Star Trek: The Original Series is a revised title for the series Star Trek, which originally aired as a TV series on NBC from 1966 to 1969. The series began the Star Trek franchise and has gone on to have stories in multiple formats; novels, comics, short stories and video games.

The sub-title The Original Series is used to distinguish it from its sequel series, and from the larger Star Trek franchise. The sub-title is used on some products, such as DVDs, however novels and comics continue to title TOS publications simply as Star Trek.

Overview

Star Trek the TV series, and many of the subsequent stories, chronicled the voyages of the starship Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk on its Five-year mission of exploration through the Alpha and Beta Quadrants in the late 2260s. The series later spawned a movie-series, which, along with fiction in other formats, continued the adventures of Kirk and his crew through to the end of the 23rd century and onto a new ship; the Enterprise-A.

Many TOS stories focus on the three figure heads of the Enterprise; Captain James T. Kirk, first officer and science officer Spock and chief medical officer Leonard McCoy. These are commonly accompanied by chief engineer Montgomery Scott, communications officer Nyota Uhura, helmsman Hikaru Sulu and navigator Pavel Chekov. Other prominent Enterprise crewpersons include nurse Christine Chapel and yeoman Janice Rand.

While the majority of TOS stories are based on the voyages of the Enterprise, the series also encompasses the careers of the primary and supporting characters before, after and away from the Enterprise as well as the larger interstellar politics of the era. Other prominent settings for the series include the USS Excelsior, under the command of former Enterprise crewman Hikaru Sulu, and stories set well into the 24th century with the various adventures of the TOS characters in later periods of Star Trek history. Additionally TOS stories encompass the voyages of the Enterprise preceding Kirk's command, under captains Robert April and Christopher Pike.

Episodes and movies

In its original run, seventy-nine episodes of The Original Series were produced before the series was canceled at the end of its third season. The live-action episodes were followed by a twenty-two episode animated series, also called Star Trek, though commonly referred to as Star Trek: The Animated Series. In 2006 the original live-action episodes began to receive a digital face-lift, with the original footage being carefully restored, and the original special effects being replaced with new high definition CGI effects.

Following from the TV series the original cast returned for a series of six feature films set in a period after the original episodes. A seventh TOS movie, the eleventh Star Trek film in total, is currently in production for a release in 2009. The new film will see the original characters recast and a return to the era of the original TV series, before the setting of any of the earlier films.

Prose

Mission to Horatius, the first original Star Trek prose story, published in 1968

Off the screen the first original Star Trek story was Mission to Horatius published by Whitman Publishing, following Bantam Books' first novelization, Star Trek 1, by James Blish. Bantam took on the Star Trek license, producing a series of novelizations of the original episodes by Blish, a selection of "Fotonovel" adaptations of episodes, and a series of original novels by a variety of authors, starting with Spock Must Die!, also by James Blish. Bantam produced a total of eleven volumes of novelizations, twelve fotonovels, thirteen original novels and two short story anthologies.

Meanwhile in the 1970s a separate license was awarded to Ballantine Books to produce novelizations of the episodes of The Animated Series, all were written by Alan Dean Foster. In 1977 Random House (the parent company of Ballantine) produced four illustrated Star Trek books aimed at a younger audience, two of which were pop-up books.

The novelization of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the first Pocket Books Star Trek novel

In 1979, coinciding with the release of the first Star Trek movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Pocket Books took over as the publisher of Star Trek prose. Pocket kicked off their line with a novelization of the movie, which was also number one in their line of numbered novels. Pocket produced novelizations of subsequent movies and continued their numbered novel line on until 2002 with In the Name of Honor at number ninety-seven.

In addition to their regular paperback numbered series Pocket produced occasional unnumbered novels in hardcover and larger-sized paperback format, starting in 1986 with Enterprise: The First Adventure. By the time Pocket wound down its numbered series they had begun to publish more stand-alone novels and miniseries in the standard paperback format, as well as shorter prose works published collectively in anthologies.

Amongst the unnumbered novels Pocket have published a series of books by William Shatner, the actor who played James T. Kirk, which bring Kirk back to life in the 24th century, and otherwise explore the life of Kirk. These novels are generally considered to be a separate continuity, informally known as the Shatnerverse, which is not referenced by other novels to avoid confusion.

