Happy 50th Star Trek!

 Oh my god---Star Trek turned fifty today. Fifty years ago, on September 8, 1966, the first episode, "The Man Trap" aired. It would air new episodes until 1969, then be cancelled. Its three seasons (say what you will about the third season, it got the numbers of episodes up to number necessary for reruns to happen) would be in constant reruns until its cult status lead to Star Trek movies, and later incarnations of the universe (some of which "predate" the original series).

And in celebration of the fifty anniversary of Star Trek, we proudly present the uncensored version of the Vulcan "Live long and prosper" blessing commonly recited by Spook, first officer of the starship, Enterprise.

Gene rejected this super enlightened version of the blessing.
The full initiated version is "Live long, eat your vegetables, and wipe your butt real good."
