Star Trek Fan Collective – Captain’s Log (DVD Set)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C+     Episodes: C+



Are you Star Trekked out?  If the answer is yes, we cannot blame you.  Paramount/CBS has issued every season of every show they ever made and at least two versions of each feature film.  However, while J.J. Abrams tries to revive the franchise with its eleventh feature film (under the curse of “the odd ones” as Roger Ebert has put it) comes a new DVD set of sorts.  Star Trek Fan Collective – Captain’s Log offers five discs for the five live action series.


Each has the favorite of the lead captain, then adds two fan favorites, plus a bunch of extras that include new intros and mini-featurettes by the actors who played them, a piece on Kirk’s legacy with William Shatner, the impact of the total franchise with Avery Brooks, intro to this set by Shatner and closing piece by Scott Bakula.


This critic is only a fan of the original show and animated sequel, with the latter live-action series becoming progressively worse.  We have reviewed this material extensively here on the site and offer the following links to those live action shows so you can see the picture and sound quality of each show, as the prints used here are repeats of the original releases.  Those expecting the new classic Trek upgrades can forget it.  Those links are:


Original Series



Next Generation/Deep Space Nine















We strongly recommend The Animated Series instead, as reviewed here:




The bottom line: this is for the most diehard fans only.  All others will likely skip it.
