Finally, finally, finally. Months ago it was announced the entire Star Trek library would come to Netflix Instant and now they’ve delivered. Well, it’s almost the entire Star Trek library. Available to stream is the Original Series, The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise . Deep Space Nine will become available in October.
If you want to feel particularly patriotic this weekendcheck out the episode, ‘The Omega Glory‘ from classic Trek. The Enterprise crew end up between warring human tribes, the Yangs and the Kohms. Of course, Yang and Kohm are derived from yank and comrade or commie with the whole thing being a Cold War allegory. All of this becomes apparent when they pull out old glory and Kirk reads the preamble to the constitution, as only Kirk can.
But wait! There’s more! In addition to sitting on your ass and marathoning Star Trek you can also now stream the entire X-Men: The Animates Series from the nineties. Fuck yeah, America! What a great way to spend our 235th birthday!
