I love that ship. It's the first thing I remember seeing on TV as a baby.

I was eight when the series premiered on NBC, my parents let me watch if I wanted, but some of the monsters made me sleep with my covers over my head and my 'night light' under them with me....."Live long and prosper indeed.  I wish everyone could espouse that feeling in this life....Roddenberry's concept show was one of the greatest in terms of "message" I feel.....spock-smiley.gif

Oh, I bought the Franklin Mint's pewter model of the original ship.....still displayed on my dresser in my bedroom.....

Wow, early memory.  

 

I discovered it on Channel 11 when I was probably 9 or 10 because the reruns always ran right before the Yankee games.  Kind of eased into watching it that way.  When there was a rainout, and we were stuck with the Chan 11 "Rainout Theater" which was typically Abbot and Costello, I switched to Channel 9 and discovered Dr Who.

I wish I could remember which episode it was. I jsut remember the ship scrolling the screen, and Kirk doing his Captain's Log bit. My parents told me it was one of the shows I always wanted to see.

It wasn't until I was older that I started to remember the episodes - on Channel 11.

Yeah, I remember the rainout 'movies in progress'. Abbott and Costello.  I think that's the only time Ive ever actually seen their work... and the only one I remember - go figure - was the one with the rocket going through the Holland Tunnel. LOL.

Never got Dr Who as a kid. It took the reboot for me to like it.

For a long time, well into the '80s, I held the view that Star Trek was timeless, destined to be fresh forever - because the set designs, hairstyles, costumes and so on seemed so original and different from the time in which it was made. But now if I watch it, it just screams 1960s to me.

 

I wrote up every episode of the first series on the old CP server back in 2011; shame that's lost now. I was going to copy & paste it into a document, tidy it up, expand it a bit and publish it as an e-book on Amazon. Will teach me to procrastinate if nothing else.

That was an epic thread. That and your Falklands day by day.

 

Yeah, the costumes and set scream 60's. But then again, what from that time period doesn't?

 

And you know, they didn't really stray too far with some of the reboot costumes... and they look pretty damned good. Eh?

Crap, you didn't save that anywhere?  Wow, that was great.  I remember it.

Nice piece.
