1979: "Star Trek: The Motion Picture," a movie adaptation of the short-lived sci-fi television series, premieres in theaters 10 years after the TV series went off the air. It set a box office record for highest weekend gross, making $11.8 million in its first weekend despite mixed reviews from critics. The movie, starring the original cast from the TV show, including William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols and George Takei, would spawn a film franchise that continues today.
