  I've started rewatching the shows in the order they were produced. It appears they have much more continuity this way. This pilot is not too bad. Of course, the sets, costumes and special effects of the time are painfully poor, but given the budget this series was allowed, it is a miracle it was even produced. When you get past the quality of the visuals however, it is actually fairly good.

Spock seems a bit overexcited compared to what we are used to, but I guess his Vulcan personality had not yet been much defined and Nimoy was also probably very nervous. It is too bad that they got rid of Number One, because I liked her, but thank god they kept Spock, without whom this series would have never been the same.

Vina was also interesting, but by George, has anyone noticed the weird face she makes right before she run to the fortress on Rigel VII? What kind of expression is that?

The not too subtle rivalry between Number One and Yeoman Colt somehow amused me.
