Has anyone been watching the broadcast of the Original Star Trek series that began 2 weeks ago?

For those who haven't heard, Paramount is going back and re-mastering each episode with new sound, new video and even more amazing, NEW special effects (digital/computer graphics).

They are not showing them in order for some strange reason, but I did manage to see the one this past Saturday: Devil in the Dark. All I can say is... WOW! I really don't recall the colors looking that crisp and bright, those guys in the red shirts REALLY stand out - no wonder they die so easily!

The new special effects were great too. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out.

Our local station played Balance of Terror last night, 'cept they screwed it up and kept replaying the first 15 minutes over and over... it felt like a temporal loop!

Michael,

Im in Central California and it shows here on Saturdays at 5pm on KMAX Channel 12 (for our cable system).

I'm sure it is different for everyone depending on where you live. I have a My Yahoo! page and just did a search for "Star Trek" on the TV listings module on that page. I'm sure anyone with a personalized home page like AOL, Yahoo or MSN should have the ability to search the local listings.

Good Luck!

Have they shown the episode where Romulan Commander Greedo shoots first?

I believe that was the 1st episode I missed here, so you should get to see Spock overact in "Devil in the Dark" next week! laugh

In the part that you saw, did you get to see any re-done special effects?

The shots of the Enterprise in space/orbiting a planet are first rate. Apparently they took measurements off of the large model that is at the Smithsonian for the scans for the computer model.

It's a UPN affiliate. (Aren't they merging with the WB?)

I wonder if they are going to do re-release of these remastered ones on dvd to squeeze some more money out of the fans. Sounds typical and I was just trying to decide which season I was going to buy first, now I'm starting to wonder if I should wait.

BTW, In my market it's on the CW (old WB).

It was WORSE than that! They had 'Flabba the Glut' spouting off some "parroting" sort of 'chat' with this "Man SULU" that had already taken place with "Greedo", of all people! Talk about fatuously, gratuitously insipid 'discussion', sheeeeesh!
"Tuco SHOT 1st! 'When you have to shoot, SHOOT! don't TALK'!"

I hope they do.

I held off buying them in the past as they were released as singles on VHS for $15 and on Laserdisc for around $20 or so (and possibly on DVD, but I'm not sure). With the way all the new boxed sets of TV shows by season are selling, this seems like a no brainer to me. Do a few Cast interviews, add some old footage of out-takes, cut scenes and bloopers and people would buy it.

In my area, I have a listing for Star Trek 2.0, but it doesn't look like what you're describing. It has "interactive features", whatever that is.

Hmmm... don't know what that is.

I'm really looking forward to seeing a lot of these old episodes. As campy as it was, there were some really good episodes and a lot of great moments in the series.

Some famous Trek lines that still find their way into our game nights...

Disembodied glowing brain voice: "20 quatloons on the newcomers!" (Many uses, but great when taking any kind of risky attack).
McCoy: "He's dead, Jim." (Said after a successful attack).
Spock: "He knows Dr...He knows." (Said after someone points out a now obvious blunder by another player).
Spock: "Yes. He has reasoned it out." (Said after someone realizes THE move to make).

How about you guys? Anyone else quote Star Trek during a game?
(Bonus points for figuring out what episode the above quotes are from)

Sinister Dexter,

I just sent that pic to two coworkers who are very big into Star Trek. I labeled the email "How to make Star Trek Better!".

Too bad one of the coworkers is my boss. Guess I'm gonna get fired now. hehe

No, but captain Kirk now gets sued for sexual harassement at the end of every episode.

Check out this pretty funny Star Trek video on youtube (and the others that are related). They have some logo for Star Trek 2.0 on them - not sure how it all ties in together.
