STAR TREK THE ORIGINAL SERIES: SEASON 2 brings you yet more special features only available on DVD, and with three hours of exclusive material, you will be left gasping for the next instalment.
Captain James T. Kirk played by WILLIAM SHATNER continues to lead the Starship Enterprise and its crew through a combination of exciting escapades in space. Following the incredible success of Season 1, Season 2 brings us more adventure and an introduction to a host of new characters including the young and quirky Pavel Chekov (WALTER KEONIG), and sees the rise of Dr. McCoy (DEFOREST KELLEY) as a leading part in this classic Sci-Fi adventure.
Highlights of Season 2 include 'Amok Time', where we are introduced to the Vulcan ritual of "pon farr" and Mr. Spock begins to exhibit strange and erratic behaviour before it emerges that he must return to Vulcan and mate with his bride or die. 'Trouble with Tribbles', where the Starship Enterprise is over run by warm, fuzzy, creatures that hide a deadly danger to the federation; and 'Journey to Babel', in which the Enterprise is appointed to transport ambassadors to the Babel conferences, this episode introduces Spock's parents: Ambassador Sarek (MARK LEONARD) and his human wife Amanda (JANE WYATT).
