Following Roddenberry’s death in 1991, Berman guided Star Trek’s four TV incarnations — Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise — until the latter’s final episode on May 13, 2005. Since that airing, Trek has been absent from the airwaves for ten years, even as the feature film franchise found new life courtesy of J.J.

More than just marking the end to the four-season run of the series, that episode brought the curtain down on a remarkable 19-year run for the franchise that started in 1987 with the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

William Shatner turns 86 today, and while the original Captain Kirk has probably met his fair share of Star Trek fans, James Cawley may be the biggest. The 49-year-old Elvis impersonator from Ticonderoga, N.Y., has meticulously built a faithful reconstruction of the entire set from the original 1960s Star Trek television series.