Harbinger, the first novel in the TOS-era Vanguard series

Original Series stories have appeared in many of the crossover miniseries Pocket Books have published, including Invasion!, Day of Honor, Double Helix, The Captain's Table, The Badlands, Section 31, Gateways, The Brave and the Bold, Mirror Universe & Myriad Universes,

In 2006 Pocket celebrated the 40th Anniversary of The Original Series with a wide range of publications, including the reprinting of several classic TOS novels, and TOS's first eBook miniseries; Mere Anarchy.

Pocket Books have also created two new series based off of The Original Series; In 2001 the New Earth miniseries served as the jumping-off point for the Star Trek: Challenger which had it's own novel and novella the following year as part of the Gateways crossover series (though to date those two stories remain the only publications in the Challenger series). In 2005 Pocket launched a second spin-off series; Star Trek: Vanguard, which chronicles the adventures of the crew of Starbase Vanguard, paralleling the events of The Original Series episodes to expand on history and setting of that era.

Additionally TOS characters play prominent roles in several books in The Lost Era series, which spans the period of time between the TOS and TNG eras. The character of Montgomery Scott has a recurring role in the Star Trek: Corps of Engineers series, including the Foundations miniseries set in the TOS-era, which established the USS Lovell which later appeared in other TOS-era CoE stories, including crossovers with the Vanguard series.

In 2010 Pocket Books also started to publish original stories set in the alternate reality of the movie Star Trek, starting with Alan Dean Foster's Refugees.

Comics

The Planet of No Return, the first Star Trek comic

Like prose publications The Original Series comics also began to be published shortly after the series’ debut and have been published by almost every company to obtain the Star Trek comics license since. The first Star Trek comic was The Planet of No Return, published by Gold Key Comics in 1967, Gold Key continued to publish Star Trek comics until 1979, producing sixty-one issues in total.

In the United Kingdom a separate series of Star Trek comics was produced between 1969-1973, presented as a weekly comic strip in the genre magazines Joe 90: Top Secret, TV21, and Valiant. A total of thirty-seven story arcs were released over two-hundred-and-fifty-six issues. An additional eleven one-off stories were published in issues of the Joe 90 annual, Radio Times, TV21 annual, Valiant Super Special, and the Mighty TV Comic Annual.

From 1975 to 1979, Peter Pan Records released a series of Star Trek stories on LPs. Six of these stories were also presented as comic books which accompanied some releases of the records.

In 1979 McDonald's released several short comics in their promotion of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. They produced six short strips adapting scenes from the film, and five short strips telling original stories.

In 1980, following the release of The Motion Picture, Marvel Comics launched a new line of comics. Their series ran for eighteen issues over two years.

Also following from the release of The Motion Picture was a series of comic strips published in US newspapers. Over four years the series of over one-thousand-four-hundred separate strips completed twenty different story arcs.

The Wormhole Connection, DC Comics' first Trek-comic

In 1984 the comics license moved again, this time to DC Comics. DC began with an ongoing series which ran for fifty-six issues, three annuals, a special two part Who's Who in Star Trek? publication and adaptations of the latest movies, until 1988.

Following a brief pause, DC began a new regular series, which ran eighty issues, six annuals, three specials and several miniseries and one-shot issues until DC finally finished with Star Trek comics in 1995.

Flesh of My Flesh, the first issue of Marvel Comics' Early Voyages series

In 1996 Marvel Comics returned to the Star Trek license. On their second run Marvel produced several distinct series, the first TOS series being Star Trek: Early Voyages, which over seventeen issues chronicled the voyages of the Enterprise under Captain Pike. A five-part miniseries Star Trek: Untold Voyages depicted the voyages of the Enterprise between the films Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and TOS stories also appeared in most issues of the Star Trek: Unlimited series and two one-shots; Fragile Glass and Star TreX.

In 1999 WildStorm Comics took on the Star Trek license. They produced relatively few TOS comics, just two one-shots; All of Me and Enter the Wolves, and a selection of short comics in the anthology Star Trek: Special.

