Don't Smoke, "Live Long and Prosper", Great American Smoke-Out Poster

About the Great American Smoke-Out

In 1974, Lynn R. Smith, editor of the Monticello Times in Minnesota, spearheaded the state's first D-Day, or Don't Smoke Day. The idea caught on, and on Nov. 18, 1976, the California Division of the American Cancer Society (ACS) succeeded in getting nearly 1 million smokers to quit for the day.  The first national Great American Smokeout was held in 1977.

About Star Trek

STAR TREK began in 1966 as a science fiction television show created by Gene Roddenberry. More than thirty years, four television series, and eight theatrical releases later, STAR TREK is as alive and strong as ever. Although STAR TREK's primary mission has always been to entertain, in the process it has become a phenomenon in and of itself. The combination of STAR TREK and its loyal fans are much more than the sum of the parts; together, they represent a distinctive element in popular culture.

In addition to being terrific entertainment, STAR TREK may attribute its longevity and popularity to its optimistic vision of a future in which humankind not only prospers, but has also fostered a world of peace and equality for all -- certainly a desirable and uplifting outlook.

Achievement of the vision presented in STAR TREK may at times seem unattainable to those of us locked into this century, but as more than one STAR TREK captain has said, "There are always possibilities." Perhaps it is hope for those possibilities that reinforces the appeal of STAR TREK.  The original series has been spun off into four other television series, and a total of ten feature films!
