It was the original Star Trek TV Series that started the whole Star Trek phenomenon. The show eventually succeeded because the members of the cast seemed to fit their roles perfectly. It’s hard to imagine anyone doing a better job than they did in representing Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s dream of the future. See how you fare in identifying these TV pioneers as you take part in:
