No, we haven't forgotten.
So Happy Birthday Star Trek. Forty-seven years ago today the very first episode of The Original Series aired and now-household names were born.
Thanks Gene for your creation and here's our own mini-tribute to this landmark event in TV history with the first spoken words by a certain Mr Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk. Who could've known we'd still be talking, writing, blogging, vlogging, audio-novelling, online gaming etc etc after so long - and even making the odd blockbuster movie still (take that one, Dr Who)?
But perhaps we should now start asking what 50 years will have for us - September 8th 2016 is but three years away...
