Only a true Trekkie can tell the difference between the first and last episodes of Star Trek

Is this image from ''The Man Trap'' or ''Turnabout Intruder''?


When Star Trek premiered on September 8, 1966, nobody had seen anything like it. There was no need yet to call it "The Original Series." The colorful, exciting, thoughtful episode titled "The Man Trap" was totally unique.

It's hard to believe the entire series ran in under three years, considering its impact has lasted for decades. 

The series finale, "Turnabout Intruder," aired in June 1969. By then, the Enterprise crew had changed. Some of the familiar characters we all known and love are surprisingly not in one or the other of these episodes. Other things had changed, too. That's a clue.

See if you can tell "The Man Trap" apart from "Turnabout Intruder"!

12 of 15. I take issue with the photo used for question 10. I still would have gotten it wrong, but originally, none of the visited planets had rings. I know today's audience has different expectations, but isn't some of MeTV's purpose about nostalgia?

On other thing about "The Man Trap"--Crewman Darnell--who was played by Michael Zaslow (who of course would go on to play Roger Thorpe on "The Guiding Light")--has the distinction of being the first character to be killed off after being introduced in the history of Star Trek (a/k/a "phaser bait" or "redshirts", though Darnell in this case wore a blue shirt).

The actress who played "Janice Lester" in "STAR TREK"s final episode, "Turnabout Intruder" was played by Sandra Smith, who, 50 years ago, was a cast regular on CBS's "THE INTERNS" from Screen Gems in Fall 1970, which included Broderick Crawford, Mike Farrell (before "M.A.S.H." in 1975) and Christopher Stone, and an actress named Elaine Gifftos, who appeared on "THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY", also, 50 years ago!
