My husband is a Star Trek fan. We have the Star Trek Original Motion Picture Collection and the Star Trek The Next Generation Motion Picture Collection in our DVD collection. He watches both these sets of DVD over and over again. So for his 50th birthday in early 2014, I have decided to include Star Trek The Complete Original Series DVD Seasons 1-3 in the gift basket I am doing for him.
Since it is his 50th birthday, I am doing something special by making a gift basket on my own. The gift basket will contain all his favorite things, favorite movies, favorite comics, favorite scent, favorite family pictures which I did into a photo book and more. It is so much fun to do all this planning. I have already started collecting all these things to be put into his gift basket since early this month even though his birthday isn’t until February 2014.
I think he will love the Star Trek The Complete Original Series DVD or Star Trek TOS the most. Although we watched them when they were playing on TV previously, it has been a long time since. He jokingly calls me “The Entertainment Officer” at home because I plan all of his entertainment needs. I know him very well and what he likes and Star Trek happens to be one of his favorite series. He will love to watch the Star Trek team boldly go where no man has gone before.
To me the best gift for a Star Trek fan would be this original TV series that first introduced the original Star Trek Crew; Captain James T Kirk, Spock and Leonard McCoy and all the adventures of the USS Enterprise.
How many episodes does the Star Trek TOS have?
Season 1 – 29 episodes
Season 2 – 26 episodes
Season 3 – 24 episodes
Here is a list of the Star Trek Original Series episodes with all the titles and the order in which they were broadcasted.
The DVD is the remastered version. It is amazing to watch. Even though the original series first began screening in 1966, they don’t look outdated at all. Highly recommended for all Star Trek fans. This is where it all began.
My Favorite Star Trek Captains
My favorite Star Trek Captain is Captain James T Kirk (1966-1969) followed by Captain Jean-Luc Picard (1987-1994) but that’s just my personal opinion. The other Star Trek Captains are Captain Benjamin Sisko (1993-1999), Captain Kathryn Janeway (1995-2001) and Captain Jonathan Archer. (2001-2005).
That is why I recommend Star Trek The Original Series and Movies as a starter gift for the Star Trek fan followed by Star Trek The Next Generation Series and Movies collection and I did not include Star Trek Voyager Complete Series in my recommendations.
