes a little difficult to watch these days - same goes for early TNG.
I dare say I'll get the boxed sets of the original series - although I can't see me ever getting the animated series.