In 2006 TokyoPop published their first book of Star Trek manga. Their first three books made up the Star Trek: The Manga series, which told fourteen stories from the five-year mission era.

In 2007 IDW Publishing picked up the Star Trek license. To date they have chosen to concentrate on TOS and TNG comics and as such have produced a number of TOS issues. IDW's first TOS miniseries was Klingons: Blood Will Tell which retold several episodes of TV series from the Klingons point-of-view. They have gone on to produce several TOS miniseries, exploring both the standard TOS setting in series such as Year Four and more obscure angles on the series in series such as Assignment: Earth. Elements of TOS have also appeared in crossover miniseries such as Alien Spotlight and Countdown.

In 2009 a short (six-page) comic was published in an issue of Wired magazine. The story, "When Worlds Collide: Spock Confronts the Ultimate Challenge", was a tie-in with the latest Star Trek movie which was to be released shortly after, and was written by the film's writers. The issue of the magazine was edited by the film's director.

Audio books

The first star Trek record set by Peter Pan Records, featuring three stories

The first Star Trek audio productions were released by Peter Pan Records between 1975 and 1979. The company produced eleven original stories which they released in varying combinations as twenty-three different records, sometime with accompanying comic book versions of the stories (which were made for six of the stories).

Following Pocket Books' holding of the Star Trek prose publication license, Simon and Schuster Audioworks have produced audio adaptations of numerous Star Trek novels. The company has also produced a limited number of original audio productions: Three stories, in the Captain Sulu Adventures series, which feature Sulu as commander of the USS Excelsior; and two released in the Alien Voices series, both featuring debate between Spock, and Q (from the Star Trek: The Next Generation series).

Video games

Strategic Operations Simulator, one of the earliest Star Trek video games

Unlike prose and comic products, video games were not produced as early as the 1960s beginning of TOS as the technology for video games was only in the early stages of development at that time. The first Star Trek video games began to appear in the 1980s, with releases for arcade games and home computers such as the Apple II, Commodore 64 and DOS systems. As computer technology developed TOS video games advanced, two of the major early produces of Trek games were Simon & Schuster Interactive and Interplay, primarily producing games for the PC.

The early 2000s saw the release of relatively few TOS games, as the license holder at the time, Activision, concentrated on games set in later eras of the franchise. Activision dropped their license in 2003, and several companies have since produced TOS games; including TDK, who released the mirror universe centered game Shattered Universe for the Playstation 2 and Xbox consoles; Jumbuck Entertainment Ltd who released two TOS games for mobile and PDA devices; and Bethesda Softworks who made Tactical Assault, for Sony PSP and Nintendo DS. Most recently TOS games have been released to tie-in with the latest Star Trek movie; several small free games have been distributed using the internet, and D-A-C was released as a downloadable game for X-box 360, Playstation 3 and PC

Elements of TOS have also appeared in a number of multi-series games: Starship Creator included several TOS starship designs and characters; and the games Legacy and Encounters both feature stories spanning the entire Star Trek franchise, so include significant proportions based on The Original Series.

RPGs

The Original Series also has a strong presence in Star Trek RPGs. The first company to produce Star Trek RPG books, FASA, published numerous TOS installments though the 1980s, with just two of it's later publications focusing on TNG. The FASA RPG was also expanded upon in the Stardate magazine.

The tides changed when Last Unicorn Games took on the RPG license, releasing just three TOS books between 1998 and 2000. The most recent company to publish Star Trek RPGs, Decipher released no exclusively TOS books, instead publishing a series of supplements incorporating elements from the entire Star Trek franchise.

Reference works

Star Trek Blueprints, the first Star Trek reference work

The first Star Trek in-universe reference work was Star Trek Blueprints published by Ballantine Books in 1975, following this Ballantine published a handful of other TOS references. Bantam Books also published one Star Trek reference work in 1980, Star Trek Maps. Following these early examples publication of reference books was then taken up by Pocket Books who produced a small number of TOS derived books.

