Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The episode {Requiem for Methuselah}, in which Kirk's heart is broken by the death of an android woman with whom he has fallen in love, was first aired on Valentine's Day, 1969.
  • In 2000, Star Trek is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the largest number of spin-off productions, including the feature film series and the numerous TV series.
  • The first interracial kiss on American network television was in the episode {Plato's Stepchildren}, which aired on 22 Nov 1968, when Captain Kirk kissed Lieutenant Uhura. The studio expressed some concern, and it was suggested instead that Spock should kiss Uhura 'to make it less of a problem for the southern [US] audience'. Some stations in the South originally refused to air the episode. Kirk did not kiss Uhura *voluntarily*; they were forced to do it by aliens controlling their bodies. So the first interracial kiss, although between two of the good guys, was the moral equivalent of sexual assault.
  • The 'Star Trek Crews' from all the [Star Trek] series were ranked #2 in [TV Guide]'s list of the "25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends" ({1 August 2004 issue}).
  • Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett are the only actors to appear in both the first ({The Cage}) and last ({Turnabout Intruder}) episodes of the series.
  • Shortly after the cancellation of the series, the staff of the marketing department of the NBC TV network confronted the network executives and berated them for canceling [Star Trek], the most profitable show on the network in terms of demographic profiling of the ratings. They explained that although the show was never higher than #52 in the general ratings, its audience profile had the largest concentration of viewers of ages 16 to 39, the most sought after television audience for advertisers to reach. In other words, the show, despite the low ratings, had the precise audience advertisers hungered for, which was more than ample justification to consider the show a big success.
  • In the episode {Spectre of the Gun}, Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Dr. McCoy are placed in the OK Corral as the Clanton gang, facing off against Wyatt Earp and his brothers. In the 1957 film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, DeForest Kelley played the part of Morgan Earp.
  • Leonard Nimoy is the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.
  • Sulu and Uhura didn't have first names in this series. Sulu did get a first name (Hikaru) but not until Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Fans have tried to give Uhura a first name ("Nyota" or "Penda") but there has never been any official confirmation. Gene Roddenberry said Uhura has only the one name, which is Swahili for "freedom". In the eleventh movie in the series, however, the name "Nyota" has been finally entered as her canonical first name.
  • Dr. McCoy's handheld "medical scanners" were actually modified salt and pepper shakers, purchased originally for use in the episode [{The Man Trap}], in which a character was seen using a salt shaker. They were of Scandinavian design, and onscreen were not recognizable as salt shakers; so a few generic salt shakers were borrowed from the studio commissary, and the "futuristic" looking shakers became McCoy's medical instruments.
