Trivia

Notable for being the first scripted American TV show to display a kiss between black and white races, William Shatner (Kirk) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), in Star Trek: Plato's Stepchildren (1968) broadcast 22 November 1968 to considerable controversy. Though the series was well known for its social commentary, Nichols later claimed that more letters were received about that kiss than anything else during the show's run. See more »

A Truly Wonderful Series
6 May 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

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.
