A To Z Challenge S is for STAR TREK and SEAQUEST

Two sci fi series hit in my S section.
This video is from the final episode of STAR TREK Enterprise, which has been the last of the Trek franchise.  This video sums it up better than mere words could.

STAR TREK is the first, the original series from 1966 to 1970 was the first time science fiction had been done with a continuing cast and complex stories on social issues of the day.  It launched a franchise of four network spin offs, 12 motion pictures and countless on line continuations of the original series itself.

SeaQuest was Steven Spielbergs take on the classic 1960s' sci fi series Voyage to the Bottom of the sea.  Unfortunately NBC meddled with the series and it suffered terribly after the first season.  It still had some good episodes and it introduced Roy Schieder to a new generation.
