Animated Series Blu-Ray Plans
 
Hey all! A bit of exclusive news from our multi-part interview with Robert Meyer Burnett - plans are currently underway for a Blu-Ray release of Star Trek: The Animated Series. Rob also mentioned that he had a "crazy idea" for the release that, if he could pull it off, would be very interesting.

Also - Rob gave his verdict on the Remastered Star Trek: The Original Series Blu-Ray release.

Here's the relevant part of the interview: http://tng.trekcore.com/bluray/01162...rburnett6.html

TAS on Blu-ray; day one purchase for me.

And the original article reveals nothing more of this "crazy idea". Could be anything from an included "tool" to make your own Flash animations in TAS style to a hidden folder of M'ress "pr0n". Just couldn't "throw us a bone", could he?

Sincerely,

Bill

I wonder if the VAM will be animated, TAS style?

THAT would be a fun way to present extras. :)

I hope something will be done. I noticed at Best Buy that the Jackson 5ive cartoon is now on Blu-ray. If that can be on Blu-ray, so should the animated Star Trek.

Dead on. This was a cool interview and quite refreshing to hear from a Trek alumni rather than "it's Trek so it must be awesome."

You've absolutely nailed my feelings on this subject, thank you!

A music only track would be a crazy idea....

I'm still hoping for a full CGI remake. Keep the voices though.

Wishing futilely for something too expensive and not the least realistic. You might as well just make an entirely new series.

Not possible, since the music and sound effects were mixed on the same track. There are some Filmation DVDs that do have isolated music/SFX tracks for some episodes, but no isolatable music-only tracks exist.

To get a clean collection of TAS music tracks I suspect you'd simply have to get an orchestra together and recreate and re-record the music.

Isn't that something like the Varese Saraband releases of TOS music?

Same thing LitSF authors said and some still say about the original STAR TREK.

Only the series is still followed after forty years. Check back with me in four decades and tell me if ST09 is still remembered.
