23 Hilarious Stories That Boldly Go Where No One Has Been Before – Happy Star Trek Day!

| Right | September 8, 2020

Dear readers,

On September 8th, 1966, NBC debuted a risky new show billed as a “wagon train to the stars” in an age where westerns and police procedurals were all the rage on network television. You don’t need to do a Vulcan mind-meld to know that the show in question, was Star Trek, and many decades later it still holds such a sway on western pop culture that it’s responsible for common phrases (set phasers to stun!), invented letter-writing campaigns to save canceled shows, and even an emoji 🖖 !

In celebration of the anniversary of such an iconic franchise, we’ve retrieved 23 classic stories from Memory Alpha about the trekkiest of Trekkies. We hope you live long and prosper, after enjoying this collection!
