Video: Unseen STAR TREK Photos

The late Toronto Star photographer Reg Innell just happened to be on vacation in Los Angeles in July 1966. He liked to peruse the used bookstores there. He was a world traveler, and his tastes ran toward the film, ballet, and the ballet. He didn't watch much television. When he

stepped into a Los Angeles studio 53 years ago to photograph a bunch of unknown Canadians on a TV set, he likely didn’t think much of the assignment he was doing on a lark.

-- from ‘The Man Trap’ was the first Star Trek episode to air — but the Star was there first

Recently, these 53 year old photos from a couple of TV shows resurfaced. And a couple of those unknown Canadians were William Shatner and James Doohan. Innell was there as they shot their sixth episode of the first season. These 35mm slides were mostly unseen, filed away in the Toronto Star archives.
