“Star Trek” began in 1966 as a television series about space explorers in the 23rd century. Although it became a worldwide popular culture phenomenon, the series was relatively unsuccessful in its original TV run.
 
Created by Gene Roddenberry, “Star Trek” was the first prime-time, adult science-fiction, color TV series. The first pilot Roddenberry wrote was rejected by the NBC network. He wrote a second pilot, “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” in 1965. The series was then picked up by NBC. The first “Star Trek” episode, titled “Man Trap,” was aired September 8, 1966.
 
Captain James Tiberius Kirk, played by William Shatner, led the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The last names January, Boone, Timber, Raintree, and Hudson were also considered for Shatner’s character. Other crew members were Mister Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Scotty (James Doohan), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Lieutenant Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), Ensign Checkov (Walter Koenig), and Mister Sulu (George Takei).
 
Low ratings led to “Star Trek’s” cancellation after 79 episodes. The last new episode, “Turnabout Intruder,” aired June 3, 1969. Sections of the set were donated to the Theater Arts Department at UCLA after the show ended, and many of the props and costumes were stolen.
