"Space - The Final Frontier."
1 January 2018 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

This often-intriguing, 90-minute technology-documentary from the Smithsonian Channel proudly commemorates the 50-year anniversary of Star Trek which first made its TV debut back in 1966.

Through interviews, stills, and archival footage - "Building Star Trek" tells the curios viewer, plain and simple, all about what space travel dreams are made of.

Throughout this informative presentation we are shown how modern-day space-travel technology is clearly striving to emulate the SyFy/Fantasy gadgetry of Star Trek.

All-in-all - "Building Star Trek" is definitely well-worth a view whether you are a die-hard fan of the classic, iconic TV series, or not.
