Pros:Great Stories and extras.

Cons:Some episodes are not as good as in the past due to budget constraints.

The Bottom Line: A solid set and a must have for collectors.


Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

The third season set of the original Star Trek concludes the original televised run of legendary exploits of the Star Ship Enterprise under the command of Capt. James T. Kirk, (William Shatner), and the half human half Vulcan Spock (Leonard Nimoy), and ships doctor Leonard Mc Coy (Deforest Kelly), whose abrupt emotions belies his gracious Southern charm and brilliant skills.
The third season was plagued by severe cuts in budget and production time which resulted in some episodes such as “Spock’s Brain” that made fans groan but nevertheless provided solid entertainment.

Despite the restriction on the show, and the fact that the reduced budget required many shows to be confined aboard the ship or a single location, the third season of Star Trek does have some outstanding and very memorable shows. It can be argued that with the reduced budget, the cast had to carry the shows as costly fx were not as abundant as they were in previous years. This leads to deeper more emotional shows that broaden the relationships between the characters and provides many dramatic moments.

The set also contains the never aired original pilot “The Cage” as well as an introduction by the series creator Gene Roddenberry as well as the classic episodes “Day of the Dove”. “Spectre of the Gun” “The Tholian Web”, and “Let That be your Last Battlefield”.

Includes 24 episodes on eight discs, plus two versions of

Red Shirt Logs The attractive set is a must for any fan or collector and underscores what an incredible show this was and makes you wonder what other gems would have been created if Star Trek had a few more years on television before being revived on the big screen due to great syndication numbers.
