Starlog Archives: 30th Anniversary of Star Trek
The first episode of Star Trek aired on September 8, 1966. No one could have anticipated the impact the sci-fi adventure show would have on pop culture. The original series was cancelled after just three seasons, but fifty years later, its legacy carries on. Starlog magazine celebrated the Star Trek anniversary every ten years in issues cover dated October. Since I am covering issues of the magazine from 1986, 1996 and 2006, we will be seeing a few articles this month celebrating anniversaries of Star Trek.
The first one we’re going to look at is the 30th anniversary in 1996 just as the original cast was getting ready to retire.
