Computer Guy Celebrates The Star Trek 50th Anniversary

Fifty years ago, Gene Roddenberry changed science-fiction and ultimately the technology that science created with Star Trek.

The series pushed social boundaries and helped define sci-fi as a genre that could show all the possibilities of what humanity could be. The show and franchise became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to the iconic performances by the show's original cast -- William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Spock, DeForest Kelley as Leonard "Bones" McCoy, George Takei as Hikaru Sulu, Walter Koenig as Pavel Chekov, and Nichelle Nichols as Uhura.

The original series only lasted three seasons but it's ideas led to many technological developments inspired by the show such as the ion propulsion engine, the flip phone, and the space shuttle Enterprise.
