Today In STAR TREK History: June 7th

Dammit Jim, it's my birthday.
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 broadcast (unless noted).

June 7th
Karl-Heinz Urban was born on this day in 1972. The New Zealander began his career with appearances in New Zealand films, like The Price of Milk, and TV series such as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and its spin-off Xena: Warrior Princess, with his first Hollywood role coming in the 2002 horror film Ghost Ship. Since then, he has appeared in many high-profile movies, including the second and third installments of The Lord of the Rings trilogy in the role of Éomer.

Of course, Karl Urban also played Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, a role originated by DeForest Kelley in the original Star Trek TV series, in the J.J. Abrams 2009 reboot Star Trek film, and its sequels Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. A fan of the Star Trek franchise since childhood, Urban actively pursued a role in the film, and his performance was widely embraced for its faithfulness to the spirit of Kelley's McCoy.

You also may have also seen Urban as Vaako in the Riddick film series, Judge Dredd in Dredd, and Skurge in Thor: Ragnarok. On the small screen he starred in the 2013 sci-fi series Almost Human, and since 2019 has played Billy Butcher in The Boys.

Happy birthday to you.

Join us again next time for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the movie's released, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Star Trek history.
