Television critic and columnist Marcus Berkmann takes a look at the 50-year history of one of the most iconic science-fiction series of all time, Star Trek.

Berkmann looks back to the original Star Trek series, killed off after only three years, and explains how it rose again through the Hollywood movies and remains in rude health with today’s retake. Along the way he seeks to answer some of the most important questions. Why did Kirk’s shirt always get torn in a fight? What was the most number of times Uhuru said “Hailing frequencies open, sir” in an episode? And what is the worst insult in Klingon?

Berkmann is a freelance journalist. He has been television critic for the Daily Mail and Sunday Express, written sports columns for Punch, The Independent on Sunday and Daily Express, and had a long-running pop column in The Spectator. He now writes for The Independent magazine and Private Eye and is film critic of The Oldie. Berkmann is also author of Rain Men and Zimmer Men, Fatherhood – The Truth, and A Shed of One’s Own.
