Track: "To Seek Out New Life" 

This track was originally called "Where No Man Has Gone Before" is the second pilot episode of the science fiction television series Star Trek. It was produced in 1965 after the first pilot, "The Cage", had been rejected by NBC. Reportedly, Lucille Ball, who owned Desilu Studios (where the pilot was produced), persuaded NBC management to consider a second pilot, thereby exercising a special option agreement it had with Desilu, because she liked Gene Roddenberry and believed in the project. The episode was eventually broadcast third in sequence on September 22, 1966, and re-aired on April 20, 1967. On July 12, 1969, it was the first episode to be shown in the UK by the BBC. 

Tracks: "Shore Leave on Risa" and "Risa" 

Designated as a "pleasure planet", Risa was an inhabited Federation planet. This planet was the homeworld of the humanoid Risians. It was orbited by at least two moons and located in a binary system about 90 light years from the Sol system. The planetary government was named the Risa Hedony. 

The Federation starbase Starbase 12 was located close to this planet. 

Track: "The Transwarp Incident" 

The Federation developed transwarp beaming by 2387. This transporter technology allowed the instantaneous beaming of living beings between planets and distant star systems, or even onto a starship traveling at high warp. The theory was postulated and perfected by Montgomery Scott. 

Track: "The Cloud Minders" 

"The Cloud Minders" is a third season episode of the original science fiction television series Star Trek, broadcast on February 28, 1969. It is episode #76, production #74, written by Margaret Armen, based on a story by David Gerrold and Oliver Crawford, and directed by Jud Taylor.

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" is the eighth episode of the third season of the original science fiction television series Star Trek. It was aired by NBC on November 8, 1968 and was written by Rik Vollaerts, and directed by Tony Leader (real name: Anton Morris Leader).
