Disruptor Beam’s Favorite Kirk Moments

Today marks William Shatner’s 84th birthday (Happy Birthday, Captain!) and to celebrate we’ve gathered a few of our favorite Star Trek: The Original Series moments. Gorn? Tribbles? Time travel? Yep, all here, and more:

“Balance of Terror”

Season 1, Episode 14

The Romulan commander refuses to beam himself and the Romulan survivors to the Enterprise before their ship blows up.

"The City on the Edge of Forever"

Season 1, Episode 28

Back in Earth’s history, a heartbroken Kirk stops McCoy from saving Edith, and the three officers journey back through the Guardian, where they find time restored.


Season 1, Episode 18

Forced into mortal combat against the 8-foot tall Gorn starship captain, Kirk must use his wits and agility to survive.

“The Trouble with Tribbles”

Season 2, Episode 15

Easily one of Star Trek’s most iconic episodes, this particular favorite moment was also the inspiration for our tribble infested Captain’s Chair Photo Booth at PAX East 2015.

"Return to Tomorrow"

Season 2, Episode 20

Shatner’s legendary speech to Dr. McCoy in Return to Tomorrow wonderfully sums up Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic vision of the future.

Honorable mention: all the green women!
