STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SEASON 1
PARAMOUNT HOME ENTERTAINMENT
DVD RETAIL RELEASE 30TH AUGUST 2004

“Space...The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no man has gone before…”

For the first time ever, Star Trek: The Original Series is boldly going where no Complete Season has gone before – DVD. Presented in innovative collectors packaging, and now enjoying a cult status all over the world, Star Trek: The Original Series, Season 1 DVD contains over 20 hours of episodes, featurettes and exclusive interviews. The superb extra footage includes newly created interviews with the cast and executive producers, ‘A day in the life of…’ diaries and fascinating stories from the actors as they recall on-set events and how the series was initially made; all created exclusively for Star Trek: The Original Series, Season 1 DVD.

First aired in America in 1966, Star Trek was groundbreaking in its use of special effects and plot lines. Following the exploits of Captain James T. Kirk, played by the eponymous WILLIAM SHATNER and his crew of around 430 on board the Starship Enterprise, they battled aliens, megalomaniacal computers, time paradoxes, psychotic murderers and even Genghis Khan! However, contrary to popular belief, Captain Kirk never uttered the line “Beam me up, Scotty”. The series gripped a nation offering everything for the science fiction enthusiast and cult follower alike and has since spawned the largest number of spin-off

productions, including ten feature film movies and the numerous TV series, as well as adding new phrases into the language.

“To boldly go where no man has gone before” was the captain’s mantra and each episode does just that. Delivering an array of fantastic creatures and characters, superb plots, and genuine often extremely humorous interactions between the crew of the Enterprise, the series follows Kirk and his crew as they explore the boundaries of deep space.

Season One highlights include, ‘Where no Man has Gone Before’ in which Capt. Kirk is forced to do battle with his close friend lieutenant Mitchell, who threatens to take over the galaxy, ‘The Conscience of the King’ where Kirk suspects the head of a theatre troupe to be a notorious mass murderer on the run and the two-part ‘The Menagerie’, in which Spock faces a court marshal after hijacking the Enterprise in a bid to return a dying former Starfleet captain to a forbidden planet. Also look out for a young Joan Collins in “The City on the Edge of Forever”. All in all, Star Trek: the Original Series is the jewel in the franchise’s crown and as Spock always reminded us – “live long and prosper…”

STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES, SEASON 1 is available to own on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment from 30th August 2004.

Character synopsis:

Captain Kirk
One of few characters in TOS who is 100% human, Kirk was born on Earth in 2233. Even his middle name ‘Tiberius’ commanded greatness. Kirk was the first Starfleet captain ever to stand trial and his wife Miramanee died while carrying his baby. Kirk was a true American folk hero and his all time idol was Abraham Lincoln.

Dr Spock
Half human, half Vulcan, Spock was born to a physicist father and a teacher mother in 2230 in Shirkahr, Vulcan. Spock went on to become science officer on board the U.S.S. Enterprise. He later became involved in an arranged marriage, but his bride-to-be, T'Pring, left him at the altar. Spock had a resting pulse rate of 242 bpm.

Dr McCoy
Another fellow human, Dr ‘Bones’ McCoy is perhaps best known for his infamous line “Damn it Jim, I’m a doctor, not a… (moon shuttle conductor, bricklayer, psychiatrist, escalator, engineer” etc. etc.)

Scotty
Despite common myth, the words “beam me up, Scotty” were never uttered on any of The Original Series shows. Although mortal Scotty lost his heart to Lt. Mira Romaine, his most intimate relationship was always with the U.S.S. Enterprise.
