Tuesday, September 8, 2015


A surprise came my way this morning: one of my electronic devices told me that "1999" was not the correct year, and it proceeded to tell me to reset the date and time. No problem, of course. "It's September 8th today?"

What is it about that date?

On this day in 1966 Star Trek premiered on NBC. As I noted on a previous posting, the series was actually shown first on CTV a couple of days earlier -- same episode; "The Man Trap". (I've since found out that Star Trek was a "big hit" here in Canada.)

As first seen on September 6th, 1966...

... but shooting on the concept started almost two years earlier...
