Star Trek: The Original Series beams back into iTunes


Apple, which had quietly dropped “Star Trek: The Original Series” from its roster of iTunes downloadable programming, looks to have returned not only to iTunes the first season of this series but also a remastered version as well. This remastered version (which costs $56.99 as a season pass for the first season) has “dozens of new and higher-detailed visual effects” blended into the episodes.

Interesting, I’d like to see the new effects but there’s no way I’m paying that much for them.

Ah, looks like it’s gotten the George Lucas treatment.

I’ve seen these new CGI edits on a few episiodes… The changes and additions are largely new external ship views, with deep space and planetary replacements (no more cheap plastic model). I believe it to be a welcome edit to a pretty low-budget/capability production. In particular, the close-up alien mothership in the “Corbomite Maneuver” is quite surprising. Compared to the Lucas’ ILM stuff, ST-TOS is pretty campy, but I certainly don’t remember it being that way at the time… But in any case, although I love the additions and changes, purists will be enraged…. ;-))
