When people think of Sci Fi, they think of Star Trek.
After 40 years, this groundbreaking show still draws in fans. All the classic sci fi cliches are there - dodgy sets, clunky special effects, the stupendous creatures and the hammy acting, and don't forget the comely earth females in their skimpy uniforms! But beneath all this - a burning desire for quality, a thrilling chase for stories that challenge the way we see the world and an unshakeable faith that tomorrow will see a better world.
Audiences new to Star Trek will be impressed by the bold production design. Those with an eye on history will be thrilled by the audacity of casting and storytelling in 60's USA.
No matter how much ham you can slice off him, there is no denying the magnetism of William Shatner's Captain James Tiberius Kirk, one of the titans of popular culture. His tone of cavalier fun, blended with a higher sense of purpose - that, ladies and gentlemen, is Star Trek in a nutshell. It is this sparkling humanity that forgives the deficiencies, and explains why people are still such fans two generations after it originally aired.
Tune in to experience the legend for yourself.
