45 years ago today, STAR TREK "The Old Show," premiered on NBC in color. The first episode aired was "The Man Trap," which was about a salt vampire and a lost love of McCoy's. It was not the first one filmed, but the network thought it was a strong pick since it since it had a monster in it.

The music is by John Williams. It's the score from, of all things, his soundtrack for the NIXON motion picture.
