Trivia

This is the only "Star Trek" series not to feature regulars from any other. However, Diana Muldaur who appeared in Star Trek: Return to Tomorrow (1968) and Star Trek: Is There in Truth No Beauty? (1968) later played the character of Dr. Katharine Pulaski during Season Two of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). Although she appeared in almost every episode of the season, she was never considered a regular. See more »

Goofs

Spock (Leonard Nimoy) holds the rank of Commander based on the rank stripes on his uniform (two solid gold bands), however there are several times throughout the series where he is referred to as Lieutenant Commander. However a Lieutenant Commander's rank stripes consist of one solid gold band and one dashed/segmented band. 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.
