It’s been over 50 years since Star Trek first aired, but it still remains a cultural juggernaut. The original series, created by Gene Roddenberry ran from 1966 to 1969 before finding a second life in syndication as ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ (1987-94).

It was adapted into a big-screen movie by J.J. Abrams in 2009 and most recently in ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ set roughly a decade before the events of the original series. Star Trek brought some of the most memorable characters of TV, including the brash Captain Kirk, the logical Commander Spock, and Lieutenanj’ original series  up to in 2019?
