    Warp speed doesn't mean flying through space at faster than light speed.
    You fly through a compressed space at "normal" speed and can therefore easily avoid other objects.
    If they were flying at the speed of light, some problems would arise: the time elapsed at different speeds for the crew of the spaceship and, for example, the inhabitants of the earth, the light of the objects appears curved, relativistic increase in mass, etc.

    since 2009 ZDFneo, Tele 5 and SyFy HD have only broadcast the uncut HD remastered episodes. Personally, I also mistakenly thought that TEMPLATES of VIOLENCE has only been running since 2015, but now it's good. As a Stone Age Trekkie and always happy to confirm the repetitions of viewers watching these channels, I can emphasize that only the uncut episodes and newly edited trick pictures are broadcast in space. TOS is one of the few series that have been re-edited in terms of synchro with other new speakers, because the ORIGINAL speakers GG Hoffmann (Kirk), Herbert Weicker (Spock), Manfred Schott (Pille), K.E. Ludwig (Scotty) died 20 years ago. In comparison, I recommend comparing OUR LITTLE FARM! With SAT1 GOLD the old cut version runs with a poorer picture, while with the TNT series the uncut HD version comes with the difference to STAR TREK that almost 4-5 minutes run in the original sound - mostly with subtitles, because the effort would be too much, all of them about 200 episodes to be synchronized. (Especially since 2 different dubbing studios in Munich and HH tried to get the German version first for the ARD, later Hamburg with various speakers and the German version) We Trekkiess should appreciate that this effort was made, that the missing Takes / scenes were also Germanized. On the subject of STEREO, I hardly say anything, as it was probably common in le. Century that German versions were always made in MONO, although there was always STEREO TV. TOO BAD !!

    But I recorded the episode on free-to-air television. So it must have run there too.

    Alone 12x on ZDFneo (2011-2015) and now 3x on Tele5, the two channels are - at least for me - via DVB-T2

    It is not stated here on which station this episode was broadcast in 1999. In addition, this episode itself was not bought, dubbed and broadcast on Sat1's program, neither in 1988 nor in the nineties. Thus, these episodes have never been seen with free-to-air television via antenna or satellite.

