A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
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.
Captain Picard and his crew pursue the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. They also make sure that Zefram Cochrane makes his famous maiden flight at 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 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 Genghis Khan! Written by

Of the five Star Trek series, this is the only one to not feature an appearance by or reference to Ferengi, The Borg, Cardassians, Bajorans, Betazoids, Bolians, Yridians, Trill, Benzites, The Breen, El-Aurians, or Nausicaans. (Though the "Q" are not mentioned by name, Trelane from Star Trek: The Squire of Gothos (1967) is retroactively considered to be a Q.) See more »
Numerous instances where Kirk orders phasers fired, but the animation is that of the photon torpedoes. See more »
Here I am, thirty and something years later, watching again this classical cult TV series, now on DVD. In the 70's, I felt in love for "Star Trek" in network television, becoming a great fan of this series. Later, with VHS and cable TV, I taped all the episodes. Along the last years, I bought some episodes on DVD, released in USA. And now, I have just bought the three seasons on Brazilian DVD.
I have just finished watching the First Season, and I was amazingly excited watching again (how many times? I can not even guess ) the journeys of the USS Enterprise, commanded by her powerful Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner, a horrible actor that shines in this role) and his number one, the bright Lt. Commander Spock (Leonard Nimoy). Together with the sentimental Lt. Cmdr. Leonard H. 'Bones' McCoy, M.D (DeForest Kelley), the command of the starship has strength, brain and feelings, as if they were a perfect man. They boldly go with the millions of worldwide viewers where no man has gone before.
The First Season on DVD has eight DVDs, with twenty nine episodes and the following Extra: "The Birth of a Timeless Legacy" ("O Nascimento de um Legado Histórico"); "Life Beyond Trek: William Shatner" ("A Vida Depois de Jornada: William Shatner"); "To Boldly Go Season One" ("Audaciosamente Indo Ano Um"); "Kiss 'n' Tell: Romance in the 23rd Century" ("Beijar e Falar: O Amor no Século 23"). My favorite episode of this season is "The Menagerie Parts I and II", with the eternal Captain Christopher Pike. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): "Jornada nas Estrelas" ("Star Trek")
