      Popular sci-fi tv series created by Gene Roddenberry featuring a group of future explorers who traverse the galaxy in their ship, the USS Enterprise, and the various encounters and adventures they have. The series starred William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley. It has spawned numerous spinoffs and movies since its original introduction in 1966. The opening theme is well-known for the last line in the voiceover in which Capt. James T. Kirk says that the Enterprise's mission is "To boldly go where no man has gone before."

      During the opening wraparound segment, the Cryptkeeper rewords the famous line, "To boldly go where no man has gone before" as "To Boldly going where no ghoul has gaunt before."
