Trivia

According to George Takei, William Shatner had Takei's lines and camera time cut due to Shatner's ego. Shatner denied this and their relationship was contentious ever since. According to episode writer Norman Spinrad, Shatner had it in his contract that he would have more lines than anyone and had some of the other actors' lines cut. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Dr. McCoy: "He's dead, Jim."

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 »

THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL.
9 June 2002 | by (Metairie, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

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.
