Performance

As big fans of the series my wife and I were anxious to purchase the full 3 season set when it became available. I shopped around and found Buy.com having the best price and I pre-ordered it since it was not yet shipping. It arrived early, to our pleasent surprise. Upon opening and examining it we noticed that the discs were double sided and that one side was in HD-DVD. OK, so obviously these were manufactured before the outcome of the Hi Def DVD wars were over and now with Blue Ray winning those wars the only thing one can do to watch these in Hi Def is to find a HD-DVD player...Does Buy.com have any for sale???

-Larry F. quote

I've been a fan of the original series since I was a boy. This show set a new level for a Sci Fi series and paved the way for many more to follow. I'd seen a few of the remastered shows on television and decided that I wanted to own the complete set. I've not been disappointed. It's great re-visiting the enterprise, especially seeing it, in all it's amazing CGI glory. If you enjoy the show and want to see the best in current effects wizardry, then this set is for you. You'll love it.

Editors Note
Note Going boldly where no man had gone before, Gene Roddenberry's cult phenomenon STAR TREK debuted in 1966 and reflected that decade's optimistic preoccupation with space travel. Set in the 23rd century, the series chronicled the intergalactic adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise on its five-year mission to explore the outer reaches of space. Encountering a now-iconic assembly of innovative alien life forms such as the Klingons, Romulans, and Tribbles, the ship's jumpsuited crew was a then unheard-of font of multiculturism: Asian Sulu (George Takei), African-American Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), and Scotsman Montgomery Scott (James Doohan). But it was the contrasting personalities of cooly logical Vulcan Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), emotionally intuitive medical officer Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley), and womanizing ship captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner in definitive overacting mode) that lent the series much of its charm--and spawned a rabid cult following that continues to fuel costume sales and convention bookings to this very day. This collection presents the groundbreaking show's first three seasons. Beam me up, Scotty!
