A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Borg travel back in time intended on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
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 one 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 a crew of approximately 430, the Enterprise battles aliens, megalomaniacal computers, time paradoxes, psychotic murderers, and even Khan! Written by

Sulu and Uhura didn't have first names in the series. Sulu did get a first name (Hikaru) in source books, but it was not spoken on screen until Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). In Season 2 DVD Special Features, Nichelle Nichols reveals that she and Gene Roddenberry accepted the first name "Nyota" for her character, which is a Swahili word meaning "Star". Uhura is a "girly" variant of "Uhuru", Swahili for "freedom". However, the 1968 book, "The Making of Star Trek" by Stephen J. Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry, gave her the first name of Penda. Trek fandom's insistence on ignoring this remains a mystery, as they cite this work on many other points. Nyota was finally spoken on screen in Star Trek (2009). See more »
There are numerous instances where the flimsy nature of the set can be seen when an actor/actress bumps into a wall and the wall bends with him/her. See more »
There's no such thing as the unknown- only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood.

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, "Whom Gods Destroy", a third-season episode, uses the second-season arrangement of the theme. As did all episodes produced after it. See more »
This has to be one of the greatest series in history. I really enjoy watching a lot of the episodes especially those from the second and third seasons when Chekov was on and the supporting cast really became complete. I especially loved the episodes that dealt with what happens when someone upsets the natural course that a planet goes on (eg. "A Piece of the Action"). In the case of those episodes, usually someone wants to help a planet achieve its destiny at a faster rate or leaves a form of literature or technology behind leading to disastrous results as was the case with the Ekosians who followed the Nazi model or the world that used the model of 1920's Chicago to base their societies on. This pretty much is a moral for any world including our own and how we should leave not only people follow their own path but let nature take it's own path.
