To date the following live-action episodes have been released:
  • The Captaincy
  • For Want of a Nail
Starship Farragut: the Animated Episodes:
  • Power Source
  • The Needs of the Many
Two shorter eps called "Crew Logs":
  • A Rock and a Hard Place
  • Just Passing Through.

Starship Farragut provides tropes examples of:

  • Action Girl: Don't mess with geologist Angela Bishop— you'll get a rock aimed at your head, or end up disintegrated with a phaser.
  • Klingon Scientists Get No Respect: Averted. The Klingons are very eager to get more Unobtainium for their new weapon.
  • Moment Killer: In A Rock and a Hard Place, Carter and visiting geologist (and old flame) Angela Bishop get interrupted by attacking Klingons.
  • Red Shirt: Averted. For a change, the typical redshirt Security guards are actually useful.
  • Shout-Out: To the scene in TOS episode "Charlie X" where Kirk wrestles with his security chief. Although, we never see Carter and Prescott wrestle.
  • Tomboyish Name: Lt. Commander Michelle Smithfield is always called "Mike".
  • Would Hit a Girl: Lt. Commander Smithfield gets knocked out by a Klingon. She gets him back, though.
