    For me will always be this:
    "Gene Roddenberry's vision"
    I want to live in that world ever since I was a kid. Then "Cool alien races" like GORN!!! And Orion females!!!! WOW!!! I just don't like or admire the slave aspect to it.

    1. The excitement of exploration. I could take a decent raygun water pistol and a tape recorder as tricorder and go off on my own Treks.

    2. The Kirk roll.

    3. The Vulcan nerve pinch

    4. How Bones becomes more "Southern" as he gets older (both in "The Deadly Years", and in the actual films where he's older!).

    5. Scotty drinking the alien under the table in "By Any Other Name".

    6. "Mirror, Mirror", the alpha and omega of "evil counterpart" stories

    7. The "gunfight" in "Specter of the Gun"

    8. The fight music in "Amok Time"

    9. Spock's fling with Zarabeth.

    10. "Let's get the hell out of here."

    I'm gonna add the theme music and title/credits sequences… as a kid those had a disturbing and mysterious impact on me, and I think served as a strong hook into the show for many.

    My only prob with the first interracial kiss was it was clearly forced bordering on rape and both Kirk and Uhura were not enjoying it at all.

    No particular order

    Music
    Uhura and Marlena's uniforms(They got away with showing their belly buttons even though it wasn't allowed on television back then)
    Galileo Seven
    "Space, the final frontier"
    Tribbles
    Live Long and Prosper
    Pon Farr
    Energize
    Tackling social issues disguised as science fiction
    I'm a Doctor, not a ......

    I could list 1000 more reasons
