    Star Trek Voyager tells the story of the crew of the USS Voyager, which becomes stranded in the Delta Quadrant, and we decided to introduce it to you with its fourth series. Voyager is the fifth incarnation of Star Trek series, it follows Captain Katherine Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and her crew, original and assembled along the way.  Many critics describe this series as the best one of the Voyager, along with the addition of Seven (Jeri Ryan) to the crew, even though fans were at first worried that her attractiveness may shift focus from the story. The episode "Living Witness" received special critical accommodation as one of the best episodes of the entire series. Rent it on DVD and explore more content including Braving the Unknown: Season 4 and Time Capsule: Seven of Nine.

  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Series 4 (1995)

    19h 4min

    Next on the Star Trek series list is Deep Space Nine: Series 4. DS9 is considered the breakthrough series, because it dared to steer away from the familiar in Star Trek, while keeping its core values. But most fans are united on where to start watching it, and that is - anywhere after the first two seasons, that's where it really becomes exciting. So, get your sci-fi on with series 3 and this fourth series in the franchise, and join the crew on their interplanetary adventures aboard the Federation station Deep Space Nine. Rent it on DVD where plenty of extra content is waiting for you, like Charting new territory: Deep space nine season four and Bob Blackman's designs of the future.

  • Star Trek: The Original Series: Series 3 (1968)

    1302 minutes

    We continue our voyage with series three, the final season of Star Trek: The Original Series. With TOS lasting for three series, overall 79 episodes, it quickly became a cult TV show. Due to budget cut, series three had a more modest filmmaking process, but nevertheless it is one of the best Star Trek series to date. The final episode called "Turnabout Intruder" revolves around Captain Kirk when his consciousness becomes trapped in the body of a woman bent on killing him and taking over his command while inhabiting his body. Rent this season of Star Trek: The Original Series on DVD and Blu-ray to get a special access to over three hours of new material, which will entice everyone from new fan to hardened Trekkie.

    1262 minutes

    It was rough for the original show to get its second season, but we're glad they did because it deserves a spot on the best Star Trek series list. Series two starts with "Amok Time" where Mr. Spock, as Kirk discovers, must return home to Vulcan to be married, or die. It continues with episodes such as "Who Mourns for Adonais?" and "The Changeling" where the crew of the Enterprise deals with Nomad—an indestructible, planet-destroying space probe. Star Trek: TOS is available for rent on DVD and Blu-ray, remastered in all its glory and containing extra content for film buffs and fans of the show (Special Tribbles Disc with New Commentary, Kirk, Spock, and Bones: Star Trek's Great Trio, etc.).

  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Series 6 (1997)

    19h 4min

    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (abbreviated to DS9) is set in the Star Trek universe in the Milky Way galaxy. This show differs from the others by being quite stationery and not focused on the voyages. Also, it is regarded as one of the best in the Star Trek series because it deviates from the standard formula, it is "less trek and more war". At DS9 we meet new characters, starring Avery Brooks, Nana Visitor and René Auberjonois, but we also see some familiar faces. Series six begins three months into the Dominion War and its impact on the former crew of DS9. Be sure to check it out on DVD where you get 7 discs to watch through including plenty of special features, including Ferengi Rules of Acquisition: The Beginning and Mission Inquiry: Far Beyond the Stars.

    1133 minutes

    We're continuing the best Star Trek series list with another entry from Star Trek: The Next Generation, this time series five. For many, TNG is the most "watchable" series even if you're not a Trekkie, and could be said that Picard is the most well-known Captain because of the show's revival in the early 90s. What's exciting about TNG series 5? Here Picard (Patrick Stewart) pursuits the rogue Ambassador Spock (Leonard Nimoy) into enemy Romulan territory and we see the return of Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton). Without giving too much away, this season is a must-see, and it's adorned with four Emmy Awards. Special features on DVD and Blu-ray give an additional insight into what's going on this time on starship Enterprise.
