No, this small collection of episodes is not at all intended for those who already own the complete Original Series on various formats (though it might end up in some completist's collection for sure)...It's rather a nice introduction to TOS to newcomers who happened to like the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie and want to explore the origins of all the important characters and races in this movie: Pike, Kirk, the Enterprise, Klingons, Tribbles and of course Khan...this 5-episode-selection re-introduces all important elements seen in STID, nothing more, nothing less... If you haven't seen these episodes and don't own the TOS box sets but happened to like STID, this product is for you...a really nice companion for casual viewers who don't want to buy the entire series but still want to understand where the STID elements originated from.

The recent release of "Star Trek Into Darkness" has brought the legendary sci-fi franchise back to the forefront of pop culture. Unfortunately, not everyone who's seen J.J. Abrams' two movies is familiar with "Star Trek's" rich backstory and where many of the characters originally came from. Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios Blu-ray is taking measures to bridge the generation gap and give new fans a crash course in history with "Star Trek: The Original Series - Origins."

"Star Trek: The Original Series - Origins" is made up of five of the first appearances of important characters recently revived in both 2009's "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness." The episodes are introduced by creator Gene Rodenberry's son, Rod. We witness the introductions of Klingons, Tribbles, Khan, Captain Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, and Spock.

"The Cage" is the original pilot for "Star Trek" that never officially aired. Captain Christopher Pike commands the Enterprise with help from his second officer, Mr. Spock. It was turned down by the studio for being too slow and cerebral. Producers re-tooled it into what we know the series to be now.

Captain Kirk takes the helm of the Enterprise for the first time in "Where No Man Has Gone Before." It's officially the third aired episode of the series. However, it is the first one made after "The Cage" and responsible for the show being picked up for TV broadcasting.

"Space Seed" introduces us to genetic superman Khan Noonien Singh and his group of followers. "Errand of Mercy" gives viewers their first look at the fierce Klingons. The cuddly, yet bothersome furry pets being dissected in "Star Trek Into Darkness" are seen for the first time in "The Trouble with Tribbles.

This five-episode compilation is obviously aimed at those new to "Star Trek: The Original Series", not those who can quote every episode or already bought all three seasons on Blu-ray. If you enjoyed either of the J.J. Abrams "reboot" movies, this may be of interest as several of the main characters (most notably Khan, and obviously, Kirk, Pike, Spock and company) are seen here for the first time. The season sets represent a much better value (especially since three out of these five episodes are from Season One), but if you're just looking for a quick primer this isn't a bad one. There are also short new episode introductions by Rod Roddenberry (son of Gene, "Star Trek"'s creator) that give a little bit of insight into each one. Nothing major, but new fans may find them helpful.

My problem, though, isn't with the episodes...even though some of them are just here because they're important, not necessarily the best of the series. The A/V quality is fantastic, too. But only the remastered CGI versions are included, not those with the original 1960s effects. These updated versions were created for the Blu-ray season sets, but fans also had the option of watching the original versions as well. How can we "see where it all began" by ignoring these original versions? What is this, "Star Wars"?

So...four stars for the episodes and -1 for the missing original effects. Again, new and casual fans might like this collection, but I'd still recommend just starting with the excellent Season One Blu-ray set for only $20-$30 more.

This video contains 5 episodes with the most significant characters from the Star Trek: The Original Series. The episodes are: The Cage, Where No Man Has Gone Before, Space Seed, Errand of Mercy and The Trouble With Tribbles. Each episode is the introduction to certain characters in the Star Trek universe and how each one made their mark on the crew of the Enterprise. Also each episode is the original episode that connects it to either another series or movie. This is good to add to the collection for Star Trek fans.

I bought all the fan collective sets, and have all the series in one way or another. I like these shows, and the fact that the newer Star Trek movies have these characters is cool too. In the first Star Trek movie, the romulans went back in time, and changed the future, making the events in some of these not happen the same way. A lot of the reviews love or hate the new movies or old series. I love both, and the time travel, changing the past, is very star trek.
