Star Trek began in 1966 as a science fiction television show created by Gene Roddenberry. More than thirty years, four television series, and eight theatrical releases later, Star Trek is as alive and strong as ever. Although Star Trek's primary mission has always been to entertain, in the process it has become a phenomenon in and of itself. The combination of Star Trek and its loyal fans are much more than the sum of the parts; together, they represent a distinctive element in popular culture.
