To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Star Trek, one of the greatest television franchises of all time, SCIENCE will have the world-premiere two-hour event Trek Nation on Wednesday, November 30, at 8 PM.
The tribute follows Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father’s singular vision for the future. Through interviews with fans, including big names like George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane and many notable Star Trek alums, Trek Nation chronicles a son’s journey to discover his father’s work that helped define science fiction.
Star Trek, a catalyst which has fostered an enhanced understanding of the human condition and man’s constant search for a better world, is a phenomenon that goes beyond entertainment and into the world of politics, space travel, social morality and more.
Drawing on hours of exclusive footage, including never-before-seen home movies from the Roddenberry family collection and the first-ever Star Trek convention, Trek Nation demonstrates that Roddenberry’s work has not only inspired legions of fans across the globe, but generated a cultural movement.
Tune into Trek Nation this Wednesday, November 30, at 8 PM on SCIENCE.
