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 Khan! Written by

George Takei claimed in 2014 that his homosexuality was a guarded secret amongst the cast. Nevertheless he privately pitched to Gene Roddenberry a story idea in which homosexuality would be allegorically depicted by an alien race the crew encounters. Takei claimed that Roddenberry liked the idea, but reluctantly decided it would be too controversial. See more »
In several episodes, the positions of people being beamed up/down change. For example, in Star Trek: Mirror, Mirror when the landing party is being beamed up, Kirk's arm is positioned down, then up as he starts to materialize the first time, then down again as he finally materializes. See more »

Robert Lansing is the only guest star on this series to be billed at the top of the program - just after the episode's title - rather than in the end credits. After the words, "Assignment: Earth", came, "Guest Star Robert Lansing as Mister Seven." See more »
Despite the popularity of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, the original series is still by far my favorite. None of the others had the appeal of the characters like the overconfident Kirk, totally unemotional Spock, and the sarcastic McCoy. Yes, the special effects and production values are cheesy by today's standards, but I love bad effects! Every planet they beamed down to, it was so obvious which were natural earth settings (which always seemed to be around L.A. in the Vasquez Rocks area) and foam rubber plastic sets. My favorite episodes were: The Menagerie, which used footage from The Cage (check out those backgrounds, which are obviously matte paintings), The City on the Edge Forever (with Joan Collins as a depression era social worker), The Enemy Within, featuring a dual Captain Kirk, The Alternative Factor, (an incredibly bad, but interesting episode that had a man's spaceship that looked like it was made out of plastic and took just a few minutes to build), All Our Yesterdays, the only episode I know of that never showed the ship's bridge and was about the crew time traveling on a planet about to explode, and of course my very favorite, The Trouble With Tribbles.
