When first starting his career in entertainment, Gene Roddenberry worked for the LAPD's Public Relations Department. (Among his first writing jobs was writing scripts for "Dragnet") At the LAPD, Roddenberry worked with a police officer named "Klingin". When developing Star Trek, Roddenberry used the name to create the villainous "Klingons". If you pay close attention to the early episodes in which the Klingons either appear or are mentioned, Kirk pronounces the name "Klingin". 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 »

Robert Lansing is the only guest star on this series to be billed at the top of the program - just after the episode's title - rather than in the end credits. After the words, "Assignment: Earth", came, "Guest Star Robert Lansing as Mister Seven." See more »
Crime And Punishment. War And Peace. A Canticle For Leibowitz. Like any great novel, Star Trek set the standard by which all others are measured. I first saw Star Trek as a child when Star Trek: The Next Generation was beginning to be made. Star Trek didn't have as nice special effects, both technologically and artistically. But something about it sticks with the viewer, and this is the characters. Captain James Kirk. First Office Spock. Doctor Leonard McCoy. Chekov. Sulu. Scotty. These are names that are indelibly etched into memory for me. The actors do a marvelous job of being the colours while the plot paints the distant future for us. Most of the first 9 Star Trek movies are equally superb. Star Trek...to boldly go where no man has gone before. It indeed did. Excellent, excellent serial!!
