You have approximately five Earth hours (PST) to ready your ears and mini-dress in honor of Star Trek’s 40th birthday.

Just try and imagine where we’d be without our favorite Enterprisers. Star Trek modeled technology is so pervasive today, I shudder to think what our society might have looked like if we’d based the future on some of the other technologies being debuted on the small screen in 1966.

Without Star Trek, we would never have seen this.
Or this.
Or this.
