Star Trek has been a huge part of intergalactic pop culture for nearly 51 years now. Why?

For five decades, Star Trek has been part of our culture in so many different ways. Whether it’s the original series that first aired 50 years ago and the many different series that it’s spun off, or even the various films, fans can’t get enough of Star Trek. We also can’t forget the many professionals it’s inspired when they were young such as scientists, astronauts, and so many more.
There are many reasons why Star Trek remains relevant. We spoke to William Shatner, the actor whose career was forever changed thanks to his work as Captain James T. Kirk, and he gave us his theories as to why Star Trek continues to transcend time and weather.
Better Late Than Neverfeatures William Shatner, comedian Jeff Dye, former boxer George Foreman, NFL legend and analyst Terry Bradshaw, and Henry Winkler traveling to Asia for a whole set of adventures.
Thanks to an long and illustrious career, Shatner has seen a healthy amount of traveling, and during our interview with the Star Trek (he’s also an Emmy winner for his work on Boston Legal) he gave us a pretty solid advice on how to travel.
“If you can get a good night’s sleep and a decent cup of coffee somewhere, you can travel anywhere,” said Shatner. I travel light. I haven’t checked in a piece of luggage in years.

Better Late Than Never premieres tonight on NBC (10 pm et/pt).
