Comments: “Where No Man Has Gone Before” is a powerful, action-packed episode where Captain Kirk must choose between loyalty to his friend and responsibility for his crew. After rejecting the first pilot, NBC finally signed aboard to launch the Star Trek series based upon the strength of the pilot version of this episode.
Despite its title, “Where No Man Has Gone Before” is the only episode in the regular run of the Star Trek series that does not include William Shatner’s famous “To boldly go…” voice-over during the opening credits.
