It inspired one of the most memorable episodes in the spin-off series Deep Space Nine"Trial and Tribble-ations. Spock Leonard Nimoy is fleshed out in "Amok Time" in which Spock is faced with the possibility of killing his captain and friend and "Journey to Babel" introducing Spock's father, played by Mark Sarek, in what would turn out to be a long-recurring role.

A new character, navigator Pavel Chekov Walter Koenigwas introduced; his Monkees haircut was intended to appeal to the younger audience, but he was also a Russian, which at the height of the cold war reflected Gene Roddenberry's optimistic vision of a more enlightened future. Other social-commentary opportunities presented themselves in "The Omega Glory," "The Doomsday Machine," and "Assignment: Earth," the last also one of those periodic opportunities to scrimp on the budget by time-traveling to an earlier version of Earth.

Another example was "A Piece of the Action," a comic episode set in the Roaring Twenties and memorable for, among other things, Kirk's teaching a made-up card game called Fizzbin.

In other significant episodes, "I, Mudd" saw the return of the bounder from season 1, "The Changeling" was the original inspiration for the first Trek feature film a decade later, "Wolf in the Fold" penned by the author of Psycho provides an example of the series' great writing, and "Mirror, Mirror" introduced the concept of the parallel universe inhabited by vicious, amoral counterparts of the regular crew, another theme later borrowed more than once, and to good emotional effect by DS9.

Customer reviews. How are ratings calculated? Instead, our system I Saw Three Ships - Various - Legends - The Christmas Collection (CD) things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon.

It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. Reviews with images. See all customer images. Top reviews Most recent Top reviews. Top reviews from the United States. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. I state this because Amazon jumbles all the reviews together for similar product versions making it impossible for shoppers in such cases to clearly determine which product the review applies to, and this matters greatly if you wish to obtain the version most suited to you.

When I set out to purchase the version that I would add to my collection it was quickly apparent that reviews were mixed concerning the Blu-ray versions and sorting out the differences would be difficult.

After some broad research outside of Amazon I found this set to be reliable considering the technicalities of playback but also for the nature of the content. I wanted not only the original version of the show but also the enhanced version, including the unaired versions of "The Cage" which some complained were excluded. This package does not disappoint.

The menus are "fancy" but not complicated. The sound is crazy good if you have the right hardware and if preferred the original mono audio is available. You get all the episodes in the original AND enhanced formats. You get two versions of "The Cage" the unaired episode slated as the pilot and later nixed. You can read the many other reviews about the enhanced version and like it or hate it I leave that to your own opinion, but as a Star Trek fan who has watched the original version for the better part of a lifetime I like both, IMHO.

The nostalgia that I revere for the original series can never be infringed but younger people won't understand it like those who lived in the days of lesser technology. For them I say better to enjoy it as the enhanced version for the memory of their own generation, go for it, it is quite remarkable.

Star Trek will go down in the annals of history as one of the greatest television series to date, and in my book rated G for everyone! One last note about the vendor I got my product from. I paid extra to have my purchase shipped overnight so as to lessen the handling in hopes of minimizing any damage. I received the product on time BUT received I Saw Three Ships - Various - Legends - The Christmas Collection (CD) in less than "new" condition.

I say this because when I opened the package the BD cases for season 1 and 2 were properly shrink wrapped like new inside a cardboard sleeve as like many DVD movies come BUT the season 3 BD case was not shrink wrapped inside the cardboard sleeve and when I removed it the front of I Saw Three Ships - Various - Legends - The Christmas Collection (CD) BD case the plastic that retains the labeling had been cut with either a knife or razor. This could have only happened at the manufacturer or during repackaging.

Also the cardboard sleeves had been taped on the outside making it impossible to separate the individual season cases without damaging the cardboard sleeves. Lessening the value of my collection.

In autumnNelson halted the Be-Bop Deluxe project, removed Tumahai and Fox from his immediate working band and replaced the name with the moniker Red Noise releasing the Sound-on-Sound album in February Harvest, who had insisted on naming it "Bill Nelson's Red Noise", refused to release the second Red Noise album Quit Dreaming And Get on the Beam which was largely recorded by Nelson with contributions on sax from his brother Ian rather than the more-obviously marketable five-piece band Harvest's execs had understandably expected.

