Just wanted to add my voice to those wishing 'Star Trek' a happy 40th birthday. My only regret is that De Kelley and the Great Bird Of The Galaxy are no longer with us to celebrate the milestone. (It still seems wrong that they didn't live long enough to see the 21st Century ushered in.)
So much of the TV Universe owes its existence to 'Star Trek', especially the concept of alternate dimensions.
Here's hoping that someday it will return to the airwaves with a new variation, not just with a new movie.
