NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - For 50 years, "trekkers" have gone where no man has gone before.
The original "Star Trek" premiered September 8, 1966 and ran for three seasons thanks to created Gene Roddenberry. With 50 years under the belt, the television series has warped into five more shows and 13 big screen films including the latest "Star Trek Beyond."
Most might not even know that the Star Trek theme song has lyrics. The lyrics are written from the point of view of a lover left behind while a man journey's to the stars.
Here are the full lyrics:
The rim of the star-light
Is wand'ring in star-flight
He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Strange love a star woman teaches.
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
A new original series "Star Trek Discovery" will hit the web in 2017. Happy Birthday "Star Trek."

New York Fashion Mess
New York Fashion Week didn't end on a good note for rapper turned fashion designer Kanye West.
He debuted his fourth season of Yeezy collection for Adidas on Roosevelt Island. West withheld the location until three hours before the start time but the show started later than expected. Guests waited in the blazing sun for the event to start and it even caused some models to faint.
More than 100 models were on deck dressed in leotards, two pieces, thigh high boots and fleece hoodies for the hour long show. Some models stepped away for a second to get a sip of water.
Kim Kardashian posted a picture of and sisters Kylie and Kendall sporting pieces from Ye's latest collection.
