Star Trek - Long-range Sensors Detect Episode List, Cover Art for 'The Best Of, Volume 2' DVD

Single-disc release coming on November 17th, to tie in with the DVD for the recent film

Posted by David Lambert
Yesterday we reported on CBS/Paramount's announcement for a November 17th DVD release of Star Trek - The Best Of, Volume 2. Now we've got new details about this $14.99 SRP release of stories from the original series: the list of episodes included, plus an early look at the cover art. Note, however, that the art isn't necesarily final, and could be subject to change. It looks great just the way we see it, though:
  • "Where No Man Has Gone Before" - Some years before, the S.S. Valiant had encountered a unknown energy barrier at the rim of the galaxy. Something had then made its captain destroy his ship. The U.S.S. Enterprise finds the Valiant's disaster record-marker, which reveals that just prior to its destruction the crew had been searching library tapes for any information on psionics. The U.S.S. Enterprise then arrives at the edge of the galaxy, and the same force affects the ship's drives that must have affected those of the Valiant. Kirk notices a strong personality change in his good friend, Lieutenant Gary Mitchell, whose latent psionic abilities have now been heightened... (Season 1)
  • "Space Seed" - A piece of one of history's great puzzles falls into place when Kirk's crew comes across the S.S. Botany Bay, an old-style, pre-warp sleeper ship from Earth that contains several bodies in stasis. Amongst these bodies is Khan Noonien Singh, a genetically engineered strongman and one of the great leaders of Earth's Eugenics War of the 1990s. Although he disappeared without a trace then, once Khan is aroused from his long sleep he soon reveals the ambition, strength and intelligence that helped him conquer a quarter of the Earth. Is the Enterprise next? (Season 1)
  • "A Piece of the Action" - The planet Sigma Iotia II's last visit by the Federation was by the U.S.S. Horizon ... a hundred years before. Realizing the lapse in monitoring of the planet, the Federation sends the U.S.S. Enterprise to observe the progress of Iotia's population. Beaming down to the planet's surface, Kirk, Spock and McCoy are surprised to see a much different society - an Earth-like 1920s gangster culture - than was reported by the U.S.S. Horizon crew. Bodily seized, the landing crew are taken before one of the major planetary leaders, mobster Bela Oxmyx. Wishing to unite the population under his rule, Bela offers Kirk "a piece of the action" in exchange for the technologically advanced weapons of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Meanwhile, the other lead gangster, Jojo Krako, has his own ideas about being the head mobster... (Season 2)
  • "Journey to Babel" - The U.S.S. Enterprise is appointed to transport ambassadors from many worlds to the Babel Conferences. Among those aboard are Ambassador Sarek of Vulcan and his human wife, Amanda...Spock's parents. Keeping peace aboard the ship is complicated for Kirk by an unidentified vessel following the Enterprise, and high tensions running among delegates on board. At a cocktail party, Ambassador Gav, a Tellarite, quarrels openly with Sarek about the admission of Coridan into the Federation. When Gav is later murdered, circumstantial evidence points to Sarek. The strain of such an accusation causes Sarek's already-existing heart condition to worsen, and he has the Vulcan equivalent of a heart attack. McCoy battles with the less-familiar Vulcan physiology to try and correct the damage, and Spock is needed as a blood donor for the operation. But when Kirk is attacked, Spock must assume command of the Enterprise. (Season 2)
