Leonard 'Bones' McCoy Was the True Heart of Star Trek

When most people think of Star Trek , they of course think of Kirk and Spock . This isnt surprising, as they were the star and the break-out character of the series, but its easy to forget that they were two members of a triumvirate that made up the essence of the show. Ships doctor Leonard Bones McCoy was the third, and just as integral in making Star Trek a joy to watch. ...Read More... http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/XhHumZVJ_Jo/leonard-bones-mccoy-was-the-true-heart-of-star-trek-1786345097

'Journey to Babel' Is Everything Perfect About Star Trek: The Original Series

Star Trek: The Original Series has a lot of great episodes, running the gamut from the emotionally devastating (The City on the Edge of Forever) to the comedic (The Trouble With Tribbles).

As Star Trek Turns 50, a Complicated Legacy for Creator Gene Roddenberry

The  golden anniversary of “Star Trek,”  which premiered Sept. 8, 1966, spotlights the evolution of Gene Roddenberry’s creation. But what about the legacy of the man himself? After NBC canceled the original series in 1969, Roddenberry spent time in Hollywood purgatory with his most famous creation. Through the 1970s, “Star Trek” gained a devoted following in reruns, but its owner, Paramount, didn’t see an upside to re-investing in an expensive show that had already failed. Before the turning point of 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” which Roddenberry produced, he coaxed money from the property on the side. Lincoln Enterprises, a company Roddenberry formed with his wife Majel, a “Star Trek” actress, sold memorabilia from the show (long before the explosion of that industry with “Star Wars”). “My mother used to sell film clips. She would cut out two or three cells [of film], put them in a pack and sell them for five bucks at a convention. And people loved it,” says Rod Roddenberry, Gene and Majel’s son and now chief executive of Roddenberry Entertainment.   ...Read More... http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2016/08/26/as-star-trek-turns-50-a-complicated-legacy-for-creator-gene-roddenberry/?mod=WSJBlog
