Tribute to TOS : Rare Photos

TREKCORE > SPECIALS > Rare Photos, Part IV

In our continuing celebration of Star Trek's 40th Anniversary, we are pleased to present a look back at the original ground-breaking series cast and crew throughout their decades together. From NBC television program, to syndicated sensation, motion pictures, and honored cultural icon - Star Trek has run the gauntlet. This series of rare photographs are amongst a number of specials that we present as a gift to the trekkie community.

What we have now is the oppurtunity to have a rare and candid look back across time. In the weeks and months that follow, we will be releasing a wide assortment of rarely seen photos from the Original Series, the Motion Pictures and The Next Generation, along with other material, to celebrate Star Trek as a whole. What began August 19th with our 85th Birthday Tribute to Gene Roddenberry continues now, and on through the new year.

We hope you enjoy all of the specials celebrating Star Trek's 40th birthday as much as we have enjoyed putting them together! And if you haven't already, take a look at Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the Original Series photos and our Season 1 gallery of Next Generation images.

Please Note
Due to the wealth of material obtained and uncovered between the second and thid editions of this special, it has been decided to dispense with the chronological order of these sets, and offer what material is available, as it is sorted, restored, and/or viable for public consumption. This is done to fulfill popular demand of all those who have enjoyed the prior sets.
