| Star Trek - the
original series - is frequently referred to as TOS within fan circles
in order to differentiate it from the other Star Trek series.
It was made at the Desilu Studios from 1966 to 1969. The show wasn't a big commercial hit but its ethos of equality for all, and the storylines that pointed up and critised then current issues such as the Vietnam war and racism, gained it a a core of fans who have kept it alive for over 40 years now.
Star Trek was followed with an animated television series of 22 stories in 1973-4, and eventually a movie series.
