The industry of Star Trek. How it has spawned 6 television series, produced 10 films (with an 11th in pre-production), dozens of computer and video games, hundreds of novels and is regarded as one of the biggest cult phenomenons of modern times, with the franchise and merchandise earning billions of dollars so how did it all begin? From here we then look at Gene Roddenberry and his original ethos for the show of a possible future where humanity had not only reached the stars, but had finally put an end to prejudice, war and poverty. But, mainly, it explored what it meant to be human. Week after week, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy were thrust into extraordinary situations, challenging them to learn and grow into something better than they were. A unique idea that captivated the hearts and minds of millions of people. Then we will show the spin off series, the films, merchandising, conventions and also show how fans have started making their own movies featuring cast members, who lend their services for free directing and starring to produce movies that fans can download for free on the internet.
