I never actually got to see much Star Trek as a young boy, but I do remember the first time I saw it. I was probably 8-10 years old and my family and I were visiting relatives in the Detroit, Michigan area. The big city downstate had a bunch of TV stations compared to the sticks where I'm from! I looked forward to the adventure of simply watching TV there because of all the shows I'd get to see that were new to me. One show had a weird pointy-eared man with funny eyebrows and he was on a really cool space ship. I'll never forget it. I'd never seen anything like it! I didn't know what the show was, but I wanted to see more. And over the years I have seen a lot more!
Who knew how much more there would be to see? Star Trek has become quite a franchise. Talk about "live long and prosper"! Thanks for the memories Mr. Spock and the many crews of the Starship Enterprise!
