Largely reflecting their on-screen roles as Kirk and Spock, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy came to be close friends in real-life. However, some of the other cast members, notably James Doohan and George Takei, have said they found it difficult to work and deal with William Shatner, resulting in their dislike of him on a personal level as well.

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 »
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 »
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!
