Star Trek
Star Trek was originally broadcast in the US in 1966
Sci-fi series Star Trek is the show most people want to see returned to their TV screens, a survey has found.

Originally broadcast in the US in 1966, it topped a poll of more than 1,000 viewers commissioned by UK interactive TV firm Home Media Networks.

Fantasy action series Buffy the Vampire Slayer was second, followed by long-running sitcom Friends.

Star Trek's latest spin-off TV series, Enterprise, was axed in February following poor ratings.
