'''''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''''' ("TOS", 1966-1969) Set from 2265-2269 -- The one everyone has heard of (at the time, of course, it was just called ''Star Trek''). Captain James T. Kirk (WilliamShatner) leads the brave crew of the CoolStarship ''Enterprise'' on a mission "to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no man has gone before."

* RedShirt: TheTropeNamer! Members of the Operations Division (engineering and military services) were particularly likely to be used as the "victim of the week", as their jobs made them particularly likely to fall afoul of traps or the latest alien monster and this was an easy way to build drama by killing off nameless or clearly-minor characters. Strictly speaking, the name of the trope is only accurate in ''The Original Series''; whilst differing shades of blue were standard for the Science/Medical Division throughout all the series, Operations and Command were red and gold in ''TOS'' and then switched colors from ''The Next Generation'' onwards.

* AlwaysOnDuty: Averted. There are several episodes in which the captain and some or most of the main characters are not on the bridge when something important happens, though they quickly assemble on the bridge anyway. An example of this is the ''very first episode of Star Trek'', in which Captain Pike isn't on the bridge for several seconds while (then) Lieutenant Commander Spock and lieutenant José Tyler discuss an incoming sensor anomaly.

* NonStandardKiss: The Vulcans have a [[http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Vulcan_finger-touching finger-touching gesture]] that seems to be used as a kissing analogue. The basic motion is simply extending the first two fingers of the right hand and touching fingertips, but finger-stroking motions can be added for greater intimacy.

* {{Tie In Novel}}s: A huge range of novels based on all eras of the franchise (and the spaces in between) exists, including novelizations of several episodes and ''StarTrekNewFrontier''. Other than the novelizations, these are all officially declared ''non''-canon by Paramount and Creator/GeneRoddenberry. When Jeri Taylor was the WordOfGod on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', her original novels about the crew's history were considered canon. They aren't any more.

*** This is averted with Joe Sisko, a traditionalist restauranteur and cook who nonetheless supports his son with raising his family in space.

**The Augments. 72 of them was enough to commandeer one of the Federation's finest starships. And they captured another one years later, even with their numbers significantly reduced. Nineteen of them managed to steal a [[ProudWarriorRace Klingon]] warship and nearly wipe out a Klingon colony ''before they were old enough to drink.'' [[OneManArmy Khan]] took out dozens of Klingon troops and stole Starfleet's first warship (which he helped design) by ''himself.'' They can hear heartbeats, punch you across a room, tank the Vulcan nerve pinch or phasers set on stun, and catch up on centuries' worth of technical knowledge in weeks. In short: never turn your back on them, never let them read your technical manuals, and '''under no circumstances''' give them a starship.