The record remained unreleased in record company limbo. Meanwhile, with his producer from Harvest John LeckieNelson did some production and, in Nelson's case, sessions keyboards work for the band Skids[9] whose guitarist Stuart Adamson was an admirer of Nelson's musicianship. Nelson's manager Mark Rye negotiated with Harvest to buy back some of the unreleased songs for Nelson to release under his own name on his own label, Cocteau Records, which Nelson and Rye had set up.

The release contained bonus disc Sounding The Ritual Echo Atmospheres for Dreaming featuring experimental, ambient instrumentals which Nelson had recorded privately at his home. Nelson had already contributed music and released it under the title Das Kabinet on Cocteau to the same company's similar adaptation of Robert Wiene 's silent film classic The Cabinet of Dr. Inhe released the 4-CD box set Demonstrations of Affection. He was hired by English new wave artist Gary Numan to produce his album Warriorswith Numan saying that Bill Nelson was his "favourite guitar player, bar none.

Nelson also contributed towards several tracks on David Sylvian 's Gone to Earth Nelson was commissioned by Channel 4 to write music for the television drama series Brond. In the late s, Nelson signed to Enigma Recordswhich went out of business shortly after re-releasing his entire Cocteau catalogue. As the decade ended, Nelson suffered a series of personal setbacks, including a divorce, tax problems and an acrimonious dispute with his manager over his back catalogue rights.

In the case of one album, the unreleased SimplexNelson discovered his manager had been selling copies via mail order without Nelson's authorisation or knowledge; Nelson claimed he never received any royalties from these sales.

InNelson released Blue Moons and Laughing Guitars on Virgin which consisted of demos for a proposed band including four guitarists and two drummers which never materialised. John as producer with Roger Eno on the duo's album The Familiaron which Nelson also played guitar and other instruments.

This experience fortuitously not only sowed the seeds of Eno's, Nelson's and St. John's participation in the 'ambient supergroup' Channel Light Vesselwhich also featured Laraaji and Mayumi Tachibana, but also introduced Nelson to Voiceprint Recordswhose subsidiary labels [16] included All Saints and Resurgence, both of which would release a number of CLV and Nelson recordings over the next few years.

InNelson released two very different albums. Crimsworth Flowers, Stones, Fountains And Flames was an ambient piece which had provided the soundscape to an art installation. Practically Wired, or How I Became ByNelson's troubles with his former manager were resolved in a lawsuit which enabled Nelson to recover much of his back catalogue. In the late s, Nelson created the Populuxe label, with a distribution arrangement via Robert Fripp 's Discipline Global Mobilebut his relationship with them stagnated and Nelson's last release on that label was Atom Shop in Subsequent releases have been on other imprints such as Toneswoon as well as direct mail order and later internet order releases.

InNelson attended a first Nelsonica convention, set up in West Yorkshire by fans in his honour, taking with him drawings to sell to any interested parties. Nelsonica became an annual fixture in his calendar for the next decade or so. Honeytone Cody played one set, Nelson and his brother Ian played a second, while Nelson's newly assembled seven piece band The Lost Satellites, [20] which also included Ian, played a third.

Nimmo,p. The legend about sailing into landlocked Bethlehem can be traced back to the 12 th century when three ships brought the relics of the purported Wise Men to Koln, Germany. From this story evolved the English folk carol "I Saw Three Ships," which, it is thought, comes from the 15 th century. The "three ships" refers to the belief that there were three Wise Men — which comes from the number of gifts, although the number of Wise Men has been estimated from two to twelve over the centuries.

Over the passage of time, the Holy Family was substituted for the Magi. Ian Bradley gives a version from Kent-Sussex which mentions sitting under a holly tree and two travelers — Mary and Joseph — journeying to Bethlehem to pay taxes.

And, over the passage of time, as the text moved from village to village, and from country to country, the song acquired numerous different variations in texts and tunes as seen above.

I, gives the following lines as sung during the Christmas holidays about the middle of the sixteenth century, which bear a similarity to this carol: "All sones of Adam, rise up with me, Go praise the blessed Trinitie, etc. The entire carol, omitting the repetitions, which occur precisely as in the carol, "On Christmas Day in the morning," is comprised in the following words: -- " As I sat on a sunny bank On Christmas day in the morning, I spied three ships come sailing by.
