Trivia
Mr Spock's Vulcan neck pinch would be the thing the character would become most famous for.

Gene Roddenberry believed the show's initial higher than expected ratings when the series entered syndication were a fluke and expected the sudden birth of interest in the series to die down.
Share this
Leonard Nimoy's makeup had a faint greenish hue to it, because of his green Vulcan blood. Because the makeup was hand-mixed, the amount of green varied slightly, and in many shots (even close-ups) it's not really visible.

The color of the Enterprise's phaser beams differ between episodes. In some they are blue, while in others the are red, yellow, or orange. The animation for the photon torpedoes also changes from a red-orange color to the more-often-seen white-colored animation.

In most hand-to-hand combat scenes throughout the series, with the exception of close-up shots, the characters fighting are played by very obvious stunt doubles and not the principal actors.

Q
How big was the Enterprise model?
A
The original shooting model of the U.S.S. Enterprise measures 11 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 32 inches tall (3.4 x 1.5 x 0.8 metres), weighing in at about 200 pounds (90 kg). It is currently on display at the gift shop of the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C.
Q
Who designed the Enterprise model?
A
The model of the U.S.S. Enterprise was designed by Walter M. "Matt" Jeffries. Nearly all Federation ships featured throughout "Star Trek" are based on this model. The crawl spaces on ships were named "Jeffries Tubes" in his honor.
Q
What was William Shatner's next job after Star Trek's cancellation?
A
He worked in summer stock theater. In 1969 after learning of ST Trek: TOS's cancellation, Shatner was in somewhat of a dire financial situation due to his then wife's filing for divorce and being suddenly unemployed. He contacted his agent who got him work in summer stock theater for the next few months and he bought a used pickup truck with camper shell attached. The sudden reality of no income, bills, his impending divorce and being low on funds made him realize that he couldn't afford even economy style motels while working. He then set off driving to each and every location to work as a cast member in Some Like It Hot and the truck with camper shell actually paid off in the long run. He lived this way from memorial day weekend up through labor day weekend that year when his summer job ended. And from then on William Shatner was able to keep busy as an actor working steadily in various prime time television shows which paid well and he was able to stay afloat financially.
