Just to clarify, "The Cage" was not broadcast on Sept 8, 1966, nor was it the the first one broadcast. The episode " The Man Trap" was broadcast that day.

I know the man trap was the first episode shown to the Nation. but i always liked the pilot episode the Cage With Capt. Pike Jeffrey Hunter Nailed it.

Yeah, wasn't trying to start anything.

However, rather than The Cage, " The Menagerie" was the one that hooked me. Besides incorporating " The Cage ", the idea that you do wrong for the right reason always fascinated me considering I always wanted to disobey my father.

True, think this post i found says it better then i could.

50 years worth of new frontiers have really changed the world, hasn't it? The technologies and inventions that Star Trek inspired are too numerous to list... Yet, the people who've been inspired to greater things after watching Star Trek out number those new technologies a thousand-fold... Trek has always really been about something more that science, technology, and philosophy. The big picture of Star Trek has always been Humanity.

So, here's to you. To us.

Here's to all our dreams of better times, to all our ambitions for the future, and to all our hopes for a world where all man kind can cooperate, care, and work together for a better future...

Here's to all the friends, family, and other loved ones we've lost, and to all those cherished loved ones who still live, and help us in our daily struggles...

Here's to all those innovators who put an idea to paper, and then took it to production, bringing us out of the stone age, and into the future...

I actually just finished my many month-long journey through the Voyager series, since I didn't watch it much when it was on TV.

For a while, I was impatient to have the series conclude...especially when I realized it was 7 seasons x ~25 episodes. But then I guess the show grew on me and I was almost sad that it was over.

Now I'm attempting to watch Enterprise. I tried once before, but failed because of the dumbest Star Trek theme song ever, the plucky Scott Bakula's decidedly un-Captain like demeanor and the *****y duck faced Vulcan. But maybe starting from the beginning will smooth those perceptions over.

Except for the theme song. Very not Star Trek.

Ehh... She's an attractive woman otherwise, but it looks like her lips were stung by a bee and is in dire need of an epipen. That just doesn't do it for me. But if swollen lips float your boat, then have at it.
