Originally Broadcast: September 08, 1966

Several weeks ago, I reviewed the first couple of seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation for our Netflix Review feature here at Geeks Of Doom. I had an enjoyable time delving into some nostalgia that I decided to take a step back further and dive into the original series of Star Trek, complete with the remastering and updated visual effects throughout all three seasons, encompassing the good (classic memorable episodes), the bad (Spock’s Brain and Season Three), and the Ugly (Space Hippies).

Commencing in 1966, Gene Roddenberry‘s creation would eventually become a franchise revered and followed by millions of fans worldwide. Despite this, the history of the original series would become affected by budgetary constraints and poor ratings in archaic scales, limiting the primary voyages of the USS Enterprise to three seasons only.

As is prevalently known, Star Trek follows the voyages of the Enterprise, on its peaceful mission of exploration into unknown areas of the galaxy – attempting to meet and contact new civilizations, and represent the interests of the Federation. Lead by Captain Kirk (William Shatner), and accompanied by First Officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley) among many others, the team aboard the starship would become known in-universe as legendary historical figures trailblazing their way into the unknown – and create such an element of veneration associated with the ship that the name Enterprise would be assigned to the Federation’s future flag ships.

‘Growing Pains’ Actor Andrew Koenig Found Dead In Vancouver

Andrew KoenigEarlier last week, close friends and fans of actor Andrew Koenig took over popular sites like Twitter asking people to keep their eyes open for Koenig, who had recently gone missing in Vancouver, where he was said to be visiting friends. Sadly, the actor’s body was found today in one of his favorite places to go while in Canada, Stanley Park, where he had committed suicide. He was 41 years old.

Many had expressed their worry for Koenig after his disappearance on Valentine’s Day due to a history of depression and difficulties with life, and in those instances, this is always the worst case scenario.

Koenig was best known as for his role as Richard “Boner” Stabone, Kirk Cameron’s best friend on the 80s TV series Growing Pains. He also appeared on shows like My Two Dads and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. His stint on Star Trek was fitting as his father, Walter Koenig, played Chekov on the original series with William Shatner. The father and son appeared together in a film called InAlienable in 2008. The actor, who was also a writer and producer, also did voice work for cartoon series like G.I. Joe and appeared as The Joker in Batman: Dead End, a fan-made film.
