Star Trek Premiers (1966)

Though the original Star Trek series was cancelled in its third season, the groundbreaking show—in which William Shatner's memorable Captain Kirk leads the crew of the starship Enterprise—developed a cult following of "Trekkies." Over the next four decades, the influential science-fiction franchise spawned five more Star Trek series, more than 10 feature films, and myriad conventions.

Correct me if I'm wrong (or just take more points), the perfered term is "trecker(s)" over treckkie(s).

One of my favorite anecdotes from my Basic Training days (ask my family as they roll their eyes when I tell the story for the 1000th time):

We all had to pull guard duty in the barracks after hours. One young man found out the "hard way" that the intercom worked both ways. I was awake since I had next watch. This guy walked up under the intercom and said loudly:

"beam me up, Scotty, there's no intelligent life down here!".

After a moment, came the response:

"Beam your ass down to the Orderly Room and report to the Charge of Quarters".

I thought the unfortunate would crap his pants. I laughed so hard that I nearly cried.

I especially enjoyed Ricardo Montalban with breasts as "Khan" in "Star Trek II--the Wrath of Khan." One of those magical movie moments you'll never forget.

cool story bro. Probably how the saying gained popularity I've heard that one from time to time "beam me up, Scotty, there's no intelligent life down here!" also without the intelligent life bit, I've heard it been loosely spoken, as in taking an aeroplane flight, a super fast lift in a high rise building, or generally things involving getting high so to speak.
