09/08/2005: Great Days in Popular Culture History:
On this date in 1966, the first episode of Star Trek aired. It was "The Man Trap", and I remember it well. The monster du jour in that episode (referred to as "The Incredible Salt Vampire" by David Gerrold in his delightful book The Trouble With Tribbles) scared the shit out of me when I saw it back then.
