Description

Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. Phasers, transporters, and warp drive. Yes, it all began here: the pioneer of modern, continuing-character science fiction on TV, and the first chapter in Gene Roddenberry's visionary allegory that showed the best of humanity alive and well, projected into the 23rd century with compassion, boldness, and a curiosity to meet the unknown. Along the way an entirely new audience hungry for optimism in a troubled time found inspiration — along with humor, romance, and thought-provoking technology.

Debuting on September 8, 1966, Star Trek rolled out the first season's 29 episodes and quickly proved it wasn't just another one of the sci-fi shows currently in vogue. In these untouched, original versions of the first season's episodes, you can watch the evolution of Spock's "Vulcanian" coolness, the Spock-McCoy debates, the Vulcan neck pinch and mind meld, Starfleet and the Federation, Scotty's marvels, Sulu's hobbies, and Uhura's singing along with the debut of the Romulans, the Klingons, the Prime Directive of non-interference, and Khan Noonien Singh.
