Red Carpet Flashback! 40 Years of 'Star Trek' Premieres

Star Trek premiered on TV in 1966, but it wasn’t until 1979 that the first Star Trek movie was released. Since then, fans haven’t had to wait more than seven years between movies — and red carpet events. Star Trek’s popularity has now supported 13 movies over almost 40 years, smoothly transitioning from the original series cast to the Next Generation to the J.J. Abrams reboot stars. Watch the faces and fashions change, and casts occasionally intermingle, at events from the 1970s to the 2010s.
