Star Trek and The Business of Network Television

Question:
To what extent did the business model of network television enable Star Trek: The Original Series to appeal to such a wide range of audiences? In ways did that same model constrain it?

Star Trek: The Original Series had a big appeal to people, because all type of people could
recognize them self in the characters playing in the serie.

– Kirk was daring, bold, emotional, and heroic
– Spock brought rational thought, a level head, and logical thinking to the table
– Bones was practical and compassionate.

Star Trek was being watched by viewers from young to old
