Kirk



Star Trek
Gene Roddenbury's landmark series from 1966-68. Although predating the first moon landing (July 1969) this show featured many interesting, well acted, far-fetched science fiction stories. Particular good stories include: 'Errand Of Mercy' where Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Bones/Doctor McCoy (DeForest Kelley) try to motivate a backward civilisation (as they see it) to defend themselves, 'City On The Edge Of Forever' with Kirk falling in love with Joan Collins back in the early 20th Century, struggling to return to his own time without changing history, 'Requiem for Methuselah' in which the crew encounter a very old and mysterious earthling with something to hide.

The series was followed by the very variable but sometimes excellent sequel 'Star Trek The Next Generation' which featured the outstandingly good actors Patrick Stewart (playing Captain Jean Luc Picard) and Brent Spiner (playing Data and up to two other characters in a given story). First-rate episodes include 'Time Squared', 'The Survivors', 'Yesterday's Enterprise', 'Tin Man and 'Remember Me'. Other shows followed but had a tendency more towards soap (Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise) than the fast moving far-fetched science fiction of the original series that owed so much of its success to the chemistry between the three lead characters.
