It was only appropriate that Billy Nye say a few words before the Governors Award presentation for <em>Star Trek </em>at the Creative Arts Emmys. After being introduced by Hayma Washington, Nye said of <em>Star Trek</em>: “It may have started off as an entertainment series but it changed the world — and I feel that it changed the world for the better.” The monolithic sci-fi franchise, as Nye put it, looked at how takes a look at the universe and beyond in “perfect and imperfect harmony.”…

It’s been 50 years since Captain James T Kirk and pointy-eared pal Spock first strode onto our television screens, bringing us wide-eyed Apollo-era optimism, the world’s first interracial TV snog and furry space critters named Tribbles. It would be another 13 years, in the wake of Star Wars’ spectacular box office success, before the crew of the Enterprise made it to the big screen with 1979’s middling ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’. Since then there have been a round dozen films in total, with a 13th, the Simon Pegg-penned ‘Star Trek: Beyond’, due to hit multiplexes later this month.
