7. Kirk vs. The Gorn

TV Episode: 'Arena'

The famous 1967 episode with the fight scene where Kirk and a Gorn go at it was later re-mastered in 2006 to make it more realistic for fans to see a more lively Gorn. In the "Star Trek" video games, fans can tackle Gorns themselves.



6. Kirk's Death

Movie: 'Star Trek: Generations' 

The legendary captain died more than one death, but the first one was by far the most epic.

5. Tribbles!

TV Episode: 'The Trouble with Tribbles'

The small, soft, gentle creatures originally appeared in 1967. That's when the phrase, "multiplying like Tribbles" originated.



4. Picard as Borg

TV: 'The Best of Both Worlds: Part I'

In the third season finale Jean Luc Picard becomes a Borg and stays that way for a while after.



3. Kirk and Spock Battle

TV Episode: 'Amok" Time

The second season premiere episode in 1967 of the cult classic brought everyone's favorite two heroes to blows. 



2. Kirk and Uhura Kiss

TV Episode: 'Plato's Step Children'

The lip-lock between Lt. Uhura and Kirk in 1968 was long thought of as the first bi-racial television kiss on TV.



1. Khaaaaaaaaaan!

Movie: 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan'

Ultimate fans think this emotional scene in the 1982 movie is the #1 best moment in all of "Star Trek." William Shatner, as Kirk, gives off a chilling scream that only the legendary actor could pull off.
