History’s ‘Star Trek’ Special Premieres Tonight

In anticipation of tomorrow’s theater premiere of JJ Abram’s “Star Trek Into the Darkness,” History Channel is presenting a behind-the-scenes special, “Star Trek: Secrets of the Universe,” tonight at 9 p.m. CT.

The special, from the creators of “Star Trek Into the Darkness,” delves into “Star Trek” science — amazing new exoplanets, the physics of Warp drive, and the ideas behind how we might one day live in a Star Trek universe.

Before watching, you may want to brush up on some Star Trek trivia, compliments of History Channel.
