Star Trek: The Original Series Doodle
Google has doodled every topic and anniversary under the sun, yet, it’s never done a Star Trek Doodle – until today. The whimsical Google Doodle, which marks the iconic science fiction series’ 46th anniversary (actually a day ahead of the exact air date anniversary of the first episode “The Man Trap”), is chock-full of Star Trek-esque interaction.
Today’s Google doodle for Star Trek is interactive. You can move your mouse over the logo to see different sections of the Google Doodle light-up. Pick any of these in order to view the animation. See the video below to know more in details;
Google’s letters have been remade into Star Trek crew members and there’s a storyline inside the doodle, with many references to the episode and show. Like the letter ‘G’ is Mr Spock, first ‘O’ plays the character of Nyota Uhura and the second that of James T Kirk, the commanding officer of the USS Enterprise. The letter ‘L’ seems to resemble Hikaru Sulu.
Star Trek series called Star Trek The Quebec. And if you’re wondering why the Doodle is called “Star Trek: Original Series”, then since the release of Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG, 1987-1994), it was renamed Star Trek: The Original Series ( Star Trek TOS) not to confuse them.
