There were 79 episodes made in total. Although even today, Star Trek has one of the most spirited, loyal fan bases in the history of television, ratings for the show were terrible. There was a third season only because of efforts by the fans, which ranged from letters, to sticking “Mr. Spock for President” bumper stickers on NBC employee’s cars. Star Trek is listed as the TV show with the most spin-offs in the history of TV by Guinness World Records, including Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Eleven films have been made, such as The Search For Spock, The Voyage Home, and the newest, released in May of this year, Star Trek.<br />For more information, visit<br />
