Top o’ the Lot: Star Trek Pets

The thing about Star Trek; the good thing about any sci-fi; is it’s all Star_Trek_TOS_logo.svgabout people, and seeing a bit of ourselves in those people. This can be seen, of course, in the characters and the stories being told, but Star Trek always threw in little bits of the real-world into the mix to reinforce the humanity of it all. Paper books, vineyards, and so many other little things filled the screen next to phasers, warp drive, and *snicker* gravity plating, but there’s nothing more human than having a pet, and Trek has had its fair share of non-human…er, non-sentient species filling starships.