Following the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987, and the other subsequent spin-off series, there has only been one purely TOS reference book published, Captain Kirk's Guide to Women, in 2008. The book The Worlds of the Federation was predominantly TOS based content, but does also include information from the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Other reference books tend to be pan-franchise; the Star Trek Chronology and Star Trek Encyclopedia encompass the entire franchise (at the time of publication). While other reference books find a niches in the Star Trek universe to explore, such as: Q's Guide to the Continuum, The Tribble Handbook, Cookbook, Celebrations, Starship Spotter, The Starfleet Survival Guide, Star Charts and Ships of the Line.

There have also been a number of books detailing and exploring the Klingon language starting with The Klingon Dictionary in 1985, with other books following: The Klingon Way, Klingon for the Galactic Traveler & The Klingon Hamlet.

Beyond prose works another TOS reference work was published by DC Comics in a comic book sized format, illustrated throughout; Who's Who in Star Trek. TOS content can also be found in Star Trek reference magazines such as the Star Trek Fact Files and Star Trek: The Collector's Edition.

As well as in-universe reference works there have also been a number of behind-the-scenes books detailing the production of the series, starting with The Making of Star Trek, published by Ballantine Books in 1968. Pocket Books followed this with The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture and a handful of other TOS books, as well as books on the whole Star Trek franchise, such as The Art of Star Trek, Aliens & Artifacts, Star Trek 101 and the guide to Star Trek prose works Voyages of Imagination.

Other media

In addition to its RPG, Decipher have also produced the Star Trek: Customizable Card Game since 1994, which encompasses the entire Star Trek franchise, including numerous TOS based cards.

TOS imagery can also be found in the Ships of the Line calendars. The 2006 edition of the calendar featured exclusively TOS based imagery as part of the celebrations of the series' 40th anniversary.

As part of the promotional campaign for the 2009 Star Trek movie several websites were created, both by Paramount and by promotional partners with the film. These include Intel's Starfleet Shipyard and Paramount’s Dossiers section on the movie's official website and Experience The Enterprise.

Founded in November of 1996, StarWars.com is the official website for Star Wars run by Lucas Online, the online entertainment arm of Lucasfilm Ltd. Evolving considerably in its twelve-year history, the site has undergone frequent redesigns that are often motivated by the current Star Wars movie in production. Its latest iteration began in 2007.

The site is subdivided into a number of specific sections, including areas dedicated to each film, the expanded universe, and a special section that is only accessible to paid members, known as Hyperspace. One popular segment of the site is the Databank.

Within the Star Wars universe, www.starwars.com was the HoloNet address of an extensive list of historical resources.[1]

History

Original logo of StarWars.com from 1996.

StarWars.com was launched in 1996 to help market the upcoming 1997 release of the Special Edition Star Wars Trilogy. It was the first official movie website to post video documentaries in anticipation of a theatrical release, with the multi-part "Anatomy of a Dewback" series. Following the release of the Special Edition Trilogy, StarWars.com focused its attention on Episode I, providing news updates, behind-the-scenes features and the popular web documentary ("webdoc") series, Making Episode I, which was also known as "Lynne's Diaries" as they were often introduced by Lucasfilm's Head of Public Relations, Lynne Hale. StarWars.com became a web destination in 1998, when it first hosted the Episode I teaser trailer, breaking download records in a major milestone of Internet events.

After the release of Episode I, StarWars.com diversified its content to include coverage of Expanded Universe and community activities. It adopted its multi-section model in the build-up to Episode II. During Episode II, StarWars.com posted weekly videos hosted by Ahmed Best from the set of production, entitled "on location." It also posted a photo or image hand-picked by George Lucas every week as a "George Lucas Select." It was during this period that StarWars.com supplemented its online covering with a biweekly newsletter, the Homing Beacon.

Right before Episode III started principal photography, StarWars.com introduced a pay-service component to its coverage. For an annual subscription rate of $19.99, subscribers would have access to exclusive coverage, including daily Set Diaries from Australia, a live webcam broadcasting from the set, online chats, and exclusive archival content, such as the deleted Episode II scene, "Jedi Attack on the Control Ship" and classic reprints of the original Bantha Tracks newsletter.

