A 1960's sci-fi action adventure series set in the 23rd century based around the crew of the USS Enterprise, representing the United Federation of Planets (including earth) on a five-year mission in outer space to explore new worlds, seek new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before. The Enterprise is commanded by handsome and brash Captain James Tiberius "Jim" Kirk. Kirk's two best friends are Commander Spock (last name unpronounceable to humans) the ship's half-human/half-Vulcan Science Officer and First/Executive Officer (i.e. second-in-command) from the planet Vulcan, and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Leonard H.

They along with a crew of approximately 430, including helmsman Lieutenant Hikaru Kato Sulu, navigator Ensign Pavel Andreievich Chekov, communications Officer Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, and chief engineer Lieutenant Commander Christopher Jorgensen "Scotty" Scott -- confront strange alien races, friendly and hostile alike, as they ...Written by

One of the writers, D.C. Fontana, was told to use the initials "D.C." by Gene Roddenberry because networks at the time generally wouldn't hire women writers. Her first name is Dorothy. See more »
Throughout the series, stars sweep past the Enterprise as the ship hurtles through space. While a visually pleasing way to show the ship is in motion, the speeds involved (especially "warp 1," or light speed) would not result in any such effect for the reason that stars, being so far apart, would necessarily be too far from the Enterprise to show any relative movement. In fact, they would appear to be as still as they look to Earth-bound stargazers. See more »
A madman got us into this, and it's beginning to look like only a madman can get us out.

In the latter part of the first season, the credit, in all-uppercase, for "SCRIPT SUPERVISOR", has the first word misspelled "SCPIPT". See more »
In Germany some episodes were cut or rearranged during the dubbing process (for example in the episode "Amok Time" the dialogue was changed to Spock having a disease). The episode "Patterns of Force" has never been shown on TV due to the Nazi-thematic. It was only released in the late 90s on VHS. See more »
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.
