12 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I JUNE 2021 Feature Article by Happy Holden I-CONNECT007 It's fun to think back to the days when I first saw Star Trek on TV. In September 1966, I was a sophomore in college, studying chemical engineering. As a science fiction fan for many years, I was excited about this new show, so I would get to the student union building early in order to get a seat in the TV room. I got inter- Star Trek, the Original Series: An Homage from a Fan ested in science fiction from a few good mov- ies like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954) and Forbidden Planet (1956). en I took up reading the magazine Scientific American at the library. Many a night, aer listening to my favorite radio programs (we did not own a TV in 1954), I would walk to the public library and check out the classic science fiction books by H.G. Wells or Jules Verne, among others (Figure 1). Figure 1: From elementary school until college, most of my science fiction was a few good movies and the classic SF books from the masters.
