This Day in TV History - February 16th, 1967 - Star Trek's "Space Seed" Airs


From WVTY TV 4

A Star Trek episode introducing an iconic villain of the franchise first aired on this day in television history.

"Space Seed" is the 22nd episode of the first season of the science fiction series, Star Trek. Written by Gene L. Coon and Carey Wilber, the episode first aired on NBC on February 16th, 1967.

In the episode, the crew of the Enterprise discovers an ancient sleeper ship from Earth. When they awake one of its passengers, they discover he is a genetically-engineered superhuman who led a war against regular humanity on Earth centuries ago. Now, he aims to take over the Enterprise!

The villain of Khan Noonien Singh, played by Ricardo Montalbán, first appears here. He would later reappear in the second Star Trek film, The Wrath of Khan, also played by Montalbán. The story of Khan would also inspire the feature film, Star Trek Into Darkness. Khan's backstory was also fleshed out in a series of novels by writer Greg Cox, The Eugenics Wars.
