Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Star Trek The Original Series: Season 3 for 6th December 2004 priced at £69.99. Under the day to day guidance of new producer Fred Freiberger, the Enterprise travels beyond the furthest star into all-new fantastic adventures, pitting William Shatner’s Captain James T. Kirk, Mr Spock and Dr Bones McCoy and their colleagues against monstrous aliens of all shapes and sizes. The conclusion of the original series features the captivating characters, plots and special effects that characterise Star Trek at its best. Along with 26 episodes the 7 disc set, Star Trek The Original Series: Season 3 contains even more especially created features for DVD, with over three hours of new material to entice everyone from new fan to hardened Trekker including one of our favourite character James Doohan’s (Scotty) final interviews.

The release also includes a bonus disc featuring both the black and white and colour versions of ‘The Cage’, the original pilot for Star Trek, featuring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike, Jim Kirk’s predecessor as Captain of the Enterprise, and features a much younger, and more emotional Mr Spock (Leonard Nimoy - the only actor to appear in every episode of Star Trek in the 1960’s).
