The 60th annual Emmy Awards are held on September 21st and part of the show will include ‘TV’s most memorable moments’ from both drama and comedy. The clips that will be included in the final show are based on Internet voting which just opened up and a classic scene from Star Trek is on the list.
"He knows, Doctor"
"City on the Edge of Forever" is widely considered the best Star Trek episode and the ultimate scene is when Kirk is forced to make the choice between preserving the timeline or saving the woman he loves. This is one of the 20 scenes from different shows you can vote on for most memorable moment in the drama category at the ABC website. A second round of voting will start on September 9th with the final clips being shown in the ABC broadcast on Sunday Sept. 21st.
Get out the vote!
Star Trek has some serious competition with classic scenes from The Fugitive, The Waltons, The Sopranos and more. There are a number of genre choices to contend with including scenes from The Twilight Zone, X-Files, Buffy, and Lost.
So get out there and VOTE FOR TREK.
TrekMovie will do an update if Trek makes it into the second round of voting and you will have to watch on September 21st watch to see if Trek made onto the show. This year a number of Trek alumni (past and present) are up for awards, including William Shatner (see previous TrekMovie article for more).
