Critics Consensus

Budget cuts leave the stars of Star Trek stranded among shoddy set pieces and clunky writing -- though even at its worst fans may still enjoy its campy delights.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Season 3

  • Apr 19, 2022
    I kind of lost my interest in this season because some of the episodes were not as great as the old seasons. However The Tholian Web is definitely the best episode in the season.
  • Apr 16, 2022
    LOL, the best of the TV-movie-animated saga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Mar 22, 2022
    kinda pales in comparison to the first two seasons
  • Dec 16, 2021
    Star Trek the Original Series is the best thing that have ever hit any screen!
  • Dec 25, 2020
    This is when the show starts to go downhill. It's just that this season is far from the quality of the first 2 seasons. The worst from this season is Spock's Brain, Plato's Stepchildren, The Empath, The Way to Eden and Turnabout Intruder. There are though many positives form this season because of the best episodes of the season which are The Enterprise Incident, The Tholian Web and All our Yesterday's. There are also episodes threat I think get too much hate like Spectre of the Gun, The Savage Curtain, Lights of Zetar and The Paradise Syndorme.

    I mean star trek is awesome
  • Oct 27, 2020
    Yeah another great awsome season
  • Jul 19, 2020
    they had big budget cuts in this season and it shows, even tho compared to the other two seasons its not great, it was still worth watching!
  • Feb 10, 2020
    Unfortunately, this was a weak season, Winning the title for so long, but Jar Jar Abrams came and this season rules when comparing to Jar Jar
  • Aug 07, 2019
    Oh, I remember this was cringe worthy. How they ended the last half of season two with such great shows only to follow them up with this awful last season. Still, they had some good shows in it. The whole feel of the show changed this season and we all felt it. It was common discussion at the time. The worst one was The Way to Eden. This last year they tried to cater to the hippies and lost it all to be cancelled that year. Luckily, the hard core Trekkies kept it going in syndication.
