These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.

to seek out new life and new civilizations,
to boldly go where no
man one has gone before.
Almost from day one, when Star Trek premiered on September 8, 1966, there was this unique relationship with NASA. Nichelle Nichols even helped recruit the original female astronauts.
