Star Trek is celebrating 40 years. Forty years of a phenomenon. Forty years were marked on 8th September 2006, the date an episode was first aired – The Man Trap.
For the 40th anniversary we asked people, fans from all over the world, to tell us what Star Trek means to them. Most of them are fans, some of them were involved with the Star Trek industry.
