Star Trek TOS Season 2 / Blu-Ray

Star Trek’s TOS second season began in September 1967 with “Amok Time”, which introduced actor Walter Koenig as Russian navigator Pavel Chekov, and granted viewers the first glimpse of Spock’s homeworld, Vulcan.

The season also includes such notable episodes as “Mirror, Mirror”, which introduces the evil “mirror universe”; “Journey to Babel”, featuring the introduction of Spock’s parents Sarek and Amanda; and the light-hearted “The Trouble With Tribbles”, which would later be revisited in a 1973 episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series and a 1996 episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Interesting tidbits:
There were some “upgrades” to bridge equipment made at the start of this season (most notably the helm console), but these changes aren’t always visible because first-season footage was used in many bridge scenes. You can recognize this footage when you see the viewing screen and the back of Sulu’s head – the navigator isn’t shown because Walter Koenig hadn’t signed on when this footage was filmed. The black viewer or scope at Spock’s library computer station was replaced with a white one (that came with a knob on the left side). A similar scope was added to Scotty’s engineering station.
