Disc: 3 out of 4 stars

Even though it was a barely-watched three-season-long series from the mid ’60s, the original “Star Trek” can rightfully make the claim of being the most influential sci-fi TV show in history. “Origins” is the perfect starting point for anyone who has thus far avoided the whole “Trekkie” thing and wants to stick their curious toe in the water. This unique collections culls five of the most popular episodes which includes the pilot (“The Cage”), the first episode with Captain Kirk (“Where No Man Has Gone Before”), the debuts of villains Khan (“Space Speed”) and the Klingons (“Errand of Mercy”) and the comical “The Trouble with Tribbles.”

Technical specs: aspect ratio: Full screen (1080p/4:3), audio: English (DTS-HD MA 7.1, Mono), French, German and Japanese (Mono), subtitles: English, French, German and Japanese.
