Star Trek (The Original Series) is an American science fiction tv series, that has been created by Gene Roddenberry and became a cult. The oOriginal Series gave a start to a whole generation of tv shows and movies, but the classic episodes, aired between 1966 and 1969 created a base for a cultural layer with music, fashion, art and even lifestyle.
The main characters of the Original Series are the trio of spacemen – Captain Kirk – the captain of the Starship Enterprise, which travels space to discover planets and species, Mr Spock – scientist, who lacks emotions due to his planet Vulcan origin and Dr. McCoy – the doctor and biological scientist.
Captain Kirk is famous for his courage and being a womanizer, who has at least a little fling with a new women in every episode. Mr Spock is smart and driven only by logic, who has an attitude towards human weaknesses and is immune to a list of exotic deceases.
Dr McCoy is an intelligent gentleman, who probably is the most cryptic of the three. We know just a little about his past and his passions.
The other members of the crew are playing second roles but have also become symbols of Star Trec epoch. Uhura – the ship communications officer, became a role model for many African-American women, like Whoopy Goldberg, who said that she saw Uhura on Television and told her family “A black woman on TV, it ain’t no mad!”. Needless to say, that Uhura is an example of discipline, talent and beauty.
The series feature great costume work, which nowadays can look clumsy or even funny, but the approach the costumes and monster characters have been created deserves all the respect. And note, that the first episode of Star Wars – an example of a technological and costume-design break-through, was out 10 years later than the first episode of Star Trek.
The costumes of the female characters are always as erotic as possible. The skirts of female crew members are indecently short and the clothes of female inhabitants of other planets are indecently open.
