    Does Linville's daughter have a similar voice?

    She has a similar cadence. It's free to watch for yourself and decide.

    The show is also on YouTube if that is an easier way to watch.

    Checked out the first episode and was surprised to see that Michael Forrest reprised his role as Apollo. This "fan" series seems to have spent a great amount of love and care in recreating the original era. There were actually times I could almost believe I was watching original Kirk. Story wasn't to bad either.

    IMO the writing on STC is at the same level or, in some cases, a cut above some of the writing on actual ST shows. There's an episode, for example, where Kirk encounters some of his past loves which I thought was so beautifully written it made me tear up. Do yourself a favor and watch the entire series. While all the episodes are not equally great, they are all of a very high quality. The only real thing I had to get used to was some of the acting, but once I let that go, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

    Has anyone done the free download thing? I'm doing it, and I even managed to put the first volume on a blu-ray, but the download is an ISO file, which neither of my blu-ray players will read. Anyone know if it will work if I convert an ISO file to an AVI or MP4?

    BTW, the show's site has a host of extras, including downloadable posters, scripts, and CDs of the original music.

    You should be able to use a ISO burning tool, Windows 10 has this built in, to burn a disc that your players will be able to deal with. Of course you'd have to have a BR burner if you downloaded the BR ISO.

    I was going to do this at work (much better bandwidth) until I saw it's TORRENT files. We have that blocked... :(

    Well, I'm using a Mac, but there has to be an ISO burning tool out there. Yes, I have a blu-ray burner; got it to be able to share HD videos of my kids with relatives (using DVD defeats the purpose of having an HD camera) and for storage. (We'll see if these M-Discs really last 1,000 years.)

    The blu-rays that the STC team has put together are really nice - menus with the poster for each episode, 3 episodes per disc and extras too.

    I use Toast Titanium for that sort of thing - I don't have a BD burner, but I know it's capable of burning BDs... and it does burn DVD ISOs for me just fine.

    I have Toast with the HD plugin and an internal BD burner in my MacPro. Toast burns BDs just fine (and, for HD files that are under 4.7GB, I can use standard DVDs to make "blu-rays").

    There's a free utility called "Burn" that you can use for burning DVDs from ISOs.

    I no longer have cable and installed a digital antenna some time ago. Nonetheless, I still seem to have about 33,000 channels. I was cleaning the kitchen and "The Naked Time" came on. I thought, "Oh, I have seen this 33,000 times" but, honestly, having not seen it in a while, I was riveted. What a great episode. It stays just this side of histrionic, and what great performances from everyone, especially Shatner and Nimoy - really wonderful performances, especially in their confrontation scene. This episode, admittedly easy to parody, is an example of what makes a great Trek. I am so happy it popped up on whatever channel it was on.

    This may be known to some of you, but I just discovered this today. Guess who guest starred together on Bonanza in 1960? The star crossed couple from "Space Seed".

    That’s great, I had not seen that before. Thanks for posting that. There must be many other pre-Star Trek pairings. Such as Shatner and Nimoy on The Man From UNCLE.

    I have lately been watching the aquatic Esther Williams musicals from the late 1940s and early 1950s with my wife; we had never seen them before but she was interested in watching some old school, "everything works out fine in the end" type of fun musicals, and I thought that stuff from MGM would fit the bill. They have, but what's been most amusing to me is that Montalban was a frequent co-star in those films. And he's always great in them, wonderfully charismatic. But it did take a few seconds the first time I saw him appear in one to shake off the "Look how young Khan is!" feeling.

    I remember seeing ST:TMP the first time and thinking, "My God, they all look so old!" Now I see it and think, "My God, they all look so young!"

    Here's something that'll probably be of interest to you: DeForest Kelley in Wanted: Dead or Alive, first-season episode "Secret Ballot," as Sheriff Steve Pax (OAD 2/14/59 [Valentine's Day] on CBS); captured from Mill Creek all-in-one DVD of that 1958-61 CBS Western w/the late Steve McQueen

    Many of the actors on the original Star Trek were guest stars at one point or another on The Virginian (1962-1971). For instance, The Virginian episode "Man Of Violence" from 1963 has DeForest Kelley, "The Showdown" from 1965 has Leonard Nimoy, Shatner is in the episode "The Claim" from 1965, James Doohan is in "The Man Who Couldn't Die" from 1963, etc. Many of the guest stars on TOS were also on The Virginian at some point.
