- Tagline: Space, the final frontier…
Space… the final frontier. With those four words aired for the first time on broadcast television in 1966, a massive science fiction franchise was born. You could argue that Star Trek was the first entertainment franchise of any kind and that nothing else has done a better job of maintaining a constant presence on television and in the news.
When fans got the news that, after season 3, Star Trek was totally canceled, it may have seemed like the end of an era. But in truth, the franchise was just getting started.
Airing reruns in syndication grew Star Trek’s audience, and it has since spawned more than a dozen spinoff series on television and now on streaming.

Lower Decks Cast News
On June 3, 1969 fans got the news that Star Trek, after airing three seasons on network television, was canceled. That didn’t end their interest in boldly going.
Ten years later, Star Trek emerged from the ashes as a massive movie franchise, with the debut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979. Since then, the beloved sci-fi staple has released more than a dozen different big screen adventures.
