“I couldn’t have imagined, no one could have, really, that the TV shows we did so long ago would find a new audience today, that the films would continue, and that there would be so many spin-offs. It seems that the future we depicted way back when is inching closer every day to reality.
“To those of you who have been with us for so long, my sincere thanks for your interest. For those of you who are new to Star Trek, who are discovering it through the recent movie and are about to explore the franchise in its infinite diversity… welcome. Come aboard and enjoy.
