Enterprise, representing the United Federation of Planets (including Earth) on a five-year mission in outer space to explore new worlds, seek new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before. The Enterprise is commanded by handsome and brash Captain James Tiberius "Jim" Kirk (William Shatner). Kirk's two best friends are Commander Spock (Leonard Nimoy) (last name unpronounceable to humans) the ship's half-human/half-Vulcan Science Officer and First/Executive Officer (i.e. second-in-command) from the planet Vulcan, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley).

Trivia

When Nichelle Nichols was asked what her favorite episode was, she replied, "Any time Uhura got off the bridge." See more »

Goofs

Repeatedly throughout the series, it is stated that there are 430 personnel on board the Enterprise on any given mission. Due to the prohibitive cost of hiring multiple extras, the viewer rarely ever gets a sense that there are more than 15 or 20 people on board. See more »

Quotes

Scotty: When are ya gonna get off of that milk diet Laddy? Now Scotch is a real drink for a man.
Chekov: Scotch was invented by a little old lady from Leningrad.

Crazy Credits

Each season of this show has a different arrangement of the theme music over the closing credits, although not every episode uses the arrangement specific to its corresponding season. For example, Star Trek: The Original Series: Whom Gods Destroy (1969), a third-season episode, uses the second-season arrangement of the theme. As did all episodes produced after it. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Germany some episodes were cut or rearranged during the dubbing process (for example in the episode "Amok Time" the dialogue was changed to Spock having a disease). The episode "Patterns of Force" has never been shown on TV due to the Nazi-thematic. It was only released in the late 90s on VHS. See more »

The Greatest Show of all time.
25 March 2019 | by adamdustin6See all my reviews

Star Trek may look cheap, but its stories are anything but; filled with depth, rich ideas, and executed with a great sense of adventure. Memorable, iconic characters representing logic, emotion, and morality in a whirlwind of political strife. Star Trek's meanings are timeless and will forever live long, and prosper. A must watch before you die.
