26 Star Trek Innovations

From William Shatner Poetry to Extraterrestrial Plushies

— July 30, 2009 — Pop Culture
William Shatner launched Star Trek (and his own career) into the mainstream with a fad that is still ridiculously strong today.

Although William Shatner isn’t only known for his role as James Tiberius Kirk (he’s on ‘Boston Legal’ now and mocking Sarah Palin), it was the role of a lifetime.

If you’ve been around for the days of William Shatner and the original Star Trek (or you just love it), then you’ll definitely dig these 26 Star Trek Innovations.
