Happy 42nd Birthday, Star Trek! -- Today is the 42nd anniversary of the original NBC broadcast of Star Trek, or as the young 'uns probably think it was called, Star Trek: The Original Series.

Coincidentally, my wife and I watched the Next Generation episode "Relics" last night, the one in which Scotty is rescued from a 75-year transporter loop and brought into the 24th century.

I can remember that episode bringing a tear to my eye back when it was originally broadcast, and other than the heavy-handed "Make Scotty feel relevant, Mr. La Forge" subplot, its sincerity and overall excellence pay great tribute to what was so great about Star Trek.

I grew up in the 1970s watching the reruns and the animated series, and watched every episode of TNG and DS9, only growing weary during Voyager's run. I recently watched quite a few Enterprise episodes, and overall I feel very positive about all the series, and I am greatly looking forward to the JJ Abrams-directed movie when it comes out next year.

Happy Birthday, Star Trek.
