Attoreny Sanders says Star Trek is 42 years old today!

 On September 8, 1966, Star Trek made its network television debut.  In hindsight, it is hard to believe that the show lasted just three seasons — 80 episodes — and was canceled by NBC in 1969 because of low ratings.  The original cast members on the USS Enterprise’s 1966 flight deck became household names: Capt. James T. Kirk (William Shatner), First Officer Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Chief Engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott (James Doohan), Communications Officer Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) and Helmsman Hikaru Sulu (George Takei).

Is it really possible that Star Trek is 42 years old?  Happy Birthday to Trekies everywhere!!
