1. The Star Trek Legend
The Star Trek franchise began in 1966 as a television series, now referred to as Star Trek: The Original Series. Since then, the show has ignited five spin-off shows over the years. The Star Trek legend is clearly never-ending as it doesn’t look to be coming to a halt anytime soon. The franchise’s first outer space sci-fi film hit theaters in 1979, and spawned 10 additional flicks since then—including the 2009 edition. Now, the legend is back again with a star studded cast including Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine.
