Star Trek is science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry. Star Trek aired on NBC from September 8, 1966 to June 3, 1969. The show follows the crew of the starship USS Enterprise as they explore space and go "where no man has gone before". The show takes place in the 23rd century in the Milky Way Galaxy. The original show lasted three seasons and spawned many other television series, movies, and books.
Leonard H. McCoy, also known as “Bones”, is chief medical officer of the USS Enterprise. DeForest Kelley portrayed McCoy in the original Star Trek series. McCoy is known for his devotion to the health of the crew as well as his argumentative temperament and is often depicted arguing with the logical and emotionally detached Spock. McCoy was said to play the role of Captain Kirk's conscience which offered a counterpoint to Spock's logic.
