Here’s today’s flashback:  From 1977, it’s amazing that show canceled eight years prior was now syndication gold!  Who’d a thunk it? Certainly not Roddenberry!  Also a few notes from the last few times Nimoy was in Equus, the space shuttle Enterprise has a successful third test drive, and talk of a possible ‘fourth network’ on television (for you youngsters, back in 1977, there were only THREE major commercial networks in America, ABC, CBS, and NBC).  I remember thinking at the time that a fourth network wouldn’t happen, and I had further doubts that Trek would come back as a TV series.  Of course, more commercial networks would pop up, but not for a good 18 years (remember UPN?).