Cast & Crew

This and that

After its unsuccessful two-year first broadcast on the US network NBC, a letter campaign persuaded the loyal and solid fan base to produce a third season. However, this was broadcast on an awkward slot on late Friday evening and reached so few viewers that NBC finally discontinued the series. A real miracle happened from 1969 onwards. When "Raumschiff Enterprise" was repeated in various programs in the USA from then on, Kirk and Co. attracted more and more fans, and the series developed into a worldwide phenomenon after its cancellation. The unbelievable success of the reruns led to an animated series, another four spin-off series ("Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century", "Star Trek - Deep Space Nine", Star Trek - Voyager "and Star Trek - Enterprise") and so far 11 movies. His groundbreaking series creation gave Enterprise creator Gene Roddenberry the honor of becoming the first writer and producer to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
From the Television lexicon by Michael Reufsteck and Stefan Niggemeier (as of 2005): 79 pieces. US science fiction series by Gene Roddenberry (“Star Trek”; 1966–1969).
"The space. Infinite expanses. The year is 2200. These are the adventures of the spaceship Enterprise, which with its 400-strong crew will be on the road for five years to explore new worlds, new life and new civilizations. Many light years from Earth, the Enterprise is advancing into galaxies that no human has ever seen before. "
In the 23rd century the spaceship U.S.S. Enterprise sent by the United Planetary Federation on a five-year mission. Its mission is to explore space and discover new civilizations. The spaceship is 289 meters long, armed with phasers and photon torpedoes, and has warp propulsion. The command is taken by Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), a clever man with a sharp mind, but who also likes to fight himself to resolve conflicts. (The "T" stands for "Tiberius".) The Chief Officer Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is semi-Vulcan; his mother is from Earth and his father from the planet Vulkan. Spock, who has no first name, has mastered the Vulcan death grip, with which he can incapacitate opponents without weapons, only with the hand behind their neck. Outwardly his pointed ears distinguish him from humans, inwardly the lack of emotions. Occasionally he still gets a human impulse (McCoy: "You think hope is a human error, Mr. Spock?" Spock: "Right, Doctor. But regular contact, as you as a doctor should know, carries the risk of you gets infected. "). Dr. Leonard "Pill" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) is the ship's doctor. He examines anyone who falls over and usually states: "He's dead, Jim." Engineer Montgomery Scott, known as "Scotty" (James Doohan), takes care of transporting the crew to alien planets and "beams" them there without the spaceship having to land. The bodies of the people to be beamed dematerialize in the transporter space and materialize again at the target point. Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) is the African communications officer, Mr. Hikaru Sulu (George Takei) is the Japanese security officer, Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) is the Russian navigator and Christine Chapel (Majel Barrett) is the nurse. The crew counts a total of 431 people.
During their mission, the crew of the Enterprise encounters many different civilizations on different planets, the appearance of which ranges from the gaseous state to almost human appearance. The Klingons and Romulans are the Federation's enemies.
After the opening credits with the words "Space - infinite expanses ...", each episode began with a logbook entry from the captain, which included a. noted the sidereal time and introduced the action from the off.
The series was initially only moderately successful in the USA. It was only with the numerous repetitions in the 1970s that an ever-growing fan base formed, which ultimately made the series the most successful science fiction series ever. These fans called “Trekkers” or “Trekkies” held meetings called “Star Trek Conventions” and brought huge sums of money to the coffers of the manufacturers of Star Trek fan merchandise. At the end of the 1970s, NASA named a prototype for its space shuttle after the television spaceship.
Spaceship Enterprise was also a great success and a cultural asset in Germany, Spock's statement “Fascinating” and the request “Scotty, beam me up!” Became popular words (in fact, the latter sentence was never spoken in the same way in any series and is like the Derrick sentence “Harry , drive the car before "a legend). Only one episode, “Stencils of Violence”, was not shown on German television, but we did it on video and DVD (and was later shown at least on pay TV). In it, the crew encounters a form of government that is strikingly similar to the Nazi dictatorship. The actual plot of some episodes was also withheld from German viewers during the ZDF broadcast, which were shown but very alienated: In the episode "Space Fever" ("Amok Time") it is explained that Vulcans have the urge to themselves every seven years to mate, have to go back to the Vulkun for this purpose and experience an aggressive mental change. So in the original there is a life and death duel between Kirk and Spock. Only in the dubbed version are these events interpreted as Spock's fever nightmare.
In the original pilot film "The Cage", Kirk alias Shatner was not part of the film, the lead role of Captain Christopher Pike was played by Jeffrey Hunter. At that time, however, this film was not broadcast in the USA or in our country and was only shown much later (in 1988 in the USA and in 1993 on Sat.1) for the first time as part of a Star Trek special. When Starship Enterprise flew in series, Hunter was no longer available and was replaced by Shatner.
In contrast to many dark science fiction series that showed a war between humans and aliens, here - politically liberal - the cooperation between the races was thematized (with the half-human Spock as a link) and showed that advances in science and technology were increasing lead to a better world. Although there were enmities here too and the Cold War was reflected in some episodes, the positive tone prevailed - and from the second season onwards, the Russian Chekov ensured an even more balanced mix of nations on the bridge. The episode “Do you know Tribbles?” In particular showed how sweet and adorable science fiction can be, in which Uhura buys a Tribble during a mission, a small, furry cuddly toy that turns out to multiply at breakneck speed and eats tons. More politically relevant was that Starship Enterprise showed the first kiss between a white and a black on American television: Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura were, however, when they did it, not masters of themselves, but controlled by aliens.
Gene Roddenberry had invented the police operation for purely practical and financial reasons. The special effects for the landing of the spaceship would have been simply too expensive. Because of its late success, a Star Trek film with the original cast was released in 1979, ten years after the TV series ended, and many more followed. Since the 1980s, other television series with new actors have been filmed with Spaceship Enterprise - The Next Century (whose crew later also took over the ship in the movies), Star Trek - Deep Space Nine, Star Trek - Spaceship Voyager and Enterprise continued the success of the original and all (including the original) were repeated without ceasing on various channels.
The ZDF broadcast only 39 episodes the previous evening on Saturday, the other half of the one-hour episodes was shown by Sat.1 about 15 years later in German premiere. The series is available in full on DVD.
