Star Trek first hit the airwaves on September 8, 1966 — exactly 45 years ago today. While the original series lasted only 79 episodes, it went on to spawn five spin-off shows and eleven feature films (with another in the works). Here’s a peek at the original NBC pilot sell sheet, used to introduce the show to advertisers and affiliates.
The booklet introduces us to the series and the characters who were soon to become household names, along with a few — like Chief Medical Officer Piper and Communications Officer Alden — who didn’t get the chance to become series regulars.
