Loved the original series when shown on the BBC back in the 70's.
Nice to revisit it now and appreciate the great plots and storylines.
This series really was ahead of it's time. The new spaceship and space travel scenes have had a discreet CGI makeover and they look awesome. I think that they have been created very well and give the series a fresh look without spoiling the original feel of the series.

I can't understand why so many people have complained about the cardboard slots that house the discs.
All the discs fit fine and are not scratched, or rattling around loose as people seem to suggest, and the quality of the discs is excellent.
I found no problem in removing the discs from the slots and re-inserting them .
To be honest, there is more chance of bending a disc when trying to release it from the hard plastic grips found in some other DVD cases, than gently sliding these into their cardboard slots, so what's the problem?

A real bargain from Amazon and recommended.

I felt awful clicking the 2 star tab, as I'm a life-long Star Trek fan and this is a pop culture icon... the very definition of a five star series. However, it is my duty as a consumer to warn other prospective buyers and to urge you to pay the premium and buy the separate season sets over this complete set. Reason being? Scratched discs from the awful cardboard slot style packaging, the likes of which you receive FREE promotional discs in a Sunday newspaper.

No doubt you have come across all the new 'Full Journey' sets... TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT on DVD, and TOS also on Blu-ray disc? Well common sense and a previous experience of this cardboard slot type packing should steer anyone away from the DVD sets (the slimline season sets are much higher quality and cheaper), knowing how prone DVD discs are to scratching, but knowing how difficult it is to scratch a Blu-ray disc, I assumed I'd be safe to go ahead and order the TOS set on Blu-ray and save myself a considerable sum of money (the individual season sets on Blu-ray, unlike in the case of the DVD's, are higher priced). Well yes, I did save some money... and then received my box-set with several discs rattling around loose inside. I quickly put them back and stored it on my shelf, thinking I was safe as Blu-ray discs are hard coated. I started playing the odd disc here and there, but noticing several surface scratches on the discs as I took them from their card slots. This could only be caused by this ridiculously cheap packaging, or cheap manufacture of the Blu-ray discs.

What they have done to the original film negatives of this TV series is almost miraculous. They have cleaned it up so well that it looks as though it was originally made for DVD, without (and here's the important bit) taking anything away from the original material. To see how well it has been done, just take a look at the trailers (which haven't been cleaned up) or the mini documentary on disc 1, which shows side by side comparisons. If they hadn't done this work, I would have been very disappointed with the quality, but the finished product is absolutely superb. Even the theme music (both versions) has been re-recorded using the original manuscripts, together with some of the people who worked on the originals, so apart from the quality of the sound, it would be very difficult to tell the different versions apart. My only disappointment and it is a very minor one, is that Kirk's famous opening lines sound a little too quiet (strange though, the voice sounds fine in the mini documentary). This wouldn't be enough to knock even one star off my rating though. If you are a fan of the original Star Trek, you won't be disappointed with this.

This set contains every single episode, split across three seasons. For its time, a progressive and forward-thinking science fiction series. The distinctive style and memorable characters lend it a timeless quality, although many aspects of the production, theatrical style and melodramatic acting will no doubt find it struggling to appeal to modern audiences. Season 1 and 2 contain some classic episodes and iconic moments that have defined a whole generation, whereas season 3 does not hold up to the same standard and features a fair few duds. It is what it is, however, and it's preserved beautifully on Blu-ray.

The picture quality is mostly excellent and, I suspect, as good as this show is ever going to look (in its original 4:3 aspect ratio at 1080p, as it should be). As the show was shot and edited on film, you do occasionally get some fuzzier shots where they originally created an optical effect on the film or a fade-in/-out or dissolve or camera shake. Unfortunately, on Blu-ray, this is somewhat distracting because I can immediately tell when a scene is about to end or a visual effect is about to happen because the shot will appear noticably blurrier. I never noticed this before on DVD, but on Blu-ray, it is very apparent. The vast majority of shots are "raw footage", and these look incredibly good. You can see all the detail in fabrics and sweat and pores on the actors' faces. The detail and colours are wonderful and vibrant. At least 90% of each episode looks stunning.

The Blu-ray sets retain all the original optical visual effects of the Enteprise flying through space as they should do (for prosperity, naturally!) but also a choice of viewing new-ish digital effects instead.
