Trivia:
The story that the USS Enterprise's registry number "NCC-1701" was derived from Walter M. Jefferies' antique Waco biplane (FAA registration NC17704) is mostly apocryphal. According to Jefferies himself, the Star Fleet "NCC" was a mix of the original international codes "NC" for United States commercial vehicles and "CC CC" for Russian vehicles. The "1701" was selected for visual clarity, with "17" representing the seventeenth basic Federation ship design, and "01" marking Enterprise as the first commissioned vessel of that design. Interestingly, there was once in fact a Waco YKS biplane registered with the FAA as NC17701.See more »

THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL., 9 June 2002
Author: mack3175 from Metairie, Louisiana

This show changed the way we looked at science fiction forever. Before there was The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and the prequel Enterprise. There was Captain James T. Kirk and crew on the Starship Enterprise. Exploring new worlds and new life. Traveling through time and space. Leonard Nimoy is great has Mr. Spock, the half human/half alien science officer and second in command. Deforest Kelly is also great Has Dr. Leonard Bones Mccoy, our favorite whiney Doctor, who came out with favorite sayings like "He's dead Jim" and "I'm a Doctor not a brick layer". The special effects may have seemed hoaky at times. But the show was still great in it's day. Gene Roddenberry was a genuis when he created this show. The show was well acted by everyone . So Star Trek fans live long and prosper.
