On this day in 1969 the last episode of Star Trek aired. The original Star Trek lasted 3 seasons and 79 episodes on NBC. It was never a huge hit during its regular run but it had a fan base. It grew even more popular in re-runs and has become one of the iconic series’ in television history. My favourite character-Spock, he was the heart of the series and one of the greatest characters in the history of television.
