Where Star Trek is going now

Future Trek

Star Trek at 45 is revitalized.

The TV show, which introduced us to William Shatner as Captain Kirk in 1966, has evolved and expanded over the decades into a full-blown franchise and now, as it moves into the future, it is sexier, more aggressive and more character-driven than ever.

And itís reaching new audiences in ways that were just science fiction a few decades ago.

Peter Berger, the Oscar-nominated editor of Fatal Attraction and four Star Trek features, died Sept. 22 of leukemia at his home in Calabasas, Calif. He was 67.

Well either way, now you can feel like your favorite character when youíre lounging around the house.
