This single-disc compilation solidly represents one of television's great Science Fiction series. With this set alone, no Star Trek newbie is going to be able to piece together a chronological sense of story nor grasp the scope of the vast Star Trek universe. But what's here is outstanding and fully displays this show's strengths: the well-drawn characters, the tight storytelling and (what has always been Star Trek's biggest asset) thoughtful dialog which is present even in the weakest entry here, "The Measure of a Man". If, like me, you're a lifelong Trekker who's balked at the notion of shelling out serious coin for the full boxed sets, then this'll hold ya nicely. It may be wiser for newbies to start with the Season 1 box and continue from there, but this will certainly whet your appetite.
