Wouldn't it be outstanding if the "Where No Fan Has Gone Before: the restored, unaired, alternate pilot episode" was actually the original cut of WNMHGB?
The Digital Bits seems to think it is...

Update from Bill at the Digital Bits:

Now then... we've got a follow-up on CBS' announcement yesterday of the Blu-ray release of Star Trek: The Original Series - Season Three on 12/15. I asked longtime Trek veteran Mike Okuda what Where No Fan Has Gone Before might be, and he responded thusly: "It is the original cut of Where No Man Has Gone Before, the second pilot episode. The reassembled original cut of The Cage is also supposed to be included." So there you have it, straight from the source.
WOW!!!! Just WOW!!!!

That is dynamite news--just fantastic. They're throwing in the alternate cut of WNMHGB ?!?
I am so happy and hats off to them!!!

And by "reassembled original cut of the Cage"-----does that mean a version that is longer than any other commercially available cut of the Cage???

The old versions available up till now are the Balck & white/color version (sometimes with Roddenberry's intro & extro AND the all-color version. Both of these run 64 minutes (not including the Roddenberry parts)

Are you saying (or hearing) that ANOTHER version will be included???
If that's true, I don't think I can wait for Dec 15---I might just bust into some warehouse holding the set before the release date!!!
