Happy 50th Anniversary Star Trek – The 13 Most Memorable Monsters

As a horror fan who grew up in the 70s, it is impossible for me to not have a soft spot in my heart for the original “Star Trek.” Not only did our crew explore new worlds to seek out new life and new civilizations and boldly go where no man has gone before, but once they did so, they’d usually come face-to-face with some snarling beast of the monstrous variety.

As a means to help celebrate this landmark television series’ 50th anniversary, we’ve put together a list of some of our absolute favorite beasties Captain Kirk and company encountered.

Raise your glass of Tranya, and check them out below. Woe is he who wore a red shirt!
