Star Trek is an American science fiction media franchise based on the television series created by Gene Roddenberry. The first television series, simply called Star Trek and now referred to as “The Original Series,” debuted in 1966 and aired for three seasons on the television network NBC. It followed the interstellar adventures of Captain James T Kirk (William Shatner) and his crew aboard the starship USS Enterprise, a space exploration vessel, built by the interstellar federal republic United Federation of Planets in the twenty-third century. The Star Trek canon of the franchise includes The Original Series, an animated series, four spin-off television series, its film franchise and an upcoming television series scheduled to debut in 2017 in addition to further adaptations made in several media for decades since the original. — Wikipedia

    Human infants have just two instinctive fears at birth: the fear of falling, and the fear of loud noises. Every other fear is learned as we begin to experience what it’s like to be a separate entity in a world of endless variety.

The Klingon above is the handiwork of the Star Trek: Discovery makeup team, which has earned an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special (for their work on "Will You Take My Hand?"). The nominated Discovery team includes: Glenn Hetrick, […]
