^^ Almost flawless translation. In German "star" could equally refer to either a celestial body like the Sun or a planet. In the context of the opening narration it's "people settle on far away planets".

As you can all imagine the dance sequences were what everyone in the audience would always remember about the series.

Back in the 1960's it looked totally weird, but if you think of all the aerobic exercises we've seen in the past decades it starts to look less weird, or at least IMHO.
Not much sillier than this:


Or this scene from The Day the Fish Came Out (1967):



Maybe we should start a "Silly-Looking Dance" thread.
