NASA and Star Trek have been connected, directly and indirectly, since Star Trek: The Original Series premiered in September 1966. While the TV show featured large ships voyaging to stars far away on five year missions, NASA was only beginning stretch humanity's presence beyond Earth. When Star Trek premiered on Sept. 8, 1966, astronauts Pete Conrad and Richard Gordon were four days from launch aboard Gemini XI, a three-day mission that would reach an altitude of less than 200 miles.
