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.

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.

Buyer Beware. You CANNOT TRUST Tankerous Media. They are liars and thieves. I doubt they even have this in stock.

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.
