In case you didn’t already know, this year is the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. With the new movie and TV series on their way, it’s going to be a great year for Trekkies. For the casual Star Trek fan, those big releases might be enough, but for the die-hard fan, that’s way too long to wait. Fortunately, Roddenberry Entertainment knows this and they’re doing something special every day this year for their fans to celebrate.
Late last year, Roddenberry Entertainment announced that they will open their vault and offer never-before-seen photos, scripts, and other rare mementos to commemorate Gene Roddenberry and the development of Star Trek every day of 2016. They’re calling it the 366 Project and all new content is being made available on Facebook and Twitter.

Now, the vault is open and what has been unveiled is exquisite. In addition to a couple of charming on-set photos of Gene, there are several pages of notes on the portrayal of women in the show, poetry, and other beautiful insights. Seeing Mr. Roddenberry’s vision of humanity’s future in this way is truly a great gift.
Entertainment Weekly also got three bonus images: a drawing of the Enterprise from Star Trek: The Motion Picture‘ storyboards, a photo of Leonard Nimoy in the makeup chair, and a picture of an early draft of Star Trek‘s opening narration from August 2, 1966.
Live Long and Prosper!
