Trivia

The life-support belts came about simply because the bulky spacesuits created for Star Trek (1966) were too complex to draw. (In the original series, the concept of the transporter had come about the same way: it got the crew to the planet without the expense of filming a landing sequence every week.) Ironically, the belts were never adapted for the later live-action movies and television series because making the actors "glow" via special effects would have cost more than making spacesuits.

Goofs

Director Hal Sutherland was color blind and could not tell the difference between light gray and pink. In some episodes, uniforms and spacecraft which were supposed to be light gray are colored pink. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent show; brief run
3 January 2002 | by wperkinsSee all my reviews

Despite being only a half hour in length, this show was consistently good. Several of the plots were just as intricate as the original series; a few of them revisited old locations (the "Shore Leave" planet; the "Guardian of Forever") and characters (Harry Mudd) from the original series. The show was easily head and shoulders above the rest of the Saturday morning lineup.

The only real problem I had with the series is that so few of them were made (just 22); NBC simply ran the same episodes again and again. It turns out that the reason was the show's audience--children, mostly preteens, who were willing to watch the same episodes repeatedly.

All in all, it was exciting to see a new Star Trek series just four years after the original was cancelled. After this, it would be six years before the somewhat lackluster Star Trek: The Motion Picture and over a decade before the next series. Consider this a fitting coda for fans of the original series.
