Google doodle to celebrate Star Trek’s anniversary

Google, on Saturday, displayed an attractive and innovative doodle to mark the 46th anniversary of ‘Star Trek: The Original Series’.

Star Trek is an American science fiction TV series and holds the distinction of being one of the earliest science-fiction TV series depicting the 23rd century.

The plot of this science-fiction series revolves around the adventures of the starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) and its crew.

The series was endorsed by different production firms and National Broadcasting Company ( NBC) aired it from September 8, 1966 – June 3, 1969.

Because of its intriguing episodes and plot Star Trek was nominated for Emmy awards.

So, to commemorate the 46th anniversary of Star Trek, Google has dedicated an animated doodle. Each letter of the Google logo is featured as a character from the science fiction series.

The letter ‘G’ in the logo depicts the character Spock, one of the most celebrated characters of the series. The first and second ‘O’ of the logo are symbolised by characters Nyota Uhura and Captain James T Kirk respectively. And the letter ‘L’ represents Hikaru Sulu.

The 46th anniversary Star Trek doodle opens in the bridge of the Starship Enterprise that allows users to click on the letters ‘O’ and ‘E’. Moreover, the clickable red door serves as the passage to the transporter room from where the characters are transported to a strange and unknown planet.

On that planet the characters are challenged by an unfriendly and odd looking creature that they easily defeat by shooting with a weapon. After defeating, the letter ‘E’ returns to the starship.

The series of events in this doodle has been made even more intriguing with addition of the show’s theme tune in the background.
