Amazed they made this in the 60s.
I am 58 and never was a big fan of science fiction. Had seen episodes from Star Trek decades ago, but never was a huge fan.
Well…recently have been watching reruns on a free TV channel. And I am amazed at how good and unique this show was….and is…especially for a show from the 1960s. Much credit is due to William Shatner. He’s a good, versatile actor and was able to “sell” the script with a sense of seriousness and reality that it made up for the low budget sets, costumes and sometimes silly plots. He should have won an emmy for his acting.
Also, loved the vibrant simple colors used on the sets and in wardrobe. The thinly adorned sets were visually enhanced by all these primary colors.
The topics, scientific lingo and gadgets were also far beyond what most people were thinking of before this period. Look at all those cell phones they used in the series. And the flat screen TV monitors. Just way ahead of their time.
Of course, Spock and the doc were great supporting cast members. But without Kirk, William Shatner, the show probably would not have worked.
A True Original That Spawned Many Offspring
Since I was born in 1968, I never got to watch the original airing nor did I even get to see it in reruns and oddly enough, the first time I watched the original Star Trek was through the motion pictures. Then later, I got to see a few episodes here and there but never got the urge to watch all of them until now.
I’m a big fan of Voyager mostly and the other series Deep Space Nine, Enterprise and even Next Generation didn’t quite capture my imagination as much as Voyager did but then recently, I felt it was time to watch the series that made it all possible.
Of course we have to forgive the special effects, rather cheap sets and sometimes clumsy acting but as I started to binge on the series from the beginning through a nicely packaged set, I started to really appreciate just how innovative and groundbreaking it was in a time when no other television show was allowed to create something out of the basic science fiction formula of the era.
By watching the original pilot with Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike and a different cast most of which didn’t survive the new format, I could understand why the change became beneficial to the series since the new characters displayed better chemistry with each other.
What really struck me about this series is just how original it was and how meticulous the makers were in trying to come to grips with many obstacles including lack of funding, fights with executives and very long working hours to make it work. I consider it a real luxury to view it all with fresh eyes and let myself be enchanted by this pure gem which became so popular in syndication to the surprise of many yet I could totally see how ahead of its time it truly was and how important it remains.
I read William Shatner’s book Star Trek Memories before beginning my binge through this universe and the juicy tidbits about production problems and various anecdotes made the journey even more formidable. Sure, some episodes were much better than others and even though I don’t always agree with the majority on which one belongs in which category, I can safely say that as I was able to enjoy something in each and every episode.
The respect and awe I felt by going back in time and experiencing an innovative TV show produced some 53 years ago and the fact that most of it still holds up well today made me give this a strong rating 9 stars. The fact that this show created an entire universe in itself and that many decades after the initial air date still enthralls so many fans is testament enough of its truly special place in TV history.
