Google Doodle Celebrates 46 Years of Star Trek

Today is the 46th anniversary of the first airing of the pilot of the original Star Trek series created by Gene Roddenberry and starring William Shatner as James T. Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock and DeForest Kelly as Dr. Leonard McCoy. The cast also included the sultry Nichelle Nichols as Lieutenant Uhura and (now openly gay) George Takei as Hikaru Sulu.

Of course the series has gone on to spawn a whole host of spin-off television series and motion pictures.

But 46 years today, it all started on television. Live Long and Prosper!
