“Space, the final frontier.” You still hear those words reverberating in William Shatner’s voice whenever you see the words “Star Trek” in front of you. The Star Trek franchise has generated $10 billion over the years in revenue. It is not only one of the largest grossing media franchises in history but it is also an entire world of its own. The Star Trek fan world includes its very own fully constructed language called Klingon, an amusement park, books, museum exhibits, novels, games, 4 television series, 2 prequel television series, and 13 feature films, an animated series, comics toys and of course – the Star Trek conventions. This cult phenomenon has been going strong for 51 years and shows no signs of slowing down. Many Star Trek characters were trailblazers on and off screen. Whether you turn on an episode from 1966 or even a recently released episode from 2017 there is no doubt that you will get engrossed in the plot and fall in love with the characters. That’s why we just had to know who these impressive and good looking characters of the show were dating in real life. And most importantly, are any of the cast members dating each other?
