After watching the 3 episodes on disc 1 of season 1 I have a question about episode order. It seemed to me that the third episode (Where No Man Has Gone Before) took place before the first to episodes on the disc (The Man Trap and Charlie X). A quick visit to the official Star Trek website revealed my suspicions were correct. Apparently the episodes are in the order in which they were first broadcast on tv.
As someone who never really saw much of the original series, this decision confuses me a little. Why were the episodes not shown in chronilogical order in their first broadcast? Why didn't they fix this in the dvd/hddvd set? Are the other seasons on disc set up this way also?
As for the HD DVD quality, I'm impressed by how good it looks considering how old it is. They must have worked quite hard to get it transferred so nicely. Was season 2 put out on combo disc as well or was the format war over before they got to it?
