This past weekend was surely an exciting one because it was the first ever “Star Trek: Mission New York” convention and it would unite the races of the galaxy in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the original “Star Trek” television show. According to my research, that first episode aired on September 8th of 1966 and while I didn’t watch it during its original run, I recall watching it as reruns at a very young age at my Grandmothers apartment on a small black and white television in her kitchen. Ahh memories. Above us hung a massive sign announcing the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” show which is coming to CBS All Access.
The long hallway down to the convention had some great banners hanging up and each of them bore a popular phrase from the franchise.
