Martin Landau was originally offered the role of Commander Spock. Leonard Nimoy had appeared on The Lieutenant (1963), an earlier series produced by Gene Roddenberry, who at the time thought that the actor would be well cast as an alien (when he ran out of choices). Nimoy inspired the creation of the character. Shortly after Star Trek (1966)'s cancellation, he took over the role of disguise-expert on Mission: Impossible (1966) when Landau left that show. Mission: Impossible was also filmed on the same lot, therefore, when "Star Trek" ended, Nimoy merely went next door to go to his new job. Also, Landau would go on to star in another science fiction space exploration television series, Space: 1999 (1975), whose last season was produced by Fred Freiberger, who also produced Star Trek's final season.

Numerous instances where Kirk orders phasers fired, but the animation is that of the photon torpedoes. See more »
Robert Lansing is the only guest star on this series to be billed at the top of the program - just after the episode's title - rather than in the end credits. After the words, "Assignment: Earth", came, "Guest Star Robert Lansing as Mister Seven." See more »
The episode "The City on the Edge of Forever" features background music on the VHS and laser release that's different than the broadcast version. The original music has been restored for the DVD release. See more »
This show changed the way we looked at science fiction forever. Before there was The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and the prequel Enterprise. There was Captain James T. Kirk and crew on the Starship Enterprise. Exploring new worlds and new life. Traveling through time and space. Leonard Nimoy is great has Mr. Spock, the half human/half alien science officer and second in command. Deforest Kelly is also great Has Dr. Leonard Bones Mccoy, our favorite whiney Doctor, who came out with favorite sayings like "He's dead Jim" and "I'm a Doctor not a brick layer". The special effects may have seemed hoaky at times. But the show was still great in it's day. Gene Roddenberry was a genuis when he created this show. The show was well acted by everyone . So Star Trek fans live long and prosper.
