The celebration of Star Trek’s 47th anniversary continues with tomorrow’s release of Star Trek: The Original Series: Origins, a Blu-ray that gathers together five pivotal episodes that introduced the show’s main characters or iconic villains and creatures. To get fans jazzed, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution have provided StarTrek.com with this great clip from “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” in which Kirk and Spock engage in a game of chess while quite pricelessly debating the human emotion of irritation.
In addition to “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” the Origins Blu-ray includes “The Cage,” the original Star Trek pilot (featuring Pike and Spock); “Space Seed,” which gave fans their first glimpse of Khan; “Errand of Mercy,” in which the Enterprise crew, and fans, first encountered the Klingons; and “The Trouble with Tribbles,” which first unleashed the adorable but troublesome Tribbles.
Star Trek: The Original Series: Origins will run 4 hours and 25 minutes and costs $26.99. Click HERE to pre-order at Amazon.com.
