Star Trek at 50: A Cultural Phenomenon
The Ort Library is pleased to offer a new display on the 50th anniversary of Star Trek which was launched on NBC in 1966. The original show has spawned four television shows (a 5th will come out next year), a Saturday morning cartoon, and twelve movies (a 13th will come out this year).
“Beam me up, Scotty”, “He’s Dead, Jim”, and “Live Long and Prosper” are just some of the catch phrases from the show that are well known.
The displays are available on the 3rd and 5th floors of the library and will be up through the end of August. There are also several Star Trek novels available for checkout available on the 3rd floor of the library.
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
