Ok, maybe others have tread the path, but certainly not with the style and longevity of the Gene Roddenberry brainchild that first left space dock in 1966 and ran for three seasons on television. That TV show is iconic for several reasons. It was cancelled and then renewed after the outpouring of letters and calls from the television-watching public. And it was the first prime-time television series to have an interracial kiss between a white man and a black woman.
"And, of course, it was just darn entertaining. It was a western set in space with a playboy captaining a spaceship, getting the damsels in distress, saving civilizations, breaking the prime directive at almost every turn and serving up enough one-liners to sate generations to follow."
