Star Trek: The 40th Anniversary

Believe it or not, Star Trek celebrates its 40th anniversary of its TV debut in 1966 today. Unfortunately, there are now currently no running series of Trek, after Enterprise was canceled last year. However, there is talk of the 11th Star Trek movie to come out, directed by JJ Abrams (Alias, Lost) and reportedly revolving around the time of Spock and Kirk at the Star Fleet Academy (Matt Damon is rumored to play the young Kirk). The original Kirk and Spock, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, gave a playful interview about whether today's generation of kids would like the Original Series. The Original Series is now being reaired with digitally enhanced special effects, as a type of honoring of its 40 years as a show (see video exerpts here and here). So how will you celebrate Star Trek's 40th?
