Although the original Star Trek is still my favorite of the tv series franchise, in the age of the internet, I find myself watching it less than some of the others. That is mainly because I am drawn to time-travel/alternate reality story-lines these days, and the original series had fewer of them.
In my blog post, Star Trek: Voyager – Time Travel/Alternate Reality Episodes, I went back through the 7 Star Trek Voyager seasons and linked to time travel/alternate reality episodes on Amazon Prime Video.
Now, I am doing the same with the original Star Trek series. Below, you will find brief episode descriptions and links to the episode on Amazon Prime, as of this episode compilation. They are currently free to view, if you have Amazon Prime.
