I would guess there are probably over 100 original Star Trek episodes. There are, in fact, only 79. I can guarantee that I have seen each one of those episodes at least 5 times each.
Ever since that first episode in 1966, I have been a "Trekker."
I even confess to going to a Star Trek Convention in Grand Rapids (MI) once back in the mid-1970s . . . and it was awesome. (No, I did not paint my face green)

Newer versions of "Star Trek" have come and gone. The most recent "big screen" Star Treks featuring Chris Pine are fresh and I have seen them all.
Over 50 years of "Going where no man has gone before" with Captain Kirk, I have truly enjoyed the ride.
Mr. Sulu . . . Set Coordinates for Bay City, Michigan. Take us out of here. Warp Factor 9. ENGAGE
