Good morning and Happy Star Trek Day!
In 1979 James T. Kirk (William Shtner), the captain of the Starship Enterprise, explored the whole galaxy with his crew and goes on several adventures as they fight evil forces together.
Here are a couple of cool facts on Star Trek (I loved it when I was young):
1) The Vulcan salute is actually a Hebrew blessing – it was borrowed from something Leonard Nimoy had witnessed as a child in a service at an Orthodox Jewish synagogue.
2) The command chair and platform was sold for an impressive $304,750 in 2002 (check out the 10 of the Most Expensive ‘Star Trek’ Items Ever Auctioned)
Have a great day!
