Star Trek: The Original Series and Phase II

If you are a fan of the sci-fi genre, you've probably heard of Star Trek. Star Trek follows the crew of the USS Enterprise in the 23rd century. These crew members include Captain James T. Kirk, half-human, half-Vulcan science officer Spock, ship doctor "Bones" McCoy, communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura, and helmsman Lt. Hikaru Sulu. As they explore the unknown, the crew is often confronted with alien races.

Star Trek: The Original Series

Star Trek: The Original Series is a television series that follows the crew of the USS Enterprise during the 23rd century. The series' main characters include Captain James T. Kirk, half-Vulcan science officer Spock, ship doctor "Bones" McCoy, communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura, and helmsman Lt. Hikaru Sulu. During the series, the crew encounters various alien races and faces challenges.

The Original Series debuted on September 8, 1966 and ran for three seasons on NBC. In Canada, it aired on CTV. The series was so popular that it spawned a cult following. It became one of the most popular television series ever, and has been adapted into countless other media. The USS Enterprise is on a five-year mission to explore new worlds and find new life. It boldly goes where no man has gone before.

After a successful pilot episode, the show moved on to the next stage. Roddenberry secured a three-year deal with Desilu, a production company owned by Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball. Initially, the series' characters - which were both white men - were named after a white man named Robert April from the "S.S. Yorktown". In the pilot episode, Shatner and Nimoy played the roles of the ship's communications officer, Yeoman Smith, and Captain Kirk.

The Original Series is the first TV show in the franchise and the first in the franchise. This show aired for six seasons, but has since been retroactively renamed as Star Trek: The Original Series. The first season is dedicated to the war between the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets, while the later seasons follow the crew of the starship Discovery on different adventures. The Original Series also holds the record for having the most original novels, including the Pocket Book and James Blish books.

In the early 1970s, the series received mixed reviews. In spite of this, it was still very popular among general audiences. However, Nielsen ratings deemed the show a flop, and it was canceled after only three seasons. It was revived in the 1990s, and reruns have been much more popular than the original run. However, the original series was a failure, and the subsequent episodes are still widely available.

Star Trek: The Animated Series

The original television series, based on the movie of the same name, was produced in 1969. The series featured Mark Lenard as Sarek, Roger C. Carmel as Harry Mudd, Stanley Adams as Cyrano Jones, and Amanda Grayson as Bob Wesley, Kyle, and Kor. There were also voice actors playing the role of Korax and Koloth. The series also featured non-humanoid alien species and officers.

The Animated Series features a cast that was largely unchanged from the Original Series. The voices are mostly the same, but the characters have some distinct features. Spock has the ability to split his body into individual parts, and a character from Terra Ten shrinks to an incredible size to escape the kzinti. The series also features a series of recurring characters, including the Kzinti.

Fans of the show can enjoy e-books, comic books, and even video games. Originally, Paramount Pictures did not consider the series canonical, but after the successful release of The Animated Series on DVD, the restrictions were relaxed. The Animated Series has become more popular than ever, and is now considered an official part of Star Trek canon. As the Animated Series is a part of the TOS universe, many references from it have been incorporated in other Star Trek series.

The Animated Series is the last of the television franchise owned by Paramount Pictures. The series was first released on VHS tapes in 1989. It was later remastered on DVD, and a remastered version of the series was released on 21 November 2006 in Region 1.

Star Trek: Discovery

The crew of the USS Shenzhou is sent to investigate the location of an obscured object and a damaged satellite. In their investigation, First Officer Michael Burnham discovers an ancient carved vessel. However, when the vessel is attacked, Burnham accidentally kills a Klingon soldier. The remaining crew members, led by Captain Janeway, decide to help the Klingons, but soon after the ship is attacked by the Klingon house, the Discovery is destroyed.

The show is set in the year 2351, where the United States and Klingons are locked in a conflict. Discovery is the first Federation ship to encounter the Klingons. Its crew is made up of crew members who are all ethnic Klingons. However, in the series, the crew has a number of differences. The characters are very different from the Klingons, and it is not immediately clear which is more human.

Despite the differences, the series continues the tradition of gender-bending roles and racial equality. The first-person perspective of the character Michael Burnham makes the series feel fresh and unique. The first season of Star Trek: Discovery was released on September 24 on CBS. It will be available on CBS All Access, a subscription streaming service. Moreover, season one and two are available on CBS All Access. Unlike the previous series, Discovery will be more relevant in today's world where technology has changed so dramatically.

After the Discovery crew rescues the Klingons, the crew discovers they've accidentally entered a parallel Mirror Universe. Stamets is unconscious and unable to power the spore drive, and Lorca orders the crew to rescue him. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Paul Stamets, an astromycologist, overhears a conversation between her and a colleague aboard a different starship. After the Discovery crew arrives at the star, Stamets leads the boarding party to investigate and finds a crew of Klingons, a Klingon, and a mycelial network that has destroyed the planet.

The series premiered to positive reviews from critics and became the most popular original series on CBS All Access. Star Trek: Discovery has been followed by two aftershows, titled Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Short Trips, as well as various tie-in media. In the future, the show will follow up with Star Trek: Next Generation and Star Trek: Discovery, and it will likely expand the Star-Trek universe.

Star Trek: Phase II

Star Trek: Phase II is a previously unproduced American science fiction television series. It was created by Gene Roddenberry and was intended as a direct sequel to the original Star Trek, which ran from 1966 to 1969. Star Trek: Phase II was not produced, but its working title, "Star Trek: The Next Generation", has since been incorporated into several films and television shows. This article will discuss the history of this unproduced series.

The first two Star Trek movies, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Enterprise", were both inspired by the original series. Both shows developed elements of Klingon and Romulan culture, and featured many original concepts. The original series' scripts are now published in a 1997 book titled Star Trek: The Lost Series, written by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. These scripts also serve as original story treatments for commissioned stories.

While Phase II was a huge project, it had some big ideas for its storyline. Many of the same actors and crew members appeared, but the writing was more mature and the tone was headier. Star Trek: Phase II could have carried the franchise much further, but it did not. Perhaps it was because the universe was too well-established for much more creative freedom. The show still managed to make its mark, but it did not succeed on the ratings front.

In this sequel to the original "Star Trek" series, Captain Kirk returns. The crew of the Enterprise is retrofitted, and this version was directed by Ralph McQuarrie. Leonard Nimoy initially declined the role of Spock, but David Gautreaux stepped in. The film also introduced three new regular characters: navigator Lt. Ilia and ship's executive officer Willard Decker. However, the original movie never used the two scripts.

The producers of Star Trek: Phase II had a brainstorming session where they conceived ideas for the two-hour pilot and thirteen one-hour episodes. Among the ideas were the concept of time travel, the impregnation of Ilia, and lucid dreaming technology, similar to the holodeck. After a successful Star Wars premiere, this episode was given a new name, Star Trek: Phase II.
