September 8th Star Trek Day
Gene Roddenberry created Star Trek using an international cast when international relationships were at an all-time high stress level. The series began in 1966 and when American and Russian relations were near an all time low.
Yet while the Starship Enterprise was an American vessel it was crewed by international characters from all over the world. (And in some from beyond the world) The enemies were creates from other planets where the human race, as well as other races, had to work together to solve problems.
