He's Dead Jim!

crichton13 writes about Star Trek: The Original Series

Gene Roddenberry


TV: Star Trek: The Original Series.
Creator: Gene Roddenberry

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

Just the Best!!

I can watch these episodes, ad infinitum and I'm NEVER bored!

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I remember being a small child and probably watching the original series (Dad was an early Trekker) and Baloc and others scared the c*ap out of me at 3!! After, when BBC2 started their 80's re-runs I watched them all and begun MY journey to the final frontier...

Recollection and revelations

Dad watched the original series and I vaguely remember some of them from the original broadcasts...

It influenced me to become a life-long devotee of Science Fiction, electronic Music, physics, IT and probably lots of other interests that I could not possibly work out!

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
