Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Here are the 1966-67 episodes of the classic Star Trek in all their glory, introducing the USS Enterprise and its crew during their five-year mission to boldly go where no man has gone before. Captain James T. Kirk William Shatner, First Officer Spock Leonard Nimoy, ship's doctor "Bones" McCoy DeForest Kelley, and the rest of the crew are on hand, fending off hostile aliens, discovering new planets and cultures, and even grappling with important social issues in a science fiction context. Star Trek, under the able stewardship of producer Gene Roddenberry, guided TV science fiction away from the simplistic space opera formulas of Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, and their futuristic compatriots. The first-season episodes aren't devoid of action, suspense, and melodrama, but on the whole they're far more substantive than anything prime-time viewers had seen in a sci-fi show up to that time. The standouts from this group include "Where No Man Has Gone Before," "The Naked Time," "Shore Leave," "Dagger of the Mind," "Arena," "Mudd's Women," "The Menagerie" a two-parter that reworked the early unsold Trek pilot starring Jeffrey Hunter, and the award-winning "City on the Edge of Forever," written by genre great Harlan Ellison. Some of these episodes seem rather crude compared to what followed, but they are still remarkable for their day. There isn't a science fiction series produced since that doesn't owe a great deal to Star Trek, and that will be readily apparent from even a cursory reviewing of this superb box set, which includes all-new interviews with Shatner and Nimoy among the plethora of supplemental features. Also notable is the HD-DVD version of the first Star Trek season, which includes new, digitally enhanced special effects.

    Bravo from and Old Fan

    Archaic, simplistic, deeply flawed ¿ and absolutely perfect! Here it is, collected like a fine set of jewels in a case. How can something so precious and awe inspiring fit into something so small. This is Star Trek. This is the one and only Star Trek. This is the first of three seasons of television that changed American pop culture. The special effects were cutting edge and I remember anxiously awaiting each episode to see if I could catch a glimpse of the fabulous starship Enterprise, it¿s courageous crew and all those fabulous tools that made children and adults alike long to hold the future in their hands. There were phasers, communicators and tricorders along with all sorts of other ingenious devices. But those were just the trappings. I grew up during the run of the original series, loved each of the pieces of the show and glimpsed that there was something more. There was something else present in the mix that I couldn¿t appreciate fully at the time. Star Trek was more than special effects, strange worlds and exotic aliens. Star Trek was people. This first season introduces us to the characters whose names are now iconic. Kirk, the commanding officer whose paramount love is his ship, his command. Spock, the green-skinned alien who seems so alone and yet reflects the alienation felt by each viewer. McCoy, the cynical country doctor who derides the very modern conveniences that makes his mission possible. Scotty, the engineer who loves the starship possibly more than the Captain can. Each of the crew personifies some facet of humanity and this set gives us the chance to see it all again, anew and from the beginning. The episodes never looked better. The picture is crisp, clear and the colors are bold. My thanks to Gene Roddenberry who created something that eventually dwarfed all other television programs and took on a life all its own, pushed ever forward by the audience itself who felt so compelled by what they saw that they were unable to simply watch, they had to become part of it. I hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this classic series in all its glory.

    Perfect for Purists and Everyone Else

    Finally, finally, finally! Paramount has FINALLY done a good job with the original STAR TREK. You've got both the original versions, and the so-called "enhanced visuals" versions of the episodes, on the same discs, and in high-definition. These episodes, even without all the digital frippery, have never looked or sounded better. And there are a lot of fun extras, too. I'm a huge fan of the original series, and I'm immensely pleased with this definitive version of STAR TREKs first, and best, season. I'm anxiously awaiting the two other seasons, now.

    In the top 4 Sci-Fi Series ever

    This is one of my favorite shows ever. I first heard about it three years ago at a sci-fi convention. I was there dressed as Xena when i met these fantastic people who could not stop talking about Star Trek. So I gave it a chance. I fell in love with the show immediately. At first Sulu was my favorite character. So I bought a blue Star Trek jumpsuit. Eventually being the man I am, I fell in love with O'Hora, the beautiful president of the Enterforprizes. So i cut the outfit into a miniskirt, which I now where to all of the awesome conventions.
