On this Labor Day in history, World Footprints host Tonya (Johnson) Fitzpatrick was born.  Having grown up as a “Trekkie” today also carries another special memory.

Star Trek Mr Spock and Captain Kirk

On Sept. 2, 1969, the original Star Trek aired its final episode after running for only three years and never placing better than No. 52 in the ratings.  It later becomes a cult classic in reruns, spawning five additional television series, 12 theatrical films, and numerous books, games, toys, and other products. Enjoy viewing a piece of history below (don’t worry, this isn’t a video of Tonya’s birth).
