As of this morning, Netflix began streaming hundreds of Star Trek episodes. Right now, all of the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: The Next Generation
, Star Trek Voyager
, and Star Trek Enterprise
are available for streaming. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
will be available on October 1st.
Each series gets its own page on Netflix, with season tabs allowing you search and find any episode. You can add the series to your instant queue, or you can just click the play button next to any episode. Each episode streams commercial-free, and is available to subscribers in the USA.
This is the first time that Star Trek: The Next Generation
has been available digitally, and the first time Star Trek: Voyager
is available via streaming. The original Star Trek and Star Trek: Enterprise
are being shown in HD (720P). And the original series episodes are indeed the "remastered" versions featuring the new CGI digital effects (well worth watching, if you haven't seen them yet).
If you've been itching to watch some Star Trek, but don't own all the series on DVD, now you can sit down and enjoy them -- on-demand -- from the comfort of your nearest Netflix-ready device.
I bet you can guess what I'll be doing in the coming days!
