This year marks 55 years since the pilot episode of The Original Series, “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” debut on television sets across America. Now fans from around the world are invited to join in a celebration starting at 5:30 PM, PT/8:30 PM, ET/1:30 AM BST. The event will be streamed live from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA.
