"Star Trek" premieres at 7:30 p.m. on WOAI Channel 4. The San Antonio Light describes the show as a "Twilight Zone-type science fiction series [that] aims at children and adults, with a weird opener about an alien body on a strange planet who assumes shapes of men or women in its quest for life-giving salt. The puzzling plot teeters on the absurd, but walkie-talkie devices, colored space food , laser beam guns, and the pointed ears of spaceman Spock (Leonard Nimoy) will appeal to the youngsters. The star of the series is normal-eared William Shatner, who plays a no-nonsense space ship captain."
