Trivia

During Star Trek's 2nd season, Leonard Nimoy performed the song "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" for his album "Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy". The song was the story of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures in J.R.R. Tolkien's novel "The Hobbit". Both Spock and Bilbo Baggins have pointy ears. See more »

Crazy Credits

Each season of this show has a different arrangement of the theme music over the closing credits, although not every episode uses the arrangement specific to its corresponding season. For example, "Whom Gods Destroy", a third-season episode, uses the second-season arrangement of the theme. As did all episodes produced after it. See more »

Innovative
23 March 2004 | by David-TripplerSee all my reviews

Wow, it´s really hard to comment a series like Star Trek TOS because there has been other Star Trek and films and so I think it impossible to comment this series fair but well... I´ll try!

I think that Star Trek TOS is a very good series with many new things nobody has ever seen until the series had started. But the most important thing for me is, that the series showed the people to accept others, other things and other opinions. And so it´s not really a problem that there are some very thin stories and episodes which aren´t realistic and logical (no intelligent Captain would beam onto an unknown planet together with his first officer, his chief of engineering (and second officer) and his medical officer. But hey, thats television and thats create suspense, it wouldn´t be so interesting if Captain Kirk would only beam onto planets with unknown security (nearly every episode some redskirted security officers die!) and science officers.

So for a series made in the late 60s, this was very very innovative!
