Kirk, pointy-eared Vulcan Mr. Spock, Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy, and the rest of the intrepid crew of the starship Enterprise, boldly going “where no man has gone before.” Succumbing to low ratings, the show’s voyages lasted only three seasons, but later gained an immense cult following in syndication.
