Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the original Star Trek, a show that, despite limping through three years of its original run from 1966-69, remains highly relevant half a century later. The thirteenth feature film inspired by the show — Star Trek Beyond — was released this summer, and the sixth TV spin-off, Discovery, will be arriving in January. Bottom line: Star Trek isn’t going anywhere.

To celebrate this historic occasion, Empire is offering up this collection of articles that explores the franchise, with an emphasis on the original series.
