Today In STAR TREK History: June 27th

That's not your seat!
Welcome to our round-up of the Star Trek episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. All viewing figures quoted are for U.S. premiere.

June 27th
On this day in 1966, Jeffrey Jacob Abrams, better known simply as J.J. Abrams, was born. In an astoundingly successful career, Abrams has wrote and produced such films as Regarding Henry, Forever Young, Armageddon, Cloverfield, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He's also created numerous television series, including Felicity, Alias, Fringe, and Lost, winning two Emmy Awards for the latter – Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Drama Series.

Behind the camera, Abrams directorial film work includes Mission: Impossible III and Super 8, and of course he both directed and produced Star Trek, the eleventh film in the Trek franchise released on 8 May 2009, and its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, which had its world premiere on 23 April 2013. On the next sequel, Star Trek Beyond, Abrams remained as producer.

Whatever you think of the direction Abrams took Trek in, it was finacially and largely critically successful. In 2010, the Producers Guild of America nominated Abrams and Damon Lindelof for the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures for Star Trek. In addition, Abrams won Best Director at the 2009 Spike Scream Awards, and was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Director for his work on Star Trek.

Happy birthday to you!
