A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
A diplomat is nearly assassinated. In order to save him, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his blood stream with a small crew. Problems arise almost as soon as they enter the bloodstream.
The adventures of the USS Enterprise, representing the United Federation of Planets on a five-year mission in outer space to explore new worlds, seek new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone before. The Enterprise is commanded by handsome and brash Captain James T. Kirk. His First Officer and best friend is Mr. Spock from the planet Vulcan, and Kirk's Medical Officer is Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy. With its crew of approximately 430, the Enterprise battles aliens, megalomanical computers, time paradoxes, psychotic murderers, and even Genghis Khan! Written by

The images displayed during the end credits of the show tended to follow a specific format. The first image was either an external shot of the Enterprise in space or in orbit of a planet (Seasons 1 and 2) or a shot of the Melkotian head from Star Trek: Spectre of the Gun (1968) (Season 3). The second image was often a specific scene from that particular episode aired, while the rest of the images up until the final one were various images from random episodes. And finally the final image at the end of the credits would be either a shot of Vena as an Orion slave girl (from Star Trek: The Cage (1986)) during Season 1, a shot of the false image of Balok (from Star Trek: The Corbomite Maneuver (1966)) during Season 2, and a simple space shot for Season 3. Also worth mentioning is that the Opening and Closing credits text for Seasons 1 and 2 were yellow, while the text for Season 3 was light blue. See more »
Numerous instances where Kirk orders phasers fired, but the animation is that of the photon torpedoes. See more »
On Earth, we have a saying: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
I know this saying. It was invented in Russia.

On some episodes, the closing credits show a still that is actually from the Star Trek blooper reel. It is a close-up of the actor who played the android body in "Return to Tomorrow, removing his latex make up. In the reel, He is shown taking it off, while an off-screen voice says "You wanted show business, you got it!" See more »
This show changed the way we looked at science fiction forever. Before there was The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and the prequel Enterprise. There was Captain James T. Kirk and crew on the Starship Enterprise. Exploring new worlds and new life. Traveling through time and space. Leonard Nimoy is great has Mr. Spock, the half human/half alien science officer and second in command. Deforest Kelly is also great Has Dr. Leonard Bones Mccoy, our favorite whiney Doctor, who came out with favorite sayings like "He's dead Jim" and "I'm a Doctor not a brick layer". The special effects may have seemed hoaky at times. But the show was still great in it's day. Gene Roddenberry was a genuis when he created this show. The show was well acted by everyone . So Star Trek fans live long and prosper.
