William Shatner a.k.a Capt. James T Kirk was inducted into the Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame in December '06. Star Trek will always remain one of my fondest TV series & even modern mind boggling special effects driven movies do not appeal to me as much as the hit TV show from the 60's. In India, it used to be aired in the late 90's after which it was pulled off.
The camaraderie between Kirk & Spock will always be memorable for any true blue trekkie. Not to mention the plots & sub plots that ventured into varied philosophies of science & human civilization, posing some insightful questions to the audience.
The cultural impact of Star Trek has been immense & has led to an entire subculture. For the first time in 25 years, the show is in a state where no star trek film or series is in production or development following the cancellation of Enterprise.
Boldly go here, where no man has gone before.
