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.
Charles Starrett was a senior editor at iLounge. He's been covering the iPod, iPhone, and iPad since their inception. He has written numerous articles and reviews, and his work has been featured in multiple publications.
