Leslie Nielsen starred in one of the greatest classic science-fiction movies of all time, Forbidden Planet, in 1956 — he was thirty years old. Forbidden Planet was the first color science-fiction box office hit from the fifties. It combined technological paranoia, supercomputers, advanced technologies, an alien world, Altair IV, and an alien race, the Krell, with optimism about space flight becoming ubiquitous in the future of Mankind. Commander J.J. Adams (Leslie Nielsen) became the prototype for Captain Kirk, and the film set the tone later applied in the Star Trek TV series — the United Planets Cruiser C57D in Forbidden Planet was reflected in the United Federation of Planets starship Enterprise NCC-1701 in Star Trek. Forbidden Planet also had a doctor named Lt. Dominic “Doc” Ostrow MD (Warren Stevens) very similar to Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy in Star Trek.