In 2004, with the transfer of the Star Wars Insider license from Paizo Publishing to IDG Entertainment, the Official Fan Club ceased to be a licensed property and returned in-house to Lucasfilm, where it became part of StarWars.com Hyperspace. The online subscriber service was renamed Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club. Also that same year, Lucasfilm entered the direct retail business for the first time with the opening of StarWarsShop.com.

In October 2006, StarWars.com was voted as best Official Movie Site at movies.com's first annual readers' poll. In December 2006, the site recognized its ten year milestone as item number 10 of Star Wars: The Best of 2006. On May 24, 2007, the main page of the site underwent a major refurbishment at the start of Celebration IV. Beginning in April 2008, the site's regular update schedule was altered, with stories being posted in increasingly fewer intervals. While the weekly polls rotated and a new page was added to promote the new The Clone Wars film, the site did not post any new updates from May 29 until it relaunched with a new design on July 1, 2008.

The new site is more Flash-based, but much of the site's content has yet to be converted for the new format. Fan reaction to the new site has been decidedly negative, with an outpouring of complaints on message boards regarding the new look, the vast amount of missing content (something the fans paid for with their Hyperspace subscriptions but no longer have access to), and the non-user-friendly navigation. According to official forum posts, all old content will be put back up, much of it now available to all users, but this has yet to happen with even a fraction of the old archives.[2]

Ask the Jedi Council

"Ask the Jedi Council" was a section in the official Star Wars website where selected members of the production crew answered questions raised by fans. The section is now inaccessible, and has been replaced with a "Questions and Answers" section that includes all previous "Ask the Jedi Council" questions. "Ask the Jedi Council" was shut down in 2005.

Databank

The StarWars.com Databank is considered the official online Star Wars databank. Its content is divided into Characters, Locations, Species, Creatures, Technology, Vehicles and Starships, and also categorized by Episode appearance. It even has hundreds of EU articles explaining characters that were in the movies and their adventures along with EU planets and technology.

Note that the Databank is not a fully comprehensive account of all aspects of the Star Wars saga and Expanded Universe material. Many of its pages are out-dated, and a great amount of material is not included—since the Databank largely focuses on the major aspects of Star Wars, as opposed to the minutiae covered on this site—for example, material from the second half of The New Jedi Order series, the Dark Nest Trilogy and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.

Star Wars Hyperspace

Hyperspace began in 2003 as a pay service on StarWars.com, and in 2004 became the official Star Wars fan club and is only located on StarWars.com. It has member-exclusive webstrips, behind-the-scenes features, and other exclusive material, such as exclusive items to buy on StarWarsShop.com. Originally, U.S. subscribers to Hyperspace also became Fan Club members and received subscriptions to the Star Wars Insider magazine. This was later changed so that subscribers could choose which services they wished to receive.

DVD-ROM Exclusive Content

Owners of the Star Wars DVDs have access to an exclusive section of the site that provides "Behind the Scenes" commentary for all six films.

News and Other Features

StarWars.com has updated news about many different Star Wars topics like the Expanded Universe, Episode III and Star Wars general. It updates every weekday, around 5 to 6 p.m. Pacific time, as the content team is situated in San Francisco, California at the Lucasfilm headquarters at the Presidio. Other notable sections include The Clone Wars, StarWarsKids and Community.

Its news headlines are distributed via an RSS feed that many fan sites have incorporated into their front page designs, including TheForce.net.

Blogs

Hyperspace members are able to create a blog at StarWars.com and visit other fan's blogs. Visitors can comment on blogs but can not create a blog without Hyperspace.

Some notable Star Wars celebrities have created Star Wars blogs in the past, which are VIP blogs that only Hyperspace members can comment on.

During Celebration IV in the summer of 2007, StarWars.com launched the Official Star Wars Blog at http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/.

Star Wars Message Boards

Located on StarWars.com, the Star Wars Message Boards are a fun, moderated community where fans can gather up to post messages. From the movies, to expanded universe, to even a non-Star Wars forum called the Cantina, where fans can talk about anything.

Visual Guides

An in-depth look behind-the-scenes at Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in a series of updates containing screenplay sections, rare photographs, trivia and annotated screenshots.

Staff
