Bio Looks at the Genius of Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek"

On June 3, 1969, the final episode of Star Trek aired. But while it was the end of the original series television series, it was just the beginning of the franchise. Since that day 45 years ago, fans have continued to watch the adventures of Kirk, Spock, Bones, and the original Enterprise 1701. From those adventures we've learned about life, how to understand and respect others, and how to build technology that has changed our world. To mark this anniversary, Laurie Ulster has written a piece on the BIO website that highlights some of the genius of Gene Roddenberry's creation, and always what she has gained from watching the series over the years.

Read the full retrospective on the BIO website.
