Welcome to the world of fan-made Star Trek, hosted by Lolani Net Videos.
In the Star Trek television show, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise explore the Galaxy and defend the United Federation of Planets.
The first series, now referred to by fans as “The Original Series” (TOS), debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons on NBC. Creator Gene Roddenberry was inspired by Westerns such as Wagon Train, along with the Horatio Hornblower novels and Gulliver’s Travels.
Star Trek is noted for its influence on the world outside of science fiction. It has been cited as an inspiration for several technological inventions such as the cell phone. Moreover, the show is noted for its progressive civil rights stances. The original series included one of television’s first multiracial casts, and the first televised inter-racial kiss.
