Apple offers $25 credit to Star Trek downloaders

After mysteriously removing and then returning “Star Trek: The Original Series” to/from the iTunes Store, Apple is now offering a $25 iTunes Card code to anyone who purchased the series’ first season before its removal. According to iLounge editor Jesse Hollington, the episodes were removed because they were “mixed” — some episodes were from the original series, while others had been digitally remastered and enhanced with new special effects.

Since the episodes re-appeared on the iTunes Store, they have been offered in both the original and digitally remastered versions, and are labeled as such. In addition, the previously removed “Star Trek: Enterprise” has also reappeared on the store.
