This week in 1977: One of the most unusual shows I’ve presented takes place at the Waikiki Shell … “The World of Star Trek,” featuring the show’s creator Gene Roddenberry. The advertisement reads as follows: “See the award-winning Star Trek pilot film, never before shown in its entirety, and the only authentic showing of the famous blooper reel – both on a full theater-size screen. Hear from Gene Roddenberry about the making of the new Star Trek movie and ask Gene your own questions about Star Trek.” Tickets are $6.50 for reserved seats and $5 for general admission … And the Trekkies turned up … about 7,000 of ‘em … And the No. 1 record in Hawaii is Don’t Give Up On Us by David Soul
