The 46th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series is honoured by an interactive Google doodle featuring characters from the iconic science fiction series.
Each of Google's letters is marked by a Star crew member with a storyline weaved into the doodle taking cues from the episode and the show. The letter 'G' in the Google logo is Spock, one if the most memorable character from the series. The first 'O' represents the character of Nyota Uhura and the second 'O' features Captain James T Kirk, the commanding officer of the USS Enterprise. The letter 'L' resembles Hikaru Sulu.
Googlers will have to make their way throughout the doodle to uncover the story. The doodle begins in the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. Clicking on the red door helps 'O' and 'E' go out to the transporter room. Clicking the main console in the room beams them to an unfriendly planet where they are challenged by an alien.
Users can click on the nearby tree to attack the alien and another object towards the top to completely defeat the extra terrestrial. On defeating the enemy they return to the Enterprise. The doodle ends with the USS starship Enterprise moving past the screen in space and the word Google appearing in yellow, written in pure Star Trek style. The iconic instrumental theme from Star Trek by Alexander Courage plays in the background.
Star Trek: The Original Series is the second television programme to be featured in a doodle. September 30, 2010 marked the first doodle from Google to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the popular animated series, The Flintstones.
