"Origins" Blu-ray To Revisit Original Series Firsts
If you’re new to Star Trek: The Original Series or in need of a refresher, look no further than Star Trek: The Original Series – Origins. Due for release on September 10, Origins features five crucial episodes, episodes that introduced the show’s main characters or iconic villains and creatures. The episodes include “The Cage,” the original Star Trek pilot (featuring Pike and Spock); “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” the second pilot (which featured Kirk and aired as the third episode of season one); “Space Seed,” which gave fans their first glimpse of Khan; “Errand of Mercy,” in which the Enterprise crew, and fans, met the Klingons; and “The Trouble with Tribbles,” which first unleashed the cute but problematic Tribbles.
Star Trek: The Original Series: Origins will run 4 hours and 25 minutes and will cost $26.99. Click HERE to pre-order at Amazon.com.
