Today in 1966, NBC premiered a TV show that would begin to reshape the realm of Science Fiction. Congrats to Gene Rodenberry’s vision of a better humanity and a broader acceptance of science. Just a few things that came true: four tv spinoffs, 12 movies, a NASA Shuttle named Enterprise, a spot in the Smithsonian, handheld wireless global communication, and the iPad.
