The Phenomenon of Star Trek
Science fiction has always been very popular, especially with the youth. With Star Trek, things are certainly no different, only there are (excuse the pun) several generations of viewers now who have enjoyed the show’s various incarnations. The appeal of Star Trek is universal, it cuts across all cultures and people.

The original TV series, simply called Star Trek, featured William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as the pointy-eared alien, the Vulcan scientist Mr. Spock.
