Overview

Fans of the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise will surely rejoice with this DVD release of the third and final season of Gene Roddenberry's original Star Trek series. This season represents the show just after it was saved from cancellation by a massive letter-writing campaign from thousands of fans across the globe. Once the show did return, its tight budgets brought what many fans now consider some the lowest-quality episodes in Star Trek's history. While episodes like the ridiculous farce "Spock's Brain, and the absurd space hippies seen in "The Way to Eden" do prove this season's sour reputation, there still were many standout entries. The classic "The Tholian Web" still stands up today as a great example of sci-fi-style storytelling, and who can resist the all-out Enterprise versus Klingons brawl in "Day of the Dove, or Kirk's (William Shatner) cheesy Romulan disguise in "The Enterprise Incident"? Also included in this set are two versions of the original Star Trek pilot episode, "The Cage, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike. Still captivating today, this strange early concept of what we know as Star Trek was originally rejected for being "too cerebral" for audiences of the late '60s. All of the set's 24 episodes, which are spread out on seven discs, feature unbelievable picture quality and superb new Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Sound audio mixes. The set's eighth disc contains many lovingly produced bonus features. Things kick off with the late Gene Roddenberry's vintage introduction to "The Cage, where he explains the episode's long history. A total overview of the season follows with "To Boldly Go...Season Three." "Life Beyond Trek: Walter Koenig" follows Koenig as he discusses his casting as the character Pavel Chekov and his life with Star Trek, and it shows off his collection of Chekov-related merchandise. "Chief Engineer's Log: James Doohan" profiles actor Doohan, who speaks of his career and favorite episodes of the series. "Memoir From Mr. Sulu" features actor George Takei reflecting on his time as the character Hikaro Sulu. The son of Star Trek's creator is interviewed in "Star Trek's Impact: Eugene Roddenberry's Memories," and a profile of the show's fandom is seen in "A Star Trek Collector's Dream Come True." Production art and a series of Easter eggs called "Red Shirt Files" round out this massive set. A fitting tribute to a genuine piece of television and pop-culture history, this Star Trek: Season Three DVD set is likely to be a treasured addition to any fan's collection.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
When ratings slipped during its second season, the original Star Trek was actually canceled by NBC, prompting a massive letter-writing campaign undertaken by the show's passionate fans. The network reversed itself and ordered another year's worth of episodes from producer Gene Roddenberry. Season 3 was a mixed bag, however, and NBC pulled the plug without opposition when ratings slipped further. The general consensus was that Roddenberry and his creative team had failed to maintain the level of quality that had distinguished the show's first two years, although in hindsight that criticism seems a little harsh. It's true that Season 3 -- in which episodes sported such flowery titles as "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" and "Is There in Truth No Beauty?" -- has a fair share of duds and more than a few mediocre episodes. Situations overlapped, and individual plots tended to bog down with tedious dialogue exchanges. But there are many excellent installments as well, including "The Paradise Syndrome," in which Captain Kirk William Shatner learns that in another life he has fathered a child; "That Which Survives," built around a female apparition whose periodic appearances onboard the Enterprise usually result in a crew member's death; "And the Children Shall Lead," a chilling story focused on a group of telepathically gifted children who presided over carnage on a remote colony; and "The Tholian Web," a suspenseful, well-written tale featuring some exceptionally sharp dialogue. Moreover, Star Trek episodes generally play better when viewed through the rosy glow of nostalgia; we tend to regard them as old friends and overlook their faults. Adding to this set’s allure is both versions of "The Cage": the original, unsold Trek series pilot and the two-part Season 1 episode built around it, aired as "The Menagerie."

    What is nice about the first issue is that the shows appear as they did when originally aired and include a preview for next week's show. The menu contains a still picture from the particular show so that helps identify the particular show. Please be advised that you CANNOT TRUST Tankerous Media. They offer this item, then don't deliver, then remove it from availability, and then offer it again. They perpetrate fraud and do a bait and switch. Buyer Beware!
