The most famous episode in franchise history, "The Trouble with Tribbles," is one of the highlights of the second season of StarTrek: The OriginalSeries. A deserved classic, the humourous story centers on an ever-expanding mass of furry creatures that memorably rain themselves down on top of Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and into the middle of a Federation-Klingon showdown. It inspired one of the most memorable episodes in the spin-off series Deep Space Nine, "Trial and Tribble-ations." Also in the second season, the Vulcan culture of Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is fleshed out in "Amok Time" (in which Spock is faced with the possibility of killing his captain and friend) and "Journey to Babel" (introducing Spock's father, played by Mark Sarek, in what would turn out to be a long-recurring role). A new character, navigator Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig), was introduced; his Monkees haircut was intended to appeal to the younger audience, but he was also a Russian, which at the height of the cold war reflected Gene Roddenberry's optimistic vision of a more enlightened future. Other social-commentary opportunities presented themselves in "The Omega Glory," "The Doomsday Machine," and "Assignment: Earth," the last also one of those periodic opportunities to scrimp on the budget by time-traveling to an earlier version of Earth. Another example was "A Piece of the Action," a comic episode set in the Roaring Twenties and memorable for, among other things, Kirk's teaching a made-up card game called Fizzbin. In other significant episodes, "I, Mudd" saw the return of the bounder from season 1, "The Changeling" was the original inspiration for the first Trek feature film a decade later, "Wolf in the Fold" (penned by the author of Psycho) provides an example of the series' great writing, and "Mirror, Mirror" introduced the concept of the parallel universe inhabited by vicious, amoral counterparts of the regular crew, another theme later borrowed (more than once, and to good emotional effect) by DS9. --David Horiuchi

Saved from the brink of cancellation by its loyal fanbase, StarTrek's third and final season rewarded them with a number of memorable episodes. Tight budgets and slipping creative control, however, made it the most uneven, though it did have some of the coolest episode titles ("For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky", "Is There in Truth No Beauty", "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"). Some of the best moments involved a gunfight at the OK Corral ("Spectre of the Gun"), a knock-down drag-out sword battle with the Klingons aboard the Enterprise ("Day of the Dove"), the ship getting caught in an ever-tightening spacial net ("The Tholian Web"), TV's first interracial kiss ("Plato's Stepchildren"), Sulu taking command ("The Savage Curtain"), and Kirk's switching bodies with an ex-love interest ("Turnabout Intruder"). Also appearing in the set as a coda are two versions of the series pilot, "The Cage", a restored color version and the original, never-aired version that alternates between color and black and white. Starring Jeffery Hunter as Captain Pike, Leonard Nimoy as a relatively emotional Spock, and Majel Barrett (the future Nurse Chapel and Mrs. Gene Roddenberry) as a frosty Number One, this pilot was rejected, but a second was commissioned, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", now considered the "official" beginning of the series. But "The Cage" is very recognizably StarTrek with its far-out concepts (telepathic aliens collecting species samples), sexy humanoid women, character development, and of course cheesy costumes and special effects. Footage was later reused in the season 1 two-parter, "The Menagerie". The best of the 63 minutes of bonus material focuses on three of the actors: Walter Koenig, George Takei, and James Doohan. Koenig discusses how he was cast and shows off his various collections, one consisting of Chekov figurines. Takei speaks movingly about the Japanese American internment and, in what is probably his last StarTrek appearance, Doohan, slowed by Alzheimer's but still with a twinkle in his eye, recalls his voiceover roles and his favorite episodes. The Easter eggs are amusingly called "Red Shirt Files" in tribute to those poor saps who everyone knew were only in the landing party so they could die. --David Horiuchi

The high definition upgrades for the originalseries of StarTrek have been superb pieces of work thus far, and a real labour of love. Season three continues to the very high standard, as the original crew of the USS Enterprise end their original television adventures. Benefiting from a top-to-bottom remastering, and bolstering by some genuinely interesting extra features, StarTrek here looks better than a television show of its vintage has any right to. Once again, you have the option between seeing the shows as they were originally broadcast, or with enhanced special effects put into the mix. And the real treat of this release is that you get a previously un-aired version of StarTreks pilot, which has never been made available before. The show itself remains the highlight, of course, and you get all 24 episodes of StarTrek: The OriginalSeries final season here. Its arguably the weakest of its three season run, but theres still an awful lot to enjoy, and many ideas that were simply ahead of their time. Its also, in the form of this Blu-ray set, been brought together with such care thats its surely the ultimate version of the season to own. Can we get remastered Next Generation next, please? --Jon Foster

Many fans don't rate the second series of Space: 1999 as highly as the first. Responding to audience feedback, as well as the separation of producers Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, the programme makers drafted in new producer Fred Freiberger, the man responsible for the third and weakest season of the originalStarTrek. Under his guidance the storylines drifted away from the hard sci-fi of the first season in favour of more action and a faster pace. The theme music, sets and costumes all changed, as did some key personnel. Out went professorial (and very dull) Barry Morse, in came dashing Tony Anholt as security officer Tony Verdeschi, while the glamour quotient was upped considerably by Catherine Schell as the shape-shifting Maya (a much-needed change, since the frosty Barbara Bain had reduced the show's sex appeal to nil in Series 1). Series 2 also introduced lots and lots more aliens kitted out in badly fitting costumes and dodgy glam-rock era makeup. Responding to yet more feedback from American TV executives the protagonists now had to encounter more highly unconvincing monsters than even Dr Who ever dared imagine: "The Beta Cloud", for example, is a classic rampaging-bloke-in-a-suit scenario. That said, this second season has more emphasis on characters other than the headline stars, as various stranded Alphans are allowed to come to the fore instead of just blankly following Commander Koenig's orders. It's all good fun in a silly, nostalgic sort of way, and fans of the more vintage Season 1 will find it hard to resist this second season as well.On the DVD: There aren't many extras here, although sundry interviews with principal cast and crew are scattered across the six discs in this complete box set. There's also a commentary on some episodes with special effects man Brian Johnson, a couple of deleted scenes, production stills and some text features. Each disc has a small booklet that gives some useful background information on the episodes. The remastered 4:3 ratio picture and mono sound are fine. --Mark Walker

Advantages: Everything... amazing film Disadvantages: Nothing
...it recently is Sainsbury?s for only £3. I haven?t seen any other Star Trek films although my mum?s ex-boyfriend used to watch the TV shows all the time so I did know the characters beforehand.
On the front of the DVD box, there is a quote that claims this is the best action film of the year (2009 obviously). As earlier stated, J. J. Abrams is the director of this film and due to some of his other...

Review of StarTrek (DVD)
Advantages: If your a Original Star Trek Fan you'll just want this Disadvantages: Expensive
...I have been a Star Trek fan since they showed the show on the BBC in the 70's. Crikes I even remember being taken by my dad to see ST:TMP at the local ABC cinema (I even remember my kid sister snoring as she fell asleep!).
But I digress!
Having bought the original series on video in the grand old days of "lets run to WH Smiths every fortnight and fork over £9.99 for the next two episodes" if...
Advantages: Great Action, Special effects, Simple plot, some good performances some and nice back-references. Disadvantages: Romulan's are poorly presented, Kirk portrayal a bit over the top.
...on the popularity see's a different twist on things, in the shape of a new cast with a modern high octane feel to it. Here are my thoughts on the 2009 Star Trek DVD release, the 11th Star Trek film.
For God's Sake Jim, I'm a Dwarfer not a Trekkie!
Although I am a big fan of Sci-Fi, Star Trek was one of the shows that, despite it's huge following, I found a little too overblown and serious. Especially...
