Star Trek: The Original Series Gets Its Own Google Doodle
Most television shows arenít still beloved forty-six-years later. An overwhelming majority that didnít hit 100 episodes arenít even remembered for that long, but Star Trek has always been a special case. More people love Star Trek: The Original Series today than did so during its original run in 1966. Apparently, a few Google employees are among them too.
The search engine, known for having fun on its home page, debuted a brand new Google Doodle this morning honoring the forty-sixth anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series. The graphic allows fans, and bored, indifferent web browsers, to navigate the Google letters as theyíre dressed up to look like the showís main characters. You can check out the graphic on Googleís homepage here and an image from the game's third level below...
Love Star Trek or hate it, the Doodle will be hanging out on Googleís front page through tomorrow evening; so, you might as well have some fun with it and play along. Itís a better time than actually working, and unlike the one the programmers did with the hurdles, you donít need to move the keys quickly to be successful at this one.
Happy 46th Star Trek: The Original Series. Youíve earned this Doodle fair and square.
